Medal of Honor Banned By US Military
The Army and Air Force Exchange Services confirmed that no store located on an Army or Air Force bases will be able to sell the reboot. That ban includes 49 GameStops located across the continental U.S., and to all military bases worldwide.
In an email sent out to employees, GameStop said they will be pulling all marketing material relating to the game from those stores. Customers wishing to reserve a copy of Medal of Honor will be directed to an off base GameStop location. -1up
The only response to this kind of knee-jerk reaction is to slowly shake you head and wonder just what goes on inside the head of your average American. Please, anyone offended by the idea of ‘having’ to play on the side of the feared Taliban, just stop and engage your brain for a moment. Firstly, you don;t have to play this game. Secondly, playing this game, and running the risk of being on the Teliban side during an online game does not make you a terrorist. It does not mean you are sympathetic to their cause. It’s only a friggen game.
