I have recently spent quite a lot of time playing Hidden and Dangerous 2 online, since I have increased my broadband capacity. I enjoy playing, but some of the attitudes and behaviour of the other players has made me question the good taste associated with this type of online multplayers. Is it trivialising the most important historical event of the last century? Plus it worries me how serious some of the clans player take it. One guy said it was the nearest he was ever going to get to real fighting on this scale, and it was a shame that he'd missed the real thing. The various theatres of war can also be a springboard to the sort of nationalism that can be unpleasant. At present, there are emerging, dutch, spanish and french clans. During long sessions, it doesn't take long for the onscreen comments to take a jingoistic tone. Now I'm sure a lot of this is down to the age group of a lot of those playing, but I must admit that I've not experience tha same sort of mentality with other non WW2 games such as unreal etc. Or is it a case of the nation once again just clinging to past glories, in the same way as the 66 world cup? Has anyone else given this any thought?
