Activision's Call of Duty Endowment

Activision Blizzard announces its Call of Duty Endowment (CODE), a foundation they are forming with a $1 million grant to support groups that assist veterans with their careers, reports Washingtonpost.com. In spite of recruitment ads promising the military leads to great careers, word is: "Other government and private studies show that the percentage of unemployed veterans has been historically higher than the percentage among civilians. Eighteen percent of veterans who left the military in the past one to three years were unemployed, according to a 2008 Department of Veterans Affairs employment survey." The foundation's first donation of $125,000 is to the Paralyzed Veterans of America to help open a vocational rehabilitation center. "The joblessness rate that [veterans] should have should be far less than the national average, not more," says Activision Blizzard chief executive Bobby Kotick. "How do you expect people to actually join the military if when they leave the military they can't integrate back into the free market they're supposed to be protecting?"

Spoken like a spoiled child who just can't wait for their new toy. While I'm busy fucking off, you make sure to go and beg your mommy one more time to drive you to the midnight sale on a school night.

But some of us grownups have serious issues with this game.

Firstly, I am 31 years old. There are virtually no children on this site. Almost all of us are veteran PC gamers from the early 90s or earlier. So my mother has very little to do with my game purchases.

Secondly, I don't like the Call of Duty games, or standard shooters in general. I have no plans to buy Modern Warfare 2 or any other shooter in the near future. I play almost exclusively RPGs and strategy games.

With that in mind, my point stands.

Fuck off and don't come back.
