if you want to see an example of the amazing merging of emergent simulation and gaming, take a look at the amazing 30 minute demonstration by Will Wright of his new game Spore, where you evolve and build creatues.

That's an amazing video, and it demontrates what looks like great technology.
The way it handles the ambience is just perfect, and all the liberty the user has to change and go through the cenario is just impressive.
Oh, and the cenario.. At the end, the God powers are genious. It generates new scenarios and worlds that evolve based on the changes you've done to the scenario before. That's original Wink
I loved it, saw it almost all. Thanks!  Thmbsup Thmbsup

The video started out a little slow -- and spore evolution simulation? It's been done.  I looked at the length of the video, fidgeted, hit pause and stepped out for a smoke.

After some nicotine enriched fresh air, I committed myself to watching it -- and it gave me chills.  If the hands on is true to that teaser, this game exponentially transcends anything ever put in the hands of us mortals.  It strives to be everything you ever loved about every RTS game/god sim/galactic game you've played -- and more.

It looks . . . impossible.  I can't wait.  Is there an ETA?

Anyone remember the game EVO for the SNES?  Finally, we get a proper spiritual successor!

Slight spoilers for anyone who hasn't seen the video:

Seriously, the option to blow up a planet if you desire?  How cool!  And I wonder if he was serious when he said that star was about to go supernova and "we need to stay clear of that"?  Could you?  Even if not, the idea of your whole solar system you built from scratch being wiped out by a supernova star is amazing.

I seriously hope it takes some long, hard grinding to get to such levels of power though.  I can understand if the casual gamers aren't looking for a game that long, but I don't want to go from a spore to an intergalactic master in the span of a few hours, personally.  I'm a little confused as to WHY they want to populate the game world with other player's creatures, cities, planets etc... personally I would think the computer could probably randomly generate something just as good.  I'm sure they've tested this though, and perhaps the game will truly feel contentiously fresh and unpredictable.

I have to wonder how lizard creatures drive tanks and planes, though.  I was a little bit disappointed that in no time after the mating phase did they ever evolve.  Why would your primitive creatures not further evolve from what we would consider the cavemen days?  I was quite hoping for one more evolutionary leap before cities and vehicles.
