Should Computers Design Computer Games?

Gavin Mannion: ''There is a very interesting piece on Eurogamer at the moment about one man’s quest to build an AI system that can create video games. It’s really lengthy but for people who are interested in the idea I do recommend giving it a read.

However the idea of computers making games themselves got me to thinking; would this be a good thing for the industry or simply the beginning of the end for any creative juices that still remain?''

In terms of that topic it makes you wonder how lazy people are getting to have their tech do the work for them?

It would be bland and unimaginative so to speak. I just believe that everything should not be handled by computers.

They could, but they would just keep coming up with games where technology destroys humankind.

I'd talk with the Pandora folks and adapt an algorhythm that tracks as many facets of a game as possible and aggregates enough people to determine what facets of a game make it enjoyable, profitable, add replayability, and generate overall positive feedback.

The issue might be with innovation and fresh ideas, unless a mutation component is added allowing the program to try out small things which have not been correlated to positive aspects of a game yet.
