IncGamers - Tamte: Six Days In Fallujah Will "Provide Deeper Context"

Wow, sensitive topic. Very very surprised on that comment.

it's no different to something like MoH

I think it's weak when a publisher pulls out due to unwanted feedback from the community.

Whether you like it or not, it is kind of controversial.

Anything that criticizes something heavily is always controversial :P

We'll have to wait and see how the game turns out...
But if gaming is going to "grow up" it'll have to tackle more sensitive subjects, just like serious films trancends the "entertainment" label.

Of course games track record isn't very good in this regard so, many will surely be doubtful it can even be done.

I applaud them for trying, and hope they don't make a mess of things. That could make it harder for anyone else trying the same thing...

falluja?
if they make a game based on what really happen in Falluja its ok bring it and show everybody what the military/fascist machine did there in the illegal iraq war

Sounds like they want Generation Kill the Video Game. Which wouldn't be a bad thing but I'm sure health regeneration/packs will turn it back around to a Video Game, like the Giant Enemy Crab.

I sense drama?

All the signs are good for this game so far, this just ads to it.

Such a thorny topic, not even sure where I stand in this myself. Too big a risk of trivialising an ongoing conflict, I suppose.
Fyzzu  +   1854d ago
Indeed. On the one hand, if it *can* provide context and a largely unbiased look, I'm all for it. If it's tainted, though...
UIOP  +   1854d ago
Exactly my thought.
I will be surprised if it really is unbiased.
AndyA  +   1854d ago
But the notion of making an entertainment product out of this is difficult for some people to get their head around.
thetamer  +   1854d ago
I think the marines have a right to tell their story, but I do think that translating that story to an audience that want to seek pleasure from pain is what the issue is here. I don't think it's trivialising though
Maticus  +   1854d ago
There are always issues like this with war games, it's finding the right balance I guess.
Leord  +   1854d ago
Wow, this is controversial, potentially.
Recka  +   1854d ago
Very touchy subject that one
Terrice  +   1854d ago
It's games like this that prove there are people out there that fail to see the positive aspect this could bring.

If this was a movie then I doubt it'd be this sensitive...

Interesting response by Tamte..
UIOP  +   1854d ago
I though this would be another war propaganda game.
FPS games often tends to be like that, as the most common goals of the genre simply are to kill as many as possible.

I think they are up to a challenge to change this. And I still have doubts about them doing a correct justice to the war for any side.

Was that pic shot intentionally?

Will the next game be base on lunching two bombs on Japan? How sick do you have to be to make a game about the slaughter of a city, do they have the rape stories in this game.
