How dangerous is online FPS game? It makes a kid to be addictive and aggressive - perhaps you may say, but The Sun wants to tell you that online shooting games like Call of Duty has become the communication tool for terrorists to plot their crimes. Do you believe?

Call of Duty 4
maybe one of those guys who shoot you or shot by you is a real bad guy...

"Once signed in to a 'lobby' using a password, plotters put on Bluetooth headsets and speak securely to conspirators on the same site," The Sun writes. "Other shoot-'em-up games suspected of being targeted by terrorists are thought to be Medal of Honour and the Halo series." These online shooters are not only means of communication for terrorists, but also training tools for would-be jihadists with their realistic combat actions and environment, "from planting bombs to fighting one-on-one".

Gamers who have played lots of FPS games know that Call of Duty, Battlefied and Medal of Honour series aren't that realistic (except for the graphics), especially when you shoot zombies... But hey, terrorists aren't gamers, and do you remember last year's Norway massacre? The criminal Anders Behring Breivik wrote that "I see MW2 (Modern Warfare 2) more as a part of my training-simulation than anything else. I've still learned to love it though and especially the multiplayer part is amazing. You can more or less completely simulate actual operations."
