The lights are on
Games are inspired by reality in so many different ways, especially by
story and plot. Sure, there isn't much of a similarity between real life
and a game when the galaxy is under attack by a sentient race of
god-like machines, or when zombies infest a tropical paradise. There
are, however, connections between some current international events, and
other scenarios that games offer to gamers. Some of these real-world
conflicts I touch on in this blog are hot topics, so here's a big
disclaimer that I hope you will take the time to read.
I apologize if I offend anyone, as this is not my intent.
In each section, I start out by stating what the similar issues are, followed
by the background of the game's and real world's respective issue. Then
I bridge the two and show the similarities.
