We must keep the dream alive! Also, I’m a sucker for the first two bournes Movies – the latter lost the thread and, dear God, don’t ever read those damn books… I’ll never get that time back – that got an ambitious, but not so great, video game adaptation. That only left me wanting a real spy thriller video game experience and I, like many others, was always hopeful that Rockstar was long in development agent

Spy thrillers are a lot of fun, but put you in an open world with maybe a sprinkling of elden ring-style mystique that doesn’t spell things out for you, and we’d have a game where we’d speed through a metropolis trying to piece together some sort of super-secret government conspiracy, chasing people across rooftops and getting into gunfights wherever you want the Dodge cops not just because they’re the enemy force, but because they blow your cover?

Now we can envision the probably not too far-fetched future where an AI can easily create a game based on this kind of prompt. And certainly such an advance in technology, where we could create complex media using mere language, would make us reconsider our antiquated intellectual property and copyright laws put in place in the pre-digital era. Right? …Right?
