Here are a couple of thoughts on the announcement of Destiny, Bungie's brand new first person shooter.
700 years into the future huh? It always gives me a chuckle when I read stuff like that. Consider what life on this planet was like in 1913, a mere 100 years ago. Life on this planet 700 years from now (barring mankind destroying life as we know it, or the cosmos or a virus doing it for us)will be unimaginable due to the constant progression of technological advancement. Maybe we wouldn't even recognize the human race if we could see a day in the life 2713. We may be more machine than human tissue by then. Maybe we will be mere intelligence, with humanity getting rid of our weak, susceptible bodies and replacing them with stronger, more suitable structures that allows our brains to exist far longer, maybe indefinitely. But when I play games set in the future, including one of my favorites Mass Effect, it all pretty much looks like life in the present. For example, according to Mass Effect, 200 years from now folks on spacecraft capable of interstellar travel will still have use for tablets and computers that have a keyboard for input. Really? I would love to see more creativity from developers. It may be impossible to imagine what daily life will be like 100 years from now much less 700 years, but I'd sure like to see some folks give it a shot.
fool...your making this drama?!? ....."grab a controller and enjoy the game" (when release)
In 700 years human beings will be partially/mainly robotic.
Agreed. Like your thinking medman.
Damn I can't get hyped for this game. I know it will most likely be awesome, but for some reason I haven't seen anything yet that pulls me in. I'm sure others feel the same. I still have no clue what the game really is. Is it an MMO? Is it sort of MMO? Seriously, they need to clear all this crap up at E3 or whenever. (I haven't even pre-ordered it :( )
