Cuba is not happy
Assassinate Castro and you move on to the next level. Yep, that seems to be the premise of everyone's favorite new video game "Call of Duty: Black Ops". Sure it's just a video game, but did they really have to use the real Fidel Castro? I thought video games usually add characters which resemble us in real life, maybe its a hint.
I can completely understand why CUBA would be mad but you have to think, it's a video game. Video games are meant to be fun and time wasters; not "live my life according to the game". However, according to a Fox News article, "Scenes like that and others drew harsh criticism Wednesday from Cuba, which said the new video game was violent, glorified the assassination -- and will turn American children into sociopaths." Sociopaths though? First off, if you don't want your kids playing these games, don't buy it for them. Second, if a video game influences your life then I suggest you rethink your life.
