An anonymous reader writes “Thom ‘SSGTRAN’ Tran, seen in the Call of Duty: Black Ops live action trailer and in the game as the NVA multiplayer character, gets interviewed and talks about Medal of Honor’s Taliban drama. ‘… to me, it’s a non-issue. This is Hollywood. This is entertainment. There has to be a bad guy if there’s going to be a good guy. It’s that simple. Regardless of whether you call them — “Taliban” or “Op For” — you’re looking at the same thing. They’re the bad guys.’” Gamasutra published a related story about military simulation games from the perspective of black ops veteran and awesome-name-contest winner Wolfgang Hammersmith. “In his view, all gunfights are a series of ordered and logical decisions; when he explains it to me, I can sense him performing mental math, brain exercise, the kind that appeals to gamers and game designers. Precise skill, calculated reaction. Combat operations and pistolcraft are the man’s life’s work.”
