Allowing gamers to take on the persona of Taliban fighters seeking out US soldiers is exactly why new videogame “Medal of Honor” is eagerly awaited by gamers and, in equal measure, dreaded by politicians.
Millions of Westerners may soon be turning virtually into Taliban fighters. On October 12 (October 15 in Europe), game-maker Electronic Arts (EA Games) will see Medal of Honor on the shelves in gaming stores across the Western world. Gamers who manage to get their hands on a copy will then be free to turn themselves into virtual Taliban combatants, and battle against others playing American soldiers.
