“This is disgusting”: COD MW3 was sharply criticized by the former screenwriter Valve

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is going through no better times, even compared to other Cod series games. In particular, the MW3 campaign was seriously criticized, and the latest data on the number of players indicate that the multiplayer hardly holds positions at the Modern Warfare 2 level, despite the changes made to the mode "zombie" And Warzone.

And now, when the annual action from Activision is in full swing, even Falishki, the legendary former screenwriter Valve, who worked on Half-Life 2, Left 4 Dead, Portal, Portal 2 and Left 4 Dead 2, applied to Call of Duty developers with a statement that one of the aspects of the latest version of COD is "exploiting" And "disgusting".

According to PCGAMESN, the anger of a former Valve employee was caused by one of "posthumous quotes", Which, in his opinion, was clearly inappropriate: we are talking about Rosa Parks, a well -known activist of civil rights, who refused to give way to the bus to a white man. And in this case, such a mention was used to propagate the scenes of violence, which, of course, did not really like Falishku very much.

On weekends, I played Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 in a solitary campaign with shooting in the face. However, I was not able to do it so well, and I died. And then a quote from the famous activist Rosa Parks caught my eye.

Then Falishki gives a screenshot from Cod Modern Warfare 3, on which a quote of Parks, one of the central figures of the American civil rights movement, appears in Call of Duty after your death. "Awareness of the done eliminates fear", – says in the quote of Parks.

Dear team Call of Duty, I understand. You think: "She has a wonderful quote, this is a civil rights fighter, let’s draw attention to her". No. This is operation. It’s disgusting. To the abomination that is happening in your play with shots in the face, Rosa Parks has nothing to do with. No need to bring it as a posthumous quote. Just don’t.

I must admit, this is a very strange solution: you could probably choose more suitable examples for the context of the game, instead of almost glorifying the war by quotes from the lives of people who really fought for improving the lives of everyone.

In any case, this is only one of many problems because of which the average Modern Warfare 3 score on Metacritic seems to confirm that this is the worst part in the history of Call of Duty. And if we take into account that, according to rumors and reports of the press, the development was carried out in a hurry, because it should have just been DLC, then everything becomes quite logical.
