I still think some of you guys are missing the point. If mattlef is worried more about the specific level, its content, and how it fits in the game, thats another thing almost entirely.

IMO, "No Russian" is not tasteless whatsoever. I liked it because it was something new. You're not just shooting the bad guys, now you're killing people to make a statement like the terrorists! It did also add to the storyline in a big way.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! DON'T READ THIS BELOW! WAIT, IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED THE GAME WHAT ARE YOU DOING POSTING IN THIS THREAD???

The guy you played as was an undercover U.S. agent, and Makarov knew it. The reason Makarov, his goons, and you go to shoot up that airport so that later when you, the undercover American is left dead at the scene, the people will think that it was done by the U.S. Now they got an excuse to go invade the U.S, which is exactly what Makarov wants. Simple. Now, I guess a cutscene would suffice, but it won't bring the same level of enrichment or involvement in the story to the player. No it wasn't necessary, but it added a whole new level of realism, and let the player play from a different side, which was great.

In inFAMOUS, I went with the dark side, anything to save my ass, killing innocents if needed.

In WoW I was playing either Gnomes (y'all know they're the true evil...) or Undead for Cannibalism

I always prefer being the bad guy in games, because I know I ain't one IRL
I get your point but those are all pretty fantastic games (fantastic meaning not close to or trying to portray the real world). Gunning down pedestrians in a modern day city or travelers at an airport is different. It's like comparing Darth Vader to Hitler.

I dont see the big issue over this mission. Yeah, when it started i said to myself "holy crap waht the f*** is this". Its a video game about WAR, which is not only rated m, but also gives you the option to skip said mission. They decided to show another side of the war rather than just the us army mowing down thousands of terrorists the entire game. This type of thing happens in real life, maybe not to that degree, or exactly that way, but innocents die by terrorist attacks all the time and they decided to put it in to the game. Im sure most peoples reaction to this was that this guy is a cold blooded killer and that you have to do EVERYTHING you can to stop him in the rest of the game.

Its no different really than what happens in real life, this is just less censored than the news and people are so shocked about it they freak out over it. If people dont want their kids seeing things like this dont buy them games that are rated M.

didn't your mama teach you not to judge a book by its cover?

You played A "mission"

You read the reviews, watch the trailers, made the choice and bought it.

Don't like it? stop playing it or trash it.

Look; don't wimp out over content in a video game.

You either SEVERELY limit all games and every bit of content and never allow anything that will offend anyone, ever.

Or you don't censor them at all.

I prefer the latter. You can put whatever you want in a friggin video game, a human being still has to make a decision based on that bull crap.

It was like an afterthought. If you haven't played it but don't want to spoil it, then what are you doing posting in this thread? Obviously you don't mind spoilers, but I said it generally to anyone who doesn't want a spoiler and yet is posting in this thread.
