    Meanwhile actual soldiers will play it and not give a crap.

    The other amusing thing is EA saying it's realistic.

      I'm sure the game will be snapped up by our loyal Anglo-Islamic population, who will enjoy the fantasy of shooting up all those nasty Taliban fighters, and Mr Fox will not have to be so concerned.

      ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
      All human ills he can subdue,
      Or with a bauble or medal
      Can win mans heart for you;
      And many a blessing know to stew
      To make a megloamaniac bright;
      Give honour to the dainty Corse,
      The Pixie is a little shite.

        I didn't like the EA spokesman at first. But his argument was interesting, saying this was analogous to WWII soldiers coming home and writing or accounting their war experience over the radio but just updated to a new media form.

          What are the odds on user LiamFoXxX being the top Taliban fighter in the multiplayer.

            It's quite a silly argument, actually. The single player game doesn't allow you to play as the Taliban. it's only in the multi-player game. And it's kinda hard to have a multi-player game without including an oppositon force.

            Vietcong 2 has a segment in the single player game where you play as the VC.

              How stupid. How many games are out there where you could play as a member of some group that has done questionable things? Modern Warfare 2, you could play as a terrorist, killing americans in multiplayer. Bad company 2, you can play as a russian killing americans. BF: Vietnam you could play as VC. The list goes on and on. It's a video game.

                      Command and Conquer Generals lets you play as US, China, or Terrorist in single player.

                      Like CupASoup said, "It's a video game".

                        Another bored Euro buorocrat with too many time in his hands; Doesn't he has an Army, Air Force and Navy to supervise not to mention "small war" in Afganistan? Computer games shud be last thing for him to worry abbout.
                        Besides MI5 can trace any Ahmed and Tariq playing as Talibans in London or Shefield. This will cut the costs of survilance.
                        Kosovo is Serbian.
                        I support United Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

                            The man is a %[email protected]$# retard.

                            Oh, like if I play Germany in a WW2 game, does that mean I am a %[email protected] Nazi and would have no problem liquidating millions of Jews?

                            Sometimes it is sooooo clear the elected officials around us haven't got more than money gaining them their position, because it certainly wasn't having a damn brain.

                            Ya the Taliban are $#@[email protected] scum and it wouldn't be so bad if every last one vapour locked right now. But they ain't ancient history ... yet. They are merely the people we would like to see dead, as dead as the Nazis.

                            And in a game, they are just the other side.

                            Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
                            I didn't for a long time either.

                              One-sentence posts can be hard to understand...

                              If you read the post I think you'll disagree with yourself. I don't think BF: Vietnam or Modern Warfare 2 are set in WWII.

                              Or did you mean to post that all WWII games allow you to play the enemy?

                              Medal of Honor also has had veterans contribute in the past, as well as Captain Dale Dye as an advisor.

                              Of course, Brothers in Arms has a former ACG editor for an advisor...
