When we were young Back to the Future Part II showed us a 2015 that had flying cars, self-tying shoes, and hoverboards. Based on the state of the world today, that possible future was ruined by a time traveling Biff Tannen, because we’re two years removed and none of those advancements are on the horizon. Video games have been giving us the same kind of lies for decades, showing a not-too-distant future that never delivers.
These 10 releases all pushed forward the clock to a year where advanced technologies seemed attainable, and now the games are comically anachronistic. Do you remember a massive California earthquake in 2007, or being able to teleport in 2010? No, but these games sure seemed to think events like those and many more would happen.
