If you could would you play games on boxee? Simple games.. ie solitaire, blackjack, suduko, wordsearch, crossword, tetris?

Yes, possibly. But how would they be controlled? Just your regular remote? That would be a pain in the ass.

For simple games like tetris, a remote control works fine.


I vote for emulator support (ZSNES (http://www.zsnes.com/), Mupen64plus (http://code.google.com/p/mupen64plus/), etc...). Could be controlled very nicely with one of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826127209

This is a great idea and simple Flash games would be more appropriate as they are a dime a dozen and 99% portable across platforms... Not only that we can pick and choose which ones would work with a easy control scheme... This would be a good place to start... But we would have to find the games specific for using a remote... IE Up Down Left Right Spacebar etc instead of mouse...

Will be cool to see this happen... Maybe spawn an entire BoxeeGames site...

I'm working on creating a framework and some games currently that use simple up,down,left,right and space. Still very rough and there is no plugin yet. I am almost finished with the first game Klondike.

I will definitely want games.

Good Idea.
