    This is not a joke. 
    I’m a part of Nin-17, a group of rebels working to make peace to our earth in 2291. This is our first secret time-travel mission to change the past at the point of relapse.

    Time to go back to the drawing board, your leaders should have deduced that an internet forum in 2018 would be a terrible place to get your message across, better do it in real life from a spaceship or everyone will claim it's fake and photoshopped.

    I can’t go public because we learned that your goverments will probably kidnap me if they know about me.

    Thanks for the heads up Shinx.  Hey, can you tell me what was going on in VR in 2074 that caused the collapse of humanity?  I'll bet it was super realistic VR porn.  Nobody could be bothered to work anymore.  I'll bet the sales of recliners and tissue paper were through the roof though.

    Just between you and me, can you whisper to me who wins the upcoming superbowls over the next few years?  I'll take some of those proceeds and put it towards saving the world, I promise.

    Said on a public forum. :)

    Seriously though, everybody go read Electric State by Simon Stålenhag. It's about the end of the world due to VR. Awesome artwork.

    Jeez, John Titor is back.
    Although I'm glad now that I know he is actually a cute teenage warrior.


    Current VR results imo:
    - Great small apps. Great ports of bigger games.
    - Great VR-specific features. Not enough showcased!!!
    - Too many actors in the industry, the market is totally broken.


    My hopes for VR next gen:

    - Better ratio between visual quality and power needs. No more godrays and less SDE.
    - Full Body Tracking.

    Time travel when do we want it? Its irrelevant.
    Should I ever gain the ability to go back in time I would already know it. 
    Or by going back in time I changed time so I didn't have the ability to go back in time. 
    So by going back in time I made it so I cant go back in time. 
    This is all so confusing. 
    All I know is if you mess with time there are consequences, we could start a cascade of events that could damage our very existence or worse. 
    What could be worse? Open your eyes and take a walk in Walmart around 10:30 some night!!!

    sooo....how's Oculus doing in the future? They must still exist since you know about them in this time period. How many more versions of Skyrim exist? :p

    Surely VR must be an implant by now in your time period...can't still be an HMD!!! B)

    By the time I have posted this they already have your IP address and you are likely already in custody.

    At least you wont see the degradation of society in your tiny black prison cell.

    I however will enjoy VR even knowing whats comming.

    Screw you future selves!
    WAAAGH!

    If I were able to go back in time, my priority would not be to visit a forum (as wonderful as this one is)… I'd go back and tell my overly shy child self to enjoy the hell out of growing up and ignore any voices saying 'don't do that cos something embarrassing could happen'.

    Ironically I now need a voice telling me to do the opposite.

    I would go back in time with an almanac of sports score and make millions in Vegas everyyear by predicting the winners of yearly leagues.

    I would of course have to get many wrong so as not to arouse suspecions!

    so why dont yall make like a tree and get out of here
    WAAAGH!

    You know my life hasn't turned out that bad. Sure there are things that I would change but who is to say I didn't already try that and made it worse. 
    No if I could go back there is only one thing I would do and its not for me.
    A friend of mine was attacked by 3 men and if I could go back I would stop that from ever happening and make sure they never had a chance to do it to anyone else.
    So time traveler if you have that power I expect you have already sent me a PM and I didn't notice.

    If I could travel in time I'd go forward 30 years or so just to see how @vannagirl ages. If she doesn't age like a fine wine but ages more like a pint of milk I'd find someone else to stalk and sexually harass. :p

    I don't understand, why has the OP not PM'ed me, surely they would know everyone who was involved in this thread from future records, OR, did they know NOT! to pm me, so that i actually came in here to enquire about not being PM'ed, hence keeping the timeline unchanged, so in fact if the op HAD pm'ed me they would have actually changed the timeline, but that also begs the question, now that i know about the OP and this thread and the possible outcome of both scenarios, does that not mean the timeline has already been changed because i know there could be two possible timelines to these scenarios, OR was i supposed to know about the two possible scenarios and timelines....and i have gone crosseyed. lol
