This is in no way a topic intended to disrespect or offend anyone. It is merely an idea I've had for quite some time that would make sense and, in my opinion would be interesting to take part in from a gaming perspective.
I've had this idea for a while now, and whenever I stumble upon something 9/11 related on the internet, the idea comes back to my mind, but since the subject is so touchy, I've had second thoughts on whether to ask other people for their opinion about this. I can almost see it. Such games as Call of Duty like to put the player in the shoes of "an about to be killed" person during a horrible and tragic event such as a terrorist attack?
What if they had a mission set during the attack on the twin towers? I'm not a call of Duty fan, but what if you, as a player were put in the shoes of a worker in one of the twin towers ten minutes before the plane crashed into the first tower? I'm talking about a proper presentation, with to exaggerated bullsh*t surrounding it. A proper, good presentation of the horrors the people who died during that tragic event had to go through. Just imagine being in that position. You're above the 100th floor. You hear the explosion and immediacy panic and pandemonium erupt inside the tower. You mindleslly follow your co workers and try to escape the tower, all in vain.
How much controversy do you think such a level in a videogame would cause in the media, and would you actually play the game, knowing there is a mission that opens up with you, being a person about to be killed.
