Remember nyet Russian
I mean, it's not like a Fascist and then later, Communist revolution in the 22nd and 23rd centuries were crushed mercilessly by the UEG (well, they kinda deserved it for bombing civilians).
Heck, let's not even get into the parallels between ONI and some shady stuff governments do IRL.
Halo totally has no real world links...
I guess nobody really looks at Halo's extended lore when judging it. I got to play CE when I was 10 because it was "just killing aliens to save humanity", and man was that incorrect. CE is the reason I have an irrational fear of any Flood level in Halo.
CoD on the other hand has you gunning down other humans, torture scenes, war crimes, extreme gore (older games), real life weapons, and multiple real-world battles. People tend to be far more likely to be upset over a realistic gun toy (CoD figures and their weapons) then a fictional gun toy (Halo/Destiny weapons and figures.) But yes, Halo has a TON of real world links. I agree on that. But most tend to take things at face value, and, well, Halo seems to hide a lot of that behind the "alien shoot-'em-up" design. CoD, not so much.
