A developer going by the name of Fletch has created a map of Bin Laden’s Abbottabad Complex where he lived from 2005 till his death on 2nd of May 2011 for Counter Strike.
It’s not a new concept to have real life locations appear in computer games including those from real missions that have been carried out by world millitary but some would suggest that releasing a map like this so soon after the killing of Osama Bin Laden, is in poor taste.
It’s an interesting topic for debate that may have some very good points for both sides of the argument. What seems clear is that Fletch does not intend to create a mission in which players recreate the Navy Seals mission from the 2nd of May but instead have missions based on the concept.
One mission using the map he is constructing is an aftermath in which terrorists defend evidence in the base from being taken by Counter Terrorist Forces. Though some believe that just the location alone being in a computer game so soon is in poor taste and perhaps even means for provocation for more terrorist action.
What do you think? Do you play Counter Strike? Do you feel this map is in poor taste or will you be playing it yourself?
