Report – Medal of Honor yanked from GameStop military stores

Thursday, 2 September 2010 21:09 GMT By Johnny Cullen


All GameStop stores on US military bases are to stop taking pre-orders for Medal of Honor, according to a Kotaku report.

The site claims all stores in military bases will stop taking orders for the EA shooter as of midday today in the US.

It’s being pulled as the player is able to play as the Talliban in the game’s multiplayer, with the decision made “out of respect for our past and present men and women in uniform,” according to an internal GameStop memo obtained by the site.

Any serving military personal that wishes to have the game will have to buy it in an off-site store.

“As such, GameStop agreed to have all marketing material pulled by noon today and to stop taking reservations. Customers who enter our AAFES stores and wish to reserve Medal of Honor can and should be directed to the nearest GameStop location off base,” the memo further reads.

“GameStop fully supports AAFES in this endeavor and is sensitive to the fact that in multiplayer mode one side will assume the role of Taliban fighter.”

Medal of Honor releases on October 12 in the US, and October 15 in the UK for PS3, 360 and PC.

    That is some next level faggotry induced political correctness. Of course, one would wonder why if your a soldier fighting the Taliban, why you’d want to play a game as a soldier fighting the Taliban. That would be like a dishwasher coming home after a shift at work and playing a game where you’re a dishwasher.

    I don’t see how that’s all that unreasonable, though.

    I don’t know how American military bases work, but chances are there are gonna be guys who lost buddies and had some bad experiences walking around, possibly even wounded. PTSD isn’t a fun thing to deal with, and it’s not as if they can’t just order it online and have it sent to their homes.

    for serious, i think it’s just a marketing campaign.

    Really. I mean, after that news i so want to buy that just to know what the shit is in the campaign.

    the comedy is right here, so basically to shoot Russians is kinda OK in games (No Russian), but something with Afghanistan or Iraq is BAD, very Bad.

    R E T A R D S !

    PS: I think if someone will make a game where Iraq will attack US we will see game banned in USA, i’m sure.

    I don’t understand how they can get away with publishing MoH and yet not long ago a different game was canned about Fallujah (forgotten it’s bloody name now!).

    EDIT: 6 days in Fallujah

    #6 4 years ago
  7. Gekidami

    I think its because 6 Days in Fallujah was based off an actual battle that happened. Whilst MoH does have the Taliban in it and its based durring a real war, i dont think any of the battles in the game are ones that have really happened.

    There’s a big difference between pulling a game from military bases and pulling it from regular distribution.

    Chances are that not many people will have been in an airport where people were being gunned down by Russian terrorists. In a US military base, the odds of people having encountered taliban is a bit higher, I do believe.

    80-90% of all soldiers who’ve seen combat experience symptoms of PTSD, which is a very painful condition. It goes away by itself in 85% of the cases, but the remaining 15% are probably gonna be living their lives with a mental illness, some of which will commit suicide.

    I think that’s a pretty good argument not to shove these kinds of games in their faces.

    This is pretty stupid and pointless. Sure, Afgan War is a current conflict but so is the stealing and murdering in the streets of cities around the world. By this logic, urban GameSpot stores should yank GTA games as well.

People here would go Crazy and it would be all over the News and be boycotted…So I don’t really see the difference.

    Just to clarify, games cannot be literally banned in the United States for any reason. (Well, there’s an infinitesimal chance a game could one day be banned for sex or violence and the ban not struck down by the courts, but not for anything like this.)

    This is Gamestop, in conjunction with the US Army, deciding what will be for sale on its base stores. The military is a law unto itself, particularly overseas.

    I guess just because you can make a game about this, the question is do you want to?? Is it appropriate or respectful at this time??? The people behind 6 days in Fullujah didn’t think so, or the people putting it on discs, publisher.

    I would have just loved to have been in the PR meeting where they said…”Ok…You get to be an Afghanistan or Taliban Terrorists, and get to walk up behind an American Soldier and Knife them in the base of the head, or blow their head off, and you get XP, Unlocks and Rewards for being a Terrorists!!”

    This Game should Sell like Hot Cakes in Afghanistan…Oh wait the Taliban Bans Video games…Hmmmm I wonder who the Terrorists MP component is geared to???

    I kinda agree with GameSpots decision in this one.

    This isn’t just people “get their pants in a twist.” This are soldiers who have been directly involved in the wars themselves, and have probably seen a few horrors some of us would never be able to handle.

    In the multiplayer, one side will be the Taliban, killing American soldiers. That’s probably hitting a little too close to home for some people, and fairly so.

    What people fail to realize when making a game,movie,book related about true events with the American Military especially the shady things or anything that portrays the American Military in a bad way. The US government steps in and tells the publishers or studios they will not be allowed to distribute the game,movie, book.

