Outrage as new video game lets players kill civilians in terror attacks

A new computer game which is expected to smash sales records allows players to plot terror attacks against civilians.

Critics have accused creators Activision for being irresponsible with Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which goes on sale on Tuesday.

Keith Vaz, Labour MP for Leicester East, said: 'I am absolutely shocked by the level of violence in this game and am particularly concerned about how realistic the game itself looks.'

Realistic? MW2? It's a good shooter but it isn't like GT5 is to car racing now is it? Noone would mistake it for worrying footage on the news and it's daft that Vaz and his amazingly over sensitive self should feel the need to lie to support an already feeble case based on a part of the game that you're both warbed over AND(IIRC-or if I'm told correbtly)you don't HAVE to even play. I'm no expert on such things so IDK if people actually do kill civvies when undercover like in the game but I can't think IW(however stupid they've been of late) would put the section in without some damn extensive research into the subject as though the controversy won't hurt sales they'll get rightly hauled over the coals if this is JUST wanton and uninvestigated.

The BIG thing is, however, films are much more real, the news is actually real and anyone, on the news, and anyone over 18 watching a film cab see much worse in much more vivid presentation. The PEGI number is there so you don't have to open your mostly ignorant trap Mr Vaz. IF the game was aimed at OR available to minors then OK, he'd have a point but it isn't and more specialised and experienced people than poor old Keith have already certified this game.

You're basically shooting the same four guys.

Oh my stars, what have we become? the shame.

Oh I see mr reporter....and what did you watch on tv the other night with your kids? Some woman getting raped tortured then killed? or was it the guy swearing his head off before getting shot in the face with his brains splattering all over the wall? or some pedophilia ring and multiple murder/suicide on the news?

COD6 will be the new scapegoat for all such terrible deeds by "do-gooder" losers like this.

Good times.
