Future of video games

Postby Nick1984 on Sun Nov 28, 2010 4:38 pm

What videogames do think we'll be playing in 10-30 years?

Tiger Woods 14/Virtua Tennis 5 (2015) - Having now fully worked out how to use the PlayStation Move, developers can now make games that fully simulate ball sports, these are now the main tool used to practise sports and is starting to be taken seriously by professionals.

FIFA 21 (2020) - Full player body movement is controlled by the Kinect 2, every kick is perfectly recreated online with realistic ball physics.

Starcraft 4 (2030) - All tactics and controls are done using a brain sensor which eliminates the RSI which has lead to Korean professionals retiring in their early 20s. Following success in Korea (due to fast net connections) Startcraft has joined the Olympics, FIFA World Cup and SuperBowl as one of the biggest spectator sports.

Final Fantasy XX (2035) - Following the singularity, all NPCs (non playable characters) in the game are now super intelligent. Starting off with knowledge programmed into the game, these characters learn from the player to personalise each player's experience. Due to semantics, characters are also able to hold lengthy conversations with the player regarding the game world, or be able to learn about the real world

Second Life: Earth (2040) - Building from Second Life, Micazook Project X and Google Earth, players can now move around a 100% accurate version of virtual Earth right down to detail visible to the human eye thanks to advances in computer graphics. This was built with the help of augmented reality phones where images taken could be tagged with geolocational and orientation properties. Unlike the real world, this virtual world has now laws.

Cloud gaming could really bring gaming to the masses. Rather than buying an expensive computer/console which is full of sophisticated powerful technology, everything is done on online servers (3D graphics processing etc...), player's control inputs are uploaded via broadband, and the resulting images are sent back. Consoles would only need to be powerful enough to receive controller input, send input over broadband, and display HD video.

The most exciting development in games for me will be full-immersion technology (where you're actually IN the game, through all 5 senses). Not only will this be an incredible gaming experience, but you could literally experience anything you wanted. You could travel around the world from your living room, spend Christmas with family members living thousands of miles away, visit Pluto without moving an inch, and you could fly! The possibilities are endless. Really exciting prospect and something I can't wait to see. It's probably the technological advancement I'm most anticipating.

I was thinking more about the next 10-20 years. Also the full immersion thing doesn't sound like a videogame.

Guess alot of that stuff will be like playing a game with PlayStation Move or Kinect. Everything I posted was guess work.

Er, rape prostitutes by standing in your living room and making thrusting movements infront of the Kinect, you've played Kinect right?

The biggest problem is how would you walk around a big 3D world when in reality you're standing/sitting in your living room. Maybe we'll still need joysticks and controllers to move around large areas.
