The great legacy of the recent shooter Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare released in 2014 is a meme: press F to pay tribute. The widely ridiculed in-game prompt occurred in an early cutscene, in which the player participated in the funeral of a comrade in battle. Conan O’Brien Brainless player In 2014, five years later, we included it in the list of 69 biggest and strangest moments in PC games of the past decade.
