I may go a little crazy into the wild here. But stay with me.
Imagine for a second how far gaming has come in the last 30 years. from crude, simple lines on a screen that bounced a “ball” (Not even a ball, as it wasn’t possible to render anything more than a square.) back and forth until someone missed. resulting in an ear deafening tone to signify that you scored a point. A machine that stood 7 feet tall and weighed 800 pounds and was only capable of displaying black and white.
Now boot up your PS3 or Xbox360, or even a computer game. A system that can be carried with one hand with relative ease. What do you see? Graphics that almost rival real life in terms of lighting, wrinkles in the skin. blades of grass that sway and move independently from the blade next to it as the wind blows. Sound that has the ability to play sounds from 8 speakers. To manifest footsteps and the subtlety of fabric moving against fabric as you’re being approached and then breathing so life like that you physically turn around to see if it’s really your speakers or if someone slipped into the room while you where playing.
Now, imagine what games will be like in 30 years
