I just gotta get this off my chest

I really am getting tired of the sudden plague of "Hidden Object" games that have been infesting the PC gaming racks lately (and some sections of the Wii). WTF is this suddenly, that old Highlights magazine??!?! And what pisses me off the most is that it baits you in with a cool cover or title or premise that would be awesome as a point-n-click or some other game that actually has GAMEPLAY in it, (or effort) then that promise and awesomeness gets flushed down the drain when I look on the back (hoping to have found another point-n-click adventure game or something along those lines) and realize it's just a frikkin' Hidden Object game. And there's so many of them. It's annoying.

Something I'd like to see

I'd love to see Red Storm and Ubisoft tackle Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan character, without any movie tie-ins I mean. Either adapt one of his other Jack Ryan books (Cardinal of the Kremlin, Without Remorse, Debt of Honor, etc.) or a wholly new story. I'd personally see it done in a mixture of "Uncharted meets Alpha Protocol" with huge helpings of political intrigue, espionage, and whatnot.

Would just be nice to see Jack Ryan back.
