Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a "chilling" and "ultra-violent game" which is "inappropriate' for children."
That's according to the Daily Mail, a British newspaper mainly read by middle aged, middle class women in Britain. The article compares the train derailing in Mind the Gap to the 7/7 attacks carried out by Al Qaeda suicide bombers, most notably the bombing at the London King's Cross railway station, in which 26 people were killed.
Mediawatch-uk, a pressure group/group of people who like to complain, also displayed concern at the level, with one spokesman stating, "In light of the fact we have just had the 7/7 inquests, it is in incredibly poor taste."
Activision, defending what is now their flagship series, replied, "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."
Overall, one comment seemed to sum up the article in a nutshell, "I didn't realise that the 7/7 attackers raced through the tube system firing at the trains using a cannon mounted on a jeep. Live and learn, eh?"
So, what are your opinions on the matter?
