I read the article, I found it a good read. A lot of reasonable arguments even including why they choose to do video games and not movies or books. Also what they would like seen done.
Apart from one thing, one of the games they used was Call of Duty: World At War, which is based in World War II. The Geneva Conventions, which they used as a base for this, didn't exist in current form at that point.
They were updated drastically because of WWII and have been updated several times since.
The headline and blurb here is completely misleading (as per usual), this is seeing if the content in the games would constitute a war crime if it happened in the real world.
Driving games have done this for years, its not unreasonable.
It said game makers should work harder to remind players about the real world limits on their actions.
Support developers and go buy brand new games.
