UGO has posted an article on the most dangerous future years from a video game perspective. It starts in 2011 and continues through distopian futures and sci-fi epics until 2634, the year war is declared on the Kilrathi. That's an interesting reference point for their timeline, as there are quite a few explosive years in Wing Commander lore. What year would you have chosen as most dangerous?
The Most Dangerous Future Years In Games
As the New Year begins, let's look forward to what might happen, using video games as our crystal ball. Hint: lots of robots, explosions, and cutscenes.
And here we are in 2634. Beyond this point, things get too vague to be relevant - in 623 years, do we really think the human race will resemble us at all? Not bloody likely. I'd bet it's going to be like Wall-E but a thousand times worse. We'll basically be Slurpees with bluetooth.
The Wing Commander series posits a much more romantic future - at least we're still walking on two legs. But space is still full of jerks, and in 2634 we declare war on the Kilrathi, a race of two-legged cat people who won't leave us alone. This kicks off a cavalcade of disaster that leaves hundreds of thousands dead.
