There are already flight simulators out there that you can purchase without the baggage, and again there seems to be no real purpose for it or market save for maybe islamists which again, probably are a small market for xbox games.

    Iíd say if youíre psyched for those I hope you arenít a game manufacturer. Youíre bound to cause them to go broke.

    On the other hand, putting a terrorist infiltration level into a game that is without question going to massively sell, with the story of it not that youíre literally a terrorist but that youíre trying to infiltrate said group to take them down, likely wonít affect sales all too much and has a bit of a point that is sellable, unlike the ones you described.



    Would I be cool with it?

    How do you mean? Cool as in want to buy it? Probably not, unless it was part of a over arching game that I really was looking forward to and it had some kind of logical and decent reason for having a section where you kill household pets or some other type of thing. If that was the entire point of the game, I probably wouldnít be ďcoolĒ with it in regards to wanting to buy it cause that sounds uninteresting and ****ty.

    If by ďcoolĒ with it you mean okay with it coming out? Definitely.

    See, Iím this crazy thing, its called a conservative. I believe in the free market. I believe in personal choice. I believe in personal responsabilities. I believe in parents actually parenting their kids. I believe that I can only be offended if I let myself be offended.

    If I donít like a game then I wonít buy it. Simple as that. If someone puts an extremely horrible thing that I greatly disagree with in the middle of a game I absolutely want, then Iíll have to weigh that issue and either buy it or not. What Iím not going to do is demand they remove it, or change their game, or god forbid that the game is banned. Thatís idiotic.

    I think the Postal Series has a ton of offensive things in it. I also think itís a ****ty game. Its one Iíd never buy. This is doubly the case after the horrendous movie that was made on it. I still have no problem if they want to make a sequal.

    GTA? Liesure Suit Larry? Mortal Kombat? I donít care. If it offends me, I wonít buy it, simple as that.

    Someone could make a game where a person must act out, while in the body of George Washington, every foul act uttered by Bob Saget during his Aristocrats joke while flying a plane into the WTC only to time travel back in time to bomb pearl harbor and then finally travel back in time once more to personally sodomize lincolns dead corpse. Fine, no problem. Make your game. Iím not going to protest it. Iím not going to demand its pulled from shelves. I donít care.

    Because if its really that offensive, if its really done in such poor taste, if its really so pointlessly low classÖ.it wonít sell.

    If it wonít sell it wonít be carried by stores

    If it wonít be carried by stores no major label is going to buy it

    If no major label signs it then thereís almost no budget for it

    If its not budget for it it probably ends up as some ****ty flash game sitting on some random website on the net that no one but a few idiots ever see.

    Ah, the wonders of the free market.
    Well played sir, well played.

    You don't play as a terrorist. You play as an undercover operative who works with the terrorist to gain their trust. This isn't the first game that's done that either.

    We need to Ban 24. Last season they had a good guy character having to do bad things to try and convince the terrorists he was really on his side to do the greater good. This is outrageous and horrible and we need to protest and demand that 24 is never aired again

    We also need to ban The Departed and Reservoir Dogs - they both had an undercover cop working with the mobsters while they killed civilians and other cops.

    Every show/movie/game/etc that involves any act of terrorism should be banned. They only give terrorists more ideas on how to attack us. I'm sure Al-Q came up with 9/11 after watching Executive Decision or Air Force One.

    But there's more, Activision confirmed this.

    Well there it is, I wonder how much "outrage" this is going to produce. There's a scene in Modern Warfare 2 where you play on the terrorists side and shoot up civilians apparently in a very bloody and realistic manner (though I wonder if it could be a realistic as Condemned....that game was creepy real). For me, it's not going to change my purchase. I thought Modern Warfare 1 was a great FPS and I look forward to 2 coming out. It has some cool multiplayer stuff. But I also don't see a big deal with this either. Australia is pissed off over it, but it's just a game. And it is a game centered around fighting terrorists, so whatever. I think any involvement by the government on this front would only be nanny state.
    Ya, I heartily believe that any government involvement in censoring this would add to the nanny state... HOWEVER, I hope parents have the smarts to not get a game with a mature rating for their kids... I mean seriously, I play games like this and others and always here like 10 years olds chatting in-game and it's like why are your parents letting you play this game?? Add in prozac or similar drugs and access to a gun and you have the making of the next school shooter.

    The big deal is more the factor that these things DO influence kids, who inspite of the warning many children will play this game... do you really want to decensitize children to scenes of millitary / terrorists gunning down civilians??

    It's not gonna change a thing though, I wish it would... stupid parent groups will DEMAND that the government do something about it, and they;ll just make the M on the box bigger so that parents will know that it's not for kids...

    Then there is the idea of 'predictive programming', where we will end up in a situation where we will see a massive shooting / terrorist attack... there's been 2 this past week.

    That's the parent's job, to be a parent. Ratings and reviews are easily attainable and the rating is right on the box itself.

    There's no correlation between violent video games and mass shootings. There is coincidence for sure, but no correlation. Lots of people play violent video games, lots of people don't run around shooting up the place. If someone is predisposition to be influenced by such things; it's the parent's job to identify this and to take appropriate actions for their family.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Re: Modern Warfare 2 Opens with Terror

    Well so far my play through this game is TITS. Although, I finding the pro nationalism, non stop arguement built into the games dialog explaning the situations more disturbing than the actual terror scene in the game. The loading quotes are great though. And one more thing. "WOLVERINES!!!!!"
