Think of something like a 2-player Pitfall or Adventure. If one of the players (the networked player) moves off screen, he would just disappear, while player #1 of course continues to be the "focal point" that the game follows. Been considered extensively. Syncronization problems rear their ugly head. If both players are in the same room, which sprites do you use to draw them? Who collided with what on which frame? I can dream, can't I? ;-) You most certainly can...
