    A dramatic video shown on Iranian state TV, purporting to show a Hezbollah sniper shoot six ISIS soldiers, has been exposed as footage from the first-person shooter video game Medal of Honor.

    The video was shown on Iran’s state TV as well as shared on its website and across other Iranian media outlets, according to France 24.

    The men speaking Arabic in the video are portrayed as a team of crack Hezbollah snipers from Lebanon.

    The footage generated a number of sensational headlines from national media including "Hezbollah sniper kills Daesh combattant”, "Hezbollah sniper hunts down Daesh brutes”, and "Six Daesh combatants are killed in 2 minutes by a Hezbollah sniper”.

    Any IS kill is a good kill but life's not a video game.

    Video games romanticize conflict and makes it seem easy and emotionless, but in reality, you'll probably **** your pants. There isn't indestructible armour, quickie health packs and nor do you get to save or restart your life.

    War is terrible and we can all do without armchair warriors glorifying it.

    I'm so glad you've informed me of that! I was literally just about to go join the army because my K/D ratio is on point atm.
    You're really doing a great service by telling us that a work of fiction isn't the same as real life :yep:

    You mean to tell me that they used footage of a scene in Medal of Honour... a VIDEOGAME (not even a movie...) and put that up as their own footage of them 'killing people'? And... wait wait lemme just think... they thought they'd get away with it?

    Is this the real life?
