How much of this came true?

Multiplayer stuff came about during the /vr/ era, but the rest is fairly recent evolution.

Looks to be about 40 years old, based on the drawing style.

PC Gaming Master Race is almost there with creating "The Ultimate Game", what with expensive components, 4K resolution, and multi monitor setups.

As for handhelds with realistic graphics, don't count on Nintendo doing that any time soon, the 3DS' successor will be lucky to be just as powerful as the PSP was. The Vita can do that just fine though, despite having such a poor library.

>> No.1780214

EAX and A3D were originally for quadraphonic setups.

>the ultimate game will be a super-realistic simulation
God realismfags are such cancer.

>> No.1780297

Seems to me pretty much everything in that page not only became true, thing went a lot further since then. Most games today combine all of these advancements. When seeing this retarded-looking arcade multiplayer game I remembered the racing arcade games from the 90s with multiple linked machines such as Daytona USA. Or the Capcom and Konami beat'em ups that allowed up to 4 simultaneous players - was ever there an arcade beat'em up that allowed more than 4 players?

While "The Ultimate Game" doesn't exist in the exact form they describe yet, the technology is already here cheap and accessible. Seems to me it would basically be an MMO similar to Elite 2: Frontier with contemporary graphics. Something like Oculus Rift could take the role of the "special games cubicle". The main problem would be development costs for something so massive.

>> No.1780319

>sports game
>control each team member individually

I guess they meant it in the way we have it today, with AI taking over every player you aren't focused on, but I can only imagine a soccer game where you're trying to control eleven players at the same time, each with their own controls, and it's just blowing my mind right now.

>> No.1780336

In NBA Live '95 for SNES, with the multitap, each player could be one of the players on the court, provided it was 5vComp. I played that mode ONCE, and it was fun times for all.

The ultimate game is the "happening" process with flight simulators.

Pretty much all of that shit has happened. Not necessarily simultaneously, i.e. some of it we're far beyond and some is a bit more contemporary. Their "ultimate game" concept has been realized many times but immersion isn't as popular as people thought it would be.

Haha, oh god, I want to see this abomination of gaming in action. Was it really so hard to imagine that media technology would simply improve to the point where you wouldn't need all those drives and disks? Or that displays would become higher resolution? Or that voice commands would be shit?

Not impossible to reproduce. Hard part now, is finding four other people willing to play a 20 year old basketball game.
