    EA Pulls Taliban Characters From Latest Medal Of Honor Game

    I'm not sure how I feel about this yet. I'd like to hear a bit more from current and past military persons about this decision by EA Games to remove the name Taliban from the game.

    Plans to let players control Taliban fighters in the highly anticipated "Medal of Honor" video game have been scrapped amid harsh criticism from military officials and others.

    Game publisher Electronic Arts said Friday that it has decided to remove the name "Taliban" from one of the forces in the multiplayer version of the game, which focuses on modern-day fighting in Afghanistan.

    it's a game about Afghanistan. if you want to fight as them, why not?

    I played the 1st beta and never noticed you played the Taliban. Does it matter if you play the op-for or the mec in bf2 they are all the terrorist type faction. That said I don't think removing the name changes the game at all or anyone's artistic freedom.

    That sounds exactly like what they did with America's Army. If they're just changing the name, I don't think it really matters.
