    Since every side in the Second World War did "questionable things", that's why I said all Second World War games; even ones where you solely play the British or Americans.
    Yeah. Rockstar Games must release another GTA sequel in a hurry so the video game critics will something else to attack...

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

    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.

    Brothers in Arms, of course, has Second World War soldiers contributing to a video game.
    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...

    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.

    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.

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

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

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.
    All Second World War games too.

    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.

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

    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.
