Military Stores Still Won’t Carry Medal of Honor

Despite EA’s caving in and changing the name of the Taliban in Medal of Honor, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service still will not allow the game to be sold in stores on military posts.

AAFES’s Commander Maj. Gen. Bruce Casella said, “Out of respect to those touched by the ongoing, real-life events presented as a game, Exchanges will not be carrying this product. I expect the military families who are authorized to shop the Exchange are aware, and understanding, of the decision not to carry this particular offering.”

This statement came after the AAFES conducted a review of the changes EA made to the game. In short, EA made a superficial change to the game that angered many gamers, detracted from the game, and did absolutely nothing to get them back ‘on post.’ Plus, it woke up stupid Jack Thompson.

Now the only question is how long it will take for a community mod to be released that renames the opposition as the Taliban. The current pool here at FileFront is 24 hours.

Do you have the game? Did you smuggle it onto a military base? We’ve got everything you need at our info page, and a full step-by-step walkthrough.

Games are games. Stop putting blame on video games cause your to much of a to admit that you’re a narrow minded .

Video games are supposed to be for entertainment and fun. Nothing more. Did none of you idiots learned that with mortal kombat and the blood in that game back in the day? Didn’t think so. Hey maybe I’ll go out and rip someones spine out of there body from there head.

It was in mortal kombat so I must obey it, cause the video game said so!

Wow, that is just proof that developers should never buckle under public pressure. There’s just no point, nothing is won, and their integrity is lost.

So much for being developed in cooperation with Special Forces.

The game is a fail mod of an already fail game anyway.

Unless you serve in the military and have been in these situations it is easy to mock MG Casella and his team of advisors in their decision to preserve the heroism of my brothers at arms. FPS will make money, developers will continue to push the envelope, but Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Coasties, and Marines will forever be haunted by the realism of war and the images that this game will revitalize. Many will experience flashbacks and other ill effects from this game. Instead of not seeing the bigger picture, play the game–enjoy, and support our troops and the decision of those in office to make a hard choice over an easy wrong. God Bless our Troops–Until They All Come Home. Hooah!!
