Reminds me of how Deus Ex predicted 9/11, too.

From the Deus Ex Wiki

"Whenever the New York City skyline is visible in the background, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center are conspicuously absent. This was due to texture memory limitations that arose during the game's development, but the in-universe explanation for the missing towers is that they were destroyed in a terrorist attack. A year after the game's initial release, the real Twin Towers were destroyed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks."

This game came out in 2000.

Aw shit, somebody call jack thompsan! Video games made the terrorists do 9/11!

Not that crazy of an idea the world trade centre had a bombing in 93' that if it had performed as hoped would have taken out both towers.

Really the towers were always a symbol of American success and hegemony and and probably the most distinctive towers in the NYC skyline at the time. Seeing as a major theme of deus ex was terrorism its not that far out there really.

I mean, picking the day 911 probably was the logic behind the choice of both dates.

Agreed, and nine-one-one-two-thousand-one has pleasing meter and rhyme (also I think part of why it was called 2001 Space Odyssey).

Surprised this doesn't pop up on r/conspiracy every now and then. They got other movie stuff they point to as clues that the deep state is messing with everyone.

Not really a coincidence but attention to details. The issue date is on 12/sep/91 and so the expiration would be 10 years after hence 11/sep/01.
