Nation, Iím sick of hearing about this. Fox News pushed me to make this blog purely about how Medal of Honor isnít doing a bad thing here.
I know plenty of people are pissed about this, and for some of you it strikes home. But no matter what, a War game will "strike home" for somebody. So Iím not telling you ďDonít feel bad, donít be botheredĒ, just donít make such a ruckus out of it.
WW II games have existed for so friggin long. I donít remember any games where you play as the Nazis, true, but the feeling is still there. WW II was still such a tragic time for discrimination and scapegoats. Although you donít see it in WW II games, the feeling is still there. And because you canít just ďseeĒ it, people donít complain. Itís making a game out of a serious, violent event. Yet letís ignore that, because that doesnít matter. Itís not happening now.
Iím not a big fan of South Park, but they occasionally make good points. For example, they say that it takes time for something to lessen the seriousness of it.
So if MoH was making this game in the future, after the war, a LOT less people would complain. Guaranteed. But still, all in all, itís just a game! It does take influence from real-life events, and it offends people, but what war game doesnít offend Someone? Even Halo offends aliens and humans.
Playing as the Taliban wasnít the smartest move for MoH, but for such anÖextinct series of games, what better way to boost sales? Although everyone talks negative about it, everyone knows about it by now. So if you walk on a street and say ďMedal of Honor TalibanĒ hundreds of people will be like ďYeah, I heard about thatĒ. And there are still plenty of people like me, who donít give a shit, and realize that it is just a game.
Now if playing as the Taliban meant you controlled a real life Taliban and whoever you killed in game was killed in real life, then YES, WE GOT A PROBLEM.
Iím getting this game, because I feel as though it will be a good FPS, because Iíve played some previous. Call me a demon, devil, or Taliban soldier. I donít give a crap.
