CoD: Modern Warfare 2

Just wait until Fox News gets their hands on this.

From what I understand, the player is a double agent for the CIA who infiltrates a terrorist organization and must partake in the slaughter of an airport to maintain cover. This includes gunning down innocent and defenseless civilians before combatting the police.

Personally I like it actually. It's very brutal but very shocking, and a lot more effective than a cutscene. But hey, at least we're seeing controversy towards a videogame over violence instead of sexual content.

Pretty ridiculous way to keep your undercover image up but whatever.

Yes, and I see from the video that the CIA agent "must" kill the civilians in larger numbers than the real terrorists!  At least Jack Bauer tries not to kill too many (or none at all) in this type of situation.

Apparently, you can choose to skip through "scenes of atrocities" like these.

Full article.

I wouldn't feel comfortable playing that.
So Infinity Ward has succeeded with their goal then.

Their goal is to make avid fps gamers like Mikko --the target demographic-- uncomfortable and hence not want to buy their game?  That doesn't make a lot of sense to me right now.  Maybe it's time to get drunk.

At first I thought it was a good idea but then I realised it was shit because it's basically turning the villains into cardboard-cutout evil men who must be stopped GO USA UK FUCK YEAH

It's a good way to show that they're evil, but it's no more sophisticated than showing the main antogonist kicking a puppy. On the other hand I presume they're not really interested in making you understand the enemy's motivation either though.

Hahah I sound so fucking pretentious here but my brother's got the prestige edition for Christmas so I don't really care about the game because I'm gonna be sneaking around with night vision goggles anyway

Just watched it.. I'm not really disgusted or disturbed - if anything it's stylish and memorable.. but it's just such a utterly ridiculous concept.

I'd say the goal is to evoke/provoke a reaction/emotion. Clearly if you feel uncomfortable (who the hell would feel comfortable slaughtering these people?) then they've made a good job. If you're too squeamish or simply don't want to do it, just skip ahead and play from the next checkpoint. You'd miss out on the exposition - not that the Call of Duty games have ever been that centered around multi-layered story telling (nor does it need to!) - but I think it's a pretty bold and interesting move on their part to tell one.

But now it just feels like one of those things that will be blown out of proportions because it's supposedly "radical".

but it's just such a utterly ridiculous concept.
Why?

There are lots of men in the world who have gone around ruthlessly killing civilians.  Does that make them all cardboard-cutout villains?  I would guess that some of them are interesting (albeit evil) people if you got to know them.  But maybe your point is that after the atrocities in the beginning of the game, there will be no doubt in the player's mind that they are really bad people....which would be ironic considering the player had done the same stuff.  At any rate, I don't see why that makes it not a good idea for the game.

Why?

Isn't the CIA supposed to be the good guys? Even if the character is undercover I don't think you'd partake in mass slaughter. I guess the motivation is "we really really have to do this cause if we don't terrorists r gona launch nukes nd then even more ppl wil dai"

Or "so shoot the terrorists, jeopardizing your entire mission but retaining your sense of morality, then somehow you get a new lead and manage to catch the bad guys and then the world is safe and you feel awesome for saving people"

If anything I guess this scene begs the question "how far can you go in trying to retain national security?".
