Warco: FPS Game where you wield a camera instead of a gun
'Warco' is a concept game has the potential to be a politically charged and emotionally powerful wargame. Only if it had the budget of a Call of Duty. Hopefully the game can show how a single camera can be more powerful than a platoon.

The game itself—the title of which is actually short for "war correspondent"—follows the story of journalist Jesse DeMarco. Players will experience the process of filming conflicts, going into dangerous situations armed with nothing but a camera. They will then edit the footage into a compelling news story. The scenarios range from intense bursts of action to quieter moments as you discuss the events of the day with fellow journalists in a hotel. Though the main mechanic will be filming the action, Warco is also very much about choice.

...Can I... shoot people with the camera? Do I get a... serrated press pass?

I don't know if I would go that far. Some of the game footage looked as if the emphasis was to showcase the horrors of war.
