I'm going to invent a server that will unify all the gadgets by streaming virtual versions of them.

That'll be dependent on your connection to the server. Playstation Now and Nvidia's system hasn't exactly been a roaring success, though we can see how Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud turn out.

OK, now that screens have surpassed the human eyes ability to resolve detail, what is the next thing to compete over?

object detection, or whatever it's called

even in newer games you still see objects and/or characters clipping through walls or things

I'm glad I found this gruesome example

It's unacceptable that still happens in video games.

Programming is complicated, yo.

Computers do literally everything they're told to do, and sometimes that includes something no one would have guessed.

Oh for sure it will be 5G dependent. But that will make all device-based systems irrelevant, other than any receiver you have.

more practical and affordable vr for consoles, i guess ... but methinks gaming is going to be almost all mobile before too long

I'm surprised they still want to use optical disc media.

An optical drive, how quaint.

That example would be more of a collision detection thing; which is actually very CPU intensive to calculate accurately. You are talking a mixture of soft and hard body dynamics, along with deformation of the mesh; and rag doll physics.

In my opinion one of the best games that actually utilized collision detected in a good way was Deus Ex, as you receive damage on a per limb/body manner and if limbs were injured, it made certain things a lot harder to do.

You'd think a sports game would be the one place they'd really want to show off the physics engine.

Well sure, but they really worked that gravitational parabolic curve.
