(Sees the American flag waiving behind nick_davison while the national anthem is playing) I don't think anyone is arguing that he shouldn't be able create and show it. I think he's just another person that is capitalizing on a tragic event and the suffering of other people. The only difference in this case is the form he's presenting it under, i.e., a game. From playing it and reading what he says, I don't see any "hihger value" shining through. He's just an opertunist, one of many. A comparison of this to Citizen Kane is absurd. A better comparison is O.J. Simpson's "If I Had Done It." He has the right to create it, I have the right to condem him for it. Actions have consequences and he is deserving of most of the backlash he's getting. What did he expect?
