    I was at Best Buy yesterday, and was looking at computer games, seeing the newest 'tycoon' simulations, like seaworld tycoon, and one I would like to try, Mall of America tycoon. Call me a nerd, but I like these types of games.

    Then I saw one that made me laugh, and want to buy it just to try it, though I didn't want to spend $20 on a game that might not be as fun as it looks. It was "Prison Tycoon". Seriously. Here is the description from the website:

    http://www.prisontycoon.com/pages/intro.htm
    I wonder if you can simulate REAL prison life, like gang issues, beat-downs, and riots? Can you open fire on an escapee? The site doesn't specify...

    Has anyone else here played this game? I might actually want it for Christmas, but I want to know if it is any good.

    Sounds to me like someone needs a healthy dose of Grand Theft Auto. Or True Crime, if you prefer sticking on the law's side.

    Tim has the newest GTA game...I can't stand listening to it because of the violence, and the cRap music. I won't even let him play it if Nathan is awake. But Tim is an adult and I can't stop him from playing it, but I do ask that he not play it with Nathan around.

    he also plays Call of Duty on the computer and is hinting (DAILY!!!) that he wants the newest version for x-mas...sigh. I don't like that game either because if he plays it without his headphones on, it sounds like I am in a war-zone. Think about walking in the door after a long day, saying 'honey, i'm home' and then hearing the ratta-tat-tat of gunfire? Very disconcerting. Of course, this is if he gets home before me, which is unusual with his new job.

    My Dad's very proud of his home theater, and his favorite movie to show it off with is Saving Private Ryan... I sympathize!
