I think it is a contributing reason why I struggle with personal projects as I have trouble coming up with ideas for games. Just now however I have been inspired, or at least have the start of something that I find very interesting. I went to Google, and the 'doodle' for the day was of Howard Carter. If you don't know who he is, he's the guy that was part of the team that uncovered King Tutankhamun's tomb in Egypt. Not a big deal or anything right? I LOVE Egyptian history, I think it is one of the most fascinating subjects in history, and I wish more classes were available at my school because I would take them in a heartbeat.
Now I don't know what kind of game I want to create, but I think having an Egyptian back drop would be pretty neat. Like God of War, but with Egypt as the settings would be amazing but out of my skill set
Anyway, it is a start, we'll see how this goes.
