A scuba computer game? I was looking through the Mares website yesterday and came across this: http://www.mares.com/scubenginners.php?region=ALL

:smilie39:

I shouldn't laugh. I guess it would be good for the kids out there that like to scuba dive.

That Mares game could be fun for kids. Might get them interested in diving.

Yes but the graphics are so goofy, it would have to be very junior divers. Primarily and Anime style on land and a Doom (original) feel in the water.

Here is a random thought: wouldn't it be nice to have a console or pc game that you could use as layout prep for penetration on popular wreck sites? Heck, you could actually just use something like that for any dive site to learn terraine, common species in the area, hazards, etc.

I agree...something like a flight simulator...but for diving...

When we got Microsoft's Flight Simulator, one of the things to do was to see how many different ways there were to crash the plane. And all the frustations on trying to land.

I can see it now..how many ways can you kill the diver? How long before you are ready to kill the simulation's dive computer as it keeps beeping at you!

Things like how hard can you kick to the surface from 200 feet, under water knife/scissors fights, how close to 0 can I get my tank and still complete my dive, how much nitrogren can I absorb in a rapid fashion...

It would be so fun :smiley36:
