8 UNUSUAL Real-Life Predictions Made By Video Games


Some video games have managed to predict real life things either completely by accident or with some good reasoning. Here are some wild examples.

    In terms of the Elite Dangerous thing, well what do you think will happen if you hire a (if i remember correctly) particle physicist from a organisation simmilar to CERN to make your stellar forge (the galaxy generation tool they use/used). Plus the generated galaxy ingame is based on our actual scientific knowledge about ozr own galaxy, so I assume that there are maaaaany simmilar "predictions" in that gamemap somewhere, with some players gametag on it

    Funfacts: Echolon was utterly useless against criminal organizations since most of them relied on mechanical, non-electronic and often direct personal messaging, even for cryptic and hidden interactions. Number 3: Was also predicted by several other games like Divinity Original Sin Number 2: Unboiling might unlock unfreezing, which culminates into cryostasis possiblity Number 1: Good incentive to make a video listing top video games that make you consider reality to be a form of The Matrix Number 0: Command & Conquer got orbital lasers right, but it's not like evidence would be shown on public mass media for long before being edited/censored or taken out of context. On a same note, ask any creeptic person who watched livestreams and camsharing if they ever could tell the difference when a guy was genuinely using technology to disguise as a girl. It's fascinating what one can find out simply through memes these days.

    The Origins one didn't predict it. They have ancient roman texts about the room from the time of Caesar. While it hadn't been found, archaeologists pretty much knew it existed for 2000 years.

    Did assassins creed predict a hidden chamber in the pyramids or was there speculation about a hidden chamber for like ever? Is it really amazing that madden predicted that the patriots would win and that Tom Brady would be the MVP or was that the obvious favorite since even before the season started? You know the architect who designed the shard started in 2000 so it's likely that one or two years before construction there was bussle about a new building project called the shard in London... Seems like eschelon is an old conspiracy theory that existed long before metal gear The Sonic thing really isn't a prediction... Kind of grasping at straws with the Pokemon one...

    @Christopher Foreman, the Pokemon one was not reaching, and neither was the Sonic one, as there are two different species of snail that are literally known to not only live near volcanic areas, but also that have shells that are made out of literal rock, most likely, volcanic ash, and the Sonic one, in case you were too stupid to comprehend it the first time, was literally from a prototype of a game that had a feature that was pretty much like the one that would be made in Sonic Mania.

    "They managed to beat science by less then a week" ... Ehem. Does anyone have no clue how scientific research progress and publishing works?... Scientists were probably searching and scanning for those chambers maaany years before the game even started taking shape. Coincidence only, that the publishing of their findings came a few days after the game released.

    lol nr 8 the secret chamber was already known yet not published, there is another one under the sphinx, and it has a energetic tunnel that connects to a area in tibet and one under the Bucegi mountains in romania, and probably one in iraq (main reason of the war) these stuff were known since early 20s on some level, they was discovered due to a satelite with the technology you mentioned in the video, but the first one discovered and the biggest was the one under bucegi mountains, and the fact that it had connections with other chambers,there was extreme political clashes between usa and romania because of it, the sole thing that fast forwarded romania into NATO alliance, iraq wasnt so lucky im afraid... they either didnt want to share or had no idea of it, its uncertain... but the technology discovered in those chambers is...well lets say, incredibly mind blowing..

    The Sonic one just sounds too coincidental. It was made by fans. And fans of games do tend to find new cool things in the things they like. I personally wouldn't count that as a prediction since it's a Sonic mechanic that was later used in another Sonic game. They could have easily discovered it when they were younger and later decided to add it when they made their own sonic game. "Tooting your own horn" comes to mind.
