Why I don’t have the stomach for ‘Battlefield 1’

Recently, the video games community in general has been pushing for a more traditional setting for first person shooter game. People have been asking for a return to the previous settings of World War 1 and 2

Somewhat surprisingly, I have always felt that this is a bit tasteless. It has never sit well with me when I am gunning down people that are… well, representative of real people. People that are alive today.

I used to think I was alone in this, but I stumbled onto an article over at Engadget.com that puts what I have been unable to express quite nicely.

Have a read & let me know what you think.
