This may be a bit of an old topic, but according to Wikipedia, the PC games Deus Ex, released in 2000, accurately predicted the destruction of the Twin Towers at the hands of terrorists. The image of the towers was apparently removed from the game due to texture limitations, but the idea of their destruction in the near future was still written into the games narrative.
I'm no conspiracy nut, but that's kind of amazing. People talk about these vague predictions made by the Bible and Nostradamus, when in fact a video game flat out stated what would happen the previous year. Unless... You don't think Al Qaeda was inspired by...? Anyway, I just thought it was interesting. I have yet to play the game, but it's received high praise, so I might check out Human Revolution when it comes out on the PS3.
