We all know that the Wii is a big hit. We can make linux just as successfull with these mini ideas:
- Make a program (Ubuntu Game Browser) that is like adept or synaptic but only shows games (and emulators) that can be installed/removed with proper description and screenshots. This program would be automatically installed in Programs/Games
- Help financially projects like stepmania, frets on fire, sim-city like games etc. Games that are popular and would be successful on other platforms too, or mimic other successful games exclusively in linux. Make these available in the repositories and be sure to always have the latest version.
- Make a subpage on ubuntu.com for games. Also, games should be able to send "achievment points" or high scores to this page to show the top100 gamers for each popular game. There could also be an online matchmaker here
- Make easy to use interface in gnome and kde to configure gamepads, joysticks, dancepads, wheels etc. Be sure to support out of the box the wii controller, xbox360 controller etc...
