How long before PC gaming graphics will look better than real life?

When gaming will be at its worst, we'll be able to have games that look so good they look like real life, but the production value of a single room will be a few million dollars.

But hey, it'll all be fine and games will still be good. Because thats totally logical.

Still shots look pretty darn close in some games. The problem is when it's in motion, especially seeing characters. Their facial expressions are WAAAAAYYYY off, and even body motions can be jerky at times.

I'd say, for a game in play to look like real life (not possible to look better), it will be probably another 50 years. It's just advancing at a crawl right now.

How can it look better than rl? That makes no sense.

we'll be able to live in a virtual reality world that's better than real life where we can do whatever we want, with no consequences and without having to leave our bedrooms ever again. I'll be able to create the ultimate gf in a video game and marry her in game, have a family, etc... How brilliant does that sound?!


This makes me really sad.

That sounds like half a dozen movies i've seen. And it makes me sad too knowing that people would rather live a virtual life with no real consequences than face reality
