Stars and Stripes, the foremost independent publication covering the United States military, examined the Army and Air Force's recent decision to forbid Medal of Honor from being sold in their exchanges. One enlisted man blasted the decision as shortsighted.
Marine Cpl. Aaron Hostutler, described as an "avid gamer" is the only service member quoted in the article. Medal of Honor, of course, was banned from base exchanges and later changed the name of Afghan fighters in its multiplayer mode to Opposing Force, or "OPFOR" after outcry over the fact the Taliban were playable and could kill U.S. troops. That change saved the Army's endorsement of the game - noted in its television marketing - but wasn't enough to put it back on PX shelves.
