Eh… I followed bits and pieces of the argument so far, however.
The video in question is very disturbing and I am a bit unnerved by the factor of innocent civilians being gunned down in an airport. With all the talk of ‘plot’ and ‘story’ they could of interpreted it another way in game. I mean, they could of gave some form of media or news of shootings without showing it, instead of putting you there in the scene of the crisis. I can understand why many of the Russians are angry at this and I fully agree with their banning of the game, the video of the scenery was unnecessary to its fullest. Sure, there is lots of violence in gaming, I will agree. I mean, GTA(Grand Theft Auto) series isn’t any better with all of its random sprite civilian killing and what not. I don’t agree much to that line of games either, though how that video above played out was just to ‘real’ and horrific, even for a ‘game.’ Yea, everyone has a right to free speech, don’t get me wrong there, but you know, sometimes you have to ask yourself where do you draw the line in gaming or game developing? When too much is too much? To me, that video there was too much, but that is my verdict on it.
