It's always good to see that the representation of Ireland and its people is becoming more and more accurate — even in futuristic sci-fi video games.

Overwatch is a massively popular video around the world which is set 60 years into the future of a fictionalised Earth, where humans are at war with robots. There are 26 playable characters in Overwatch and one of them is named Moira O'Deorain, who is a native of Dublin (according to her fictional biography).
