And yet the movies and books based on the iraq were were somehow not considered to be distasteful or offensive and did not incite hysteria? This all stems from the public's misperception of video games. Many people don't view games as art or elegant vehicles for telling stories. They only think that video games are good for "bang bang." It's not as if they are going to let you participate in all the atrocity's SELECT FEW marines were involved in. Probably just fighting insurgents.. And if they don't like that well then hey.. kinda makes you wonder whose side they're on, huh?
