Does Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 predict the future?

A recent article in the Guardian by Keith Stuart titled “Does Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 predict the terrifying future of warfare? is well worth a read. It doesn’t matter if you’re not a player of combat games, because this isn’t about games but about how the future of warfare is looksingincreasingly like scenes from The Terminator. The article even points to a Japanese company called Cyberdyne, that has created a “Robot Suit HAL® for the benefits of humankind in the field of medicine, caregiving, welfare, labor, heavy works, entertainment and so on.” However, the military are developing similar systems to support troops. You’ve been warned!
