    Terrorism is probably the most inhuman act that the current century has seen, and while I agree that it should be presented that way - if only to show the people how inhuman the perpetrators of those attacks are - to make the scene interactive, and involve the player in it... is just wrong.

    So yeah, you could say that in GTA and other games the player also takes part in the killing of innocents, but it is certainly not presented in the same way that it is presented in modern warfare 2 - in a very realistic way that has happened too many times around the world in the last 50 years.
    Because, you gotta have an underhanded way of accusing the CIA of blowing up all the countries of the world. I watched the leaked trailer day 1 it was out. I am glad I have this game preordered. This game will push boundries. And I haven't sat down and played a game and said "Ohhhhhhhhh ****...." since.. Postal. Or maybe Manhunt.

    Whats weird, even though they are all just polygons.. Why is so gross for me to watch?

    And for those that wish to see the slightly shocking video.

    And based on this video game alone I am now saying "CIA DID INDIA!!":p

    No, I think it was in poor taste to make it playable, but guess who is still going to buy it and play it? Me.

    Of course those are realistic possibilities! You're not one of those types who runs around unprepared for undead attack are you? Zombies represent one of the, if not the, greatest dangers to modern day society; we can't take them lightly. And Nazi zombies.....even worse! You must always be on the look out for zombies and Nazis and especially Nazi zombies and to a lesser extent zombie Nazis (though Nazi zombies are by far the worst of all).
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I see no reason to be upset with this. If you cannot or will not accept the fact that terrorists murder the innocent, you should refrain from playing the game.

    Because it's fun.

    It's just a video game dude. Ever play Counter-Strike? You get to be "terrorists" in that game, too. My favorite weapon is the AK-47! It kills those Counter-Terrorists real good!

    So, video games shouldn't reflect reality?
