OXCGN Discusses – Six Days In Fallujah: Now We All Can Go To Hell
Can War Games Aiming For Realism Be Edu-tainment?

Update: 27th April 2009:
It seems Konami have dumped Atomic Games’ controversial title, bowing to pressure by releasing their rights to the game’s coming publication in 2010. Atomic Games will be hoping that a braver (crazier?) publisher grabs publication rights.
I have to admit I am a bit of a contradiction. I tend towards being against violence, wars and killing but love my shooter games. As someone with a history background I also tend to like historical accuracy in games like the World War II shooters. But ever since they started to get more serious about their content with games like Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway and Call Of Duty: World At War, no longer just focusing on the big battles, brotherhood of soldiers, and glory, I have wondered if this is where games meant to provide entertainment and fun should head.

No big deal though; after all those wars were long ago and we can feel far removed from those experiences of hell, right?
