    Feb 22nd, 2009 at 22:04:13     -    Super Columbine Massaacre (Web)

    I just finished my last game play of the super Columbine Massaacre. I was able to plant both bombs in the cafeteria and make it out of the school undetected. I was very nervous when I was supposed to start killing all of the students and faculty in the school. After killing the first person, I felt terrible. I think I felt so bad because I related my game experience to the real life events. I couldnt even imagine being in the position where I had to kill everyone in order to consider my plan a "success." It was sickening.

    I also found it insulting how they labeled the other people as "openly gay man," "church boy," "jock type," and "nerdy girl." I strongly believe that people should not be stereotyped based on the activities or habits they enjoy. I try to steer away from that as best as I can. Seeing that represented in the game struck me as odd and disrespectful.

    Overall, I would say I very much disliked the game. I would never recomend it to others. I think the entire premise of the game is a very touchy subject. It would be the eqivalent of making a game about the terrorist attacks of 9-11 or Hurricane Katrina. Games that are truley based on a real life tragedy should not be made into a video game.

    I just finished my second time playing the game. After looking to see how others got past the hallway, I managed to avoid the cameras and hall monitors to make it into the cafeteria. I did not realize there were security cameras that needed to be avoided. When I reached the cafeteria, I felt like I had accomplished something. I had tried to put my personal feelings of the game aside in order to get a different perspective. Maybe it's just because I am not really that much of a gamer, but I started to realize the various obstacles and difficulties to complete each task involved in the game. I thought that might be to discourage those who play the game that planting bombs in a school is not as easy as it sounds. I might be way off on that though. One has to find the right technique to avoiding the hall monitors and janitors while still avoiding the security cameras. It took me several attempts until I could complete it in about one minute.

    I think I would enjoy the game more if it held a different theme. The graphics remind me of the original nintendo games from when I was younger. Those are still my favorite games to play. I almost found myself enjoying the game until I was prompted to plant the bombs and escape to the park.

    Today was my first experience playing the game. The keys were easy to figure out, and I was able to move quite easily.

    When the game started, I was somewhat unaware of what I was supposed to be doing. I either was not paying close enough attention or I had just skipped over the directions on what I had to find in the house. As soon as I figured it out, I wanted to explore the rest of the house. I was interested to see what else was around.

    I did have difficulty making my way down the school hallway. I made several attempts, some were more successful than others. I still havent made it down the hallway, but I think I have found the technique to reach the end.

    I havent gotten very far in the game yet, but I am already slightly disturbed by the objective. Normally I wouldnt have any issues with missions to blow things up. However, I think since this game is based on a true life event, it makes me think differently. Although I wasnt affected by the incident, I could not even imagine how those who were in some way affected by the incident would react to this game. I know I personally would be outraged if a shooting that may have hurt someone close to me was turned into a game for amusement.

    Jan 21st, 2009 at 09:02:34     -    Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas (PS2)

    I just finished playing my final round of Grand Theft auto. I still have mixed feelings about the game. One one hand, as I stated in previous posts, the amount of violence and sexual content bothers me. I come from a Catholic background and have adapted the majority of Catholic beliefs. I almost felt dirty when I had to shoot other characters or steal cars. I feel that other games that involve killing other human characters have an unrealistic storyline compared to Grand Theft Auto. Everything that happens in Grand Theft Auto could potentially happen in real life. People do steal cars, kill other people, etc. I think that playing a video game should let you escape the pressures of the real world, not place you into a more corrupt world. If the more violent themes were toned down, I think I would have found the game more enjoyable.

    On the other hand, I do realize that this is only a game and not reality. However, not all players might grasp this concept and might consider trying some of the game moves in real life. Kids, especially now, can get so caught up in the virtual world that it becomes hard to decipher reality from the game. If I were a parent, I would monitor my child's game play of Grand Theft Auto.

    The graphics for the game were excellent. I have not played video games in awhile, so it was cool to see how much progress has been made since my last gaming system (N64). The detailed graphics allow you to really feel like you are in the game. You can get a better sense of the environment you are in.
