|Random thoughts. What's the future of video games? What TV spinoffs can we expect?|
-Tetris is so unrealistic- ever had the feeling you're in a computer game? ever thought that your life is controlled from above somehow? ever wondered why there are so many falling colorful cubes? Yeah, me neither. But seriously, aren't the computer games getting more and more realistic? It's only a matter of time before we can't tell apart reality from virtual reality. And that will be the day when reality will be virtually indistinguishible from virtual reality, which in turn will be virtually similar to reality. It will be the day when you will have to sneak around as a Delta Force soldier, which may generate a cultural clash with the local police force. Or you may get an urge to do a loop around the golden gate bridge, under-over-under... oh come on, I know you've tried that in your flight simulator! And then when you're tired of doing these things, you might just run off to a huge green field to build a city from scratch, or perhaps you decide to declare war against the romans, only because you screwed up and they built the great library first. But think about this: what will you do... ...when the first colored cubes start falling down? Now, how will you handle that? -------------------------------------------------- -Enhanced Basketball- Yes, this is a proposition for a new sport. It will revolutionize sport as we know it. Consider basketball. It's an ok sport, but you know... eeh... Now consider basketball on a court perhaps three times as large and the baskets a few feet higher up. And then you're asking, 'hey, a game for giants?' and i would go 'no, Bosco, you got it all wrong'. Since this game is not invented yet, it will have to be played in the future. So i leave it up to the future scientists to come up with materials that makes it possible to make basket shoes which makes you jump several feet higher with ease. Or we can play this in a huge hall on the moon. Either way it's in the future. You can see it now, can't you? The players running and jumping higher than before. What speed, what high jumps! Weee! But it doesn't end there. Imagine now that we remove most of the rules in this game. Anything goes, the players can do anything. In fact, combine this game with some martial arts or something. You can just see the high kicks, the cool roundkicks and the midair mayhem, can't you! Now that's a sport. Click here to read the rest of this story (104 more lines)
