Semantic Change Evicts Taliban from Medal of Honor Game

| | Comments (0)
Electronic ArtsElectronic Arts and its studio Danger Close have been taking a lot of heat for allowing players to take on the role of the Taliban in its upcoming Medal of Honor game. They finally caved to the pressure, and have removed "Taliban" from the game. They haven't changed the game substantively, or even changed the appearance of the former Taliban side. They have, however, removed the word "Taliban." The former Taliban forces will be known simply as the "Opposing Force." In a statement on the game's blog, Greg Goodrich (Executive Producer of the game) wrote, "...because the heartbeat of Medal of Honor has always resided in the reverence for American and Allied soldiers, we have decided to rename the opposing team in Medal of Honor multiplayer from Taliban to Opposing Force."
