a human brain is something that not even the best biologists understand properly yet so how you expect them to replicate one in a computer just yet is astounding. all forms of 'emotion' in machines today are the result of pre-programmed reactions to certain effects. not true emotion or even the start of true emotion.
EDIT: Also, with the Gnimo example, keep in mind we're playing a game, which already has enough bizarre concepts as it is.
No emotions land would be a worse place to live imo.
Each person would be out for himself in the most Darwinian sense. Without compassion, altruism and empathy it would be down to survival of the fittest. It would be a brutal place to live.
Becoming a robot is to give up freedom. No thanks. Also there's no such thing as good and evil, its all point of view; the ends always justify the means.
Humans are the only creatures on the planet that kills for joy/excitement.
All other creatures have a more or less rational reason for taking lives.
Your greed, your foolishness has brought you to this end.

LoL... I bet you hated killing those Mechagnomes... :P
I'm going to take an educated guess and say that a moderator is watching this thread very very VERY closely.
While I agree that negative human emotions are bad, eliminating emotions would also eliminate perfectly good ones, like love, compassion, and happiness.
And what makes you think being free of emotion makes everyone get along? All wars have been fought for territories and resources, both which are limited whether we have emotions or not. If you so much want to become a robot, read about the experiment where robots evolved to lie to eachother, to kill off competition.
Was it evil in the eyes of those committing the crimes(nazis)? Evil is all a point of view, based on your mindset and your own beliefs. While i like to think that the ultimate system of judgment would be to base everything on the good and happiness of humanity (which would in turn, make the holocaust extremely evil). Evil is still subjective
The main point you have not grasped is that life is a struggle no matter which way you slice it. This is what makes life worth living. Gambling is no fun if you don't have the chance at losing. Video games aren't fun if you always play on easy with all the cheat codes on. Some of the most beautiful art has come from a source of pain.
The fact that we have free will does allow things such as WWII to happen but the challenge is to evolve past the reasons we fight. Unfortunately when you have a population on a great scale things such as famine, disease, and war are inevitable. They are the natural order of a culling of a population.
Will there one day be a society free of emotion? I can't say for sure but my money is on emotion staying with the humans.

If we eliminated life, there would be no suffering. Why not eliminate all life?Would life not be better if most forms of suffering were eliminated?
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.

No but seriously, without religion and greed, the world would be a happier place.
