Moscow Airport Bombing: Connection to Modern Warfare 2 Justified?

Following on from the Moscow Airport bombing tragedy which occured earlier this week, a Russian news channel has made a controversial link to Activision’s popular online shooter Modern Warfare 2, in which an terrorist style, airport scene occurs.

We wouldn’t usually comment on things like this, but we know you’ll want to have your say on this, particularly since the airport scene featured in Modern Warfare 2 came under criticism in the first place.

Is it really fair though to compare a real-life situation with a video game? Because in reality, it is just that – a game. Yes, gamers are given the option to gun down civilians in a barbaric fashion during the game, but that doesn’t mean that what occured earlier this week at the Moscow airport is in any way influenced by Modern Warfare 2.

Activision are yet to respond to the report by Russia Today, but we have a feeling they’ll be making their thoughts heard soon. The report even suggests that terrorist groups use Modern Warfare 2 to ‘train’, which again is a pretty bold statement. Watch the video below for yourself, and let us know your views on the situation.

Should Modern Warfare 2 take part of the blame for this or not?
