It already feels like there is a way for a system to be monitored the same way TIs can 'sense' a presence monitoring computers and surveillance cameras.
I was in a room with a gamer playing Mass Effect 3 and upon my being interested in a certain side character conversation, asking the gamer to make certain choices for a female ai character who recently went into a human female looking body.
The choices i made seemed to amuse a seemingly male presence somewhere monitoring the game. I distinctly got an impression of this response. It could have been the same presence that many Targets feel monitor us personally and have for years now. It did feel as if it was from something connected to the gaming system.
I was trying to see if the female robot could outright acknowledge that the crewmembers were now attentive to her due to her new body having huge breasts etc.
The characters could only skirt around this issue and I got a distinct impression some presence 'out there' was amused by this. As the gamer on this system usually plays straight through and is serious about gaming.
Also remember I havent been around a vid game system since 2004. Alot of things have changed. It seems more advanced, more interactive, complex, connected to internet and actually focused on more than just first person shooter. Thankfully being 41 I still can always see through graphics and structure and percieve that this is just code-just a game. When we were just early teens they taught how to write programs from their beginnings in school. What frightens me is that this gamer is only 19. He says hes been playing since he was two..since his hands were strong enough to pick up a paddle. Uh, this is NOT a good thing for the world.
