So yea I dunno if you've read about this story of a Pokemon game being played real time on Twitch by thousands of users at the same time.
I found this interesting article about how community actually evolved into two different factions and each of them seek a different approach about the game and how they created numerous artistic installments etc. They even created religions... damn.
I mean do you think "we" (devs, community, god, spiderman) could actually experiment more with this and maybe create some kind of a sandbox game where people could actually shape the world and the story real time and progress it all together. I mean sounds kinda crazy awesome no?
Here's a link to this article http://mashable.com/2014/02/19/pokemon-stream-twitch/
What started as a relatively small, crowdsourced play-through of Pokémon has become something of a global cultural experiment — spurring fan-created mythology, a battle of political systems, and even warring religions.
On Feb. 13, an anonymous programmer startedTwitch Plays Pokémon. Viewers of the gaming service Twitch would enter various commands — up, down, left, right, a, b — in a chat window; those commands would be performed in the classic Nintendo game Pokémon Red and Blue.
At first, this experimental interactive game had a fairly small audience of around 1,600 people, but it has since amassed a following of over 100,000 viewers, becoming one of the most popular streams on the streaming website, Twitch.
