    Oct 29th, 2009 at 11:35:34     -    Super Columbine Massacre RPG (PC)

    As I started playing this game the thing that really stood out to me is how accurate this game seemed to portray the events. For example the words that were used in the cut-scenes the people you killed, and the inventory that the player had available. The words were actually based on true videos. The inventory was the exact same weapons that were used in the actual event. What also really struck out to me was the music the game used. As we all know one of the biggest fallbacks to this event was rock music. Even though this game used MIDI songs I could tell these were all songs of angst by popular rock bands that were famous at the time of the shooting. As I begin to play through this game I am going around shooting all these people. I begin to wonder why this game is getting so much controversy. Is this game really different from many games that we play today? I donít think so, because in this game all you are doing is going around shooting random innocent people. Yet most games now and days have that same concept. Take for example GTA you are able to kill pretty much anyone for any reason. After the suicide it then goes into a cut scene of the after affects of the shooting. Suddenly I get this horrible of feeling of, what have I done. I then begin to realize not only was I killing innocent people, but all these people are the sons and daughters of someone else. As the scenes keep coming I begin to think is it media that actually was the cause of all this. Can we really blame this on rock music or videogames? After the cut-scene then you enter hell, and try to find out what is going on and where your other friend went. After hell they show another cut-scene of parents talking about these two guys that killed their kids, and how everything is the cause for this. What this game really shows me is that there are other factors that are not media related that come into play. Why didnít anyone reach out to these guys and tried to help them? Why were kids picking on them in the first place? These are some questions must ask themselves before they start putting the blame they are not sure is the cause for it.

    I have played this game before and beat the game but today I went back to my old school collection and brought it out and played it. I started from the beggining and one thing I noticed its that like most GTA games you start in a low point, probably the lowest point of your life. Your motherís dead, crooked cops are hassling you, and you can feel the pull of the gangster life that you left Los Santos to escape. After the initial cut scene CJ, has to head back to his home. Now this to me is where your first ethical choice comes. Because here you can either choose to take a bicycle or if you're in a hurry you can jack a car from a nearby road in order to make it their faster. People playing this game especially the younger crowd is going to think well im in a hurry I have no car and no ride. So what is going to stop them from thinking, "Hey he did it in the game. Why is it wrong for me to do it? The other thing that really stood out to me is the racial implications that this game had. Why is that the people of minority are the ones being ordered around and dressed up as they have no education. While the other races are dressd up very nice and clean and are usually the main men in the gang. I had my games all saved from before so then I jumped to the mission of Tagging up Turf. Where you and your brother will have to spread out a bit and tag up the neighborhood, obscuring the tags of the Ballas and the Front Yard gangs. To me growing up in a populated are with gangs, this mission really stands out. This mission here to me is saying if your in a gang go and mess with their territory. First of all it is not only the gangs property your messing but ordinary citizens who have nothing to do as well. If you bump into one of the gangs members you can cap him off so he wont bother you or try to kill you. This mission right here is making tagging and murdering like if its all part of life and it is something you must do.
