evil north korean invaders in homefront video game

I'll admit, I don't play a lot of video games. But I recently learned about Homefront, a new first-person shooter video game, and found the premise rather alarming. Set ten years after the economic collapse of the United States, the game follows the American Civilian Resistance as they fight to reclaim their homeland from an oppressive North Korean occupation.

In other words, the game lets you shoot lots and lots of North Korean soldiers -- the evil foreign invaders! Right in your own backyard. I suppose it's easy to craft a game with North Korean enemies... it's not like any gamers in North Korea are going to protest. This game ought to do well with fans of Red Dawn, as well as the upcoming Red Dawn remake. Watch the trailer here. It's a little frightening, on a lot of levels.
