no matter what they say, the symbolism stands. It might not be INTENDED as a political statement, but the nuking of a major world-power's capital is a little loaded.

Please keep your Politics out of my video games! Besides, is the whole world not supposed to be nuked in Fallout 3? That'd probably include the Houses of Parliament, the Kremlin and other government buildings. People need to realise that it's just a video game...Pity people let Politics get in the way of fiction and fun...Can't portray without controversy...
