Sniper Game Fallout

Criticism of sniper games rises (thanks Dan Leadbetter) has the news that Sniper: Path of Vengeance has been pulled from Wal-Mart shelves in the Washington, D.C. area. The move is described as being motivated by sensitivity to how the game's title and subject matter relate to the numerous recent murders by a sniper in the area, rather than any actual belief that the game is somehow at fault for, or otherwise connected to these attacks. The article goes on to discuss criticisms of shooter games, offering opinions both supporting and countering theories about their influence.

Instead of him dying, I purpose that we bring back the draft in the next war and allow you to go to combat.

Don't joke around about it. It's not funny.

I won't debate why we're fighting and dying today. Those are some of the reasons I left the Army. It seems like the reasons don't justify the price. It's less about US Defense and more about US Interest.
