    Default The Future Of Mmorpgs - Virtual reality?

    Came across something interesting this guy on a forum said. He talks about the pros and cons of a Virtual Reality MMORPG. I personally think that this approach towards making MMORPGS will trigger a revolution in how games are made in the far or possible-near future.

    When you play your favorite MMORPG, do you look and wish you it could ever be real? Wouldn't it be wonderful to live 2 different lives? There will be so much possibilities that you can think of. The idea of Virtual Reality now comes to hand with many scientists.

    The mind is a wonderous thing. It enables you to "feel" everything around you. It allows freedom of your body to learn. If you touch fire, it burns, it hurts, your mind tells you to pull away. Let's think about it differently - You touch fire, it burns, it's SUPPOSED to hurt, your mind tells you it doesn't hurt so you don't feel anything. The ability to alter our mind's thoughts are what scientists are working on now. To be able to make your mind BELIEVE it is in a different situation than it is right now is what makes the word Virtual Reality so special.

    So you're thinking: What has all this got to do with MMORPGs? Well for one thing, in Virtual Reality, it is as what it says - based on reality in a different form or universe. What is reality? Reality is you, the world, and other "you's"(people and animals). Thus we can say that in Virtual Reality, you would be viewing a different world in a first-person-view. MMORPGs are based on a one-person-view, thus it is Virtual Reality in itself.

    But when we think of the many wondrous possibilities of Virtual Reality, we think abouts its cons too. When you get hit or stabbed in Virtual Reality, your mind tells you that this hurts, and you feel pain. When you are stabbed to DEATH in Virtual Reality, your mind tells you that you are supposed to be dead. But you're not. What happens? In theory, you would be brain-dead. Your mind just stops working because it thinks it is dead, it thinks YOU are dead.

    When we look at the future of MMORPGs, we think Virtual Reality. We dream about being able to lead another life where you are the boss and control everything. In real life, you are influenced by everyone else. In Virtual Reality, you get to choose your paths and if you think something is wrong, you change it. So is this considered Virtual Reality if you can change your life?

    The questions are endless, but I'll stop at this point and leave most of you thinking about what the world can bring us - both good and bad.

    I'd get down and jiggy with it, but I'd imagine 90% of the server would be groping themselves, and if the genders were locked, well I feel sorry for any girl that wants to play.

    So many things that would come unwanted with the VR mmorpgs. Imagine all of the perverted guys and the female characters -.- Yea.......I think I'm gonna stick with keyboard and mouse.

    Pedo's O.o omfg all of the lolita crap that would go on........ man VR is gonna suck, or cause life long physical and mental scars.

    Also imagine all the guys who play as girls. Yea.....awkward................

    A world of sin and shadows....delightful.

    VR wouldn't have been so bad even 10 years ago....though technology would not have allowed it then. With the rise in Internet evolution and "expansions" of pornography to include taboo categories....it would be so.

    This just clearly shows where the world is going these days...adults tempted into forbidden sexual desires for whatever reason, internet sites encouraging these people by providing sites....man...if only the secular minds of people would clear up...

    Hmmm,


    VR is quite possible. In fact, our science today has probably exceeded such technology WAY long ago. Think about it. People talked about VR in the 80's. In the 80's, computers were as big as a kitchen. 10 years later and guess what...Their now available on your phone. The first VR games creatted were 2 bit games in which you had very minimal control. It's been more than 10 years since then people. Think about it.....

    If such a game had STRICT real life guidelines in which its MORE than an MMORPG, such things would basically be like a vacation into your fantasy life which would most likely cost more than a game system now. Probably around 15,000$ more. If we had VR like .hack and the world had a form of political guidelines....or laws, then such a world could be created....Such a world...probably is already created.

    Trayday, in all honesty, even the most minor fall back of such a creation would cause tremendous damage. We, everybody, are the beginning of a new age. An age where science and politics rule this world. History is doomed to repeat itself on account of our advancing. The life we lived before this one was WAY more advanced then our lives now...than they became extinct...we evolved....Here we are today a primitive species. In 50 years EVERYTHING we have today will be considered PRIMITIVE! In 200 years we will be a new age...In 300 years....We will all be dead...

    Heh I wonder how dying in a game feels like. Hopefully it would be something as fun like a complete 5 minute blackout xD

    Imagine you being a warrior fighting against a friend. If VR takes over control of your reality....Imagine a giant axe...sharper than adament teeth....ripping through your flesh ....severing your bones...you lie there breathing ...faint breaths just gasping for air.....and you die in horrible pain....thats what it would be like. Then your a vegetable for the rest of your life IN RL!! A ****IN VEGGY DUDE....YOUR A ****IN VEGGY

    It's quite ironic, That A friend and I was discussing this matter. Yes, Technology is advancing but things were pretty good as they was. Before we had thinkers and more thinkers. Not saying it's a bad thing, Just that it really did ruin the way MAN was classified. Anyways, This is mainly an Virtual reality thread of MMORPG we should end our discussion or talk about this in PM.

    I laugh at the fact of their honestly being a god. I believe in such a being but only one can classify god as "all powerful". Look around you, what is the ONLY thing that is all powerful without ANY restrictions in this world. It corrupts our minds to believe we are indeed living these fantasy lives. We spend BILLIONS of dollars to waste MORE time on something that will not move you anywhere in life Trayday. We are the end. Why not end it in VR, because we already lost it in RL.....If I invested 70% of my life into a video game, I dont know about you, but I would want to die doing what I wasted my life on. In this case being a level 60 warrior....If VR can grant me that, than please, tell me what "god" is...

    HAHAHA I like that, I hear what you are saying, But you still have plenty of time to live and that extra 30% can be rather enjoyable. But I do see what your saying. great point.

    You couldn't tell your parents: "Mom, I died because of you". Because you would actually be dead.

    Awesome, I can't wait.

    I dont think games will go as far as manipulating brain system to feel "fake" pain or something. It would be cool though.

    No chance. Maybe when most mindsets change, which does not seem possible in the near future.
    It would be morally wrong in today's societal concept, the allowing of minors (if the game goes public) to experience violence on a scale horribly close to actual everyday life. To both experience pain, and dish out pain on other players would be too much.
    Human Rights groups, parents, media societal experts, etc. would protest so much their spittle would flood New York City.

    It would be considered barbaric and uncivilized, as someone with 'skill' would be able to inflict pain on others. (There is a reason why ancient sports involving bloody Ancient Rome Gladiators have evolved into modern gladiators like Zidane;Football.) Imagine a 8 yr old gaming pro bashing up a 32 yr old dude in real life. No way. And again, visualize bullies, or worse, terrorists, using the game to terrorize players by ganking and injuring/killing them. It would be fine if it was just a game, detached and unreal. But experiencing true torture?

    Woo sex games...

    Anyway, it'd be pretty cool, probably happen some time, if we don't destroy out selves, but, yeah, It would be quite the progression.

    And a thought about this whole pain thing.

    If you've ever played a game with friends where an electrical shock is sent to a player at the will of another player's actions, I doubt this VR would be much different, however, of course, because it's a video game, it will be shunned any anything like this would be completely out of order to make in a game.
