"A helicopter focused flight sim"
I think the helis in San Andreas control like that.

Patient Zero sounds like a cool idea.

DC Universe Online is a game where you play as a hero or villain in multiplayer...

DC universe is an mmo. I was thinking more along the lines of Infamous with Grand Theft Auto style MP games. Or maybe CoD. I keep hearing good things about that one.
The other thing that will make #2 new and unusual (not necessarily innovative) the character creation is for sp and mp. Aren't too many action adventure games where you can create your own player character.

Heck, I want to see a GTA, Demon's Souls/Monster Hunter with a touch of Castlevina title that's just one big ruined city you have to explore. The main character either has cybernetics or psychic/magic abilities and limited flight.

You just described Rifts.

What I think would work well with your patient zero idea is the mechanic of the titular Patient Zero's physical condition degrading over time, making it harder and harder to accomplish tasks using this character alone.

It'd be fun, starting out as a just-infected zombie, with the purest strain of the virus, allowing you to run extremely quickly and move quite deftly, as well as vicious attacking capabilities. So you start off initially like a third person, stealth action game.

But the goal is to spread the infection quickly and effectively, as soon you will find that PZ is unable to maneuver as he/she once did and is no longer you're best unit for infection, due to the progression of the virus symptoms. But, being patient zero, this zombie's strain also controls the others, with this ability becoming more and more powerful over time, allowing you to engineer new infected units.

The game would then be a mixture of top down RTS and third person action, allowing you to control your hordes strategically as well as zoom in on particular zombies who have special abilities and take direct control in third person as before, such as tank zombies, gun-toting undead special-forces zombies, walking infection bomb zombies etc.

Patient zero could at the end be some sort of monstrous blob of zombified neural tissue, a hive-mind of the zombies.

Pretty cool, eh?

#5 - They're definitely out there.
#4 - Neat idea.
#3 - Well, there's....Sonic Free Riders *Vomits in mouth*
#2 - DC Universe Online

#1 - Too ambitious.....like, times a billion. No one is going to spend time creating even a rough version of ALL of Europe and sell it at $15 a pop. And having a bunch of genres of gameplay, too.....it's just not going to happen. We all dream of that "master game" but it will never come to realization.

I did lowball the price a bit didn't I? It would be an ambitious undertaking. I'll agree with that. If it can't all be done at once then.... cazzo. Maybe something like Just Cause 2, with a great big map.
