Yeah, funny isn't it - killing "ragheads" or Commies is okay but killing Americans isn't ?   >:(  :P  Reminds me of the old days of Wolfenstein 3D - people had no problems with killing Nazi's, but shooting their dogs was considered cruel and obscene !  ???

I've always liked the old formula - 1 dead American is worth about 10 dead Europeans, 100 dead Asians, 1,000 dead Middle Easterners or 10,000 dead Africans.  Check out the news tonight - I'll bet there'll be a story about 3 dead in some car crash in Pennsylvania, but a boat capsizing in the Phillippines killing 75 won't even rate a mention.

I know that we shouldn't get too political so I'll end my rant now.  :-X


Suffice to say that I don't think that there should be any problem with a mission in which you played "the other side".  To help keep down the flames I agree with the others that for your own sake you should probably name your terroist group al Bundy, al Akazam, al I Qator or something similar.

Nothing like a bit of humour to lighten up the reality of what we're simulating !   :D

PS - As a native born Californian now resident in Australia I'm not saying that we should care less about American deaths, just more about deaths in the rest of the world !

Hey Ryan, I don't think there's any problem with playing against US or NATO forces (although I do get annoyed with the Russian-side missions which lots of people do with the rather unimaginative "capitalist pigs" spiel). Not too sure about blowing up civilians though. Apart from anything else, I'm not sure how the gameplay would be. What about a military depot? Or a political centre?  

I'd totally agree with everyone who's pointed out that OFP is just a game - but there might be things that just aren't fun to do. Like getting back to work, for example, which I really ought to do...

I wouldnt flame you.

Its nice and topical. Just make sure you do your research and get everything perfect.....so you can express the true reasons why these people are committing whatever act they are going to commit, rather than the Western propaganda version of thier reasons......

....this will probably incense those who are going to flame you even more and they will probably brand you an al-queda sypathiser, but those people are the ones that only hear thier own propaganda (like Kuet said, some people dont like the truth and cant accept it even if it did actually happen) and are going to flame you regardless unless you play to thier stereotypes.......

....so go for it.  :)

As someone said before, the game, "Grand Theft Auto" is about being the bad guy and doing bad things. They are things you would never do in real life, but that is what makes it fun.

I think you should keep kill the civilians because it also shows the horror of what the terrorist do. They are there to spread terror, not just to kill Americans.

Also, you should make you political preference neutral because if you have the "Moore" view that the terrorist are just like the American revolutionaries, I could see a lot of gamers quit out of anger. And if you get to dramatic about it, a bunch of people are going to not play at all and just send text messages about how bad or how good Bush is. Keep out of the politics, it can make a fun mission bad.

Dude!
why not try something...different?
After the 1972 olympic attacks in Munich, the Isrealis made a special commando unit. I think they were called the mossad. they were Isreali military, but went into foreign countries, hunted down, and killed suspected terrorists. EVen so, they used terrorist tactics. You can play as a commando (looking like a terrorist) and explode some middle eastern shanty town. :P

@ Hustla

Mossad is the secret service of Israel and not a commando unit, although it's true it's agents carried out assasinations of prominent terrorists.

On its overview, plan, depth of plot & storyline, scripting, gameplay, and cutscenes, like every other mission.  I severly doubt OFPEC mission reviewers would mark something down because they don't agree with it politically.....OFPEC staff are far too professional for that  ;D
