Video game raises Venezuela lawmakers' ire

From the Associated Press (must be legit)...

CARACAS, Venezuela - A U.S. company's video game simulating an invasion of Venezuela is supposed to hit the shelves next year, but it's already raising the ire of lawmakers loyal to President Hugo Chavez.

Chavez supporters in Venezuela's National Assembly suspect the makers of "Mercenaries 2: World in Flames" are doing Washington's bidding by drumming up support among Americans for an eventual move to overthrow Chavez.

Ok, I'll give you a link so you can look at the rest... But apparently, video games are used to incite world political change. Right. That game is going to suck. Nobody played Mercenaries 1... Idiots. (Link - Yahoo! News)

Thanks to my lovely girlfriend for this story!!!
