The Red Cross wants video games to punish characters for “war crimes” when players willingly kill civilians or prisoners in combat games.
They want to make it clear to gamers that there are rules in battle and that certain acts are illegal.
Shooting civilians, ambulances, prisoners, and torture are options available to gamers – and the Red Cross wants these actions to be condemned by the games’ makers.
“We’re not asking for censorship; we don’t want to take any elements out of the games,” said spokesman Bernard Barrett. “We’re not trying to make games boring or preachy. We just want games to respect the basic rules of armed conflict and include penalties for gamers who commit war crimes.” (Mirror)
