Apologies if this has been discussed to death somewhere that I've missed, but I'm wondering what mechanics people would really like to see used that have either been overlooked or used rarely. I think many of us have had that idea: "Man, it would be cool to use that
in an ARG..." without knowing how to make us of it or having an ARG to put them into. I'm interested in your ideas, big and small. On the general end, do you wish more ARGs used telephones? Snail mail? Or more specific mechanisms, like I remember seeing a thread somewhere on using World of Warcraft as a vehicle/mechanic. Crazy ideas are welcome, too - maybe you had a dream once that an ARG you were playing required you to operate a robot remotely? How did it play out?
I'm hoping for some collective brainstorming here - I know some people collect their random ideas for their own use, but if you have something you don't think you'll use and you'd just like to see it somewhere, I want to know about it! And yes, I would like to co-opt some of these for my own use, but hopefully others will be inspired by your wacky thoughts, too!
