OMAC 3: video game wars

OMAC 3 was released in 1975 (dated 1974), when the hottest game around was Pong. But Kirby foresaw totally immersive first person 3D shooters.

He also foresaw that for a massively more advanced army, war is almost like a game: OMAC faced no serious opposition. This is like modern drone warfare against less advanced nations, where drones are controlled from a distance, as if in a video game.

It's happening now.
