Controversial video game hits store shelves

By Brooke Kelley - bio | email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The video game "Medal of Honor" by Electronic Arts hit the store shelves on Tuesday. The game lets players pretend to be opposing fighters shooting U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

WTOC spoke to one veteran who says this new game is an insult to him and all military men and women.

"I think it's nuts to make it seem so easy and fun and cool to go to Afghanistan and kill soldiers, kill each other and it makes the young fools of our nation programmed. They think killing and going overseas is cool and it's not fun," said Veteran Curtis Nagy.

U.S. Military officials have decided not to stock the game in any of the nearly 300 base exchange shops or the Gamestop stores located on military bases.
