Is cross-platform play the future of online gaming?
Undoubtedly! Gaming is arguably the most immersive entertainment medium out there and players are engrossed in games across devices. Multi-player games are the most popular gaming options but uniformity in devices cannot be ensured in any manner. Therefore, in order to cater to the highest number of players at a time and offer the most dynamic, engaging and socially productive experience to gamers, developers need to make their games device agnostic and support cross-platform gaming to the hilt.
How video games can help artificial intelligence deliver real world impact?
AI is required to make the transition from virtual to real experiences. The game should be able to mimic real-life experiences as that is where the thrill is. AI helps to bridge this gap in the best possible manner, as it tracks gamer behavior data to help developers keep the surprise element alive in a game by observing the gamer’s decisions. On the other hand, it can be used to enhance the customer experience, by informing them about the new games they might like, gaming events/tournaments, enabling micro-targeted marketing and optimizing the gamer-developer engagement process. Just like almost every other industry, the scope for AI in gaming is huge.
How IoT will transform the online gaming industry?
IoT will help to accentuate the experience of online gaming to make the ambience of the physical space reflect the mood of the game. Through wearables, sensors, tags etc. the gap between the virtual and real experience is fast dissolving. It also helps to bring more comfort, security and convenience to the players, monitoring the health of the players, offering restrictions if a gamer is driving etc. From transforming the physical ambience of a player to accentuate his/her gaming experience to optimizing their time, health and other concerns, IoT can go a long way in making gaming an integral part of an individual’s lifestyle.
Will AR/VR change the world of gaming? How?
While IoT can help in enhancing the gaming experience, AR and VR can literally transform any space into a gaming arena, thereby blurring the lines between what is real and virtual. The phenomenal success of AR/VR based games all over the world is proof of the technology’s ability to offer a one-of-its-kind experience that might just become the future of gaming.
What is the role of Big Data and predictive analytics in online gaming?
Big Data and Predictive Analytics can help in a two-fold way-by enhancing the customer experience and helping developers build better products. It can play a huge factor in helping gamers make the best purchases, help developers give the ultimate personalized experience to users and enhance in-game efficiency as well.
How Blockchain is completely disrupting the online gaming industry?
User data remains secured in a decentralized manner. As gaming becomes more transactional, blockchain will play a pivotal role to maximize the trust factor for the entire industry. Furthermore, with mainstream entertainment and gaming collaborating in the future, blockchain will play a big part in bringing the content creators, game developers and the end-users in direct engagement.
