I was watching one of my favorite movies called Kontrol,
(a film shot in Budapest, Hungary completely underground)
and one of the things the characters do is race the
subways (railing). The whole time I'm watching, I'm thinking
"I cant wait to try that!". In the movie, two dudes wait
for a train to leave then jump on the tracks and start running.
They have to get to the next platform before the next train,
or else...SPLAT! Unfortunately, the subways are two tracks
wide on GTAIV so I had to pretend that the subway was on
a single inescapable track.

I'm not going to waste your time telling you all the ways I
raced the subway train, but it did involve a lot of imagination.
If you've heard of the movie, much less seen it, that helps.
It was funny and nerve racking at the same time.

What other game inspires you to play it from watching
a movie? Twenty years ago, if they came out with a game
where you only race a train like this, it would've been sweet.
Now it's just a side game I thought of by watching an obscure
movie. happy.gif

Anyway, if you're tired of the Olympics, start your own "track"
and field. Hopefully the next GTA will have a single track
subway for underground thrill seekers like me. cool.gif
(And no I didn't see damn ratman! rolleyes.gif )

PS If you have seen the movie-how cool would it be to be a
ticket inspector on this game!

Sounds like fun, I'll have to check that movie out. You could also do something like trying to run across a busy road without being hit, which would be hard with the new physics, or get 3 or 4 stars and you have to get from one side of broker bridge to the other without being hit, shot or killed. Man this is cool I'm gonna try it right now biggrin.gif
