ISIS uses video game to win hearts and recruits

ISIS uses video game to win hearts and recruits

ISIS has a disturbing new YouTube video out. This one will change the way you look at video games.

The terrorist group also known as the Islamic State or ISIL has become notorious for its use of Western social media to spread horrifying propaganda. These murderers have already used Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to broadcast their message of hate around the world. So maybe it's not so surprising that they've now twisted one of our worst video games into a recruiting tool.

A new YouTube video posted by ISIS shows gameplay footage of what appears to be a modification of one of the "Grand Theft Auto" (GTA) games. The GTA series of video games is notorious for letting gamers play out violent, misogynist and depraved fantasies. It seems like GTA and ISIS is a match made in hell.

I refuse to post that kind of filth on my website, but I did watch it and I was very disturbed.
