The Future of Gaming?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN! This is my first post so be critical.

When people talk about the future of gaming they generally talk about the next 5 years or so. I want to talk about gaming in 50 years or so. Graphics are already becoming incredibly advanced. In a few years time let us assume they have reached the point of photo realism. What comes next?

Perhaps 3d will pick up and in 20 years we will have photo realistic 3d games. Now what? Looking at the battlefield 3 super simulator article (I'm too lazy to link it) let us say we all have that but with 3d and photorealism.

We are now 50 years in the future playing on 17Thz, 100 core processors with 16 Tbs of memory and 5 petabyte SSDs. What now?

We are basically having a real life experience in a game without the usual dangers that come from playing "militairy battle (FPSs)." Why leave the house? But after this point dose gaming simply die? Do we all just stop playing? post your ideas and comments below.

Thanks!

i think technology has slowed down.

think about it, from the late 80s up to the early 00s technology changed drastically. internet didn't even become popular until the early 90s.

technology is hitting a limit at the moment with silicon chips and the like, but idk, we could progress -

My personal opinion - world ends around 2020-2025

due to food, water, political and religious fights, etc.

Personally I don't want photo realism. It won't seem like a game to me.

In the near future,where the current generations of gamers, who are still able to enjoy gaming, the level of detail will increase to the point of almost unlimited. Real life physics systems will make 3d worlds completely interactive, not like frostbite engine, but literally every element in a game world will be made up of thousands of particles, and they will be programed to react like the physical materials they represent.

I am sure some companies, like Nintendo, will come up with all kinds of ways to make the movements of real life incorporate into the game world. But most hardcore gamers will not be able to do a cross fit workout for 3 hours of gaming, so wasd or something like that will stay at the forefront of interaction for some time.

Detail is the immediate feature, concept changes will open up new types of gaming at some point, but we need a couple more Mark Zuckbergs before that happens.


tl;dl - watch the video.

I dunno about 3D becoming completely mainstream, not everyone can see 3D images/moving images (obviously I mean TV/Cinema etc. Not real life), alot of people have borked eyes, or get headaches and/or motion sickness from 3D movies/games. Gives me a sick headache.

Also, dunno about photo-realism, I don't think it'll necessarily go that way, it'll just look incredible and realistic, kinda like Gran Turismo 4's intro on the PS2, where the guys are walking away from the shot in hazy heat. On a 21" and under TV, that still looks absolutely amazingly realistic.
