See If I Ever Give A Dime To The Red Cross After This

They want realistic video war games to adhere to the Geneva Conventions:

At the 31st meeting of the International Committee of the Red Cross, held this week to discuss many issues in modern combat throughout the world, a smaller panel was convened to discuss videogames and the effect they have on the public. Specifically, the Red Cross investigated several games that depict modern warfare and examined whether the rules of the Geneva Conventions governing protections for wounded soldiers, civilian non-combatants, and prisoners of war should be applied to videogames.

Hat tip to Andrew Ian Dodge.

Update This ultra-realistic military video game should have no problem passing Geneva Convention muster.


Ultra-Realistic Modern Warfare Game Features Awaiting Orders, Repairing Trucks

Note: Onion videos are preceded by a commercial - and the one playing at the time of this posting is pretty amusing. The ad is slightly edited for time constraints - I found the entire ad on YouTube. The music playing is Camille Saint-Saens' Danse Macabre.
