I can sum it up for you, in the new Medal of Honer you can play as a Taliban on multiplayer and apparently there's quite a bit of controversy over the matter. so what do you guys think? is it a big deal? or are people just ****ing stupid?

honestly, almost all other games are the same way...most of the World War 2 based Call of Duty's you would be Axis and be against other players who were allies, its no different then if someone in another country were to play a game where we are their enemy.

Oh so as soon as the Taliban are involved it's bad but the ''No Russian'' level in COD is fine?

You can be the Taliban (or at least, a group heavily based on the Taliban) on COD, but it's just called OpFor.

It's multiplayer, of course its gonna need two factions. In the the past it has been the Nazis and Japanese ,etc so what different now? Honestly though it's just American media cashing in our current conflict (how sick are they?) I hope when our generation is of age we can rid ourselves of the current middle eastern xenophobia forced upon us by the media.

People complain about anything nowadays. We've had 20 years of killing video-game Russians and Germans, why is this so different?
#11
Yes, because we're clearly all going to become terrorist

It's not honerable to judge people like that.

I don't think the world is up in arms about it, just a few news stations. It makes for interesting articles.

You can play as the Taliban on Modern Warfare 2.

Because the Taliban are terrorists through Islam, and you know how Islam seems to be the root of all evil, so by playing as an Islamic terrorist, the entire world will become Taliban.

-.-!

I'm actually split on this one, but I do think that because the game is being released whilst people are still being killed in Afghanistan, then it is of bad taste to release such a game. I think it is much different if the war is over than if fighting is still continuing with further deaths all the time.

Does anyone honestly give a **** about video games? I'd think they should be more concerned with the REAL Taliban.

in Day Of Defeat, we play as straight up Nazis, preventing the US from capturing the beach


really though, I don't see what the problem is. There needs to be a WWII game where the campaign mode is controlling the Axis. The game would be so sad because you would LOSE.

So? Can't be as bad as going for a shoot up at the local airport like in MW2.

Come to think of it, it can't nearly be as bad as half the things I do on GTA, and they weren't even part of the plot.

How's this any different than the countless games where you have to kill Russians, or Germans?

I can't wait to play this.

Because the Russians/Germans are perceived as being the 'bad guys', as if such a thing even exists, so it's perfectly fine to kill them by the hundreds. That seems to be the opinion anyway.

All language should make a appropriate grammatical sense, regardless of the fact it is only in use by a specific community or in a particular area.

Sure man, the bush administration spent a trillion dollars trying to get Americans to hate the Taliban, you wouldn't want some stupid game undermining that.
