Hef: Tthe Videogame
Well, sounds like a good enough idea to me. In a planned videogame (likely to come with an M rating), players will be able to take on the persona of Hugh Hefner, Playboy magazine magnate and perennial partier, as they build up their own magazine empire and strive to live out "the ultimate Playboy lifestyle".
No word yet on whether gamers will collect Viagra power-ups or magical smoking jacket armor upgrades, but I have to admit, shallow fellow that I am I gotta have this game 'cause the guy's my hero. What other seventy-year-old could get away with the stuff he does and not be pilloried by society?
