Bin Laden compound turned into video game

A media frenzy, infographics, computer simulations and the like have all taken shape since Osama Bin Laden was killed by US forces. Now, videos games are starting to pop-up with “Counter Strike: Source” leading the way.

It is inevitable that games, movies, TV dramas and more will eventually be made based on the death of Bin Laden. Thus, it is not at all surprising that a new map has been created based on the Bin Laden compound for the online first-shooter computer game, “Counter Strike: Source”.

Based on US description, released information and other computer simulations the map was user-created using Source SDK, a developer language for gaming, and looks quite accurate.

Since it is unlikely the US government will release videos of the raid, gamers are now free to create their own simulations and versions of the story in real time over the Internet.
