Bots in Gaming

Here's a great DEFCON presentation on subverting the WoW API -


Avoiding the debate over whether bots are harming gaming - let's talk about the programming behind them.

I consider MMO playing Bots to be really impressive programming feats, I wouldn't mind making a bot that can play ANY kind of game by itself (check out this bot that uses TETRIS to draw images using algorithms http://youtu.be/PJkHwulsac4) -


Has anyone USED a bot before, and if so in what game?

Has anyone MADE a script that can play games automatically before?

And finally - what's your opinion on bots? Are they cool, or a travesty of misplaced talent and effort?
