People like the Afghanistan war. It's not very controversial. All the major Presidential candidates said they were fine with that war, for example.

Not so much with the Iraq war...

i'm not so sure. for instance, modern warfare takes place in unspecifiedistan, they were smart.

it's all about presentation. as long as medal of honor remains vaguely non-specific with it's battle, all is well. average folks know afghanistan is a current global hotspot in a general way.

"six days in fallujah" came right out swinging, even with it's name, claiming to be an accurate representation. when it comes to action shooters i feel like a certain amount of vaguery is necessary. when you're naming specific locations, battles and casualties it kind of feels exploitative. it's all especially weird when i can still hide to regenerate my health.

He has some nice turns of phrase:

Their ultimate purpose is human bait for the men attending the show.

The ubiquity of women as the crotch-bait to draw people to a particular booth

In any case, I usually don't like it when games exploit real life wars and their dead. It's just so shameful the way most games do it. Oh well, there's money to be made.

i'd like to hear how pc gaming "won" when all of those titles are ports or cross-developed except the 2 rts games.

i love gaming on my pc but these articles always come across as so desperate and pathetic.

PC Gamer magazine had an interesting article - "Why the PC won E3". A bit cheerleading (why does one platform have to win? Isn't it enough to have great games?) but still interesting. It repeats the idea that the PC doesn't have any single company willing to put a lot of PR money behind it, which means the PC as a platform has a very low profile on E3 and similar events. But if you look at the number of great games, it seems our favourite platform is on the way up.
