Upstairs, open the last door to find a woman who is not asked to shoot. If you stop for a moment, she falls for a gun. And ‘them or you. This is a scenario in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the latest edition of one of the video games of the most successful franchises. If this version million fire from fans of the game, they will find something very different games of the past: a single player campaign, which is in front of the global war on terrorism is a gripping and emotionally difficult representation of life. It is an important starting point for the franchise and for Activision and developer Infinity Ward publishers, too big risk. Players who want to look for Escapism video games that come with the moral and ethical dilemmas of real conflict to put aside? Or you prefer to stick with cartoon shooter that only wonder how Fortnite and see which players can sit down and have a good time lobbing rockets and mortars digital each other? Modern Warfare creators are betting that the players mature adults ready for a shot. “No one who believes 18 is these days, that war is won easily,” says Jacob Minkoff, who led the design history at Infinity Ward studio. “You want a war story living their experiences in a world that is, which has been all his life in the war.” Activision has plenty riding if the right to Minkoff.

Rather, the point is to say something meaningful about the complexities of modern warfare. “No bad sees himself as a criminal,” says Taylor Kurosaki, Studio Director narrative of Infinity Ward. How Call of Duty players react to this incarnation of the year with its ambitious, deciding adults approach the matter a step forward for this show was profitable business, how come once again under the cultural microscope. The game has a favorite subject of parents and experts parties were also continue as debates rage for the connection, or lack thereof, between video games and shooting in the real world. A game that creepy realistic and could strengthen the case of those who have criticized the influence of violent games. But addressing these problems through, Modern Warfare could no longer true horrors of terrorism and armed force to light to glorify it.
