Is the evolutionary value of video games to prep the next generation for Armageddon?
Science fiction has inspired many new devices. Star Trek for example has inspired new technologies such as the 3d printer. The evolution of video games has had much the same effect in terms of what can be done. Hopefully, this evolution helps to bring humans to another planet at some point. Stars die, and eventually so will ours. If we don't make it off the planet it will indeed be Armageddon. It's not a matter of if, but when.
Instead of humans warring with each other, we should be working together to come up with solutions to get off the planet. We're ALL doomed if we don't. It doesn't help that we expedite the process through resource binging (cough, oil). Perhaps we'll kill the planet before the sun goes supernova anyway.
I digress. Video games are art that likely has and will continue to be an inspiration for new technologies. Hopefully that technology helps us in the long run.
