Not being a keen follower of gaming anymore, it was surprising to learn that Karachi is a battle map on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
It is the most despecable thing Activision (the creators of this game) have done. All gaming lovers who love Pakistan and Karachi should write protest emails to Activision (firstname.lastname@example.org). Here is the brief description from Call of Duty Wiki on this map.
Karachi is a map in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 set in Karachi, Pakistan.
The factions are the Navy SEALs and the OpFor. It takes place in a town setting. There are many buildings to enter and attack from. The most popular area is made up of an alleyway and two buildings connected by a balcony connected by two ladders.
It appears Activision are acting on some hidden agendas to desensitise people around these things so that if something is planned by some idiots (remember the invasion of Iraq on lies!), people are not shocked.
If this is not the case then Activision should add Washington DC as a map as well… may be it is too naive to think.. they can’t risk the massive domestic US population anger which can affect their sales forever.
What double standards…..
Shame on you Activision.
