A MAN is to escape from the relentless coverage of war in Ukraine with a nine-hour session on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Tom Logan, sickened by the senseless bloodshed on the news, admitted he cannot take any more harsh reality and needs to chill out with some harmless entertainment.
He said: “It’s horrible how powerless you feel in the face of something like this. So forgive me, but I’m dedicating today to escapism.
“The game’s a couple of years old now so it’s a little out of date, but the central campaign about Urzikistan rebels battling Russian invaders still holds up. It’s just fun.
“Though mainly I’m playing online, forming alliances with other players from across the world in a no-holds-barred battle for survival. I like the Hovec Sawmill map best. It’s this kind of generic Eastern European setting.
“You have some good chats with other players. There’s a new Modern Warfare out later this year, and we were speculating on what the story might be. Who knows where they will get their inspiration from?”
He added: “Someone was recommending one of these realistic story-type games, but I don’t play games to do stuff you could do in real life. I want to get away from all that into something completely imaginary.”