    #17 4 years ago
  18. Michael O’Connor

    @17 I honestly don’t think this has anything to do with portraying the military in a bad way. The Medal of Honour series has always been respectful of that sort of thing.

    This purely has to do with being sensitive to an issue that many people in the military are a little too intimately familiar with.

    Hypocrit as hell, and sure the war ain’t nice for the soldiers. But at the same time, what the hell is true nowadays? One thing i do believe, alot are lies and is exeggerated. Taliban? I for one wouldn’t be surprised at all if they didn’t even exist. Osama Bin Laden? Do they actually think people fall for it? Oh i bet alot of Americans did. But its no secret that there are plenty of pictures showing a completely different person and yet they claimed it was Osama.

    The ‘We’ve got him video’ of Hussein? 100% fake! And i can go on and on. MOH has Taliban as selectable team? Big fucking deal. Keep in mind i’m not saying i don’t believe any of this is true, but neither do i believe it all like a ‘mindless drone’ the media is full of shit and America lies ALOT! Exactly what the hell are they still doing in those countries? Sigh….

    I say its nonsense about this hitting alittle too close to home. What about all the other War shooters then? Americans shooting Vietcong in games, wouldn’t that hit alittle close too home for those people as well? Nah, it’s a game and nothing but a game.

    Just getting kinda tired of it all. As soon as its about something that is ‘against’ America, its evil and should be banned. And i can’t stand that kind of hypocrisy. Ban Medal of honor? Go right ahead, but also ban ALL the other war shooters then, it’s that simple. Cause i’m sure alot is offensive in those games to other people then as well.

    You don’t have to believe me though, but i can show you the video where it’s obvious that the ‘we’ve got him’ video is fake as hell. And i ask again, exactly what is America still doing in those countries? Not sure if you are trying to ridicule me with that little comment, but i don’t mind. I rather not believe everything that is said to me by the media and what not. I’ll do my own research, and i keep an open mind. But again, the hypocrisy in all this is laughable.

    They want to get rid of MOH? Get rid of COD too then, get rid of Battlefield ,get rid of any war game really then. He’ll, simply ban practically every PS3 and 360 game cause they are full of violence and i’m sure offensive to plenty of people, naw…its nonsense.

I don’t think a Nazi Video Game existed during the Nazi War where you got to be the Nazi at the same time the war was going on??? Could be wrong on that?

  23. OlderGamer

    Some of you folks just don’t get it.

    I also agree that the US Military has the right to ask the game to be removed. And agree that gamestop did the right thing by removing it – kudos to them, btw.

    First up I am a Military Family. Wife served. not me. We were married at the time. She was Air Force, my Dad, uncle, and grandad were Army.

    I can gaurentee you that the removle of this game was pushed for by the people in the ranks of the service, and not the higher ups. The soliders, airmen, shipmen, and their families most likly felt moved enough on the issue and started the ball rolling.

    And as far as, some of you not understanding how it works … that is how it works. Games don’t get banned. Our Gov doesn’t mandate crap like that. But our people sometimes do.

    Its public opinion.

    Its why some stores won’t carry some games, wal-mart comes to mind. They are worried about public opinion. Public backlash. Say Gamestop doesn’t remove the game. Then what?

    Then the morning news is covering 10 people standing outside their stores with signs. Then 10 turn to 50 to 150 as exposure grows. And they(gamestop) have a problem.

    There is a difference between being censorship free and understanding your following accepted social norms. Majority rules, after all. When in Rome, do as the Romens do. That type of thing.

    If the very same people that GS is trying to sell the game to, are outraged and upset, then it becomes in GSs best interest to remove the game as requested.

    In my opinion the game is indeed in bad taste. I am glad they removed it. And I understand why military families reacted the way they did. Think about the threat, the sacrifice, and the already staggering losses these folks have faced and continue to face. Now look at the video game. A toy. A piece of medium that attempts to entertain at the expense of those whom have lost brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, Sons and daughters.

    And for what? A video game?

    There are other video games on the shelf.

    And if anyone, military or not, feels it is worth their time and investment to own said game … they may do so.

    #23 4 years ago
  24. frostquake

    I agree with SuperOldGamer….If public opinion goes in the toilet then places like Wal-Mart are the first to Bail out…All it will take is a news outlet like Glenn Beck or Fox getting their hands on this and then BOOM…All they will talk about is the fact you get to be a Taliban Terrorists killing Americans..and KER-POW…No Retailer will touch it with a 10 foot pole…that is why I am SOOOOOO Shocked that they did it.

    I figured we would get a game after the conflict was done, maybe 5-20 years after, not during the actual conflict!!

    @23 Well said, O.G.. You’re always a great voice for reason on this forum. Comes with age I guess. =P

    I agree on everything you said, except the last point.

    “A toy. A piece of medium that attempts to entertain at the expense of those whom have lost brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, Sons and daughters.”

