    Oct 29th, 2009 at 13:13:53     -    Columbine RPG (PC)

    Ok, so this is my third and finally game log entry for the columbine game, and honestly I'm glad that this is the last time I have to play this game. This last time i was caught by the police where I was given the choice to commit suicide, me being who I am, decided to see if the game would end if i did commit suicide, instead we are transported to hell where characters, that remind me of the monsters in the old school doom game , would come after me. The game was mostly the same after this realization. The hell portion of the game was an unexpected surprise for me, I thought the game would end with my death. I feel this added level was also a little humorous, but also stated that the boys who did the columbine shootings were sent to hell immediately after they had killed them selves. the entire experience for me made me think about how people state that violent music, movies, and games effect the person playing it.

    After the second time playing the game, I began noticing the number of media references with in the game and how these outside media sources apparently affect the person that enjoys them in negative ways. There were some references to Marylyn Manson and Nirvana's music, I personally have listened to both of the bands growing up as a child and i have never once done or planed out anything that was violent, let alone as violent as the columbine shootings. I feel that the designer of the game was trying to show the ridiculousness of the fact that, when the columbine shootings actually occurred in reality, the media accused violent music, video-games, and movies as the reason for the shootings.At least i would hope the designers were parodying this because if they agreed with that logic then their very own video-game could potentially fuel and inspire a second columbine shooting.

    When i spent my first 30 mins playing this game, after the very hard time I spent looking for a pc to download this game on, I spent it walking around the school and shooting up the entire student body and the faculty that worked in the schoool. this game to me got boring quickly but it felt weird recreating this horrible act if violence that took place years ago. For me it was weird being put in the position of the columbine shooters. Honestly, it was one of the weirdest experiences of mof my life beacuzse at times I would recall a speaker that visited my high school, while I was attending, and his daughter was in the columbine shooting, he spoke with such passion about how much he missed his daughter, and that really affected me durring his speech and after playing thiis game for a little it just brought those feelings back. This is one of the few games that I honestly did not enjoy playing.

    All right so this was my third time playing San Andreas and I have come to a decision. I like this game. The reason I like this game so much is because of the free form and the ability to do so many illegal activities to so many random pedestrians. I feel that this game appeals to people because it allows them to do things that whey would never get away with in the real world, but the game makes it effortless to run away from the law. I feel like it gives a false sense of justice to the players. Honestly I wish that San Andreas were a little more realistic. After finishing up this assignment I cannot help but think of what Professor Zagal said during the first week of school; should we allow people to murder in games and get away with it in real life? Does visualizing these horrific events make us numb to pain in the real world, will us as human beings be more willing to commit illegal activities because we did it in a virtual world. Common sense says that playing a video game will not cause us to change who we are based on what we do in a game, but can it make us more open to the idea of it? Is it ethically wrong for people to enjoy and play this game often? Will the racial slurs be passed on to the player who is watching the cut scenes?
    I cannot answer these questions, but I feel that the ESRB ratings at the bottom corner of the game box should be enforced heavily, no child, under the age of 16, should ever be able to play this game. They would learn negative things while playing San Andreas.
