Video Game Graphics: My Quick Take on GDC 2015, Unity 5 and Unreal Engine 4
We really are on the cusp of videogame graphics and lighting matching real life. I've been playing games since 1985 and this dream of us gamers and game devs is not too far from being accomplished..and I couldn't be more excited; especially now that these tools are available to any dev, AAA or not. Using the physics & lighting that govern our universe is in the calculations seen in the latest 3D engines... we are becoming masters of light and information.
Next milestone would be to create something in tune to what is in the SAO anime, where this data is streamed to your mind and you live the game or simulation like a dream. For that, we need to be masters of a computer that's had billions of years to evolve...our brains.
