With the launch of the latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 trailer comes controversy as The Christian Science Monitor questions whether the trailer's depiction of a bombed-out White House goes too far (via GamePolitics).
The site mentions that this is the first time "such striking imagery has surfaced since 9/11," but as we all know, that's simply untrue. Fallout 3 is the obvious example that comes to mind, but another, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, depicted the exact same scenario in its campaign. Namely, American troops storming the occupied White House. The posting also cites Grand Theft Auto IV as a back-handed example of games that go too far.
To me American people need to STFU (for those who are complaining)! Why?
We need to get over it and move on. Its like saying Is Capcom going to far shooting black people in Res. Evil 5? It is just a game people. Oh BTW I am from the U.S. and for those who lost loved ones and have been offended than forgive and don't buy this game. Simple as that.
In reguards to the article, it sounds to me they are complaining just because it's America. What if it was some other country or symbol, would you not complain? I myself am an American and Christian and I find it offensive when a group seems to suggest by there words that they only care about the fact that the white house was blown up and wouldn't necessarily cause a fuss if it were say pakistan. It's just hypocritical of you and shows your ignorance.
Fallout 3 had a whole destroyed washington DC with war in it. how is this any worse?
