The Future of Video Games

Discuss what gaming might look like ten years down the line, based on how gaming has changed in the last ten years (ie. consoles, genres, pc, gameplay, etc.).

  • Ten years is... uhh, wow. That's a lengthy period of time. It's easy to overlook the Wii's contribution to games due to hindsight, but if you remember, motion controls were huge and innovative. Even before that, even if we laugh at it now, the switch to polygon-based graphics was deemed "artistic" and "high-quality". Word to the wise: games can remain pretty stagnant (2009-2014) and then have a huge burst of change (motion controls, media integration). An article that gives me a slow and steady timeline, I will personally have deleted. Okay, not really, but you get the point. It wouldn't be realistic to think of changes that way. – Austin 2 years ago

  • Austin, you are a very intense person! I agree with you, whoever writes this would do well to stay away from a timeline, as it is very difficult to predict exactly how things will pan out. Instead of trying to make a fixed timeline, it might be nice to paint a theoretical picture of how we might refine some of the already existing prototypes. I'm thinking of things like the oculus rift. It is important to consider how many technologies converge to make new products. – dannyjs 2 years ago

  • Looking at the future of virtual reality seems like the most obvious direction. Look at the possible ramifications of this. – Joseph Manduke IV 2 years ago

  • I honestly don't see this as a viable topic. "Video Games" in general is a huge arc, with numerous updates and changes pending and, as Austin already stated, moving in bursts more than steady changes. Perhaps this would be more manageable if broken down to, say, a specific genre, or a look at Nintendo's new system, or something of that sort. This is just a little broad to really be helpful as-is, though. – Christopher Vance 2 years ago

Thanks for the feedback! I can relate. The first time I watched Heroes, I didn’t fully understand the greatness of the first season. It was only after I watched it back with a friend a second time that I started to realize how special it was. It’s worth watching again!

Always happy to see some pro-prequel discussion. Contrary to popular belief, and by popular belief I mean middle-aged men on the internet, the people who didn’t like episodes I-III are actually in the minority of movie-goers. Great article! Looking forward to reading more from you.

If you have Netflix, the original four seasons are available for streaming. I’d really recommend checking them out, especially being a sci-if fan!

Yeah I hope so too. I could see something like that happening somewhere down the road.
