    It was a great part of the game, like Adam said, doing a sequence like that is a huge step for gaming as an art form. However, video games still aren't accepted by the mainstream as being art, it's just another form of soulless entertainment. I think until gaming does get that kind of recognition controversies such as this will keep on popping up. IW took a bold move, and it's one that in the long run will help people's opinions of games, showing that they too are capable of conveying more messages then just "mindless violence".

    infinity wards ability of story telling and the way they do for the scenes are just incredible. when i hit htat scene i just really hesitated for like a good 5 seconds and struggled on whether or not to pull the trigger.....then i did and shot a few people...even for if it was a game, it still felt realy messed up and i really wanted to get that bad guy. but thats how involved they get you into this game. it's still wierd though how people can get offended for having modern warfare have that scene when in gta4, you you can hit civilians with a bat, or shoot them, or blow them up and it doesn't get the same attention...then again this could be a different situation or not... anyways keep up the soapbox adam...it's damn good work..damn good

    I liked how it affects the story. I couldn't bring myself to shoot anyone though.

    hey, let us know when ur debate airs, i wanna see it. im glad IW took this risk. someone had to do it eventually, and it had to be someone who could do it right. finally, we can really make progress on the the establishment of videogames as an art, and that they dont always have to be "fun."

    I completely agree on thier right to do it. My only worry is if they really should of done it. It's sad, but the extreme amount of damage this is going to do to the gaming community needed to being weighed against it. Though the one thing I take from this that sort of amuses me is that Fox News is completely ignoring Dragon Age this time around after the Mass Effect fiasco, when there is a lot more going on in DAO. Just the stuff you can do in the Pearl, let alone all your relationships with party members, and they haven't even seemed to care.
