    Well sure, if I’m playing something competitively and I think something cheap just occured, I’d love to see an avatar of mine get all rrrrrRRRRAAAAAEEEEEEEEGGGGGGG!

    I see fighting games benefit from it…because I have a feeling the opponent would be ‘amused’ in response.

    So, if I can’t beat a boss after the seventy-gazillionth time, the boss will eventually cower away after it senses me rambling like a madman? That would be useful.

    I’m pretty stoic while playing games, but this could move games in an interesting direction. Hopefully, it’ll be stable unlike the speech recognition used for Lifeline.

    The picture on the TV is pretty funny, but overall something to “identify emotions” to identify what triggers each emotion scares me a little.

    With all that data collected, developers could just put in elements that have been proven to trigger a certain emotion and they’ll never need to exert any effort again and there will never be anything original or made with actual care anymore.

    Generally (technologically) I find it thrilling and definitely it has great potential to make games more real.
    But also theres a big potential for game makers to hook people even better to that game. Those games could become a real drug then (“give me that feeling only you can give me”) you know what I mean?
