Agents of hades: A very different take on the monster hunting genre where in modern day the greek gods are real but are also just as horrible as they where in ancient myths, the PCs are normal people, taken and granted power by Hades in order to fight the threat that these other gods hold over all humanity.

Is it that close? I guess there's probably lots of room to play with the idea.

flying off the idea that hades is the most responsible of the olympians, I suppose. This idea would involve a lot of custom monster making, I think.

That and besides some kidnapping attempts, hades is the least despicable of the gods compared to modern day ethics.

The Dome: In a small town out in the middle of nowhere a mysterious dome appears that blocks out any radio and wi fi signals from the outside. With no access to the outside world the societal structure of the town slowly begins to fade and the players are caught in the middle of it all...

So kind of like the Stephen King novel/TV series Under the Dome?

'The poor' are able to over throw the corrupt government (but incapable of replacing it quickly enough) when a pesky media virus addicts the middle and upper classes to foolish tech that is too expensive for 'the poor'.

now PC have to navigate a world where any tech device is likely to enslave them (think maddness check in Cthulhu) all the info of the world at the fingertips but a very strong reason not to use it.

The timeline would be like this with players introduced at any point:

-The virus starts slowly

-"The poor" Organize

-The virus ...goes viral
(does not infect analog devices- also this is nearly impossible to tell)

-"The Poor" successfully start the coup- national media coverage and streaming news enslaves most of the world

-"The poor" have everything they want- to heck with a real government the media-slaves are one step form zombies anyway

-"Other threat" tries to take over the 1st world by low tech

-Armageddon/Apocalypse

-post-Apocalypse analog only future

I actually stole that idea from a regular show episode... which admittedly might have been a parody of that book your talking about...

Entirely possible. It's been done several times. The book was published in 2009, but as I recall, it's a fleshed out version of a short story he wrote in the 70s.
