when do you think games will become so realistic, they can't be seperated from the real life..

    the head-line said it all<br>
    cause i was watching some movies of the GF3 with the wizard & the lizard & others, and i thought, MAN , THIS IS THE REAL THING
     
  2. Look at a game that EA is about to "release". Majestic. It integrates the game with your LIFE. IT will call you @ 2 A.M. (if you allow it too) with a tip on a ne'er-do-well company. IT will page you when a "buyout" is about to go down. IT never sleeps, IT only feeds. IT WILL BECOME YOUR LIFE! <br>

    Depends on your definishion of realistic, the most realistic is that used in star trek, using photons to creat solid images with artificial intelligence.

    i reckon it will all depend on the graphic artists of the future...if they can draw realistic...it'll be realistic...sooner than later i hope <IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif"> <br>

    hard one hilburt....i'll try<br>
    realistic is when you can't see the difference between a computer rendered moving arm (example) and a real moving arm
     
  9. Reality is simply the way people perceive things. One person's reality may be another's fantasy (or nightmare). As for computer games the only way they won't be able to be spereated from real life is if technology was developed to actually jack into your mind and control the electrical impulses sent from your brain to the rest of your body. You could trick your mind into thinking its real, but it never will be. Eventually you will have to shut the video game off and return to your so called "realistic" life. Unless you become a vegetable and constantly stayed plugged into the game, then you're rendition of reality would be forever be changed.

    I personally believe that the only way an artisits' conception can become realistic is when it becomes 3d, life-sized, solid, and has the ability to think artificially, screens are nowhere near realistic. If i went onto a planet to kill aliens, they arent projected onto glass in front of me. Again Star Trek is the best way to give an example. The holodeck is the ultimate gaming room!! <IMG SRC="smileys/cool.gif"> <br><br><i>This message was edited by LordMoses69 on 26 Apr 2001 03:48 PM</i>

    I think they are close now. How many of us have physically move our head to dodge a shot in a game. How about moving a foot when playing a car game. I've fidgeted my fingers while actually driving to shift gears as in gran tourismo 1 or 2. how much more will we get?

    I think we're well on our way to brewing up the most realistic games possible. It'll definitely take a while though for them to be totally "real life", but I think it will happen. <br>
    <br>
    Gotta agree with Hilbert on one part though.....how do we define realistic? We could be there by next year to some people, and never to others <IMG SRC="smileys/knock.gif"> <br>

    I reckon with the current process of speeding up processing power, the development taking place in graphics processors and sound. The big wait is for an afordable VR system. Once these things are combined you'll have a realistic as possible simulations etc etc.<br>
    <br>
    Think of the highend military flightsims, but then in the comfort of your home. I think it will come sooner than we think but no sooner as 2004.<br>
