I read a big article on games affecting your health, and it said that games such as Everquest do actually give off seemingly big effects, especially to people who play them all the time. Playing FPS games and games such as Commandos it is also proved, will make you look behind you more etc.

It was a very interesting article, however it was a few months ago I read it so I will try and dig up the link for you guys.

in the future, games will probaly be of the same quality (maybe a little beter graphics and smoother) but on smaller console, much like gameboys, so that one didn't have to be home all day playing. one could be anywhere playing, and everything would be wireless, so you could play against someone in china from maine without any wires, or outside devices, though that might be quite a few years in the making.

Imagine playing a future war shooter similar to, say, Call of Duty in VR with the potential level of immersion it could offer. It would be close to being on an actual battlefield. It takes training to remain cool in that enviroment, especially when you see your buddies blown to pieces around you.

Now, imagine Doom 12 in VR enviroment.

I've actually thought about this alot and I've come to a conclusion. One day the Human race will be nothing more than puddles of ooze in machines that do all the work for them...

Wow this is all so very interesting...I've never thought too much about this topic before, at least not too much, really boggles the brain...

All that virtual reality talk reminds me of the "Tom Clancy's Net Force" books I used to read. And those took place in 2010...(the future is near)

yeah but all those games dont have to be all blowing up (although it may be fun) it could be golf or that play station game where you hit things in the screen. you can also play as that yugio guy versing all those geeky ppl like pegasus.
