3 Reasons Why A Nikola Tesla Video Game Would Kick Ass

Nikola Tesla is finally getting the attention he deserves via a new movie and museum. We think it's time to immortalize the man with a game. (Culture, Industry, Retro)

That article Is wrong about a few things. Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison created electricity. They also made electricity a mainstream product. Not Nikola.

They actually had electricity in ancient times so none of them invented it.
Reibooi  +   845d ago
Acutally that isn't exactly true.

While it's true that Franklin and Edison were pioneers in electricity power in it's current form can be attributed to Tesla and his creation of AC or altering current. Edison and his DC current was a very ineffective system for moving electricity over long distances and despite knowing this Edison still ran myriad smear campaigns against Tesla just to make money and not think about the greater good.

Edison even went as far as killing animals publicly used AC current to try to convince people that it was dangerous full well knowing that DC was just as bad.

If Edison and his ideas had prevailed over Tesla we would have 1000's more power plants everywhere just to be able to move the power around the way it needed to be moved for the infrastructure we have today.

Edison was a brilliant man for sure but he was also a greedy person who thought about money and fame first and the greater good 2nd and never liked anyone getting the 1up on him.

God deserves some level of credit for inventing electricity, I'm sure...

Also, you need to check up on your history (among other things judging from your average posts) before you go correcting information. Always double check.

@ Astrobrights

You must have heard about a battery that was found in what was ancient Sumeria. Its pretty interesting stuff. I don't think we know our actual history on this planet.

Maybe splitting hairs but just want to point out electricity was never invented, it was discovered and harnessed as an energy form.

He's already in Assassin's Creed, what more do you want!?! :p

Obviously they want Tesla to be the main focus of a game all his own. Was that not obvious from this article title even?

This guy created a weapon to control the weather and he spoke with the dead :) one of the greatest men to ever live.

Amen to that

Nikola Tesla was right. History will show who truly prevails. If his ideas were not held back by money, we would've had free clean electricity and the internet a century before it arrived. We probably wouldn't have energy issues today if greed hadn't come into play.

Tesla should be a Pokemon.
Deadpool616  +   845d ago
If Tesla wasn't held back, we would probably have a real life Pokeball or Capsule Corp Capsules by now. The idea of those inventions aren't impossible, they're only improbable until someone finds a way.

Did everyone forget he was in Dark Void?
AlexGalbraith  +   843d ago
I don't think anyone forgot. But William Grey was the main character of Dark Void. I'm talking about a game where Tesla is the focus.
amaguli  +   843d ago
OK, I miss understood then. I thought you meant any game with Tesla in it. I do agree that Tesla was a bit of a bad ass back in his day. It would be interesting seeing a game focusing on him.
