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.

Cogo2279d ago

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

Anything that criticizes something heavily is always controversial :P

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...

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.

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

AndyA2279d ago

Such a thorny topic, not even sure where I stand in this myself. Too big a risk of trivialising an ongoing conflict, I suppose.

Fyzzu2279d 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...

UIOP2279d ago

Exactly my thought.
I will be surprised if it really is unbiased.

AndyA2279d ago

But the notion of making an entertainment product out of this is difficult for some people to get their head around.

thetamer2279d 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

Maticus2279d ago

There are always issues like this with war games, it's finding the right balance I guess.
