#5- Turn off the lights (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2)
Yeah, sure, maybe some of the story was over the top. Yeah, sure, maybe the “No Russian” level was more controversial. But not only does a nuclear detonation knock out all the power in DC (and who knows where else), but you get to see it happen from the space station! Visually it was presented fabulously and flawlessly, but it was something that’s often been something seen as a very possible and imminent threat, the consequences of which were usually presented in the abstract. In the middle of a last stand gunfight that’s sure to find you overrun, the saving grace is that the world goes completely dark. Holy $#!^.
