Wired Magazine’s Pirate Game; Good or Exploitation?

Amver received a Tweet from one of our followers about a new game Wired Magazine is promoting. It’s called Cutthroat Capitalism and, according to the site, “You are a pirate commander staked with $50,000 from local tribal leaders and other investors. Your job is to guide your pirate crew through raids in and around the Gulf of Aden, attack and capture a ship, and successfully negotiate a ransom.”

What do you think of the game? Do you think this is responsible?

Floyd, your thought seems to be the general consensus. If people won’t get upset about a game promoting prostitution and auto theft they will never really care about a game that promotes taking ships hostage.
