I want to keep people together (not blow them apart)

Critical Gamer's Luke K writes:

I enjoy killing just as much as the next maladjusted sociopath. I like turning my enemies to purée in id Software games; I get a cheap thrill from every headshot I nail in an online Battlefield match; I think nothing of calling in airstrikes on groups of people from Other Countries in Call of Duty. Here’s the thing though. Now and again, I stop playing videogames to dip into real life, and guess what? It turns out that sometimes – just sometimes – people are nice to one another. People help one another. In fact, it seems that some people go their whole lives without killing anybody. Imagine that! So I got to thinking: is the games industry aware of this?

I tried to think of games that respect and celebrate those who seek to save lives rather than take them.

I struggled. (3DS, Culture, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, Haze, Industry, iPhone, Night Trap, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360)
