    Mar 10th, 2009 at 16:59:42     -    Super Columbine Massacre RPG (PC)

    It is a bit difficult to play this game. This may be because of the graphics and because of the view you play in. I read somewhere, I think it was on the page where you download the game, that this game was created in this format because the simplicity in the design lessens the violence that the game is based on. I don't think that this lessens the violence. While playing, you must enact what happened the actual day of the shooting. You have guns and bombs, and you have to go through the library and cafeteria just like the shooters did. Of course, the worse part, you go around throwing bombs and shooting around, just like what happened in real life. I understand that you play a game to play and complete the game, but this game makes players, me at least, think about what happened the day of the shooting. Also, when you go around shooting and throwing bombs around, they people in the game run around panicking. Those images in the game make me imagine how the victims that day must have been running and ducking for cover to survive.

    I think the problem with this game is that it offends the parents of the kids who died that day. I feel this game makes them relive the violence and mayhem that happened. Even worse, players go around as the guys who carried out this tragedy and are forced to re-enact what happened that day.

    When hearing the title to this game, the first thought that came to my mind was how could anyone make a game like this. When I went to download the game, I read through some of the material on the page. I read that many people would initially be upset and object to this game. But after reading further I noticed something that stood out, "Yet we do not make the same assumption about any other medium: a documentary on the Columbine massacre, or a novel, or a New Yorker essay would, a priori, be treated with respect, at least until the viewer or reader had experienced it, after which a judgment might be made as to its merits." This is very true and I never figured a game can be viewed like this. And so after reading this statement, I put my thoughts about this game aside and played.

    The first thing that stands out about this game are the graphics. They are very simple and they are similar to the graphics of the first Nintendo. I understand that this is a game, and as a player, my objective is to play the game in hopes of finishing the game, but I still find it a little odd starting to play this game.

    I played my final session of San Andreas today. I realize that this is a violent game and other might think the same. But the violence, guns, and missions are essential to CJís survival and to your success as a player. As a player, we must complete the mission at hand, whether it is spray painting another gangís graffiti or shooting someone in order to keep CJ alive. Just because I play this game, or others play this game, it does not mean that Iím a violent person. We are only completing the missions in order to advance forward in the game. Overall, I liked playing San Andreas. It is violently entertaining and Iím amazed at the complexity of this game.

    I don't have a memory card so I had to start from the beginning for my 2nd session. I tried looking for things that I missed when playing the first time. I really didn't catch anything different though. The main themes of violence, struggle, and fighting for survival was just as prevalent in the second session as in the first.

    From reading some of the other entries, I notice that some people were going around and exploring and raising hell in the game, not necessarily completing the missions. Maybe Iíll try that next time. I concentrated on completing the first few missions again this session. I did notice something in particular though from watching CJís interactions with some of the other characters in the game. From the first few missions, it seemed that CJ wanted to prove himself to his friends by being tough or hard. That may be the reason that he goes with them into rival gangís territory and helps them spray paint over other gangís graffiti. Also, when you first complete the first few missions, you earn respect and some cash. By completing those missions, it shows that CJ is down and ready to roll with his boys.
