The mainstream media has a nasty habit of seeking controversy from videogames. But then, developers have a nasty habit of handing them ammunition on a silver platter. Case in point: Medal of Honor's inclusion of playable Taliban characters in its upcoming reboot; a design choice that certainly fits within the context with the game, but has otherwise (and unsurprisingly) made Danger Close the target of some fairly harsh criticisms.
"I don't understand why it came when it did but it came and it hurt. It was a morale hit and everything," said executive producer Greg Goderich in an interview with CVG. "Our intentions have never been anything but honorable and this Medal of Honor game is no different than any Medal of Honor game that has come before it, in that regard, in our intent and our tone."
