  • Jihadis using BF2

    "Battlefield 2" ordinarily shows U.S. troops engaging forces from China or a united Middle East coalition. But in a modified video trailer posted on Islamic Web sites and shown to lawmakers, the game depicts a man in Arab headdress carrying an automatic weapon into combat with U.S. invaders.

    "I was just a boy when the infidels came to my village in Blackhawk helicopters," a narrator's voice said as the screen flashed between images of street-level gunfights, explosions and helicopter assaults.

    This is not good news. What will this mean for the videogames cause real world violence theory? Hell, what I should be more worried about is whether or not this conditioning is really working. If it is there are implications far beyond just "these games are leading to violence".

      Is that from team america? The part where the main character is talking to the terrorists in incognito? heh, just reminds me of that.

      Really this doesn't come as a surprise to me, it works for the US army after all.
