Quake 3 was probably the last game I played a lot up until maybe 3 or 4 years ago, CTF fun :p Now my legit CD Key doesn't work, so I can't play it anymore :(

 

Anyway, this guy has a server and purposely left 16 AI bots to duke it out between each other, here's what happened:

Hahaha, I love the idea of bots reaching a level of intelligence where they realise the best thing to do to survive is not fight! :rofl:

And the fact that they ganged up on the guy that did want to fight...brilliant.

Someone already quoted the line from WarGames, so nothing for me to say here.

Oh but lookee here! I've been running a similar server for the past 10 years and each of my bots AI logs weigh a hefty 7GB. Ooh :D

WarGames is the first thing that poped into my mind when I started reading this.
