Video games creating some kind of controversy isn't new. Ranging from first amendment rights
, to whether games are art or not
, they manage to get into the news one way or another. For publisher EA and developer Danger Close, their upcoming title Medal of Honor
was gaining quite a bit of press, thanks to its multiplayer mode. As EA representatives were putting it, "If someone's the cops, someone's gotta be the robbers." In the case of the upcoming title, that would mean the robbers would have to be Taliban forces, and that's exactly what the developers put into the title. But, activists, military families, and friends of those in the Armed Forces raised their voices, and now the developers have changed their minds, opting for "Opposing Force" rather than "Taliban."
