GUN Backfires

BOYCOTTGUN.COM (thanks GamerGod) is a website with a call to action from the Association For American Indian Development who are looking to inspire a boycott of Activision products over GUN, the recently released shooter set in the wild west. The goal is to inspire a recall for GUN or the release of an edited version that redresses problematic depictions of Native Americans and their treatment within the game. Here's a bit:

It has come to our attention that video game publisher, Activision, has released for Xbox 360, Xbox, Playstation , PS2 and PC, a new game set in the American West with some very disturbing racist and genocidal elements toward Native Americans. The game is called "Gun" and features a frontiersman hero named Colton White. One of his earliest tasks that the game player must complete before advancing to the next level is to slaughter, not once, but on an ongoing basis, Apache Indians. Not only slaughter (and this is the terminology used in the game) but to scalp (terminology also used in the game) them as well with a "scalping knife" that can be purchased as part of the many weapons offered to the hero of the game, Colton White.
