Didn’t this all happen in Modern Warfare 2, as well?

There’s a controversy brewing over the trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game. It seems the game depicts an attack on Britain similar to the terrible events of 7/7 2005. I can see their point, but I don’t think they should ban the game over this–this sort of thing has been done in fiction for a long time.

Activision’s statement on this, quoted in the Mail article above, is: “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a fictional action game aimed at mature adults and set in World War Three. The scenes in the game are entirely fictional and are not intended to recreate any historical events.”

(It’s getting kind of ridiculous with this series. By my reckoning, they’re on at least World War Five by this point, but never mind.)

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
