True. But that wasn't the point, but rather that killing isn't *always* a sin. Which is true.

killing and violence for the entertainment of others!!!!
Also true. And something no one really bothers to question, but just applies 'It's pixels, not blood'+Romans 14 and moves on. I'm not sure how I feel about it, admittedly, but even Mario kills things. It's tricky to find a game with no violence in it that's still fun to play. It's not just 'war games'.
There is also the fact that it's not exactly like gladiators. At least, not for everyone. CoD is, as I said earlier, unlike many war games in that it is anti-war. I take that to heart, so for me, I actually get more than 'kill everything' out of it. I enjoy the characters, and the bond between them, as well as the look at war that shows it to be cruel, violent, bleak, and generally a bad option for life. Even Gears of War, arguably one of the more violent games in existence, shows the pain, ruin and cost of war amidst its whirling chainsaws of fun.
It's still killing for fun though, I'll admit. But you can get a bit more out of it depending on the game.
