    Really? North America invaded? Not invading? Truly, games are rather crazy these days.

    I'm from Texas and let me tell you that while there really is no shortage of those stupid ass secession stickers, they're a vocal minority like anywhere else. It annoys me to no end. They don't seem to realize that they can't actually do that, at least not legally. I'd go so far as to say the vast majority of people who yell all that secession BS are all bark and no bite, Texas isn't some land of the badasses that it likes to think it is. They sit around with a few friends and agree that they should secede, and all of a sudden they think that they have the support they need. I just read that 2 years ago there were over a 100k signatures in Texas for secession, but I think someone forgot to tell them that the city of Houston alone had a population of about 2.2 million. And a lot of us don't feel like dealing with martial law because some loud mouthed idiots feel like their lives will improve 100-fold immediately following a secession. Also there's this irony. A common thing you'll hear is that they're tired of the government trampling on the constitution and that they want to secede if they can't have the constitution be enforced. MEANWHILE the constitution has no provision for states leaving the union. I apologize for bringing this stuff onto a page about games though, I got into a rant. I actually didn't even know about the Mexican invasion thing in Deus Ex, I guess I wasn't paying a lot of attention to all the backstory and lore. Great article, I liked it.

    You bunch of racists! You didn't even include any non-Humans?!? That's a borderline war-provoking crime of the species! Anyways........ yeah, non-Humans have done it before too. Best example is the Chimera from the Resistance series, who also invaded the rest of the world. And won.

    Honestly, I see the US falling and splintering under another civil war far sooner than a foreign invader, but that's for time to tell. Good article, Ashley!

    America is the only Superpower left standing today and so far we are still standing despite being invaded so many times.

    I'm sorry to point out but there HAS been a successful invasion of the mainland United States, the British Empire invaded after the United States tried an annex Canada in the War of 1812, D.C was sacked, Detroit surrendered without firing a shot, however any captured territory was handed back to the United States at the end of the war to set a good example in Europe as many nations wanted to break up France after Napoleon was defeated

    It had more to do with the fact that, despite some territorial gains and some military successes, the British were forced into a stalemate with the United States. Neither side had won enough of a decisive victory to force the other nation into anything but a peace treaty upholding the status quo. And the war wasn't popular back in Britain, and like most wars, it was expensive. And given all of the business with Napoleon, the British weren't about to start putting themselves into more debt for no good reason by continuing a war across an ocean that had turned into a stalemate. Keep in mind that the British weren't aiming for taking territory for themselves, but one of their goals was to force the Americans to give up territory for an independent Native American state.

    Seriously? No Homefront? What nonsense is this?
  • GR_AshleyReed - June 20, 2014 1:08 a.m.

    Well, Homefront is mentioned in the opening slide. The rest of the article's all gravy, really.