    I think E.A. has enough respect for the source for this not to happen. They have always worked closely with the military with the Medal of Honour franchise, and its purpose has always been to be respectful of the war.

    I don’t think they’re going to undermine that with this game, or make it as utterly soulless as a franchise like Call of Duty is. If there’s any game that mocks the memories of those people, it’s that.

    Everything else? Couldn’t have put it better myself.

    Look, these soldiers are fucking adults, if they’re offended and don’t want to play the game, they don’t have to, but banning it goes against what we’re over their fighting for, like censorship and others telling us how to live and what we can’t have.

    Also, someone ban that douche-fag spam bot, please. I’m sick of seeing these asshat spambots attack and defile every forum I go to nowadays. They need to make a game where we can kill the people who make those damned things.

    #26 4 years ago
  27. OlderGamer

    DarkElfa your are entitled to your opinion. And you are entitled to express it. I can respect that.

    But no where in my reads, here, on Kotako, or with the AAFES did anyone use the word BAN. No one is banning the game. Not the military and not the US Gov.

    The AAFES requested to Gamestop that the game not be sold on the military bases.

    “with the decision made “out of respect for our past and present men and women in uniform,” according to an internal GameStop memo obtained by the site.”

    Gamestop responded to that request with careful consideration, I am sure.

    It is not as if armoured vehicles pulled up to gamestop stores and removed advertising material by gun point. Not like they threatend to close the stores unless they stopped selling the game.

    They requested.

    And just for info, Gamestop is allowed to be on base with permision. They had to pettition for and recieve the privilage to be allowed there. A US Military base is not the same kind of general public as your local stripe mall.

    It is deffently in GS best interest to listen to that request.

    I also bet dollers to doughnuts more family members of said soldiers were the ones offended. Most likly this was a quick growing grass roots effort, that someone brought to the attention of the higher ups.


    “I think E.A. has enough respect for the source for this not to happen. They have always worked closely with the military with the Medal of Honour franchise, and its purpose has always been to be respectful of the war.”

  28. freedoms_stain

    It seems like an entirely pointless exercise.

    They’re not preventing people from playing the game on base, just from buying it on base, which is basically just wasting the time of the people who are going to get the game anyway.

    If it’s an issue of a box (which features no Taliban) and promotional materials keep em under the freakin desk, sell em in brown paper packages (like porn).

    Bans are pointless (yes it IS a ban, it’s a ban on people buying MoH on bases, plain and simple) and this one even more so than most.

    Kinda strange, since MoH is no different then other modern wargame with the exception that they are being honest. They aren’t putting on thinly veiled politcly correct nonsense.

    We’ve been putting soldiers against terrorists in the middel east since Counter Strike, now it’s suddenly not okay? All because they decided made up names are stupid?

    If you think that’s censorship, then you don’t understand the meaning of the word.

    If you go to any mental ward you’ll see that there are a lot of items missing from the shop inventory. That’s not because they deliberately want to distort reality even further for the people who are there, that’s because some things are simply too much for mentally ill people to handle.

    The same thing goes for a game that lets you play as the taliban being sold at a military base. I get the sense that a lot of people here have never even seen or talked to a soldier home from the war. Seeing a game like that, and knowing what it is, can ruin their whole day or their whole week. For a mentally ill person, that’s a big deal.

    You might be a cynical douchebag and be like “Fuck those veterans, they can stay out of game stores” which is obviously a wonderfully sympathetic point of view towards people who probably performed more – physically and mentally – in 6 months than you will your entire life, but personally I think people suffering like that, regardless of why, deserve to be cut some slack whenever possible.

    I have an Uncle who was in Veitnam, and he can’t even be in the same room when his kids start playing War Shooters. All his brothers and sisters, say he is a completely different person then when he went! He was happy go lucky, life of the party, after..he is serious and quick to anger and hates all functions.

    The Only story I ever heard him tell of the war, was when he got up to go pee in a Vietnamese Hut Camp, and a little naked girl ran up to 4 of his buddies with a shoe box, and they thought they were getting a gift from her, and when they opened it, it exploded and killed all 4 of them, and he got their blood and brains on his skin and face.

    So I understand him getting up and leaving the room and not wanting to be around a War shooter when it reminds you of pulling 4 of your best friends brains out of your hair… :(

    Worth reading for people who still don’t get it.

    @33 We have those guys here too, from Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s a real mess. Some of them just move out into the woods so they don’t have to be anywhere near people or newspapers or tv or any of that stuff.

    A guy from my town was told to fire on a kid in Afghanistan, purely because of the rules of engagement in the zone his team was covering (Defining that any person in the area would be regarded as a spotter for taliban). Of course he cited the Geneva Convention and blankly refused the order, but it really fucked him up mentally.

    I don’t see any good reason why you’d insist on shoving those games in soldiers faces. You don’t sell japanese rape simulators in a battered womens’ shelter.
