How AI will completely change video games

  • Published on Mar 5, 2019
  • AI in video games is very different than the AI in self-driving cars, smart home devices, and natural language algorithms. That’s because game developers have been sticking to the basics, but all that is starting to change. Researchers today are incorporating more cutting-edge AI advancements into games. In the future, these tools could result in games designing themselves with characters that can learn and adapt to the player.

    Has anything weird or unexpected happened to you while playing a video game?

      In GTA San Andreas I saw a car driving on two wheels. Another one was a motorcyclist on the highway that sped really fast and somehow weave its way through the traffic..

      To this day, the most-memorable gunfight I've had in an FPS; was in Far Cry 2, way back in 2008. It also transformed a random patrol-usually cannon fodder to be dispatched without thought or care; into the fight of my gaming life. First my assault rifle jammed. Then I flicked out my sidearm-jam. Plan C, was toss a grenade; everyone runs.
      They got me in the end; but that was the first time I figured out and made instinctual; plan C.

      The limitations imposed on me [why I deliberately used only the rustiest of guns-their unpredictability-to myself and many others, it was the single best feature of FC2]; gave the AI a fighting chance. I frequently had weapons explode outright-leaving me with nothing, and RPGs plop out and spin at my feet.

      The main limiting problem with Far Cry games, which won't be solved for Far Cry 6 [as it's constrained by last-gen hardware]; is the limited number of enemies on screen. I'm pretty sure that's why civilians disappear in CP77, at least on PS4; to make CPU room for adequate numbers of enemies on screen. Except for a couple of outposts in FC3: there are never enough-hence they chose the bullet-sponge route for all subsequent Far Crys. But there is another, third way-which doesn't require raw CPU power...

    I like unpredictability in games myself. I also love being part of an early access game where the dev's add and try new things. It would be cool to see an AI in a game like that where the players are part of the teaching process as the Devs are. Also, AI could be useful for keeping online servers populated too.

    They at least could make partially neural network trained AI for bots to teach them to avoid going into walls and obvious stupid things. Lets be honest, single player games are lacking AI that could show some common sence and could surprise a player.

      Common sense it's really a hard thing to teach. There is no AI in the world that has it, and this is because it's a skill that flourishes in a complex multisensorial environment. And it needs A LOT of experience, humans struggle with common sense too.

    I have a story about AI and Machine Learning from the developers at Sony's Bend Studio. They've never talked about it to journalists, I merely heard it because I'm a family friend of the lead developer. This may or may not be true, but I heard during their development for Day's Gone, the AI NPCs were learning how to do things they were not programmed to be able to do. They were literally scaling walls and entering areas that they should have been incapable of traversing. It actually freaked the team out. It's almost as if the characters were programming themselves.

    I can imagine in the future how this could happen in real time after market., creating completely unique experiences per player. Perhaps singularity will even originate from within a game.

    It would be interesting if there is game modes outside of the main game that pair you against AI enemies (with a NN algorithm), that way it wouldn't need to be predictable. An example would be in fighting games or with a boss fights. Imagine having that boss that was defeated thousands of times now its impossible to beat, but you see people much like the speedrunning communities keep trying to beat him.

    Wow imagine Rockstar using AI to map cities like Chicago or Miami streets to make gta 6 and we get an almost realistic map of vice city or Las Venturas or even San ferrio. My God...

    well, we have already Starcraft 2 using this learning AI and it is much more fun than the predictable AI we were used to....also Learning ai can be controlled, just using it in parts of a game, leaving the rest to the control of a game I don't see the problem at all..I would like to see warcraft 2 using the same AI, all the old strategy games, like UFO Enemy unknown, etc....Dos Doom, it would be cool to apply Ai to the enemies, or just a few of them...I don't need to talk with them, just Ai that can challenge the player unpredictably...but even this can be limited by the could for example be applied to how the enemies are using their weapons, or the path they choose...many many examples of Ai that can be limited by choice by the we really welcome this new way to play against the computer, we are sick tired of multiplayer games....well I don't like them at all.

  • Lior Beaugendre

    I wonder why a company don't just create a good AI (for each type of games) that they would then sell to studios rather than game's studios creating a small AI that they don't have the time to polish each time that they make a game... Or BIG AAA companies could develop a very sophisticated AI that they would use for several games, especially since they like to milk their big licenses.

