Call of Duty Black Ops 3: Science is Scary

My Thoughts:

It is an unfortunate reality that a lot of science fiction hates science. From “Frankenstein” to “Transcendence”, the main moral of too much science fiction is that “man should not play god” or some other such retrograde crap like that. For Call of Duty, a franchise primarily marketed to back wards thinking people, to jump on that wouldn’t too much of a surprise if not for one thing: “Advanced Warfare”. Even thought it wasn’t enough to make me want to buy the game, the use of so much sci-fi imagery, like exosuits and laser rifles, was the first time i was interested in the franchise since it movie the action from World War Two to the Modern Day. So for that to be released just a few months ago, and the next installment to be a big “all that kind of stuff is scary and evil” is just…odd. I mean, i didn’t have high expectations before, and this really doesn’t lower them any (again, this kind of pandering to sheer stupidity is just giving the main audience what it wants) but it’s an odd choice.  I honestly can’t even think of another way too put it. I mean, who’s idea was this? Who decided to take the franchise into the future only to go back and say “never mind, that place is scary”?
