Was wondering what the people at occ are thinking about this game. if you dont know the game is based upon the fall of fallujah which was a very bad battle in 2004. so do you think its to soon for this or do you think this game would be crazy to play knowing that your dad or someone you know went though this

I honestly don't have a problem with it. I would play it.

 

I think it got out of hand. I mean there are plenty of war movies and video games, but no does anything about that. Just because it had to do something with a recent event everyone gets riled up. So the message I get from this is you can make a war movie or a war video game glamorizing it after everyone is dead or near dead or just wait 10 - 20 years.

 

The fact is actual soldiers during that firefight put their input and time into helping create this game. It was like some random studio said hey let's make an Iraqi game for the hell of it. Actual soldiers backed it up with their stories and first hand experience. It was a collaboration of a studio and soldiers. I see nothing wrong with that. Some people like to show us their experiences of war in a book, a movie, a documentary but how dare they show it in a video game. It's ludicrous that those forms of expressing it are ok, but a video game isn't.

 

Anyways the studio still wants to make the game. They have been meeting all their deadlines, and would continue if they got another publisher. Honestly if there is any decent publisher out there that has the balls to back this controversial game is Rockstar Games.

 

EDIT: I honestly don't even care if the game came out good or bad. It's a matter of freedom of speech, I'm getting at. These soldiers who helped developed this game. They fought and experienced it. Let them at least tell their story in any shape or form they choose.

let the game be made its all the bleeding heart gutless liberals that are making this world fall apart with their ideas that video games cause violence and such. these thing that are accused of causing these incidents are not the cause they are merely used as an excuse. besides the story needs to be told and video games can be a huge way of conveying it to todays youth who other wise may not now of what really happened there because text books arent updated enough in there schools.

you do have a point about the text books being a little outdated my school updated books about every 2 to 4 years.
Yea, up until grade 8 for me all of our books had USSR in them...

I saw the little video about it. It looks like they worked hard to make it historically accurate and, assuming the gameplay was fun, I'd have no problem playing it. Would the fact that some of my buddies were in the battle deter me? Hell no. My grandpa landed on Normandy on D-Day and it didn't stop me from watching all the guys get blown apart on the beach on MOH:AA. Fallujah was a nasty battle, and I hope the game gives a nice lead up to the beginning of it, i.e. making note of the civilian contractors who were assassinated and their bodies mutilated on camera for the world to see. What were they doing there? Installing electricity and central plumbing to places that had never had it before. Lovely.

 

Oh, look! Here they are!

Frankly I think they should release the game and donate a part of the proceeds to the families of innocent civilians butchered by the Islamic Extremist of any flavor. Especially innocent civilians who were participating in public works projects or delivering humanitarian aid.

 

At the end of the game there should be a user poll asking how many people think we should just blow the crap out of Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and North Korea.

 

I say if everyone thinks that Western culture is full of bullys then we show them what a bully really is.

 

We offer asylum to all women, and all children under the age of 16. Then we blow the .& out of everything else.

 

Why not save the men? Well, lets see . . . . You live in countries used to harbor terrorism, you protect them in your villages and enclaves, you fail to force your government to kick these scums out of your country - that makes you just a complacent co-conspirator in my eyes.

Yup mine too, we had some of our science videos on laser disk. Most of our text books were made in the 80's.
