MODERN WARFARE: AN ARCADE FOR WARCRIMES?September 29, 2019
Call of Duty is one of the biggest game franchises ever created, a few months ago Infinity Ward showed off a private demo of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, this got the whole gaming and creator community buzzing with excited as the best game in the call of duty series was being brought back to life.
A trailer was released sometime after and to be honest it looks sick as hell. When I saw the demos, game-play the level of detail I thought “Everyone will be dying to play this game”. I was wrong!
There has been a lot of backlash from the gaming community about how the game looked “too realistic”. But the developers made the community know that this was the direction in which they were headed, they said it would be gritty, mature and realistic.
The game developers wanted to replicate front-line combat, that has been the point of Call of Duty from day one! Honestly if you think the game is too graphic just don’t play it.
There is soo much noise about this online, people constantly complaining about kill streaks simulating war crimes and all sorts of ridiculous assertions. Some people went as far as attacking the game developers for just doing their jobs.
Yes, the game is very graphic, but that’s why there is an age restriction on it, the game developers drew inspiration from the world around us today, with themes that resemble the events happening in Syria and Iraq, the game also has a new graphics engine which uses photogrammetry to scan and reproduce real-world objects that bring the game to life. This is going to be a really good game, I hope everyone can just enjoy it in peace!
