Press F to Pay Respects - have you seen your kids, younger colleagues or anyone in your sphere of influence using this. Kids today use it in various ways, including in times of grief, such as during the recent Jacksonville shooting tribute stream.
But do you know where it originated? Permit us to enlighten you. It goes back to 2014 when Activision released Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. In the game, you, the player, are a USMC Private Jack Mitchell, fighting off North Korean invaders / terrorist organizations trying to spread destruction. Towards the end of the first mission, Mitchell’s best friend, Private Will Irons, is killed.
After you complete the mission, you attend Irons’ funeral. Here the game prompts you to press a button to pay your respects to your fallen comrade. The F key is the chosen button in the game's PC version, so a “Press F to Pay Respects” notification appears on the screen.
