I've been involved in the game industry for awhile. I've actually been to EA's Vancouver, Redwood, and Orlando studios. These people work very hard on their products and when you go into each studio you see a big white board with competing games box art taped to the side, and notes of what each has.
I would assume after MW2 stepped up the bar with the shock of the airport scene and seeing America in shambles as you are fighting Russian forces they had to think of something that gave people mixed feelings or anger them. When you play MW2 and you see a quaint suburban town is totally destroyed by war it gets you ready to go and fight, I would assume this has the same effect. Hey at least it wasn't fox talking about Mass Effect being a porno lol.
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

It is a damn video game. People need to chill. When I play them I like to kill everything and anything, but outside the game I am not that violent.
I, for one, do everything that I see in video games.
One of you will end up here next!
I've personally asked Firaxis to delay the release of Civ V till Nov. I should get my new Comp up by late Oct. Until then, the anguish of a Civ Game being out that I could not play would be...
unbareable. I have also sacrificed several goats to the Demon God of Game Delay for this to occur as well.

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
And let's look at what I can do without being a Nazi:
Kill POWs in World at War
Blow up towns and enslave children in Fallout 3
Enslave the galaxy in Knights of the Old Republic
**** hookers and then launch an RPG into them in GTA
And who knows, those goombas probably had mothers.
The point of a video game is to escape from reality. You can do what you wish without any real moral or material consequences.
