    Default The Future Of Gaming

    Out of curiosity, where do you think future games will take us? 10 years from now? 25... 50 years from now?

    Does our future lay in VR?

    Or....Is the future highly complex, huge, breathing, living MMO worlds? I'm curious in hearing what you guys think about this.

    We're definitely heading toward a higher population of indie games and VR tech.

    Sandbox MMOs seem to be trending at the moment, can't see that idea going away, once you've had a taste of sandbox everything else pales in comparison.

    I believe impressive, "living" sandbox worlds is where we'll be heading. Wurm Online is an awesome example of what direction I feel MMOs will start heading towards.

    As for the interface... I don't know. I feel that VR-tech will play a huge role, however, I do not think we'll end our use of keyboards and mice any time soon. Perhaps the look and design of them will change, but overall they'll still remain the keyboard and mice.

    Mobile + VR. Mix those mobile gaming apps where it uses GPS and real world data, with some VR stuff, and boom: we're now immersed in a fantasy world while we're in the real world.

    I do see Linux becoming more of a gaming platform as steam starts pushing their SteamOS more, and ReactOS' Community Edition becomes more real: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/r...y-edition#home

    Mono and Flash aren't viable though.
