I want to start a topic about full dive virtual reality…
For those of you who don’t know, Full Dive Virtual Reality is a type of virtual reality in which the person is completely immersed in a video game. The human brain would have no idea that what the person is experiencing was not real at all. All your senses, smell, taste, touch, hearing, and sight would be transferred into a video game character, much like the anime Sword Art Online (please don’t make this a discussion about the anime) Now, this would be the FINAL version of a full dive experience, things like smelling isn’t necessary but obviously would increase immersion.
Currently, many people are discussing how to go about make the *simplest * version of a full dive, movement only.
After that is accomplished, I predict the game industry would be at a halt or standstill. I say this because I believe the main goal of almost every video game is to achieve total immersion. By the time the simple version is accomplished (I think 2020-2022), the graphics of a video game would *almost *replicate reality.
The question is what then? The game industry achieved total immersion, the next step I guess would be to make an even bigger game, different story, different mechanics, more optimal for low-end computers etc.
Many people want to see it happen but there are ***so ******many ***issues to be discussed, what do you guys think?
