(User Submitted) – Wish you could have been there for the raid of Osama bin Laden's hideout? Now you can—virtually, anyway. An independent developer has released a level for the popular first-person shooter video game "Counter-Strike: Source" that is based on photographs of the Abbottabad compound. "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)," the developer says.

Video game developers at Kotaku also released an add-on for "Kuma War II" that allows gamers to choose between playing as the Navy SEALs raiding the compound or as bin Laden's bodyguards, the Huffington Post reports.
