I could see how people get offended. But it really isn't directed towards them, and I wouldn't call killing soldiers in the name of the fun, as they are pixels, and they call us taking a game too seriously. Just like books and movies, games tell us a story. This story just happens to be of the Taliban, and how the creators of the game thing it would be to be a Taliban. I think that them banning it is too far. But then again, they shouldn't be allowing us to play as the bad guys while the current issue is still going on. But if I get around to it, I'll play as that side anyway. It's not going to change my view on America, it's probably not going to change my view on the Taliban.
