The future of rpg (and humans civilization in while), is connected with space / with galaxy.. :)

Well, devs, nowdays, can to give to us any view of space and stars, which before some of us (whos from 90s) saw (Had the opportunity to see) only in star wars films :))

But, they cant to send us to trip around planet (in real life), yet.. All what they can to do its keep to make space of virtual world to be more more huge... But, real life still to be more (sometimes in real life you search and find really unique things, sometimes thanks wiki, in real life things is not repeating as in game worlds... Each day is unique. ).

If you read the interview, Feargus Urquhart stated that what really matters in rpgs was giving players choices and the feeling of a living and moving / evolving world more than a big or huge world among other things.

You guys should really read it and comment about it to share our points of view

Hello! You are right, need at first read interview or article and then write opinion to it.. But, sometimes me enough to just look on picture and read title over it.. to make my mind formulate words and interesting thoughts (well on my opinion). It is right to read others opinions to correct your own.. But, i try to make my own opinion, i dont know it will be interesting (and need) other or not.. But, i like drawing and such pictures do inspiring me.. But, if back to what i wrote at top.. 

Civilization and future... Games changing each other.. New worlds, new ideas put in games.. Already hardly to make same fascinating and unexpected the plot as in star wars (about Anakin and Luke). Great world and new features its very good, but (really thoughtful) the plot will keep player with game longer than week, weeks (maybe and months).. 

In Real life we have thousands days (but, our mind cant get tired from this biggest game.. With  virtual games another situation... We do feel that its not real.. Just result of someones imagination.. 

But, in same time real life of each of us is unique, the brain even for thousands of days can not get used to life .. I mean that life does not bore our mind as one and the same game.. No matter how amazing it is realized.. It will still get bored after a while... 

Thousands of days..., but less of us used them really good and right.. If games could to teach us what is really important in real life, that need to care about it and be nice with other.. Cause everything what we do see in virtual games appearing there from changes in RL (ideas, imagination, time, often night time too, spent for make games to be perfect and without bugs/lags... Also when collecting very good and friendly team of devs.. I mean changes for better side in virtual games still to be depend fron all changes which going in real life.. 

Actions made in real life such as first love or friendship standing in memory much longer than great moments from virtual games.. This is the answer that, yes, they, devs can try to create world in which all gamers will find that what they not yet find/met in real life.. But, real feelings hardly to replace by virtual feelings..

Also, i want to say that while part of us want to see and play in much more realistic games with new feelings from visiting space, planets and stars.. I would like to see also new stage in access of  the civilization to real time streaming/showing how space shuttles and  missiles coming to space.. On my opinion, We could to install video cameras on all those thousands of small ilon masks satellites and get possibility  to watch streams of starts of all the rockets/shuttles (to see it and with high resolution to forget for forever about 144p).

Sorry for very long text. I will also try to find free time to read / listen interview. I typed this message from smartphone (again suddently clicked in wrong place and lost typed text.. so, this second version has become longer than first..) Well, Have a good day!
