377. Terrorism in Games Sep 12, 2001, 09:18 anon@195.252
In the wake of yesterday's tragedy, the declaration of war by international terrorists against all civilization, how can anybody in their right mind keep playing or supporting games which feature terrorists in a favorable role? Playing a terrorist in a game still provides some kind of understanding, if not support, for the terrorists. Players taking on that role, acting like terrorists, can and does create sympathy. A lot of people play terrorists, taking hostages and blowing up buildings, never ever realizing the true meaning of such acts of terror. As an example, Counter-Strike is one of the most popular online games, making half of all its users play as terrorists! If anything, the terrorist assault on America has shown that terrorists belong to the very worst kind of inhuman humans, right among those who rape and molest children. Would any sane person enjoy playing a game where you are a rapist or child molester? Playing a terrorist, a killer of thousands of innocent people, is not different at all! So now that terrorism has shown its true face, it's about time to reconsider your attitude towards such games, players should boycott games featuring such terrorists as a good and/or playable role, developers should cease making or start altering such games. The aforementioned Counter-Strike modification for Half-Life, being the current leader in multiplayer games, should probably lead the movement and shut down its servers until an update replaces the terrorists with a more appropriate type of player character. Again, playing a terrorist is just like playing a rapist or child molester, show no sympathy and certainly don't support them with your games...
