Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s campign to have real-world connections

It’s been officially revealed that the campaign of Medal of Honor: Warfighter will feature scenarios tied very closely to real terrorism threats. “the action focuses on hotspots often overlooked by the media, in places like the Philippines, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen and more.”

The story is too old to be commented.

Real world connections are dangerous. 7 days in Fallujah tried and never saw the light of day. Let's see how MOH handles the pressure.

It frightens me that young gamers are getting their world history education through video games like these.

I wonder if you'll be able to airstrike civilians in this game like the US does on a daily basis to get the "But I swear, bad dudes where there..." Trophy.

I got As on my history tests because of WW2 games like medal of honor and call of duty. If I hadnt played those games I woukdnt be nearly as interested in history as I am now. War games can be used as educational media, especially back in the ps2 days where the WW2 games were backed by real facts and tidbits.

As a history major and future teacher, I agree to a point. There are issues within movies and games where history is scewed for entertainment and gives the masses false information that persist (looking at you "the patriot" or "pearl harbor") Yet, these medias can also be very helpful. In an age when people don't care about history, view it just as history, black and white, old, no tie to the modern world....creating something that can be entertaining and fun (band of brothers) can help with the relevance of that history.

I see games as the next step in education - if treated the right way (otherwise it'll just be cheap entertainment or nefarious political propaganda). Look at Assassin's Creed, RPGs or even the Total War series not at their fantasy stories but at their makers' attention to detail in the game world. I do find it much more interesting to explore in those worlds instead of reading them in some old textbooks.

Speaking of books, there are countless books and lores in RPGs. Total War Shogun 2 has an encyclopedia which is full of game related stuff like stats and build requirement (that are not historically accurate).

Now, add Wikipedia links in those tomes, lores and encyclopedia....

I have no interest in this game. I tried the last one and returned it as soon as I beat it. Even the name is lame: "Warfighter"

Dunno why you think that, but the single player was one of the best in recent modern fps....comes real close to cod4 in terms of SP.
