I can't bring myself to say, 'Well, I guess I'll be toddling along.' It isn't that I can't toddle. It's just that I can't guess I'll toddle.

Let me draw the rest of you into a debate between my sister and I.

My sister dislikes violent games, but in particular WWII re-enactment games like Metal of Honor or Call to Duty. She feels the games are very disrespectful, making light of the risks and losses of those that took part and profiting from them.

I, on the other hand think the games are fun and graphically demostrate the dangers involved (how far can you go in any given FPS war simulator with out dying?). And yes there are profits made, but is it any different from live re-enactments done for the amusement of an audience? Or for that matter, war movies?
