MMORPG ScreenSaver

My computer can beat up your computer...

Instead of flashing up a boring screensaver, your computer goes on the Internet, logs into a computers-only gameserver and battles with other computers who are on their coffeebreak too.

Since the environment is being built by the gameserver, and all the other player-characters are run by other computers, your computer only has to do the AI for *one* character which makes for a much more interesting video.

       Cool, It could even log into games being played by humans in "Audience only" mode too!. [+]

       "stalker mode", funny but that's a totally different idea. I was thinking of an addon where the human could take over the controls (and get creamed in a couple seconds). § x1

       [+] Great idea! You could sit in front of it and make believe it's you working the controls and impress your kids. You could also have it doing Day Trading, you might make a buck or two.
