Around 1997 I had this same idea...that someone would build a first-person game using a map of the real world. It would be awesome to see my house in virtual form, and walk around my neighborhood in a game. It's still a cool idea, but it shouldn't violate any other company's terms of use, and just being able to shoot innocent bystanders is pretty crappy.

And don't tell me you don'y know how to dl a YouTube video..

could have been interesting if it was scripted where the Street view is used as background for character gameplay(including AI). Such a game would never run out of non-repetitive scenery, making it the biggest open-world gameplay.
Now, it only looked like someone pasted a transparency over a screen where streetview was displayed. Meh.

This video is not from Google Shoot, it was done in video editor (it is said in author's comments in the end). Quick search in youtube will find you real trailer

nevermind the google maps terms of service, what about commercial (i.e. criminal) copyright infringement on art and sound assets from modern warfare 3?

[citation][nom]memadmax[/nom]Ahhh, that sucks....With a little bit of work, it could be an MMOFPS =D[/citation]
That would be MAG or any other FPS games that are out there. Like C.O.D. and Battlefield for instance.

mag... not so much, i believe its called Planetside is the only mmofps that i know of, and it suffered due to sever fragmentation on its expansion.

a true mmo fps would be awesome.

hey i thought this was a good idea. wouldn't a game be much more involving if you were to be playing in your neck of the woods? perhaps even being able to enter the house you grew up in (imagine if it does not even exist anymore, wouldn't that be excellent?)
