Lets consider war itself a "game". EA sports always says "if its in the game, its in the game"â„¢. I know its a very touchy subject, but it is what it is.



If only it were so simple. Konami had to pull 'Six Days In Fallujah' due to the public outcry.

i read about that.if the game had a different title it would have been under the radar the whole time and maybe even a great hit (nothing like MW tho). thats konamis dumb ass fault.

Both sides have good points, but i'm going to basically repeat what others have said:



Guns, knives, claymores, a lot of things kill.



So why not implement IED's?



Yea, it may be bad for vets to see this, but wouldn't it be just as bad for someone who saw their friend die in Iraq or Afghanistan from being shot?



Yes, it's the same.



Why not just take out the whole game then?



It's just a game, maybe they shouldn't add some whole big scene to depict it, but it's IW who makes the decision on whether to put it in or not.



I really doubt they will though.

This could also be used a replacement for a claymore mine, don't know why I didn't think of that before Smiley Happy

The original poster and anyone agreeing with him really ought to be more worried about the inclusion of guns. It's incredibly biased of us in the west to think that we should exclude things which hurt us, whilst the entire MW1 storyline was based around weapons which killed absurd amounts of people in WW2.

Well touching stories dont have their place here.

It happened but you know what else happens? People get shot by gang bangers. Dirty cops kill innocent people. Drug dealers sell drugs. And theres many games that depict ALL of that. In fact theres a very popular one out now, and maybe youve heard of it. GTA V?

So yea.

Life imitates Art and vice versa. Next thing youll want to take guns out of FPS's because people get shot by them. ... get real.
