Elon Musk on life being a video game: graphics are great, DLC is $$$$

Musk says the graphics are great, plot is confusing and the tutorial is 'way too long'

Elon Musk is always pondering something, and most of the time those ponderings come out into the real-world in the form of his personal tweets. One of those was a new question, asking if life were a video game. Musk was only just spotted around the streets of LA in a prototype Cybertruck.

Musk tweeted: "If life is a video game, the graphics are great, but the plot is confusing & the tutorial is way too long". But the top tweet is my favorite as it is close to my heart: @boomborks asked Musk to tweet #ReleaseTheSnyderCut in support of releasing the true vision of Justice League, not the Joss Whedon-directed, WB-destroyed theatrical version.

From there, Musk replied saying that "Your DLC is $$$$" and then this gem: "Games only render what you look at when you look at it, as the compute load would otherwise be impossibly high. Until observed, objects are a probability function, aka quantum mechanics". Don't worry, as the subject of NPCs was also talked about, with @Braddock512 saying "Also, a lot of the NPCs suck", to which Musk replied: "Seriously, the NPC dialog tree should have more options".

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
