Realistic issues that come with age & accidents – scenario belowSeptember 30, 2020 at 1:17 pm
It would be great to incorporate a system where once you hit a certain age you may develop loss of vision or hearing, your body sometimes starts to fall apart and you start getting aches and pains you never had before. Therefore, I’m hoping the developers can introduce this for our ‘senior’ paras. Id also like to see things like a kid falling off a bike and breaking her leg, seeing the doctor, getting a cast and having her friends sign it. There should be an option to turn this on or off as well if you didn’t want smaller annoying details that I think make these games all that more exciting :). This is something I would love to see happen:
Your senior para is watching his favourite tv show on paraflix (<<ISNT THAT CUTE) when his grand-daughter yells for him from the other room. As he goes to stand quickly he notices a sharp pain in his hip (obviously we wont know he has a sharp pain but for your imagination lol). He calls his doctor who asks him to come in (goes out of game for a few minutes visiting the doctor) and once returns comes back with his diagnosis (or can receive in the mail or via phone a day later). You have a bad hip and have three options: surgery that will cost $XXXX that has 90% success rate (which drops below 70% if your over 85years old) take pain medication for a week until you can afford surgery or do a variety of ‘exercises or stretches’ to regain your strength (optional with or without medication – with meds takes two weeks to recover and without takes three weeks to recover). You decide to stick with the meds as you cant quite afford the surgery yet. Each pill would last a few hours and the pain (felt as an emotion) would return at the end of the period, at this point you can take another to be pain free (this would be your ‘cheaper’ option whereas surgery would be your more ‘expensive’ option and exercise and stretches free). Overall surgery will defeat the problem instantly if successful, pain medication will keep you pain free so you can continue your day-to-day easier (also making the exercises and stretching easier as you wont be in pain) the exercises and stretches are your annoying, slow but FREE option to conquer your injury/illness.
Obviously I’ve thought into it a bit but it doesn’t even have to be that complex although the more options and pros and cons for each option the more realistic decision making is and exciting as your have varying paths to watch your para go through and see what they have overcome in their life. Like with a kid breaking her leg, id love to have a record for each para with their statistics like highest grade, highest position in a job, how many time they broke a bone and what bone was it, how older were they when it happened, just all sorts of things that you could compare your paras with. If this is an online game this would be a great function to check out other online players stats.
I know its long but I do hope you take the time to read and enjoy this idea as much as I do 🙂
