You can spray anti-military graffiti

You can spray anti-military graffiti as you frag in Counterstrike. This really appeals to the peace- and fun-loving multiplayer FPS fan in me. Sometimes you need to remind yourself as you play these military-themed games that's it's all just a game. For most of us, anyway.

All the spray designs are so vague, I'm not sure I'd even recognize that their intent is anti-military rather than just randomly weird or perverse.

On the bright side, there are a few candidates there for the AVGPA!

My favorite trick in Half-Life deathmatch (against non-hardcore gamers) was to exit out of the game (citing temporary network issues), boot up Photoshop and whip out some custom slurs using the names of people I was playing. Imagine their surprise on walking into a huge warehouse with direct insults liberally applied to entire facility. Ah, technology.

If you write fast enough you can just write it out on a wall with your machine gun...EAT ME doesn't take too long to write.

I havent played counterstike recently, but before, if you used the right programs, you could make logos that were full colour and about twice as big as the regular ones. I loved spraying a picture of a naked man on the walls, you wouldnt believe how pissed off some of the players got when they saw it...

Mjane,
Are you having issues remembering whether you are playing a game or not? Really not giving you a hard time, but do you think that folks who can't distinguish will somehow be sanctified by dovish graffiti?
