Yeah there was some good titles for that interactive thing xD I think that's what it was called. The controller for the intellivision was big clunky
and had to many buttons.
I don't remember mine having missle command on it but then again it was a long time ago. And when i was playing with it Sega had already came out.
The system i was playing belonged to my uncle i think. Atari was just terrible lol i had pac-mac for it and the controller was kinda gimmicky. Pac man
never moved in the way i wanted him to. I remeber those kinds of joysticks only having like a Dpad like function so it made it difficult to run around
the screen. There was some other games too i can't remeber xD
But as for virtual reality games. That's one scene my parents missed for us and with good reason i think. There was lots of eye problems with the VR
headsets. People having headaches, They were big and clunky just like you mentioned and us being tiny kids. It would of defenantly been a strain on
our tiny heads the immense weight of one of those things. Even for me an young adult now it would still be really clunky lol.
But i can see VR getting to the point where you are saying. We have the oculus right now but it kinda has the same problems the previous generations
of vr had which was eye problems and the object just being to heavy on someones head. The VR of the future will be lightweight. Won't make someone
blind and will have a fully interactable scanner that scans your body well you move so you can move in the real world and the virtual world.
For me even at a super young age i envisioned the VR of the future.
It would have a tread-mill. And when you run, the thread mill would scan an would move along with your strides. The Headset tho would be wireless and
would mount to someones head almost like a hat sorta. I envisioned the future of first person shooters used by the military. I had so many dreams
about this. The military would use these type of treadmill VR devices to train their soldiers. And when the soldiers finally went into combats. They
didn't physically actually * Go * to combat rather. They would have a robot they controlled from these treadmill points. And wars were fought by *
gamers* if you want to call them that.
People could tumble and roll on these treadmill things and it would keep them in place seemlessly. So when in active combat, they could literally pull
off james bond moves and not fall off the threadmill * it was wide enough to allow a pretty good tumble but not like.. trying to jump super far in one
direction lol. And for some reason in my dreams they were all voice interactive. So people would have to physically tell the machine to disconnect
them so the roller treadmill below them would stop keeping them in the center of the device.
Of course these were just dreams i had when i was like 5 or 6. Bizzare i still remeber it. At the time i thought... what if i'm in a Matrix right
now? And im just some virtual reality chair simulating the Universe. This happened before the matrix movie even came out. But i think anyone who sees
a VR headset could jump to the same conclusions and i think the matrix movie was entirely based on the exact same ideas the creators of it got when
they saw a VR headset. Just a step beyond what the average norm were thinking. I don't think the Universe is just a game simulation lol but it
defenantly had me thinking. Then the matrix movie came out and i contemplated it even more hahahahha
But i think my dreams will come true, i might just see soldiers using remotely controlled robotic humanoid drones that will fight for them via Virtual
I watched a movie called Double Dragon and in it that's where i saw VR with that rollercoaster game lol. Man i havn't seen or heard of that move in
such a long time. Double dragon was also a dystopian future.
My parents programmed me to be a sci-fi prophetic tech junky O.O cuz all they would watch were movies that wernt appropriate for kids hahahahha. I
still watched my regular programming as well as kids movies but when it came to mommy and daddy movie time. I would see things like Pumpkin head and
pumpkinhead 2. Chucky IT and the likes. Chucky wasn't even scary. It was Pumpkinhead that was giving me nightmares. Hooolllyy that movie series was
terrorfying. Looking back at it now. it's still pretty terrorfying but also really cheasy compared to a lot of the newer movies... actually alot of
the newer horrormovies are nothing but Cheese. I take the cheese comment back for pumpkinhead now that i remeber. It was just a terrorfying movie
series and its still pretty disturbing even to this day.
Summoning a demon from hell that is more Ancient that all of mans knowledge, It will murder anyone the summoner dislikes at a whim and won't stopped
once the * Order* is given. And the only way to stop pumpkinhead. Is for the summoner to get killed. It was and still is, a very brutal horror movie
Sorry to talk about movies hahaha xD general chit chat.
But yeah VR of the future will be robotic drones fighting each other on the open battle feild.
