BLiX: the U.N. Sweeper (Xbox)

Do you know this man? He's Hans Blix, the Chief U.N. weapon inspector, and he has a very important job to do. He's been instructed to take his rag tag group of private citizens to make sure Iraq doesn't have any weapons of mass destructions (as opposed to the weapons to eternal love and hope).

In video games you can take control of just about anybody you want, be it a fire fighter, a cop, a soldier, or even a short, scrawny Italian plumber. So why not take control of the ultimate crime fighter of 2002?

As the Chief U.N. weapon inspector, it's Hans' job to address the press, and generally act as a conduit between his team and everybody else. Depending on how well he does his job, the United States of America may or may not get the support of the international world when going to war with Iraq.

As a video game, though, Hans would be able to root out the weapons (assuming they have them), restore order to Iraq, and best of all, look good doing it thanks to a million on screen polygons, courtesy of Microsoft's Xbox! And don't think that Hans hasn't thought of everything, using the Xbox's hard drive, you can record what songs you want him to take via his I-Pod on his journey to the middle of nowhere. So, if you feel like putting a few Michael Bolton songs up next to the new Flaming Lips album, feel free, nobody is going to complain about your eclectic taste in music . except for maybe your roommate.
