TIGA Statement Regarding Medal Of Honour

Posted By | On 24th, Aug. 2010

TIGA, the Trade Association representing the video games industry today released the following statement regarding the controversy surrounding release of the upcoming Medal of Honour game.

Dr. Richard Wilson, TIGA CEO:

“I can certainly understand why some people feel sensitive about this issue. However, we should remember that some games and indeed other forms of entertainment (such as movies and books) are sometimes set in a contemporary war scenario. The crucial point is that this game is 18 rated so should therefore only be played by a mature adult audience able to understand the difference between a computer game and actual events in Afghanistan. Consumers will be the ultimate judge of this game.”
