Yes and no.
Yes, I (As a person) see differences between the two.
No, (Pseudo-Philosophically) because they're both human beings. The differences are in context, but I'm ignoring context for the sake of argumentation.
A knife kill from behind is for you the same thing as cutting a helpless, begging character's throat?
In other words, killing someone, no matter who they are, no matter what they've done, and no matter who the killer is, is the same thing.
By this logic, Hatred isn't evil and neither is CoD. We aren't given any backstory on the victims so they could be Nazis for all we know. So no harm done.
Genocides are no different than murder through self defense.
Not in the slightest. In CoD you don't kill in self defense. In Black Ops you kill metric shit tons of people during one level, and shortly after it in a cutscene. Zero fucks are given. Always on the offensive.
Why is the senseless murder of Russians not evil (Unless the entire world is made of Dota2 players, in which case I guess it's okay)? But the senseless murder of civilians is?
Edit: Word problem.
