Gamepro: Is Call of Juarez: The Cartel Appropriate?

With people dying every day in this Mexican border town, will Ubisoft's game shed light on the city's problems or exploit them?

The story is too old to be commented.

No more appropriate than Mafia, or any game that involves gangs.

Is Pokemon appropriate when we have Animal cruelty going on in the world and rocks battling plants? Is Mario appropriate when there are so many people get high on shroom? What about Call of Duty? Is it appropriate to create a game just to have more 13 year old boys calling me a faggot online?

Goddamnit I'm too tired. Now I can't think of a good follow up. In all seriousness, It's just a game. Movies always go through this shit, but at the end of the day what can you do? If the game gets or doesn't get released, things are still happening. If anything shit will shed some light on what's happening, even if most of it is just fictional. The media just has to stop overreaction to these game.

If the governments of the world really wanted to eliminate these cartels they could without too much trouble the more advanced militaries, would it be legal hell no and it would probably cost alot of lives, well civilian and some military.

With the lvl of accuracy of modern gps bombs, i am kinda surprised we haven't seen military actions like those in clear and present danger.

Or the less bloody way, attack(not literally) the banks and financial institutions that filter and/or hold all these drug cartels money, and hit them where it will hurt the most the wallet. Not legal and probably alot more of a logistical and data sifting nightmare, scratch that computers would do most of the sifting.

Gaming will never mature like some want if they let every little thing hold them back, gaming needs to break down these controversial barriers before it can advance but with America and Americans the way they are today, I doubt we'll ever see that day. Ah well.
