Thanks for the reply. As for taking a pass on this level of realism, you'll soon be eating those words. ;] Eventually it'll integrate into our
everyday lives & we'll again become used to it, although there may be a differing factor this time around; because of the close resemblance.
So people may form bonds with characters very easily, not be so quick to enact violence, etc. Naturally this will raise some questions regarding
morality, desensitization, and eventually when the AI becomes conscious that will really cross over into a new boundary. There will probably be limits
in place not allowing players to torture or murder conscious NPCs. Which I agree, it shouldn't be a free for all.
This combined with virtual reality will allow anybody to enter different realms, socialize across the world & across digital universes; of course sex
will make it's way in. In essence, we're on the brink of a computing technology transition that will change the way humanity lives, communicates;
and will alter human sentience/perception of reality. This is of course, if we can get past the wars. It appears like our governments are dying to get
WW3 rolling, possibly a nuclear holocaust which will stifle and ruin everything we've worked for.
