gamenation Video Game Theme Park Wants to Be in Your State, MaybeGame Nation wants to be the first video game theme park, but it can’t do that without a home, so now the company’s looking for a state in which to settle down. Billed as “the world’s first experiential video game theme park and resort,” Game Nation is probably not what you’re thinking. There’s no mention of specific video game licenses, like Mario or Sonic the Hedgehog. It’s more about being in a place that’s modeled after the world of video games. Says the tagline: “Visitors will become players as their dreams and fantasies come to life in adventures yet to be told. You will become anything you like and live out the character you create. But this is no game. It’s real!” Sounds kind of creepy, right? Read on for the pitch to your local chamber of commerce.Game Nation says it can bring the following benefits to its host location:10,000 to 15,000 jobs for construction alone86,000 to 113,600 new jobs in totalA $10 to $20 billion impact on the local economy.Seems a little too good to be true, considering there’s no information in the press release on where Game Nation is getting the money to build a massive theme park and add billions of dollars to your local economy. But hey, if I was a chamber of commerce chairman, I’d certainly be all ears. [via GamePolitics]
