I like the modern warfare theme myself, but i meant people who think it's in bad taste to feature theaters of war where we are still actively involved and losing troops. What was that FPS that featured missions based on recent events in the news? That didn't go over well in the media.
Sure, you can choose to take out innocent, unarmed civilians in those examples but it was not the player's main objective at any point as far as I know; and it STILL causes an uproar.
It doesn't have to be a AAA title to make us look bad. They STILL bring up Super Columbine Massacre RPG in the news and how tiny was that?
