It is a well known fact that without any good script there cannot be a good movie, without good dialogues no good drama and without a good script there can be no interactive game. The script or in technical words, the programming, of every game is quintessentially important for every successful interactive game. Not only adults are actively engaged in gaming now a days, but kids are increasingly getting hooked to the new video games now days. There has been a lot of criticism from various quarters, mainly from human rights groups, about the dicey impact of violent and gory nature of content being used in the kid’s video games, but, as they say, this is a free world, and everyone has the right to a free speech. To some extent the right’s groups are morally and ethically on a superior ground. Given the changing nature of modern warfare and it’s over reliance on computer simulation, they argue that this video-gaming mentality will soon creep into the decision making matrix of all the major conflicts around the world.
