Op Ed

Gaming Nexus - US Army vet discusses Six Days in Fallujah.
"I'm as patriotic as anyone else (note my Captain America belt buckle, and Purple Heart), but I think that the issues we face today in the 'war on terror,' both in the sphere of actual combat and the underlying social issues (how poverty and social dysfunction create an environment for radical Islam, for example), are certainly serious enough that they deserve an even-handed and measured treatment. Again, it's a maturity question: is the gaming community ready for a truly morally challenging and thought-provoking narrative? I'm not as sure as Konami apparently is."

Politics in gaming should never be allowed, its all about killing your friends and making new friends, getting that new weapon or higher rank. It shouldn't be to raise anger and discrimination against who ever.

I play to unwind, chill out & have a laugh with friends and thats it!

I dont want to be screaming damnation to all, well i do but its all in jest as it should be hehehe..
