Computers have their place, but the AI is still in its infancy.  For that reason, I think TT RPG's will continue for decades.

There is no AI which can emulate an imaginative DM -- not even the HAL9000:  "What are you going to do, Dave?  Attack, run, or surrender?  Remember, Dave, the Computer is your friend..."  "Dave" needs to remember that the HAL9000 was originally developed to run the PARANOIA RPG.

Poor "Dave":  the HAL9000 also controls his Smart House...   :o

LOL!  Cheers!

When the players do something unexpcted, that's when the game really begins.

Quite true, especially when they come up with a way to resolve a monster/trap/etc. that I hadn't thought of. That's when as a DM I start having the most fun. ;)

Sounds to me like he was predicting the Wii. We've had that for years.

Second Edition AD&D / Damh the Horned Beast

Child of Titania and Oberon, Damh the Horned Beast (pronounced DAV) is the revelrous patron of satyrs and korred. Despite his love for wine, women, and song, he is the physically strongest member of the Seelie Court, and the first to come to defense of sylvan lands.

Maybe like Roll20? Its a computer VR dungeon/etc. but everything is being guided by a live DM instead of a computer system?

I think the OSR will keep steady. I feel like I still continue to see it grow. I also feel like TTRPGs will stick around.

I am trying to think of the computer OSR. Will we have like VR with DM rulings over rules? How would that work. This is kind of an interesting thought process.
