We live in a unique moment in history – that sweet spot when video games are so realistic and reality is so ridiculous that it’s hard for paid professionals to tell the difference between the two. 

In an effort to better explain the intricacies of an upcoming SpaceX mission, CBC News helpfully provided a computer simulation of a rocket landing, which was actually footage from a cartoony video game called Kerbal Space Program that they ripped from YouTube. The game’s physics are considered impressive, but somehow we doubt astronauts would trust equations calculated by off-brand Minions.

Not to be outdone, Russia Today aired a report on child soldiers in South Sudan that, instead of featuring an actual photo, used a screenshot from Metal Gear Solid V. You know, as if the internet wouldn’t remember a game that sold well over six million copies.

But hey, at least these stations nailed the timeframe within a couple hundred years … unlike Danish television program TV2, which illustrated a report on modern-day Syria with a screenshot of 12th-century Damascus from Assassin’s Creed. To be fair, the Assassin’s Creed games are how we learned about Ben Franklin being a horndog, so it’s not like they’re entirely devoid of historical value.
