The laws of war: a positive step for realism in gaming

The International Committee of the Red Cross suggests that the real-world rules of war be incorporated into war-inspired videogames like Call of Duty. MWEB GameZone writer, Stephanie Duchenne, feels that this may have positive consequences beyond solely enhancing the immersive gaming experience. (Culture)

Great read. I fully agree with the Red Cross, incorporating heavier consequences in video games, especially military shooter will add weight and immersion to the game.

I agree to an extent, but it must not be forced on devs

I do see a shift in thinking by developers to provoke thought and understanding of consequences from gamers. Of course a lot more should be done if a more dynamic result is obtained, but right now failing you on a level if you kill a group of bystanders is as good as it gets, imho

Sure it sounds great and all, but I'll bet it would be turned down or around due to potentially hurting sales of popular games. Spec Ops: The Line seems to do a good job on highlighting the stupidity of what we currently understand as popular shooters, but if Activision and friends don't push this, it'll never gain support

Again, it's cool if it's added where it makes sense, just like anything else. But it doesn't need to be forced into games just to be there.
