So, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 isn't even out yet, and it's already generating tons of controversy over leaked information regarding its opening sequence. I certainly can't say that the industry I work in isn't exciting.

I can understand why there's going to be a lot of controversy over this one, though. It's actually pretty disturbing, but to prevent anyone reading who wanted to play Modern Warfare 2 from being spoiled, gonna put it under a cut from here on out. If you like gaming/storytelling in games/controversy, I'd really welcome your input, though. I'm curious to see what everyone else thinks.

TL;DR ahead )

I see what they're trying to do here, and I'm going to defend them against the "You've gone too far!" crowd because I think that games SHOULD be given a chance to become a serious narrative medium. But I'll be damned if it doesn't make me uncomfortable to think about doing it.
