Inspiration: Popular Video Games

15. 08. 2016

Maybe you’re a die-hard video gamer, or maybe you’d like to pretend you know what your friends are talking about when they start raving about their favourite game. Either way, we are here to help give you some insight about three popular game series: Fallout, Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed.

Fallout

The Fallout series is a role-playing game with a storyline set in the future that’s inspired by post-WWI America and the nuclear paranoia during that time. The first Fallout game was created in 1997 and has since had four more official games in the main series with additional spin-off games.

Did you know? Did you know the winking vault boy  with a thumbs up links back to a safety practice in the 1950s. Students were taught drills to duck and cover under a desk in case of an atomic bomb explosion. A commonly taught safety trick was to extend one’s arm towards the explosion with a thumbs up. If the explosion was smaller than your thumb, then you were in a “safe” distance from the explosion.

Call of Duty

This first-person shooter game was first released in 2003 and has since sold over 175 million copies as of 2015. There are also various products as a part of its franchise. The earlier games were set in during WWII, then it moved to modern time, the Cold War setting and even a future setting.

Did you know? Australian Okan Kaya once held the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest marathon gaming session where he played 135 hours and 50 minutes of COD in 2012! He has since been beat in 2015 by Carrie Swidecki for playing Just Dance 2015 for 138 hours.

MORE CALL OF DUTY INSPIRATION…

Assassins Creed

This action-adventure game is based on the real world events in a fictional history setting with the feud between the Assassins that fight for free will and peace and the Templars, who fight for peace through control. Each game tells two intertwining stories through various time periods. One story follows an Assassins and their adventure in the past, while the other is a person in the present who experiences the Assassin’s history through a device known as Animus, or Helix.

Did you know? The Animus Machine used throughout the game allows the user to read his or her genetic memory and project it on an external screen. It’s inspired by the philosopher Car Jung’s Collective Unconscious Theory, which is the idea that certain thoughts or patterns can be shared between unconscious minds.
