Game ideas?

Well I know that apparently there are trillions of game ideas out there. But out of those trillion I'm sure only about a couple hundred million are for pick up and play games.
Due to the lack of pick up and play game ideas, I have been unable to get an idea for a pick up and play game.

Anyone have any good ideas for a quick game?

Excite Bike rocks, still got the NES Game at home.

I always wanted to play a game where you are the bad guy. Imagine Castlevania. In my game you wouldn´t be the hero, you would be in command of the baddies, you would specify where they will be placed around the level and how they´ll attack when they face the hero. You would set up traps, and define Boss Attacks depending on the current power ups the hero gained. So its vice versa, instead of you controlling the hero, you´d see him trying to get through the level you designed. A bit like Dungeon Keeper if you will. Think outside the box =)

Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try that different approach out!

Anything with unlockables/ achievements, an in game shop with loads of gear, a perfect difficulty increasing level, loads of levels and the perfect pick up and play formula! If only I knew what that was :/
