    Aug 14th, 2009 at 10:24:50     -    Super Columbine Massacre RPG (PC)

    The Third time playing this game for me was on the boring side. I had completed the game the second time I played so going through the same dialogue and actions was repetitive and monotonous. I still think that this game resembles the Pokemon series games with the characters and movements, it is very strange to compare the two because of the different content but that is what Super Columbine Massacre's format reminds me of. As I was going through the stages of the game, it is evident that the two boys had very foul language when they would engage in conversation. I know that the point of this game is to recreate the feeling and personalities of Harris and Klebold, but I feel like the swearing and morbid attitudes of the already disturbed boys is a little harsh for possible family members may have to see.

    The shooting and bomb placement in this game is also very accurate to the real events. When you are in the cafeteria and bombs are going off by the tables, it recreates the video camera footage of that scene very well. I thought the process it takes to actually kill someone took a bit too long for my taste. I hated going through all the options screens and then waiting for two gun blasts to actually kill one of the students. I wish the creators would have came up with a better way of using your weapons.

    Overall this game was decent, I was not in a very excited mood to kill students that are pixels of actual people that died. Columbine was a very tragic and sad day for this country and will continue to haunt the lives of the families involved. This game brings back those bad memories and is probably hated by those families. I had no connection to anyone in that tragedy, so I can stay neutral while playing this game. I am not a big PC game fan in the first place, but this game was alright and definitely captured all the aspects that led up to and occurred on that dark day.

    After playing Super Columbine Massacre for the second time I noticed how detailed the game really is. The game cuts into President Clinton's actual speech he gave after the tragedy occurred. That is the first time I have played a game that included an actual piece of the USA's history. I also enjoyed the part of the game where it cut to a flashback of Harris and Klebold being picked on, harris in the locker room getting beat up by three students and Klebold in the cafeteria sitting by himself wishing someone would notice him. Then after these two flashbacks you have the option of shooting students in the gym, where the jocks that beat up Harris are and go into the cafeteria, the place that haunted Klebold. The cafeteria part of the game is very surreal because we have all seen the videotape footage of the tragedy taking place in that cafeteria. The use of the home made bombs and shooting people really made the game a realistic version of what really happened that day.

    The only part i disliked while playing the game is the process it takes to actually shoot someone. There are too many sub screens and options just to shoot someone. It would be a lot more convenient if the game creators made a letter key the option to shoot someone instead of going through the violence screens over and over again. Super Columbine Massacre also shows the dead bodies after you kill someone, bloodied on the floor, which in my opinion would definitely bring back bad memories of the 13 people that died that day. I also thought it was weird that after every kill they would say victory for trench-coat mafia. I think that is a little harsh for a video game, especially one that had such a negative affect on many lives.

    The game is very interesting though and i am looking forward to playing it again for the third time.

    Super Columbine Massacre is a game that definitely brings back bad memories of a horrible day for America. This is a very accurate game that definitely captures all aspects of all the events that led up to Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold's vicious attack on an unexpecting Columbine High School. This is the first time I have played this game, so I was not sure what I was in for. The beginning of the game was interesting because it starts off with Eric waking up in his room and then the plot begins to thicken. The controls of the game are very easy with the use of the arrow keys and enter. Super Columbine Massacre reminded me of the Gameboy version of Pokemon. The controls are the same, and the characters in the game even move and look the same. I am not sure if the game is made by the same creators but it definitely reminded me of playing Pokemon, although Super Columbine Massacre is a lot heavier and depressing than Pokemon. Throughout the game there is a lot of dialogue going on between Harris and Klebold, which helped keep my interest as to what the next step in the game would be. It was also interesting reading their quotes and watching video clips and pictures of what actually happened that day. Althought this is just a game, all of the chapters and scenes of the game are realistic to the events that occurred on April 20th, 1999. As I got deeper into the game and entered the school, I figured out that you had to step in front of the students, teachers, and janitors to be able to attack them. It was a little weird shooting the "preppy and pretty" students because a lot of people probably do not find this game funny or entertaining. I know that these are factitious characters in a PC game, but they definitely could remind someone of a person that actually lost their life during this tragedy. I liked the fact that you could enter all the rooms and that there is many options to hit enter at to do different things.

    I only played the game for a half hour, and there was a lot of information to take in and experiment with. Next time I play i am going to experiment more with the game and see what else i can have Eric and Dylan do to cause more havoc within the school.

    Jul 24th, 2009 at 09:54:43     -    Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas (PS2)

    After playing the game today for about 45 minutes, along with all the previous times I have played San Andreas I can see where parents might deter their children from being exposed to such graphic violence. I think that the Mature game rating of San Andreas fits due to the violence, content, and language the game entails. After i entered the cheats for the three sets of weapons I searched for the sniper rifle, and as soon as I found it it was time to get graphic. I used the jetpack cheat to get to the top of a building and thenpulled out my sniper. I then proceeded to aim at pedestrian's heads, fired and watch their headless bodies fall to the ground. This type of imagery may not be suitable for a young child to view or do even though it is a video game. I am going to be a parent eventually one day and games such as San Andreas would worry me if my 8 year old way playing it. Another example of the violence I pursued while playing the game was punching in the Spawn Tanker cheat, in which a huge tank appears on screen. I then proceeded to get into it and run over people for no reason. Although at a mature age I know all the types of violence within San Andreas is wrong and unrealistic, I mean a tank just does not pop out of nowhere, I can see where parents get upset at the fact the San Andreas along with all the Grand Theft Autos can make a bad impression on a young mind.

    I believe that San Andreas shows the extreme violence that occurs in reality only to an exaggerated degree. Of course there are shootings, hit and runs, and crime thug life going on in the United States, and San Andreas is a game that personifies that notion in an exaggerated manner. I know that San Andreas is an extremely violent game that should be out of reach of younger children, but I think that it is not the rot of all evil as some people would make you think. I have done all the damage I can while playing this game for these three sessions and yes sometimes it was fun to do, but I know the difference between video game and reality. This is why I think that parents get worried, they believe that games like San Andreas will have their children believe they can perform the acts going on in the game, which is definitely not the case.

    One of my favorite aspects of the game is if for whatever reasons your killed, you have infinite lives. This is another reason why people should relax with criticisms of the game because I have not seen many come back to live after they are shot 15 times. San Andreas has a notion of invincibility which is not a realistic idea that i think people understand. In all, I love playing San Andreas because it gets me a chance to do thing I would never think of doing in real life, and it is entertaining to see what limits your character can push with regards to the law.
