The Ultimate War Sim

Over at David Wong has posted a very good commentary on the current war in the form of an “open letter to the real time strategy gaming cartel.” My favorite requests are:

7. I want my Mission Objectives to change every 30 seconds, without anyone letting me know. I want little talking heads to pop up on my screen–commanders, politicians, allies, military intelligence–each giving me different sets of victory parameters, all of them conflicting and many of them written in bullshit ass-covering doublespeak.


15. About every five minutes, I want one of my helicopters to crash, completely on its own, for some fucking reason.
