Modern Warfare 2 and Six Days to Fallujah - how far is too far?

Dustin @ Ps3Center writes:
The majority of games published each year revolve around violence, with dozens of shooters hitting the market each month. However no one, outside of maybe Jack Thompson, has had a problem with it - until now. Has the recent acts of Call of Duty and Six Days to Fallujah taken it too far?

It's a game. You don't want to play it, then don't, but don't ruin it for the rest of us. GET OVER IT.

There's been tons of movies about 9/11, about the airplanes, about war. Why should games be treated so differently?

I think the main issue with this game is Fallujah had a lot of problems. Many casualties on the US side, and many war crimes and human rights abuses to the Iraqi civilians.

So GTA isnt too far?

people are hypocrites

PS: in defense of the Fallujha game. We can play in the vietnam war, WWI, and WWII, but not a six day shootout in the middle east?

once again, people are hypocrites

I think it also has to do with the game's success. For example, GTA was always a very popular franchise and the media has been after Rockstar for years. If this game ends up sucking (which I hope it doesn't), then no one will care.

As long as it´s rated proparly.

Well, a guy today on N4G reacted a certain way to another person's post. This person had written that we should compare these pics with real photos of a terrorist attack that happened in Iraq a week ago. Long story short, just because you like the way violence is portrayed in video games doesn't mean that you're a violent person or enjoy violence in real life. I like the blood and the realism because it makes for a more gripping and entertaining experience. But I don't want this kind of stuff happening in real life.

The articles says that "Movies and TV shows are filled with gun fights and blood spattering everywhere; the intense visual effects of explosions are non-stop in our entertainment lives." and nobody saying anything.
But when a game has that journalists start running their mouths.

Should've been "Modern Warfare 2 and Six Days to Fallujah - how retarded is too retarded?"

People need to chill the hell out. They're just games for Christ's sake! Why aren't people b!tching about GTA or something?
