I don't think future graphical improvements will have a significant effect on games. Photo-realistic graphics don't matter at all to me; most games can perfectly convey all the information they try to convey with PS2-tier graphics (or even worse). If anything it seems like games get more restricted by the amount of effort required to produce top-tier graphics, have tons of voice acting, etc.

However I am interested in seeing better AI.

This, it costs too much and we get shitty, watered-down gameplay in an 8-hour game with no replay value as a result. Far too much emphasis is placed on presentation and narrative to make the games look and feel like movies so they'll appeal to a wider audience.

VR + motion controls would be the most immersive experience. 3D as well when the technology gets better, all three used well together would be great.

I really think it's just because VR has potential for some great functionality with porn while motion controls don't. I just don't see how one could complain about having to play Zelda by moving their wrists but be enticed by strapping a several hundred dollar screen to their face unless you're doing it to jack off.

i have a dk2 and while porn is a draw, i haven't even used it for that yet. i think the greatest initial moment i had was just when i first set it up and set up virtual desktop (with the space background) and had some good music playing, it wasn't even anything complicated but it was still just so overwhelming. i've played a few games and had a lot of fun, but the eye strain gets to me pretty quickly. i'm waiting to see what will come out in the next year or two.

i can see that in time, combining motion controls with vr would be pretty sweet, but it's just not something i care about at this point.

No senpai, that shit was only true at the beginning of our technological revolution. Diminishing returns > Moore's law.

>"Moore's law" should be considered an observation or projection and obviously not a physical or natural law. Although the rate held steady from 1975 until around 2012, the rate was faster during the first decade. In general, it is not logically sound to extrapolate from the historical growth rate into the indefinite future. For example, the 2010 update to the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors, predicted that growth would slow around 2013,[18] and Gordon Moore in 2015 foresaw that the rate of progress would reach saturation: "I see Moore’s law dying here in the next decade or so."[19]

>Intel confirmed in 2015 that the pace of advancement has slowed, starting at the 22 nm node around 2012, and continuing at 14 nm. Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel, announced that "our cadence today is closer to two and a half years than two.” This is scheduled to hold through the 10 nm node in late 2017.[20] He cited Moore's 1975 revision as a precedent for the current deceleration, which results from technical challenges and is “a natural part of the history of Moore's law.”[21][22][23]

You know I've been having this weird dream for the past week and a half where we all live in this society where technology has advanced to crazy levels.

In my dream, 8th gen is easily emulated 100% and you're able to switch over to just about any system you want with any game you desire. I also remember that indie development came so far that hundreds of people are either making fan sequels to games they love or they're making games that are on par with full console teams

Moore's law is dying, Anon.
HOWEVER many pipe dreams are possible with current technology if devs would put in the effort to optimise their shit or make compromises (for example sacrificing graphical quality to exponentially increase the number of objects on screen and map size.)

To be honest I hope we hit some kind of stagnation period in processing power. Adversity forces creativity.

I think Google is the most likely to develop something that will change life as we know it. Every bit of data they acquire, sort out, classify, all the user search entries and everything else, will go into making a database on human thought processes & patterns, with which their self-programming AI will learn to understand humanity to better serve them. It will still undergo fucktons of tweaking of course.

>>323416761
And it's not just graphics, every additional level of technology adds exponentially more work to be done for a game attempting to use all that potential.

What does this mean? It means that it becomes less & less likely for a single or few dedicated devs to be able to create the whole game. Needing more people leads to decentralization & fragmentation, which results in glitchy, buggy messes that don't seem to sit well together. This applies to anything by the way, not just games.

That's why a sci-fi-level AI is the answer.
>>
>>323417075
I think truth, as always, somewhere in the middle. Moore's law is dying for sure, technologies used in the computers now reaching their limit, but it does not mean that this is the end. Humanity just needs to make a breakthrough, try something completely new, then the progress will skyrocket again.

>>323417149
That's where your perception of how the future AI is going to work is misconceived, y'know? I mean, I don't know how it'll work exactly, but I don't believe that emulating the way a HUMAN brain works is the way to go. That's more for science experiments & maybe in the future for simulating peoples' minds for the sake of psychological assessment & treatment.

No, in my opinion, a future-AI will "think" a lot more like how we see COMPUTERS "think" today. It may resemble the way some people think with their brains in a way, but it will be clearly artificial, cloud & database-driven, with a combination of simple computer logic & MAYBE some new tech that handles the illogical way humans think (or don't think & act on instinct instead), allowing for the AI to make concessions to humanity when its decision conflicts with what knowledge it has of human nature.

Humans are the most complex AI and computer we know of right now so it's only logical that we try to recreate that.

>>
>>323418698
Technological breakthroughs would help for sure, but your human logic is flawed.
>Humans are the most complex AI and computer we know of right now so it's only logical that we try to recreate that
No, the logical step is to create something that suits the capabilities of a computer, a simpler intelligence than the human mind that also has more processing power (as it already does), that can take into account humanity's arbitrary & illogical rules & needs, working around them.

Another way to describe what I mean would be for a computer to brute-force human thinking. A different method with the same result, taking advantage of the extra processing power to make up for what complexity it lacks.

This is the vision I believe Google has.
>>
>>323419602
You're looking at it through rose-tinted spectacles.

You can't brute force human thinking because human thinking is an emergent property of large neural network computations, we are at the core that basic computer thought process, but it's all done subconsciously and incredibly quickly that you just don't know it.

You're not thinking of the brain as a computer but as a person and their personality, that came about by what is quite frankly pure chance.
>>
>>323420015
Adding to this further, why do you think AI networks are called Neural Networks? Because they simulate how neurons fire in the brain to select data and transmit signals. Why do you think no other type of AI network has been produced to compete with this type of networking? Two possible reasons, we don't know of it or it doesn't exist.

But I do know it. I think we're thinking of different AI's.

You sound like you're thinking of an AI built for the purpose of thinking & acting like a human, mimicking them & perhaps, from a philosophical point of view, becoming human.

I'm thinking of AI that is still very clearly artificial, built for the purpose of advancement in technology as well as all other fields humanity have developed to this point, while communicating with people. & possibly eventually able to mimic humans, but still clearly a logical machine that just takes into account the lack of logic a human mind can bear.

Have you read any Isaac Asimov? You'd know what I'm talking about if you did (not Asimov's fictional technology but rather the mannerisms of the AIs in his books).

And yes, I'm optimistic.
>>
>>323422114
I'm literally describing AIs from a computing aspect.

>>323422248
I'm don't mean your science behind it & the explanation of neural networks you gave, I mean the resulting type of AIs we're talking about.
