Absurd, Strange, and Highly Improbable Life Goal: Will You Help?

283w ago - So I recently came up with something I can do that would let me die accomplished: I want to play a game that was never programmed.

I've been thinking about it for about a week now, but haven't done much research on it but I came to these few conclusion so far:

• The game will essentially be "randomly" created
• The simplest "terminal" for the project would be NES
• The generated file should be between 5KB and 25KB, and follow the rules for zip compression. (This is the part that makes everything improbable -there are 7.4583407 E1125 possible files that could be produced (expanded example below) (25000^256))
• The production of the file will have a initial seed, and ideally keep a log of tested values
• Ideally a check on the NES ROM should also be performed.
• With the number of possibilities, the likelyhood of a game being produced is just as probable as a picture Pam Anderson loading up or even the first few lines of a Shakespeare play, or Beethoven's Symphony.
• A user in control of the produced random value can copy/paste, a known value, and easily load a game such TETRIS...(I can't quite understand if this would be violation of Copyright Law (I compare it to throwing a tomato on the ground and it coming out being just like Mario))

Gamers: Video Games Versus Real Life

50°
302w ago - Just under a week ago we featured a Compulsive Gamers Not Addicts article, and today a related topic of dicussion is Video Games Versus Real Life.

Since the dawn of time, there have been conflicts. Men Vs Women, Right Vs Wrong, the list goes on. But have we really gotten to the bottom of any of these? Well now, it's time to solve a conflict so steeped in history that some of you just might not be old enough to remember when it began.

We all know the stereotypes that come into play here. There's the typical 'nerd', complete with sweaty palms and dorky glasses. The other being the 'jock'. The sports loving, woman seducing bully. Obviously, recent times have changed this situation.

More and more 'regular' people are playing games, and the nerd stereotype is becoming less of a crux of gaming. But whenever you picture the Real Life Vs Video Games argument, that's what you think of, right?

Cast your mind back to school. Remember when it came time to choose sides for a good old game of football? In every school, there was that guy. The absolute best player. You spent your early life losing every time to some guy named Connor with a perfectly toned body and an...
