i think they are capitalizing on the disenfranchised public. but you're true, there's lots of kiddies that haven't popped their mental cherries yet who are probably worse for the wear to be exposed to games like these as an intro to life and gaming.

what's a kid to do in a world where his own government is the posterchild for, at least in part, misanthropy?

there's probably no need for such a game in the mainstream. but I fully expect subversion in all forms of art and creative projects to continue. while we debate the propriety of these and other medias, the genocides and have vs. have not wars continue.
