Default We'll get the heat

I'm sure that we (gun owners) will take the heat for this, even though it has nothing to do with us.
Controversy erupted after an unidentified developer created a digital reproduction of a real high school, Port Moody Secondary School in Port Moody, Canada, for the violent first-person shooter game Counter-Strike. The popular video game allows users to create customized scenes and share the “maps” with others. In this customization, the shooter wanders the school shooting military opponents.

Why to video game producers do everything is such poor taste? I remember when MW2 did the scene in the airport terminal. I heard that you were supposed to shoot inocent people in that part of the game.

The more I think about this the more messed up it is. I was thinking that nobody would use a video game to plan an attack. Then I remembered how the 911 attackers used flight simulators to practice for their attack. Do video game people feel no resonsibility for anything? I am sure they will claim freedom of speech or something stupid like that.

That is one of the most irresponsible things I've ever heard. What are those nitwits thinking about? They ought to be drummed out of business and run out of town. Good Lord....

I've played that game, and remember that mission vividly. It was disturbing. After just a short moment of blazing away with the machine gun (I believe it was an M60), I quit and just followed the other NPCs (non playable characters) throughout the rest of the mission, until the emergency services arrived and started shooting back.

I also did not see at all where that mission was advancing the plot of the game.

Terrible choice in a supporting scene/role.

It's a video game. We make movies about Vietnam and the takedown of Osama and the assassination of past presidents, hell there is a movie comming out in which America falls and the Whitehouse is destroyed. Nobody cries about that sh!t.

Seriously? This is the same logic as saying gunmakers should feel guilty about a shooting with their guns. The game developer made it for entertainment they had no intention of it ever being used to hurt people. I agree that the scene in MW3 was way inappropriate and shouldn't have been in the game, but there are movies with things like this and very few people complain about it.

I'm not saying they can't do it, I'm just saying a game that has you shooting up a high school is in extremely poor taste and totally unnecessary.

I don't think anyone is arguing so much on the morality of the issue, as much as how much flak the gun community may get for it.

Well never mind...
