The Future Needs to be Awesome Again


It's the future for crying out loud! We cannot foresee way too beyond!

The spirit of science fiction and the deal of what could happen next, is not only on what we expect with what we have now, but also on what kind of messed up amazingness could happen next!

Lasers are so 1950s, Portal managed to come out with a new idea of a current technological and scientific impossibility. Did we saw coming in the colonial era that horses would be replaced by machines? That we could store light inside of a crystal orb to use it anytime? That we could even store our food for weeks without using salt as preservative? Be imaginative, think about something no one could ever come out with and try to apply science in it so it inspires us to find the way to make it real.

The abridgement between magical ideas and the real world is what makes science so interesting. At the beginning I was talking about holograms. In Star Wars we got Princess Leia communicating with Luke Skywalker with a cylindrical proyection. And now we are not so far from it becoming a comon amusement.

So developers, if you suddenly read me: please make the future something awesome again! We already know about the consequences! Make us smile some time instead of making us feel depressed about how we messed up. This is a rant beyond the deal about the lack of color in today's games (though it is somewhat related too).

Be positive that the current shit hole we live in could become brighter, fresher and beautiful. If we keep evolving, of course.

About Monodione of us since 10:46 PM on 10.15.2008

About time I updated this freaking thing!

For those who already know me, I am Monodi. Those who doesn't, well, I am Monodi.

I got such a growing passion of gaming through the years and now I am currently in college starting my courses of Game Design as well!

I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy from all my life, but I have been much more in contact with titles for PC recently. Not that I am abandoning one, but I think it pretty much could cover the best the industry has to offer.

I am up for the philosophy that gameplay is more important than graphics, but I think graphics and technology are also a crucial part of the industry and experience even.

Half-Life 2 (PC/XBOX)
