The future is quite a conundrum because we don’t know what might happen. Wise men have said that how you spend your days is how you spend your life which might be true, but they haven’t had the technology that’s available to us today.
Thanks to the many advances we’re able to see the moon and even fly to it, but we still won’t know what the universe hides. Games take an active role in predicting the future. They let players enjoy a good or a grim one and take various accounts when making a sci-fi title.
Fiction may turn into fact as human imagination moves technology which is why video games give us a glimpse into the future. In that regard, here are several titles that show you a possible future:
Fallout: New Vegas
Nuclear fallout is a possibility because there are lots of countries in the world that have nuclear warheads which could spell disaster for the world. New Vegas focuses on a post-apocalyptic Sin City where mutants roam and the survivors are fighting each other for control of what’s left.
New Vegas is one possible version of Las Vegas today. Sin City is alive and well although most of the industry is online nowadays. Sites like Spinsify.co/uk cover the variety of games available at online casino sites such as table games, slots, live casino titles, and even some sites too. The main thing to remember about them is to enjoy them responsibly.
New Vegas has 5 establishments where players can come in and enjoy a casino game or two. There are several table games and even some slot machines that will award you bottle caps, gear, or a key to a suite if you’re lucky. Even after a nuclear fallout people are looking for a way to entertain themselves, but would also go at each other’s throats when it comes to surviving.
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
It may be called the Old Republic but from our point of view, it would be a new one. Either way, according to this game we would discover the Force and would train Jedi as monk-warriors and diplomats to keep the peace in the galaxy.
Moreover, we’ll establish the Galactic Republic with several planets and systems and coexist with several alien species. But some of them wouldn’t like the Republic and some Jedi won’t agree with the Jedi Order which is why they’ll form an Empire and try and overthrow the Republic.
The story of this game follows a similar scenario and your character can stop or aid the destruction of the Galactic Republic. The Dark Side or Light Side of the Force depends on your choices in the game which makes it a pretty good video game.
Asteroid mining is something that’s just an idea that’s currently under development. Dead Space takes such an idea and takes it to another level. That’s because an entire mining facility has gone silent and your job as Isaac Clarke is to find out what happened. The ship was overrun by an unknown alien race because some of the people on it took an ancient relic. In other words, Dead Space can show us a worst-case scenario when looking for new resources out in the universe. Luckily, you’ll make it out alive in the game and get to bring the artifact home. Humanity might have to face an alien race and it won’t really stand a chance if the race is as persistent as the one in this game. But the universe must be explored.
Technology and humans go hand in hand so why wouldn’t they go as one? In the bleak future of Observer, it’s impossible to find a job without cybernetic implants. You’ll play as an Observer, a detective looking for his son. As an Observer you can jack into the minds of the living, and dead people to find out more about them. But their minds will hide terrible things. And once you find out the truth about your son, you’ll be facing a possible answer to the link between technology and human consciousness.
These are just a few sci-fi titles and they can serve as warnings when moving forward. But these are just glimpses, so there’s no telling as to what the future holds.
