Hezbollah brings Israel war to computer screen
It's really amazing to have seen gaming slowly evolve. It started out with fun little games like Pac-Man and Frogger, just perfectly innocent ways to waste your time. Now, you're seeing games with deep storylines, philosophy, and in some cases, a political message. Like this "Special Force 2" game, a sequel to a war game by Hezbollah. While there doesn't seem to be much meaningful about this game; it's in the "Ethnic Cleansing" realm and being marketed to kids, with a message of killing Israelis, it does make you wonder what other kinds of messages games have in store for us.
