We'll still be trying to figure out how to stop oil from spewing in a gulf and figuring out how to sell electric cars. 2027 will look no different than 2010 beyond a little bit higher resolution TV's on the market and some slicker new cars. We'll still have yet to cure cancer and the Japanese will still be building robots that no one can afford or care about.
There will be no Halo hover jets. There will be no dudes with superhuman bionic arms. There will definitely be no useful and powerful battle robots.
"The riots continue in the streets of Detroit."
Dude, Detroit won't even have enough people to riot let alone make the news. That place will be a low tech ghost town. Not some high tech rioting metropolis.
"Corporations have more power than the government."
Well, they got that one right. Beyond that, this is a pretty silly envisioning of 2027. I'd believe it more if they just said 2127
Well thankfully it isn't a documentary.
I know all video games revolve around strictly plausable and realistic scenarios, and to imagine a different time, location, or reality is laughable.
