I was thinking, what are the not so obvious ways for using matrices in games? We all know of matrices to be an integral part of 3D space transformation. But since a matrix is but a block of numbers, there must be interesting ways of using it for other things, specifically in games. Please share your thoughts. :)


Start by doing what is necessary; then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Color matrices is the other obvious one.

Perhaps AI, neural networks and other machine learning algorithms tend to be matrix intense.

The entire game '2048' is a matrix :)

If empty cells are zeroes.
