Well, that didn't take long. Someone has already made a Counter-Strike: Source map of the walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan where Osama bin Laden was recently found and killed by U.S. troops (you can find it for download here). This isn't the first time the assassination of an internationally important figure has made its way into video game format (For example, players can take the role of Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of John F. Kennedy, in JFK: Reloaded), but it may be the most rapid. With its eternal struggle between terrorists and counter-terrorists, Counter-Strike is probably the perfect stage for playing out this battle. Look at how absolutely perfect bin Laden's hideaway is for translation into a first person shooter map:
Is this in poor taste? Is it "too soon"? I don't hold much of anything sacred from parody, satire, or even tasteful recreation, and welcome this alongside other Counter-Strike maps featuring real life locations such as MGM Studio's Tower of Terror ride. It might be worth a reinstall of CS:S just to get at this map while it's still poignant. Personally, I want to see a shooter featuring bin Laden's mountain fortress. Oh, that's right, that was already a fictional creation of the media.
