Google Earth as game engine

ships_queen_mary_2_manhattanShips is a serious application in which you take control of a variety of barges, container ships and cruise liners, and drive them around the world. The application is built around the Google Earth browser plugin and features an onscreen user interface added to the usual Google Earth view.

If you have the Google Earth plugin installed, visit Planet in Action to play Ships right now. Also, see here for case study notes about using Google Earth as a game engine.
