Sons of Anarchy Game?

A tweet by Sons of Anarchy producer Kurt Sutter indicates they are looking at the possibility of a video game based on the FX TV series about an outlaw biker gang, as he says: "soon to be taking meetings about an SOA game. have a major gaming company interested. trying to figure out costs, platform and timing." A follow-up tweet indicates this would likely be browser-based: "to do a quality platform-based game costs tens of millions and takes years. we're toying with the idea of a high-end browser-based game." He also expresses surprise that something he tweeted out to his 100K+ followers got noticed, as he does not seem to grasp how the twitter machine works. Thanks Blend Games.

This is a show I have on my list to watch on DVDs some day. But I'm not sure I understand why anyone thinks it's a good idea to make a game based on it.

Unless they're thinking up something unique, like an RTS Charming town builder or something, GTA:LOTD already filled this niche. I discovered that one when I first started watching SOA and it scratched any itch I had for an SOA game.

I've never understood the appeal of bikers. I've always viewed them as dirty criminal scumbags.

I've always viewed them as people who ride motorcycles.

Kind of like people who pirate games. Or threaten to pirate games.

Might be ok, as long as you can play Jax not as a whiny pussy (like on the show) ohhh and if you could tighten up his asshole so he doesn't strut around.

I've always viewed them as antisocial loaners who don't see anything good from "society" and created their own brotherhood.

Yeah, as SomeDude said, Lost and the Damned did a great job of "outlaw biker" gameplay. I'd say that expansion is the high water mark for this game. That said, seeing that this is going to be browser-based, expect another shitty game like Battlestar Galactica Online.

Do those antisocial, or loners, really create brotherhoods? : )

Well you said you didn't understand it. But people always like entertainment about criminal scumbags.

Mr Leela aka Sutter, look it up, there knows how-to use twitter and was being tongue in cheek. While not on the level of a Breaking Bad it uses the biker angle as the setting instead of the usual lawyer, cop, fireman, doctor drama motif.

I'm not a biker, and I work around a bunch of them to know they can be... different. They certainly aren't the types I socialize with outside of work. I still watch and enjoy Sons of Anarchy. Of course, it goes without saying the game will be non-gamer-focused cash-in drek unless by some miracle the developers are actually given sufficient time and resources to make something halfway decent.

A brotherhood of rape, violence, prostitution, drugs, murder, harassment and intimidation.

Or a brotherhood of bored, disenchanted, wealthy white collar types who are trying to find some sort miniscule joy in their career driven, suburbanite Hell.
