I don't think your idea of virtual reality is far fetched at all. It's not if", but "when". I am willing to bet that 10 years from now there is a virtual reality system where you can go anywhere on the field, into tunnels at the stadium, back into the training room, into the huddle, etc. Once first person gameplay is perfected, you will see virtual reality come along.

I hate to play Devils Advocate here, but I think everyone's getting a little too excited about possible gaming advancements in the next 10 years because of this one fact:

Aside from graphics, the 2004 sports gaming crop still plays better than our current generation of games.

Think about it- MVP 05, Madden 05, NFL 2K5, NBA Live 05, High Heat Baseaball...etc.

That was 5 years ago, and other than the NHL and the NBA 2K series (which hasn't changed much from the gameplay standpoint), gamers are still yearning for the games they were playing back then.

Based on that tidbit, do you honestly think 10 years down the road sports gaming will be that different? At the current pace, we may just be hitting the point where games can have great graphics and play solid- maybe they won't even have to be patched 3 times to become functional by 2019.

I know, I know, but someone had to be cynical!

My guess is that computer programming will become more and more streamlined. Right now the DEV cycle is way to short for creating new versions of games. So I think we will get less buggy versions of games we c now.


I don't think graphics can go as far as people think. - Your still limited by human artwork and direction.

The improvements will come in the form of physics, weight, speed, force, wind, lighting.

Big improvements will have to come in AI in order to make these games as real as people expect...I'm just not sure that'll all happen fast in 10 years.

I do agree that the physics/tackling/animation all that will be the next area. We see that keep improving, and as there's more computing power you get the ability to add more and more engines of greater complexity to do this stuff.

In ten years...

You'll be wearing a full body suit that mimics your actions in a virtual reality gaming setting.

All is golden... untill in Fight Night Round 12 for the Xbox X, a glitch develops and you keep getting mexican kidney punched by Larry Holmes, over and over. The paramedics have to cut you out of the suit using the "Scissors of life" and you use the bathroom into a bag until they clone you a new set of intestines.
