Can video games predict the future?

That’s right, put away the Crystal ball and dark magic, as apparently there is an easier way to predict the future. It looks like all you need is a FIFA game to predict actual football game outcomes as proven in EA’s FIFA simulation, which last month correctly predicted the winner of the 2014 World Cup. Yes that right, Germany were to be the winners of the world cup according to the simulation and if you don’t believe us, check this article out that was published on the 5th of June.

They didn’t get the score exactly right and the simulation said that Brazil would be in the final. Although no one could of predicted the 6 point loss that Brazil took in the semi final, so that aside it’s still very impressive. Perhaps this will be a trend in predicting future game outcomes in the future? What do you guys think?
