I also challenge the assertion that Hurt Locker presents violence as a fun thing to use in your game. Rather, it's about violence as a serious subject to include in your game. Cyber bullying, intentionally triggering trauma victims, various skills and techniques for hurting people, and yes, torture, are valid things for games to address. But of those subjects, torture has a history of being portrayed inaccurately in fiction (and some non-fiction), so Hurt Locker made a point of addressing that inaccuracy.
