The plot has always been losely based on possible current or upcoming events.
GR3 is the first one iv seen step way out of line with something that seems ( at first glance ) to have no real world conflict base.
Either way most of what I have read in this thread so far is pointless... Ask a stupid question get told a smart answer (thanks white knight and gab )
What exactly is so loosely possible about U.S./NATO soldiers having a gun battle in Red square?
Presuambly the thought of Soviet Spetnatz blowing up tanks outside of the White House in Washington to save America from islamic terrorism is another scenario whose realism you wouldn't blink at.
American soldiers in Mexico is WAY more believable than that junk.
In fact ANY nations soldiers in Mexico is WAY more believable than that junk.
As I said, plot written on the back of a match book down the pub.
This whole "it's a real bunch of soldiers nonsense" is too much.
The Ghosts are a fictional unit, they did not rescue Moscow in 2008.
They do not exist.
It's a video game, it's not real. It hasn't happened.
We can pretend that the are based on a real bunch of people, but they are not.
It's science fiction.
We can substitute any fantasy we like as for the unit names, regiments, soldier names and scenario plots, the important part is the core infantry simulation.
It still never happened. It never will.
Since we can, and the game play will remain true, we should.
There will always be people like the posters above who cannot or do not wish to, disassocociate the game with reality.
Therefore the fantasy should be tailored to the maximum cross section of these people. (Not just the minority of Americans), in order to sell it top them.
