EA Medal Of Honor Banned On U.S Military Bases

The Medal of Honor Game by EA has been banned on Military bases due to the fact that a player can play as the Taliban. EA has no comment about the ban but outrage has been building about the game for some time.

None of the games will be sold on any US military bases, the UK has a ban on the game altogether. Game stop who sells the game made this statement “GameStop has agreed out of respect for our past and present men and women in uniform, we will not carry Medal of Honor in any of our AAFES based stores…,”

It’s not the presence of Taliban that’s contested, it’s the fact that you can have playable characters that are the Taliban.

Why would EA want to do this? Of course, it’s likely that they did it to make the game more realistic, but many service men and women may be offended by this.

So you decide is it right to ban such a game from Military stores? Furthermore, what will happen to a soldier if he or she brings the game on base? I think this controversy is just getting started.

      Well, I find it very gratuitous. They sit here and complain about a game, A GAME that have had many others killing U.S. soldiers. Look at Call of Duty, you got guys with towels rapped around their heads and other foreign groups killing soldiers and its never been complained about before. I never heard of a soldier be offended by Call of Duty, but now that its actually refered to as the “taliban” its wrong and etc. Simply have it this way, if it offends you, don’t play it. Its something that is not real, seperate from the real world, and what happens in the game doesn’t affect real life. Now I am not saying it isn’t wrong, but if its really THAT big of a deal, just have them with different names that relatively represent the nations. so then there wouldn’t be any concern.

      I think that it’s very nice of gamestop to do that but can’t people just think of the Taliban as our enemy and it’s a game I play it it’s awesome why should our men and women in service be denied this just because of a name that our enemy goes by it’s stupid and a abuse of power by the military in my mind

      Provost Dr. Tom Burish stated in the release that “While Notre Dame would have preferred to maintain its independence, the financial realities of the world of college football made the decision a necessity.” He also said that “The longstanding tradition of the schools in the Big 10 conference best fit that of the Irish program”, according to reports.

    6. Thanks for the suggestions you have discussed here. Furthermore, I believe there are some factors that keep your auto insurance premium down. One is, to contemplate buying cars and trucks that are in the good listing of car insurance businesses. Cars which might be expensive will be more at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance coverage is also based on the value of your truck, so the more pricey it is, then the higher this premium you only pay.

      SEO is the tool kit, so to speak, used to optimize the inherent data of each individual page within your web page to make it most visible to look. Advertising is key in SEM Search Engine Marketing. SEO and SEM are distinct and equally valuable disciplines, but optimizing a site’s information and associated meta data (SEO) is usually a fantastic first (and cheaper than ads- SEM) option..
