A world map of video game villains, compiled from first-person shooter (FPS) titles released since the year 2000. The Cold War is so 20th Century—today’s games are populated by bad guys from all around the world.
I have no idea how the titles were chosen or if they’re representative of FPS games in general, but what’s up with the map? Did China resurrect Genghis Khan (who’s a Mongol, but anyway) and conquer Central Asia all over again? While we’re at it, it appears that Colombia has invaded Peru and India has taken over a chunk of Pakistan. Man, this could be the start of World War III right here.
