It's interesting how the discussions here about this game were all basically unanimous that it was a bad idea. Taking recent, real world events, putting real people that were there as NPCs, but ignoring all the civilian casualties those people caused feels, to use a dictionary word, icky.
But then a Muslim group says something and now there's vehement dissent here.
Maybe a few of you should wonder why you didn't care, or much care, or see any need to defend this game, until a Muslim said something?
I'll agree with you on one thing, and we can all agree here: It's stupid to care about what any cultural/political organization, like CAIR, thinks about any video game. It's better to ignore them and enjoy the games you want to enjoy. The challenge is to get the gaming companies to ignore these political groups, which so far I don't see an easy solution to.
Perhaps looks to games made in other countries where the developers are not affected by vocal ideologies.
