Is the world ready for a realistic videogame of the Battle of Fallujah? Ready or not, it's coming next year for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
I feel it is important that games like this are made, so long as they are done well, in such a way that it offers incite into the topic at hand, rather than just becoming another meaningless throwaway experience.
... if it offers insight or not. If it's a good/great game, I'll check it out, and if it's mediocre or bad, I won't. Simple as that. I don't feel a game about this war is 'offensive' or disrespectful: I feel the war in it self is extremely offensive and disrespectful! It's an illegal war based on lies, and it has caused about a million deaths and immeasurable wounded and damage! Bush and his cronies should be dragged before a war crimes tribunal and charged. I don't really understand why people are upset about a game like this. Because it's still 'fresh'!? Because it might be 'too realistic'!? It's time to accept games as a mature medium, so if you can make movies about Faluja, and write books about Fallujah, what is so wrong about making a realistic game about Fallujah!? You want to get upset about something!? Be upset about the actual war! Not about developers using that war as a background to create something interesting.
but then again ireland is neutral from wars so i wudnt understand how americans wud feel about this as they have losts 1000's in the iraqi war.
What do you mean by realistic? Like ARMA? Like Operation Flashpoint? Developers stop using Realistic and Simulation words unless you really mean it!
To make such a game unless it help Iraqs broken Economy. Since no matter how much the publishers will try to avoid conflicts or condemnation of any country or person it will come and also in the time when Iraqi people are fighting with economic crisis they see no good here. Better they should have imagine something new and creative rather than milking the cash cow.
I wouldn't really say games about the Iraq War are milking a cash cow. Now if this were about WW2...
