The situation that Vice President Daniels faced (possibly going to war with Russia) and the overall outcome, shares similarities in plot line with the 2004 Konami video game, "Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater." In both scenarios, America and Russia are at odds over Russian personnel and technology. The Russian President is negotiating with a newly appointed Former Vice-President and the issue is resolved by the actions of a lone operative who is forced to take down a parental figure. Ironically enough, the character from the video game (Codenamed "Big Boss), is the main character in the 2014 Konami release "Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes and is voiced by none other than Kiefer Sutherland.
