Default Videogame guns can be made up!!!

Usually I just ignore the video game section of IMFDB like a red headed stepchild, but I am tired of people claiming a gun in a video game as so and so real-life gun. When you go and look at the video game gun in question multiple cases it bares a superficial resemblance to the alleged real life gun if that. It makes a mockery of IMFDB and hurts it's credibility in my opinion.

examples:

This entire page!
http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Deus_Ex:_Human_Revolution

http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Fallout_3#10mm_SMG

There are some exceptions on this page but for the most part, they are made up.
http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Perfect_Dark

These aren't the only ones, I could go on and on

It just seems that a lot of people who make these video game IMFDB pages can't get it through their head that the video game designers are able to just make up a gun and draw it on the computer. No, they think that it HAS to be a real gun.
They look at the fake video game gun and instead of realizing it is a make believe gun they look for the real life gun that it looks most like and declare that it is so and so gun.

rant over.
