So, what’s the big deal exactly?

February 10, 2006

Perhaps I’m missing something, but it seems that the British Red Cross is complaining about the use of its emblem in games.

[quote]It is important for videogame manufacturers not to use the emblem in their games, including for matters related to its humanitarian purpose, such as first aid or general medical care,[/quote]

Why is it a problem if a medic in a warzone has the emblem on their helmet? How is this a bad thing? I suppose I’m just having trouble seeing it from the other side. I just fail to see where the problem is here.
