Chinese FPS video game turns America into the 'bad guys'

May 18, 2011 | Posted by: Iria | Full story: www.examiner.com

It's a new first-person shooter military game, in the vein of America's Army, but with a twist. In Glorious Mission, Americans are the bad guys.

There is some concern that the game could lead young, impressionable gamers to believe that the United States is the enemy.

The united states is the enemy. They have sold this country to the highest, and often, the lowest bidder for their own greedy wants and needs.

Communist China is molding it's military to oppose the United States. So why would some be surprised that a video game reflects that fact?

U.S video games has always portrayed other Countries as the enemy - China, Russia, Middle East, Cuba, etc.
So why not other Countries portray the U.S as the enemy? When other Countries play U.S games they're probably killing their own people. It works both ways and its just a game.

Back when I was a kid and children still had imaginations, we played Army. We fought and killed every nationality under the sun, but we never turned on our own country. Even then, it was just a game but we knew enough to defend our own.
really

are you telling me you never played resistance when you were a child? i pity you.

on another note that game looks awesome. like a chinese call of duty with more propaganda. and for once i am glad your not playing some ranger or SAS or spetznaz guy fighting to destroy some nukes that keep getting stolen like air jordans in a school lockeroom. its gets tedious and repetitive about a thousand games later.
