Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad Hideout Now Has a Playable Counter-Strike Map

The line between video games and reality continues to blur: A week after President Obama told Americans in an emergency broadcast that Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had been killed by Navy SEALs in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, there’s now a playable map in first-person shooter Counter-Strike: Source modeled after that very compound. The map is available for download at GameBanana, and “may be used as a base for a bomb or hostage map at a later stage,” according to its description.

The map’s creator writes:

What alot of people don’t seem to understand is that the only thing this map has in common with Osama is location. I can see how people would think it is in bad taste, but honestly if that’s your opinion you may as well protest the whole game (as well as many others).
