    You both misunderstood me:( I'm not against violence in video games (game is rated 18 anyway, so it would be stupid also). You have to look behind the scenes, how things really work. This is not selfless, and definitely not about the solders imho.

    I apologize, Ikaragu, if I took your words wrong. Text on forums in not a very good medium for conveying real meaning.

    In any event, even if EA is doing this for pure PR and trying to fend off critisism, if it help even one returning soldier, of any country ... it's worth the effort. IMO.

    Who do you think deserves the money more? Corrupt politician? wellfare drugggies? drug dealers? or the people that fought to make this country safe and free? Also we can give back to soldiers but not make it public?

    No apology is needed, and perhaps I was the one who said some unwanted words, which wasn't my intention:[ It's an open forum where opinions clash and meet, so if none of us go mental, I think it's OK to have a mature argument.

    I agree that we don't have the time to write a sociologist/philosophical PHD here. The subject is too deep to jump into, but I'm pretty sure they just targeting the right audience with their marketing. It's a PR strategy and it would not work if they would state that they will donate the money to live-donor transplant organization or whatever else. I would never say that it's not a nice move, and I feel for every family affected by the war (I'm not just saying this, I honestly do), but I still think that it's blasphemy to "ride" a cultural phenomenon for PR purposes in such a sensitive subject, even if they are doing it with good intentions, it's just too much for me.

    Stop prosecuting Assange & Manning you losers and liars of "democracy WOW we fucking RULE orgasms" (just in case, I can understand spec ops as a evil necesity, but never publicly support them, as Nazi Germany would have, the world is just wrong wrong wrong and should die now)

    No no. Don't close it. I love to hear the America bashers. All I can ever hear is "WAAAAAA MY COUNTRY SUCKS COMPARED TO AMERICA THEREFORE I MUST HATE ON THEM!" lol Everytime I hear someone bash the US I feel a little more pride in my nation. HATERS GONNA HATE! So PLEASE keep it up guys. The more you cry the higher the Eagle flys.

    No???? We, the non-americans HAVE TO play -if we wanna play- as american marines ALL THE FUCKING TIME. Try to understand, PLEASE, how boring that is, but that would be antiamerican, of course.

    Nothing personal, or national, but just fed up.

    you have no clue, and maybe no age to be here... Why USA needs so much to be loved is a mistery. The British empire didn't need that. Ah, it is because you spend whole day in front of a mirror. lol

    This thread is about a games developer and it's support to US Forces Charities, it is not about Political ambitions, the rights and wrongs of war or US Foreign policy so could we keep on topic please.

    You're right. They just went into a resource rich country and declared it a colony of the British Empire. Killed all who opposed and forced their culture onto the nation (see India). We might go into a country to kick some ass but at the end of the day it's still your country.

    Hrm, I'm not sure if this PR move is enough for me to buy what will surely be a POS game. I think I will just send $50 to my local VFW and support them directly rather than support lame EA.