    Damn, what happens when AI becomes close enough to people that you genuinely start caring for them on a personal level?

I’d feel hella weird being that attached to a virtual character but just like in the movie Her where will the line stop?

  • Primodernious
    Primodernious Year ago

    the solution to the ai breaking the game problem is to give the ai the same challange as human. when the ai get smarter, we just have to increase the requirements for the ai to beat the player making it harder for the ai to win by giving it more complexity to deal with to beat the player. if a artifical intelligence had as much as us humans to worry about when battle a player in a game, the ai would not be as clever anymore in the game play sense. actually if the ai have to learn to walk and learn to adapt behavior at the same time learn to use a weapond and find strategies to operate these skills under this complexity, it will not be as good at beating the player as before. a realistic gravity simulation would be needed. we chould also make the ai in need to eat and excrement and sleep to make it more difficult to play the game. if the ai get wounded, it would have to deal with the challange to surviving when wounded. the player in this case probably would do better than the ai. we chould give the ai vision and make it learn to to recognize the enemy like a human do by trial and error. what we do is that we let the ai randomly shoot at the player caracter by aiming with vision. if the ai win by luck, it can modiy its learning to detect the enemy training in patterns that would over time resemble the world around it by trying to kill the player caracter correcting the learning of the network by using battle as a mean to grow confidence in detecting the enemy in what pixels either black white green or blue that is more likely a person than anything else. if the ai had to play like a human, it would not win so easly anymore. we could even give it feelings by creating collision detector arrays acting as touch sensors and us a certain pattern to mimic a feeling and then use the detection distribuation for it to tell apart where the feeling, detected pattern is on its body at any given moment in time.

If the characters in red dead reemption were really thinking for themselves, I don’t think I could hurt them even though it’s within a video game.... wouldn’t that really just be the real life West World?

    • No One
      No One Year ago

      @AmazingArends Well, they're not real, so does it matter? They have no feelings (yet). The problem begins when they start understanding love, hate and other feelings. Until then, they're just a bunch of metal and algorithms that mimic real humans. In Westworld they're not real. They have no feelings and they feel no pain. So what's the problem in killing them for fun? Still, a philosophical discussion ...

    • AmazingArends
      AmazingArends 2 years ago +2

      I think that will be a real issue in the future. People will be feel bad about killing a character if it seems too "smart." Farther off, there may even be an ethical and moral dilemma about creating intelligent virtual characters whose only purpose is to be killed.

    AI based generations has been going on for years in video games and you can easily distinguish it from hand crafted content. you cannot create games world class games like "God of war " without human emotions to carving it by hand.

    AI can "assist" game development sure. But games can't mass produce by themselves solely based on AI and machine learning unless you are contempt playing repeated iterations of games

    Seriously Verge, you make me lose respect for your team with titles such as these.

    Saul Livshutz 2 years ago

    I don't know what you mean when you compare the AI of NPCs to AI in terms of neural networks. The NPCs are hardcoded to do things written by the developer so it isn't intelligent as it does not learn its just a computer that takes input and spits out an output. AI is when the developer creates a type of network which lets the computer code itself, which creates an improving computer at whatever task. It can improve so much that its strategies are beyond human comprehension due to its networks. I also have no idea how the randomness of birds getting shot has anything to do with AI since that's just a physics system. Who in the world said AI is about making games real, sure that's how it can be used but that's not what AI really is.

      Idk if it would be a bad thing if they remember my crimes forever... i mean, isn't the game supposed to be a simulation? Maybe do a run where you are a bad boy and one where you a good fella.

    You lost me at "How AI will". AI enthusiasts always promise "stuff of science fiction" for "soon" but they're really short on things that "AI" actually does well today.

    • AmazingArends

      That's because, as soon as a development is achieved in AI, it stops being impressive. The idea of talking to your phone and having it instantly translate into Russian was a sci-fi fantasy 30 years ago. Nowadays, it's no big deal.

      You can always handicap the AI, can't you? Make it slower to move, have certain reaction times, not have perfect aim... limited FOV and sight... would it then be a problem if it's smarter than us?
