The Future of Video Games

    I’ve recently been thinking about where video games could be going in the future. I’m hoping to work in the game industry one day after I’ve finished university study and I’ve been wondering about it a lot. What do I want to see happen in the future? Well I may not have too many answers right now, but I have come up with a few ideas that I think may come into ‘play’ in the not too distant future.

    Firstly forget Virtual Reality, as we know it. They’ve tried VR goggles and they made a lot of people sick in doing so. It’s probably never going to work very well in its current form. They’re still around and you can still buy them but they really don’t seem to be taking off. It will probably take a lot to get people totally immersed and involved in a new form of game play. It’s threatening to lose touch with the outside world and the people around you aren’t going to appreciate it much either. The Sci-fi neural implants are also both a long way off and not likely to be accepted by a majority of the general populace without some severe marketing and luck. I for one am not planning on going through brain surgery just to have a computer attached to my head. In fact I never want anyone to able to plug into my brain.

      well i think online gaming is going to become a lot more prominent, as the internet continues to become more and more part of our daily lives. in fact, i wouldn't be the least bit surprised if developers eventually phase out Disc format completely in favor of players just being able to download their favorite games online to their home console.  plus, this would allow for developers to include packages where it would allow users to download new weapons and levels for their downloaded games later on.

      Not to mention, I know it would save game companies a lot of money to cut out the middle man if they can earn revenue directly from the users paying to download their favorite games online.
