The US does the exact same thing. It's tiem more games come out where people can shoot Americans. I'm tired of always killing Russians. Not because I don't like Americans, on the contrary. But just to show the world everyone is equal. A videogame where the US president is the bad guy and you have to kill him. The US would ban it like crazy.

You got a point there

I think they're doing a good enough job of that by themselves by pulling silly stunts like this.

i didn't want to intervene in political stuff..but i will say i side with user connection on most points...

leaving a few futuristic sci fi games there are no other actual games in market where we play as a non american defending our country from the invading forces of america and are almost invaded and then we somehow defeat and obliterate america and it actually feels good(in game of course).....

as it happens in games which show the defeat or invasion of usa, by hook or crook finally america wins at the end of the day......

and i think if a game came out which showed british/american soldiers being the tyrant and being butchered by the righteous xyz soldier from xyz country came out then it also would have had same receptance in america as what happens in other countries.....

The US does the exact same thing. It's tiem more games come out where people can shoot Americans. I'm tired of always killing Russians. Not because I don't like Americans, on the contrary. But just to show the world everyone is equal. A videogame where the US president is the bad guy and you have to kill him. The US would ban it like crazy.

those stores can do w/e the hell they want. its their store and they'll make money in w/e way they want to.

There's a difference between being forced to play as one of two sides in multiplayer and being the heroic protagonist of a single player campaign.
