When Will Video Games Treat Real Wars With Maturity?

There will be a time when the unspoken majority can identify the complexity of playing as the Taliban or a Nazi soldier with understanding. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Culture, Medal of Honor, PC, PS3, Six Days in Fallujah, Wii, Xbox 360)

Seven Days in Fallujah - Idiots in the media ruined the experience
MoH Tier One - Made to pay respects to real heroes, but again idiot media ruined the experience

There will never be a mature representation of war in video games, because video games are about having fun.

The moment you cross over from being a run-n-gun shooter that takes place in quasi-WW2 France, and engage in a thoughtful exploration of the sociological and historical causes and reasons for the war, it suddenly becomes entirely offensive to be reenacting the war in the first place.

Not that it isn't anyway...
