Here's the thing - because I played the Medal of Honor beta, and after I just got into a multiplayer game and I realized I was a talliban shooting at coalition forces, I got a really sick feeling in my stomach and immediately stopped playing.
After just coming back from a deployment to Afghanistan (and one deployment to Iraq in 08), I lost a friend in afg and had several friends blown up by IEDs... I know it's just a game, and I know you might see it as 'bullshit protect the children' but really, I'm a gamer and I understand where you're coming from, but when you do a deployment for 7 months in the middle of nowhere surrounded by people who really don't like you, it's stressful, and the idea of playing a game as talliban shooting at US armed forces made me pretty sick.
I'm sure plenty of other Marines won't have a problem with this game - all my friends are huge gamers playing COD and whatnot, but I do think a few others would have problems with this.

Comment I'm a skeptic of 3D (Score 1) 386

I don't have much experience with this new-fangled 3D stuff... but I went to watch Shrek 3-D the other weekend... and I walked out half-way through the movie to go play DDR at the arcade. I'm a big PC gamer, and I did think about going for Nvision with my new comp, good thing I waited for more positive reports about it. I'm not sure what was wrong with Shrek 3D, it probably didn't help I couldn't stand the movie, but I was totally non-impressed with the 3D effect. My eyes aren't that good and I wasn't wearing my glasses, probably could have had an affect on the experience, but whatever it was, it wasn't entertaining enough to keep me sitting down long enough to watch the whole thing. I'm thinking 3D might be more entertaining with PC games... you know, content that is actually interesting, but I'm definitely waiting... probably a long time.
