This week, Russian Federation took to social media to announce it had "irrefutable evidence" that the United States is helping ISIS.
The game in question is none other than AC-130 Gunship Simulator for Android and iOS.
But the monitor Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT), along with a number of social media users, was quick to compare one of the images with an identical still from the wargame "AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron".
Russian Federation recently cited stills from a video game as proof that the US was working with ISIS before quickly receiving backlash and ridicule from those who recognized the images.
The original game footage, which was cropped in the ministry's post, included a red "FIRE" button in the bottom-right corner as well as a disclaimer in the top-right corner that read: "Development footage".
Hours later, the ministry published an updated statement with a different set of images, which it also said proved their claims.

Russian Federation alleges the USA is co-operating with so-called Islamic State by providing cover to fleeing IS militants.
In the posts - which have now been deleted - the Russian defense ministry claimed that the United States refused to engage ISIS convoys fleeing the city of Abu Kamal in Syria on November 9.
The ministry said US-led coalition planes instead tried to impede Russian Aerospace Forces operations in the area.
"However, the American side has failed to answer the question asked by the Russian side: why the ISIS terrorists left Syria on combat vehicles with heavy armament were regrouping in the coalition-controlled territories and preparing for new attacks [.]", said the statement.
"The defense ministry is looking into a civilian employee of one of the departments who attached photos to the defense ministry's statement by mistake", a new statement was quoted by Russian agencies as saying.
U.S. military spokesman Colonel Ryan Dillon called the Russian statements a "barrage of lies", saying they were "as accurate as their air campaign".
