Whatever Happened to Video Game AI?

"Gather round fellow gamers, young and old, and I'll tell you a tale of a golden age long past, when the creatures that roam our virtual landscapes stepped blinking into the sunlight for the first time, picked up a thigh bone and smashed stuff with it. 1998 was the year, and Half-Life the game. It brought us Marines who were seemingly capable of outflanking the player, and flushing them out with smartly thrown grenades. Even its roaches responded to light, movement and smell."

Casual audience. Games aren't played on arcade machines anymore, where the AI wrecked you so you needed to insert another coin

The better question is. What happened to bots?

I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

No it isn't. She doesn't even do anything that would consider her programming to be "smart". She does hit others and aren't targeted by enemies either. The item throwing doesn't count since those are based on a cooldown system and you have to accept the.

This post is ignorant. Elizabeth is a Smart AI, and she's not paper weight carrying around through the whole game. Never once have I seen her just walk straight into walls.That so many AI do on these current gen games.

Have you ever seen Idiocracy? The first five minutes explain that the stupid people are out-breeding the smart ones, and...what can I tell you? The programmers have adjusted their AI accordingly.
