Editor Randy Yasenchak from Elder-Geek.com explores the question "Should chest shots be as vital a target as head shots?" in video games.
From E-G: "In current day body armor, there are still weak spots between the ceramic plates and under a soldier’s arms. In this photo of a Battlefield Bad Company 2 soldier, he’s not wearing groin protectors, nor is he wearing shoulder protectors in his vest. I feel those areas should be considered as “vital” in video games depending on the angle of the shot and the type of gun that is being fired."
