First-Person Shooters Predicted the Future...

#1iPr0kkaFTWPosted 3/1/2014 1:20:37 PM
The Russian Federation has clandestinely invaded another country (Ukraine) despite the strong warnings from other political world leaders or groups such as the United States President Barack Obama, the European Union, NATO and the United Nations. The Russians indicted that President Obama had crossed the red line and seriously insulted when Obama made his comments that there will be costs or consequences if Russia militarily gets involved in Ukraine. Russia defiantly ignored and authorized forces to occupy.

Many military first-person shooters (including real-time strategy) games such as Battlefield and Call of Duty have had portrayed the Russians as great adversaries. In video games, the Russian Federation always seemingly waging war with immense military might against the United States and/or NATO due to political disagreements or ongoing conflicts.

What will unfold that has yet to come is now rather frightening to think of instead than being entertained when playing a first-person shooter against the Russians.

Um yeah. You do know that Russia has been the typical enemy of the USA in every single work of fiction since the end of WWII, right? They didn't predict the future, they were just playing off the cold war. >_>

Killing's the first thing humans learned. And a good thing we did, or we'd be dead, and the Mudcrabs would own the earth.

No they didn't! World War 3 would have started if they pulled that crap!

Besides, the surrounding states would have stepped in and cleaned their commie-loving clocks!!

Like on the PS4 board... Hilariously stupid to think any FPS predicted anything.

I think that he thought that you were talking about the state, not the country...

if FPSs predicted the future, then I'm waiting for the day that a research facility in New Mexico opens a gate for alien lifeforms to invade our world.
