Defense Department Maintains Ban on Medal of Honor After Taliban Renaming

Gamers will no longer play as the Taliban in the multiplayer for Electronic Arts' Medal of Honor reboot, but the Defense Department's Army & Air Force Exchange Service has decided it still won't allow its stores to sell the videogame on military bases.

After months of controversy, EA announced on October 1 the Taliban faction had been renamed Opposing Force out of respect to the friends and families of fallen soldiers that expressed concern over the Taliban's inclusion. In a statement released yesterday, AAFES said the renaming hasn't changed its opinion about the game.

What do you think, is this reasonable?


  1. They shouldn't have done that, since the brag about realism and stuff

  2. i can see how its ok to have the Taliban in and i can see how its not ok.

    either way though i do not like censorship.

  3. Aww, I think OpFor is a mighty PC name.

  4. You've made some interesting points... I also have some points (actually bubbles) on Enhanced by MS Paint :)

  5. i think that they should've kept the taliban ingame.

  6. Oh comon!! Where is our freedom? If the game bothers you then DON'T PLAY/BUY's as simple as that.

  7. Stupid Defense department, give me a break... this is Amurrika.
