Thread: Play the game til your hearts content.

    Play the game til your hearts content.

    Think of a complex role playing game. Not the game play itself, but the

    actual CD it came on. All the possibilities are pre-programmed onto the

    disc. Time, money, love, fear, fame, war, sadness, anger, family, friends,

    animals, pollution, ect. As is every scenario you can possibly encounter.

    Yet what's the point of the game if there is no one there to play it. So the

    cd is popped in without the character knowing it and we begin to play.



    As your character starts out, he/she has very little, just the basics really.

    As you progress, you can pick up all sorts of stuff. Your character has the

    ability to learn and gather key items along the way. You can make major

    or minor mistakes that can set you back. You can even win

    the game if you play it long and hard enough, or appear to anyway.

    Literally you can have anything in the game, anything at all. You might be

    strolling along and BAM a key to the puzzle fits in, a new surprise

    for you, a new discovery unfolds before your eyes. Something that you

    never knew existed before, maybe even something that you needed in

    order to proceed further. Life sure is good when we find those pieces! Yea,

    sometimes your leg gets bitten off by the dragon that guards the forest

    near the edge of town. "Damn, this peg leg sure is gonna slow me

    down." we think. Some people even opt to start over when the character is

    too damaged to proceed with much success.




    But hold up, has anyone ever seen a character in the game stop and ask..

    "Wait a minute, I'm in a freakin game?" The truth is we'll all recognize that

    it's a game eventually, it's already programmed that way, you can't fail!

    So play the game until your hearts content, there's a lot of wonders to see

    in it. But when the time comes, don't fear the unknown. See the game for

    what it is, step off the cd rom, laugh, and find a new game to play.

    A small note from an ex-professional video game programmer (not current, don't ask for any cheat codes). Some games are open ended and the experience changes depending on what you do. More accurately, the limit of what can happen depends on the machine on which it runs.

    Even so, the perception of what actually happened is largely due to the perceiver. Much of video games in the old days depended on knowing how human perception works. Before powerful machines, optical and auditory illusions were the rule. It much like reading a book, much of it is your imagination.

    I agree mostly with the first post within the scope of 1. However, what is the nature of the person with the controller in their hands? Presumably that is a game too. So what is it that makes games possible in the first place.

    Until then, have fun....

    Sure. I'd like to opt out of the game I'm playing and find a more comfortable one. Who is it I need to talk to?

    To clarify, I want all record of my existence erased from this round, every preceding round, and all future rounds. As long as there is someone who can say "there was this character in the game, but he opted out" that isn't good enough. I want to be completely removed throughout all time and every version and every copy of the game.

    So who do I take it up with? And the game is more of a virus than something which was created intentionally.

    Tom who? But seriously, do you really think that because it's not comfortable it's a mistake? I mean- we think that because it's not purposeful, and logical, it's not supposed to be? Just 'cause we don't like it now?

    Comfortable would seem to be the province of the dead. Life is about learning & striving. I'm not a Christian partly because I can't imagine anything more boring than sitting around on gutters of gold (uncomfortable too) admiring the glow of God's backside. (the only part even Moses was able to view safely)

    Whether it was a game or an accident doesn't actually matter. I got to the point where I hated the ups and downs and never knowing when the next crash would be. The worst part was that even knowing I am bringing it all on myself doesn't keep me from doing it still.

    I think you just made my point. Some don't like the way it is, others do, is it a mistake? Is the word even applicable to the game, especially when we know it's just that, a game?
