    The terrorist group ISIS which recently became known for a series of journalist beheadings has released a video game with the intention of recruiting teens and children into their ranks. The game seems to be a GTA mod oriented around terrorist activity and guerilla warfare.​
    This is an attempt to show that "being a terrorist" is just as fun in the real world as it is in the virtual one and, according to Egyptian news weekly El Fagr, to "raise the morale of the Mujahideen, and the training of children and young teenagers to fight the West, and throw terror into the hearts of opponents of the state". It's horrifying to think that terrorists would reach out to children in this fashion.​
    "We do the things you do in games, in real life on the battlefield" says the trailer, richly interspersed with the ISIS logo. We can only hope that children and teens are wise enough to understand that there's a huge difference between video games and real life.

    I know its bad, But I seriously want to try the game.
    I mean come on! A terrorist group took all that time to create an open world game!

    Edit: They did not release a game, they are simply showing GTA with clips of killing police and civilians.

    And this is exactly the reason why people are becoming more racist these days.
    Weirdly enough, I don't blame them.

    Ohwell, ISIS is trying to imitate the Nazi party.
    Tell tale signs are shown over the past few months.

    Edit:
    Honestly, should this be on the front page, despite it involving videogames?
    I mean, GBATemp is a gaming site, not a world wide newssite.

    Shouldn't Rockstar sue them for promoting real life violence through their IP?

    It's video game-related, so I don't see why not. Yes, it's a delicate issue, but I don't see a reason to top-toe around it.

    I say boycott Israel, Israel is at fault...
    seriously how can anyone doubt ISIS and Hamas intentions? you have no slight idea what the music says and the small tips of ISIS planning activity on the US (911 police car) and those jeeps are used mostly in battlefields in Israel...
    I always felt there's also some odd relationship between terrorist and Obama

    There are people who blame video games for violence, and then there's ISIS, promoting violence with video games. We should somehow turn these social justice warriors and ISIS against each other...

    They're a terrorist group. You don't "sue" them.
