So, let's do this thing. If anyone has anything against anything here, discuss.
First of all, there are different kinds of creature code:
-Humans: Ever thought why Pinocchio wanted to be a real boy? Their biggest selling point of humans, the emotions, is deemed "illogical" by other inhabitants of the web, but they can't argue how happy humans seem to be like with them, and how reluctant they often are to let them go. Sometimes an occasional cyber gives it a shot, and likes what he feels. Humans win by the Power of Love!
- AI: The most common integration type, at least by humans, AIs are often made for hacking, cracking, and lurking, and these abilities are made easier to do when integrating their code. In addition, they have superior physical skills, with far more raw strength than humans. Plus you can't argue that metal arms look awesome.
- Cybers: Hm. This part still requires more than a little bit of work. I just can't seem to make up anything cool, logical, and useful for them.
- Viruses: Integration of these is called infections, and they're always purely negative. No one in their right mind would ever voluntarily integrate with a virus.
- Olds: This last type is extremely rare to obtain, but is sometimes left behind by a rampaging lovecrafian horror. These little pieces of data generally contain incredible knowledge from the days long gone, information, skills, and abilities, enough to turn anyone integrating them into a force to be reckoned with. Except that they're also an incredible burden, being taken from an unstoppable power, and tend to cause quite plenty of bad stuff.
