Thanks, Dave Mull!

My favourite part of the in-article video was footage of an "Infinity Ward Beta Testing Center".

Now that's just wishful thinking!

Really interesting stuff.

Ya but I felt that this was one big advertisement for Killzone. Not that it a bad thing but it like use some other examples. There are other games out there like Medal of honor that is more realistic.

But he said several times that Medal of Honor had more inaccuracies than Killzone.
LouisGarcia  +   949d ago
Yeah, I wrote a piece like this after my friend was shot in Afghanistan, and Medal of Honor was something we talked a lot about. He had some really great insights about shooters and other genres representing war, and how it helped his PTSD.
Lifeequals42  +   949d ago
Yeah, the MoH reboot took great pains to honor the troops, and at least in a narrative sense, seemed a lot more realistic than CoD. Then again, MoH was based on Operation Anaconda of the Afghanistan war while CoD takes its cue from Hollywood action flicks.
