Red Cross Calls on Military Video Games to Show Punishment for War Crimes
The Red Cross is calling for there to be real-world-style consequences in the ever-more realistic military shooter video games like Call of Duty, Battlefield and Medal of Honor for players who violate the rules of war. International Committee of the Red Cross spokesman Bernard Barrett said, “We’re not asking for censorship, we don’t want to take any elements out of the games. We’re not trying to make games boring or preachy, but we’re hoping that the ones that offer a realistic portrayal of a modern battlefield can incorporate some sort of reward or penalties depending on whether they follow the basic rules of armed conflict.” Barrett didn’t name any of the video games as he explained, “It’s just making it more realistic, the same way the military has rules on the battlefield, then gamers have the same rules.” The Red Cross is concerned that game situations like torture sequences, shooting civilians and killing prisoners can trivialize war crimes, and worries that doing so could open the door for those actions to be considered acceptable in real-life armed conflicts.
