        others: this game is so horrific, only the sick-minded would play this.

          - How tough am I? I played this game DEFCON.
          - Yeah so?
          - Without getting scared.
          - ... Right this way

                Why America just doesn’t destroy all It's nuclear weapons?? It would keep a great example for the world.

                  One thing about the defcon game that really struck a nerve of horror in me is the ambiance of it. Through all the chaos going on, you could also hear the cries of the civilians.

                    DEFCON is however far more optimistic than reality. In which, we do not have reliable anti-missile systems, like the game has. This makes the game actually possible to legitimately win. I won a number of AI games with only one continent with less than 10% causalities. Of course, this is very different with a human player and more than one continent. In reality, there is no defence, at least not reliable or current. However, this increases the fear of M.A.D. and thus decreases the risk of war in the first place.

                        I don't know about this game, but you know that you can win this war by nuking all of the opponent military right? Just ignore cities.

                              This is absolutely retarded. No country is going to waste its Nuclear arsenal on cities solely for death count. This game was simply a way of exploring nuclear warfare from a different perspective. There are so many misconceptions about nuclear warfare that I'm afraid this game has left many people misinformed, even more so than they were before.

                                One problem here. The game does not allow any de escalation. The game forces you to go to war.

                                      Here’s a story. My music teachers husband during the Cuban Missile Crisis was in Florida at the keys. Had the button in his hand ready to fire nukes at Cuba and was waiting for the president to give the go ahead. He said it was very scary that he had the button to end life.

                                                    Fun fact, the podcast Welcome to Night Vale deals with this idea a lot. It's about a tiny desert town that was removed from time and space by a god trying to protect it after the events of the Able Archer 83 command exercise actually ended the world via nuclear holocaust.

                                                          the scary past is (and people don't realize this) we are now much closer to nuclear war then we were in the cold war. here are the FLASH POINT IN THE COMING YEAR - India and Pakistan Kashmir conflict, North Korea nuclear weapons, Iran nuclear development, Rising China, South China Sea, NATO getting close to Russia, Russia taking over Baltic states, Russia vs Ukraine and a Huge tinder box in middle east just waiting to explode. A war between Israel and Iran.

                                                            The only real state that would be capable of any real harm is Russia. North Korea, Iran, China, and India will never have a sizable nuclear arsenal that will ever be worth launching. Russia on the other hand is on the war path in order to remain relevant as a superpower, and it will use all of its nuclear arsenal to accomplish that.

A mother kissing her child goodnight, only to be turned to dust by the blast. A senior center playing bingo, turned into a room of once merry people that are now but corpses. I think that would cause some mental problems.
