All the buzz in the gaming world right now surrounds a game entitled Modern Warfare 2, which is shaping up to be a massive blockbuster hit. It’s another game in the Call of Duty franchise, which has split into two branches–the traditional Call of Duty line set in the World War II era, and the Modern Warfare line set in current times. Like clockwork, you can expect a new Call of Duty game every year. The Onion already has the scoop on Modern Warfare 3, and as the kids say, it looks straight up dope!
As The Onion always manages in their best pieces, this “news” item is “funny because it’s true”. Hardcore gamers are always pressing for more realism from their games. Well now you’ve got it! Have fun polishing your boots and waiting your turn at the community phone in Modern Warfare 3.
Sometimes I wonder if we’re all too desensitized to the realities of war by movies and games glorifying it. Then I slap myself and go back to playing some awesome shoot-em-ups.
