Re: about time we got another person on the moon again

Sounds great for a golf course :)

Back in the mid nineties, I was offered a job out in Austin, Texas. The company had been contracted to make a video game of Lunar Golf, where the basic premise was golf with less interesting backdrops and super huge hit distances. I would have taken the job, but couldn't, in the end, for visa reasons (or lack thereof). Anyway, about four months after I was out there visiting the company, a well known game magazine (I forget which one - it's not important) published an article about the worst game ideas of all time. Lunar Golf weighed in at #3. Prompting the publisher to rather swiftly drop the project like the lead balloon that it was.
