I've been thinking along the lines of...when do we really enjoy or find useful our sense of smell and taste?
Smell has lots of uses--clok mentioned smelling smoke. Smelling gas, gunpowder, etc. I could imagine a detective game where you can smell a vial and determine what kind of poison it is. I've read some Agatha Christie novels, and she makes a point of describing the smell of the poison--IIRC, anything that smells like almonds is bad, bad, bad!
Smell & taste are closely related, so they say.
We probably get the most satisfaction from taste by eating, of course. That's highly pleasurable, and I think we also enjoy playing with our food!!! Thus, Mama's classic "Don't play with your food!" They even make PlayDoh for kids that smells just like sweets...Not sure why, since they're not supposed to eat it! But hey...just going with the idea of playing with food. Anyway to make a videogame with that?
Work with me here a bit...so you get a 3D printer--those have been coming down in price. Then you have a game where you're building stuff; minecraft maybe. If you get it right, you can print your creation--and then EAT IT! That sounds like a real winner to me.
