War. What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing. Does anyone else feel a certain uneasiness when they’re playing games set in real wars? I was recently playing the new Call of Duty game, Black Ops and couldn’t help but feeling a massive wave of guilt during the levels set in Vietnam. This was really odd for me because usually I take games for what they are, games, but something about playing as a solider in Vietnam made me feel troubled, maybe because it was so recent, or maybe because it wasn’t justifiable. With games set in WW2 you feel like you are the good guy and it's okay that you're killing all those cyber people because they were evil Nazis and it was a necessary evil, but when I was playing the Vietnam levels in Black Ops I felt so dirty and guilty, just running in guns blazing listening to rock music, that poor cyber man might have had a family and children and I just killed him.
It’s probably just my weird morals.
