When will the day come when one player who does X thing in a game will permanently change the way everyone else plays the same game? When will the day come when players actions will truly matter? When will we see players to truly feel the risk and thrill of their own choices that will permanently define them for who they are? When will we see a game that feels as much as important as real life?
A great game means a more peaceful and safer world. It also means a less polluted world. It also means a great way for individuals to meet someone that truly enjoy spending their time with. It also means less spending $ on other, far more costly hobbies for entertainment. It can also be an educational game, things people can actually learn that would benefit from in real life.
The problem we are facing today is the fact that building games costs $ and they solely depend on the private sector willingness to invest in them. What happens though when the private sector doesn't have the funds to invest, interest or ability to deliver this game? This happens. The state of gaming today as it is.
I see billions upon billions of government funds thrown in things that humanity as a whole does not benefit, from many space to military programs. Only when this game becomes reality the world will see the imminent impact on evolution as a whole for mankind.
I've consistently played games for decades which allowed me to think and solve problems. They helped me from the very first thing which was to understand and write the English language...Today, thx to meeting and interacting with thousands of players over the last 14 years I also know things I would never knew before. Most importantly gaming has helped me to have great social skills.
So, when are games going to become more than just "games"? When will the world become more involved in building, investing in them? What will it take from each individual gamer to push toward this goal? Well, I can think of few things, but anyways...I said enough for now.
