I am 33 years old, my first video game system was an atari. From bouncing around a square to hit another bunch of squares (supposedly a tank) to online call of duty and battlefield 3' 3d nintendo ds plus kinect and joining thousands of other people in real time on world of warcraft. Well, I am very impressed! Hell, I was impressed when I first managed to get a copy of Leisure Suit Larry and King's Quest for my first IBM pc! Super Mario 1 was simply incredible and when first got to Bowser, I was 7, I swear my heart stopped for a second; such was the sheer amazement. So yeah, we've come along way in an extremely short amount of time, all IMO of course.
Like the first Star Wars movie from 1977,when R2D2 projects the holographic distress message,the moving image of Princess Leia Organa,into the middle of the room,on top of a table i think.That virtual holographic message had movement and sound and was the first time i realized that anything like that was even possible...

Me too! That's exactly what virtual reality would/will be for sure. I'm amazed that it has not happened yet, as we are definitely technologically advanced enough to create it imo. It could cause problems though, like no one ever leaving their home lol
people bribe cops,beat up hoes and steal cars all the time...Hmmmm?...Those aliens really like their game characters to endure every kind of gauntlet they can imagine...they must of had a helluva fun time playing their WW-1 and WW-2 games resulting in 75,000,000 of their virtual characters killed....Are our "alien gamers" evil?...Probably...

I actually like this theory... it's a very interesting one...
too bad though it's not like GTA and you can bribe cops after beating up hoes, stealing a car and running over people while shooting out the window...
I guess this isn't a video game after all... DANG!

There are many that would argue against us humans actually being truly self aware.
