Here, let me just quote this for you:
"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 An immersive first-person perspective ups the realism of this shooter, which contains a controversial (but optional) level where you go undercover as an enemy terrorist.
Alternative: Battlefield: Bad Company"
You see that last line? Battlefield: Bad Company in all its magenta glory?
What the hell man? Is this because of the airport scene? Did no one play through Bad Company to get to the point where you are fighting American soldiers to get at fuggin' gold?
Sure, MW2 is more violent than Bad Company, but it's like comparing getting shot in the face with getting shot in the stomach--you're still getting shot and they'll both kill you.
And what lesson would you want your kid to take away with either game? On a full play through in MW2, they might get the idea that the ends do not justify the means. With Bad Company, what will they get? If you're snarky, determined, and have a "f*** everyone else" attitude, you get to drive off into the sunset with the prize?"
