Cuban officials are outraged at the mission in Black Ops that involves trying to assassinate former Cuban president Fidel Castro. A government-run cubadebate website, has taken a dig at the game for glorifying attempts on the former governor’s life, who has frequently been the victim of such attacks.
“What the United States government did not achieve in more than 50 years, it now tries to do virtually,” reads the statement.
"This new video game is doubly perverse. On the one hand, it glorifies the illegal assassination attempts the United States government planned against the Cuban leader … and on the other, it stimulates sociopathic attitudes in North American children and adolescents."
We thought the whole "violent video games cause violent sociopaths" tendencies debate was dead and buried, but this will spark it back up again. Do you think Cuba is right to be upset?
Right, we're off to stealthily track down a grey-haired, bearded fellow with our crossbow.
