Perhaps in response to Nintendo's successes in turning real life activities into profitable video games, EA is bringing Air Traffic Controller: Airport Hero Narita to the PSP. If you think that sounds boring, check out this description of the gameplay, courtesy of Kotaku.com:

"The game, under development by Sonic Powered, puts you in control of operations at Tokyo's Narita Airport as you deal with inbound and outbound flights, radar, messages, runways, taxing and gate selection. A challenge mode has you dealing with emergency landings and bad weather."

Why escape to lands of mystery and action, when you can escape to somebody's stressful job? Because you aren't getting paid. Air traffic controllers don't shell out forty bucks for the privilege of keeping flight schedules organized and maintaining safe, controlled environments, they do it because it lets them buy food, clothing and shelter.

With Grand Theft Auto as my witness, if people get paid to be responsible, they pay to be irresponsible, and this is why EA's game should be called Air Traffic Demolisher: Emergency Exit, or maybe Drunk Air Traffic Controller. Those are some flights we might be tempted to book.
