1. This is entertainment, nothing else. Playing video games my kids and I have been a Nazi, a hitman, a goblin from the Lord of the Rings, a demon lord, a Ninja assassin and Darth Vader. So what? These are fantasy roles.
I am certain (because I play these games) that the Taliban is being used in a villain role. The Taliban in video games are cartoon characters... although they have the name of a real militant group, the video game version will have very little similarity to the real Taliban.
This is fiction.
2. Your outrage isn't costing them any money. Sure, you wont buy the game. This only matters to EA games if you buy bloody video games in the first place.
3. You are helping EA games earn more money. There are 59 views to this thread so far, multiply this by similar outrage on other forums and newscasts. This type of controversy adds to the hype of the game. Somewhere some marketing executive at EA games loves you.
4. There is no connection between EA games (a western profit-making company that any religious fundamentalist would oppose) and the Taliban. I am familiar with this type of game... they certainly are using the Taliban as a villain.
People buying this game are supporting a company that makes rather enjoyable video games.
5. The idea that someone can learn to be a terrorist by repeatedly pushing the "X" button on a Playstation controller is laughable. These are entertainment games. The idea that you could learn to build a bomb from a video game, when you wouldn't be able to Google it and find it on any number of websites designed to teach bomb making, is laughable.
6. This is a free speech matter.
I hope you see the irony that it is freedom
that allows EA games to make these video games (which are protected by the 1st amendment).
I bet the Taliban would agree with you that EA games should be banned.
