Makers of "Modern Warfare 3" Ask: What War Should Be Glamorized Next?
After the immense success of the Call of Duty series, developer Infinity Ward announced recently that they are running out of wars to glamorize. "We've done World War II to death, Afghanistan, Iraq, even Vietnam. We now ask our fans to send us feedback on what war they want glamorized next. We would also like to explain that our titles don't necessarily glamorize war, but that we just stated that because it will keep parent groups off of our backs."
E-mails with suggestions have flooded Infinity Ward since the announcement, most of which consist of phrases such as "I like to blow up stuff" and "kill 'em all". One gamer writes, "just gimme a game where I can blow shit up and shoot people, I don't care who they are. I'm not picky."
Infinity Ward has also reported that should gamers fail to come up with a conflict soon, plans are underway for titles such as "Call of Duty: Mall Cop" and "Call of Duty: Hall Monitor".
