Cool. These are games that are making an actual impact. Not that I don't like my mindless FPS games ;)

My PS3 and laptop are always being useful by Folding@Home pretty much 24/7.

Wonder if they are going to release a desktop version that "plays itself".

For all you know you could end up designing the next gen bio warfare DNA sequence... ever though of that? We could always design a scientific game and ask people how to design a Nuke or something of that sort with their ideas.....

What, alyoshka?

Science rocks! Sure, some bad people use science to make and do terrible things, but what's your point? Games like this are a great way to get the general public involved in the search for creative solutions to global problems.

After all the mindless shooters it is nice to see something actually worth doing with all our computing power.
And before you thumb me down; I DO like the occasional rampage down main street with all guns blazing :)

Hey I take offense to that! LOL. No really, everytime I get out of being in the hospital for a few days, I play Halo and drive around a warthog, wrecklessly. It seems to help me get my equilibrium back on track. It has to be THAT game. Everything else (Battlefield, specifically) moves too slow.

Intel...whatever AMD....not even close, the human brain is the best processor we have on the planet. It sees more the 1 or 0. Just think if a billion brains were working on these "games".

The very last game I played was Panzer General II. That was a very very long time ago. I just might give Phylo a try. After all, there is a possibility, however remote, that one could help solve a serious genetic problem.
