The grim spectacle of people kneejerking over Medal of Honor continues, this time with a British politician who is “shocked” at the idea of the game existing, and wants UK retailers to boycott the game.
“I am disgusted and angry,” says defense secretary Liam Fox. “It’s hard to believe any citizen of our country would wish to buy such a thoroughly un-British game. I would urge retailers to show their support for our armed forces and ban this tasteless product.”
The UK department for culture has distanced himself from the comments made by his fellow MP, claiming it’s a “personal view” and that MOH isn’t banned. Meanwhile, EA has hit back at the British papers reporting the story and claiming that you can kill British soldiers, which isn’t true.
Isn’t it funny how politicians and media pundits are angry at a group like the Taliban is in a game, yet act just like them by wanting to ban something that they don’t agree with? And considering several members of the armed forces are likely going to buy and enjoy the game anyway, I think Fox (suitable name) is chatting total shite. Like most MPs, I guess.
Expect idiots like Fox to come out of the woodwork more and more as we get closer to the game’s release.
