Take an old game. Put it online. Give the control to the people....thousands of people. What you will obtain is chaos. Beautiful chaos. In one word: VIRAL! Official Description: TwitchPlaysPokemon is stream that lets you play Pokemon with a lot of other people by typing commands into chat. It was created as an experiment to test the viability of this format, the way people interact with the input system and the way they interact socially with each other. From Wikipedia: Developed by an anonymous Australian programmer and launched on 12 February 2014, the stream became unexpectedly popular, reaching an average concurrent viewership of over 80,000 viewers (with at least 10% participating). By 22 February, the stream had reached a total of over 26 million views overall, peaking at 120,000 concurrent viewers, and an estimated 658,000 users having participated. We are on day 13 now (~12d 19h 20m), with ~29,100,000 total views and 50,000 people currently watching.
