I hope the title is not too confusing, if so feel free to propose a better one.
For a game to qualify for this list the only prerequisite is a concrete reference to a specific date in the future (relatively to the game's release date), but this date to be in the past now. Example: a game released in 1990 and its story takes place in 2000. It can be in the intro, appearing as the game's story unrolls, in the manual... anything goes as long as it's documented.
This is apparently a thing among movies fans and I thought to create a thread for games since I have a few in mind that I'll be gradually adding and, well, I find a certain charm in these references. Other than that, it's of course completely pointless.
