EA Starts Medal of Honor Charity for Fallen Soldiers

EA has started a new program to generate awareness and charitable contributions to fallen Special Operations soldiers, titled "Project Honor." The program is a marketing tie-in with the upcoming Medal of Honor Warfighter, but it's also planning some smart ways to benefit military charities. Various weapon and gear manufacturers will donate to the Navy SEAL Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Their products will be featured in Warfighter, and they'll also be selling Medal of Honor merchandise with 100% of the proceeds going to one of the listed charities. In addition, EA and Danger Close will be selling a "Military Edition" of the game made exclusively for active, reserve, and former US military. It includes the Limited Edition with some exclusive unlocks. If you fit that bill, you can check out the GovX site for ordering details.

"This partnership with EA and Medal of Honor will raise awareness on the work we do to help the families of fallen Special Operations warriors and facilitate contributions that help provide college scholarships for surviving children and financial assistance to families of severely wounded special operations warriors," said Special Operations Warrior Foundation president John T. Carney, Jr., in the announcement. "This is a great way to give back to some of our country’s greatest warriors."

The last Medal of Honor wasn't even that bad. It was fun. I only played the single player, and although it was short I liked the theme of "fight todays war"

You are right, I do miss the days when multiplayer was not the focal point.

I have a friend who says that games are pointless without multiplayer. Which is so wrong because there are so many games out there that are so good, that don't have multiplayer and don't need it. For instance Half Life 2

Hey, that's cool. Any time a huge corporation like EA volunteers to give some of their profits away to charity is a good thing. Who cares how good or how shitty the game is? Who really give a fuck about this being purely a PR move on their part? They are breaking north with what will likely be a large chunk of money for a good cause. Sure, it's a combination PR/tax write off move, but the money is going to help deployed, injured or returning troops.

They are and were fighting a war in another country, whether they wanted to be there or not. For that they have my eternal respect.

You can bash my nation all you want to, I don't care. For all the bad that you perceive my nation as doing, my nation is by far the most charitable country on this very planet. Hell, we're the most charitable nation in the solar system.
