    Oct 12th, 2011 at 00:28:43     -    Super Columbine Massacre RPG (PC)

    Day 3: On my final day of playing Super Columbine Massacre, I wondered why this game wasnít made a big deal for being very unethical. Maybe I didnít noticed, considering I only know this game exists because of this class, but I donít think the media made a big deal about the creation of this game. Possibly itís because the media did not want to introduce the game to other students around the nation, thus would give them wrong ideas. To make a comparison, I know there are people that actually find this game entertaining, which is sickening. I wonder if anyone would find it entertaining to play a highjacker crashing a plane into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon? Most likely not.
    In fact, there are more acts of violence occurring in school settings than ever before. The game itself portrays the different ďhigh school stereotypesĒ as if every school in America is like that. To me, the creator turned the whole Columbine Massacre into a joke and twisted the story for the amusement of the player. For players who do not know the story behind the massacre, they look at the game as a fun RPG, but in reality are stooping down to the level of the creator.
    Overall, I wouldnít recommend this game. It was hard for me to play this game considering how disrespectful it is to the families of the victims and the Columbine community. The Internet obviously has no limits and that could be scary. Iím not sure if I want to see how far that envelope can be pushed.

    Day 2: Entering my second day of playing Super Columbine Massacre, I started to proceed with the main point of the game, killing whomever you see. I gathered all the ammo I could get and began. As the game progresses, there are conversations between Eric and Dylan on what to do. The dialogue to me is very interesting on how they talk to each other.
    To me, itís interesting to see how the creator decided to put student victims in the game. The creator does this by putting stereotypes on every person you kill. After having a good amount of time playing this game, I donít find any fun in it; in fact I find it disturbing. It seems to me that the creator put these stereotypes on students so you can choose whom you want to kill, depending how you feel. Kind of like taking your own frustration out without actually doing what Eric and Dylan did. Unfortunately, I have still yet to play this game an additional time and at this moment I donít enjoy it at all. Being a student, itís hard for me to play a game like this because this could happen at any moment, at any school.

    DAY 1: When first realizing that I would be playing a videogame called Super Columbine Massacre RPG, I thought to myself, how could anyone want to make a game like this? Having done previous research and reports on the Columbine tragedy, I already had a good amount of knowledge on what exactly happened. The game itself didnít impress me at all. The graphics are terrible, the game itself is hard to understand, and it just isnít any fun to me. The game is unethical on many levels. In the game, you play the characters of Eric and Dylan, who were the actual shooters in the Columbine Massacre, and you act out each kill from the beginning of their ďmissionĒ. Itís disgusting to me that someone would take the time to create a game of such a horrific event, just for othersí entertainment. Not to mention how disrespectful it is to the victimsí families to let anyone on the Internet download this game and play it. This game just shows there are no limits are morals on the Internet. Playing this game isnít as fun to me as others may think it is, so Iíll see how much I can handle playing it my next time.

    Day 3:
    On my final day of playing Grand Theft Auto, I realized there really isnít any point to the game. Sure, there is a story line to follow about CJís journey to gain power and persevere through struggle, but most people that I know that play the game rarely try to beat the missions. Instead they find it more fun, including me, to go around town doing whatever the hell you want. Itís interesting to me because you can kill hundreds of people and steal cars, without any consequences. If anything, you die and are re-spawned, or the police arrest you and you start from scratch exiting the police station. After playing the game for an extended period of time, I fail to find it amusing anymore. You can only rob so many hookers and kill so many cops. Maybe the reason why I find it less amusing is because there is so little moral value imbedded in GTA. Sure, there is some value with CJís family and fighting to survive, but for the most part there isnít any positive message.
    Overall, I would not recommend this game. Itís starts out as a fun time but after awhile you realize how horrible it is to play and how much of a bad influence it possesses.
