    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...
