A Towing Video Game Idea

Have you ever played the video game Grand Theft Auto and just had fun doing all the tow truck missions? I sure did. That’s partly why I came up with an idea for a towing video game. Here’s where I’ll explain my idea.

To get started I’ll expound on who I think would do a great job at making this video game. The towing in Grand Theft Auto is already amazing, though a bit clunky. And I’m talking about GTA 5, not the older ones, although you can still do towing in the older ones. Because they did such a great job with it I think this tow truck game would be best if was made by Rockstar Games, the same people who made GTA.

Now before I describe the details of the game let me tell you why I think this game would be so fun. I don’t think it would be something tow truck drivers would want to play but all the gamers who love truck simulator games might jump all over it. And if you added humor to the game by making it a bit goofy and exciting it might be even more fun.

Towing Missions

For missions I got some good ideas. To start, the gamer will have to get good at reversing the tow truck in first person, using the rear view mirrors to line the truck up. Then, he’ll have to get out of the truck to hook it up while people are coming up and trying to fight you. Kind of like repossession. But when you get the car hooked up to the hitch, you’ll have to escape from pursuers. These are no ordinary towing missions. These are dangerous, high risk and high reward challenges in an open world. And you’re not allowed to hurt anyone so every time you crash you fail.

Later, when you’re a higher level in the game, the missions will get harder and when you accept repossession contracts from government agents you’ll have more freedom to crash and speed. I got another good idea from a friend who does towing Barrie Ontario services. He told me that the hardest part of towing is making sharp turns in tight corners, especially when you’re towing something large. So I think a good mini game for side missions would be to drift on a track while doing heavy duty towing.

This would be the perfect game to hook up a steering wheel to because, although it’s not a racing game, it’s all about your virtual driving skills. So the driving physics should be ultra realistic even though the game is goofy in nature. You could also make it more simulator-like by getting rid of the goofy aspects but then I might not play it. If someone makes this game I want it to be fun.

Any Ideas?

If you like this idea and have any opinions or ideas to make it even better, then please contact me because in the future I might be getting in touch with a developer to make it a reality. So far it’s just an idea and I’d be glad if someone else made it so I don’t have to. Consider this idea in the public domain. But I’d still like to hear any ideas you might have.

Thanks for checking this out. The video game industry is still very young and it’s up to young people to continue it into the future. So follow your dreams and let’s make it happen!
