Konami Cancels Fallujah War Game Amid Protests


Gamers have been fighting against censorship in the gaming industry for some time, and sadly, it seems self-censorship is a road developers are willing to take. Protests against the announcement of Konami’s Six Days in Fallujah has caused the company to cancel the game, a sad state of affairs.

The controversy stems from the game’s very real setting, based on the bloodiest battle of the Iraq war. Regardless of you personal feelings, consider the power a group of people have who have never seen or played the game before can have. It’s disgusting, deplorable, and something that should never happen in this country. Thanks for nothing Konami.
