SHALL WE PLAY A GAME?

Posted in fun by anaumov on 27.08.2010

War Games is one of my favorite movies. I like more movies from 80th as what produce today. There are a absolutely other atmosphere. For example, in WarGames a film starred is just man, not superman as in today’s movies; his girlfriend is just cute, she looks not like Pamela Anderson (if you understand what I’m talking about).

The film follows David Lightman (Broderick), a young hacker who unwittingly accesses WOPR, a United States military supercomputer programmed to predict possible outcomes of nuclear war. He starts a game of Global Thermonuclear War, playing as the Soviet Union. The computer starts a simulation that briefly convinces the human military attendants that actual Soviet nuclear missiles are inbound. While they defuse the situation, WOPR nonetheless continues the simulation to trigger the scenario and win the game. It continuously feeds false data such as Soviet bomber incursions and submarines deployments to the humans at NORAD, pushing them into raising the DEFCON level and toward a retaliation that will start World War III.

I think it can be interesting for all computers geeks in every country. Russian hackers refer this movie as to… like “classic” and “must to watch”. You can find it, for example, here.
