    But it's not real.

    True, just like GTA is not real when you run over random people with your car.

    But the difference is that in modern warfare, the scenes are based on real possibilities, and are created with a lot of drama and shock in them.
    This scene is pretty mental.

    You can run over random people with your car just as easily as you could join a terrorist organization and go shoot up a mall.

    So are Wolfenstein and Left 4 Dead, but we happily engage in those.

    Wolfenstein was no more shocking than a James Bond movie.
    Haven't played left 4 dead, don't like zombies much.

    World at war is about a real historic plot, while modern warfare is about possible plots in present time.
    The style of the two games is completely different, and the only thing that might be similar is the used engine and the HUD system.
    Well I also admit that I played World at War first then tried CoD4.

    If you ever play Splinter Cell, it's has elements of real possible scenarios as well, where Black Ops kill indiscriminately, whether civilian or foe, to accomplish the main objective.

    I guess that's why it an M game.

    Aww...no I was trying to say that Wolfenstein and Left 4 Dead are based on real possibilities.

    And no one likes zombies, you're not supposed to like them. You're supposed to kill them. That's why realistic training games like Left 4 Dead should be encouraged amongst the general populace.

    I take it that you're speaking about double agent, where you could side with the terror organization and bomb the tourists' yacht and stuff like that.
    Yeah, that's a comparable situation, but again - in modern warfare they make it way more shocking.
    I still remember how shocked I was from the nuclear aftermath scene in modern warfare 1, when you can't do nothing about it and you just die there together with your entire unit for the first half of the game.

    I believe I read in the game a nuke is set off in Washington DC as well and you and your squad fight, along with the rest of the military to keep control.Games are exaggeration of reality and war games take those exaggerations to apocalyptic levels.

    If you don't like it then don't buy it. Personally, I look forward to the game. It's no different then an interactive movie. The terrorists are always defeated in the end.
