When Video Games Get A Little Too Real

Illustration for article titled When Video Games Get A Little Too Real

TerrBear was minding his own business playing some Watch Dogs 2 when the action inside the house started looking a little too much like the action outside the house.

This is the only time it’s OK to film your screen with your phone.

Note that the whole game isn’t this accurate; as with any other open world title, cuts have to be made, resulting in a Bay Area that’s more caricature than 1:1 replica. But still. In this case the similarities are pretty amazing.


UPDATE: This post originally attributed the footage to AndresMoreno1. That gif was actually lifted from TerrBear’s original video, now posted above.
