It a friggin game, in COD you can kill american soldiers in GTA you can kill cops etc etc This is the typical thing where someone who has suffered takes it out on the wrong people and no-one can disagree because of said persons suffering. I wont buy the game if it does come out I really don't give a sh*t about it but this is just much ado about nothing.


I have friends and family in the military. Fortunately none of them have been killed. You don't have to have a loved one killed in the military to know that this game is offensive. Yes I realize that many gamers legitimately enjoy the game and they don't have the same mindset as this lady. But the game is in poor taste.


Viperlord, there are a large number of games where one can kill American troops. This is not an unusual situation at all. The ONLY difference is that this one happens to be the ability to do so while being part of a Muslim organization. Is that really worse than doing so while being part of a Nazi organization? I don't really think so.


Your assumptions flow over. I have not said thing 1 about this being a Muslim issue.


There was no assumption...I stated the difference between the situation as I see it.

But I have reverence for their sacrifice. I realize that eventually all wars will become games. It doesn't mean that we have to create a game while we're in the middle of war. Still I understand gamers want realism so I at least understand it. But to be able to take the other side and kill representations of American troops that are currently protecting us; that is sick.


It's a fucking GAME. Seriously. Just over three years ago, I was active duty military. So I'm a bit close to the situation. I don't find this sick, I don't find it disgusting, I don't find it threatening. I find it...well, stupid because it's a first-person shooter and they all suck by definition. Now, as I stated earlier, I completely understand the mother's perspective and I don't at all blame her for feeling the way she does. I also have no problem with her stating her views...it's a free country. But someone who is NOT personally invested in the emotional feelings are really stretching by finding this idea so repulsive.

I would agree with this. I did not find it cowardly either. It was several other things (<smile>), but not cowardly.


W/E. I don't care how many of ya'll want to dis the men and women protecting you. It's a coward's ploy.

Well you're wrong. You can call me an asshole, a douche-bag, a un-patriotic dick-wad, a communist, a heartless bastard, a fucking moron, retard, gaywad, dipshit, liberal limp-wristed pussy, un-sympathetic monster, or just an all round bad person.

But there is nothing cowardly about standing up for what you believe.



Unless you stand up in a room full of like-minded people. Nothing brave to that.

Hurumph.


But I didn't did I? You're here aren't you?


[not lecturing]

I think by like-minded people he meant parents whose children weren't killed in Afghanistan or Iraq. Also, do you guys differentiate between soldiers who went to Afghanistan versus soldiers who went to Iraq? Or does it not matter?



No, I meant it doesnt take bravery to stand up in a room full of like minded people and state an opinion that most of the room agrees with. I.E. like some actor making an anti-war statement while accepting their academy award.

Contempt? WHERE have I shown ANY contempt for the men and women currently protecting me, jackass? Where? Let's be specific. And maybe you won't run from this one like the fucking coward YOU are, as you have in the past. I definitely have contempt for you, though. You disgust me.

That's pretty simple. You agreed with MV's comments that an American soldier deserved to die for merely being in Afghanistan. Not only that you have been quite contemptuous against the people supporting the troops if you want to circle the landing pad that way.
