| This was my third time playing the game and I finished it by having Dylan and Eric commit suicide. Some people think this game is to violent, but when playing the game I didn't think it was anymore violent than games like GTA or Fallout 3. I think some of the reason that people may think this game is so violent could be because it deals with a situation that really took place and as you play the game you are replaying the shootings. Overall I think that the violence in the game is not that overwhelming.
Another observation I had was that all the dialogue in the game either talks about killing people or how the Eric and Dylan seem to justify what they are doing. According to the game they seem to believe that killing all these people is honorable, courageous, and noble. It just seems weird that in the game they choose these virtues to associate with the characters, but I guess that may be how they felt about what they were doing. It shows that although these virtues are usually good things to have that they can be twisted and cause a lot of harm.

| Played the game for the second time from my saved game and stated killing more students and faculty in the library. I still feel the same about the game that it is very unimaginative and boring. One thing I find interesting was all the flash backs that occur in the game. Like when one of the characters thinks back about the working the lighting for the play "Frankenstein" and how he knew he would be treated at the cast party like an outcast. Most of the dialogue in the game is about how Eric and Dylan have been harassed and put down their whole time in high school. I'm not sure if the meaning behind this game is that people can not blame games or music for the violence that occurs but should look at themselves and the way they treat people: if the students had treated them better would this have happened? So far that's the only thing that I have found that bares any value in this game.

| Started playing this game today and at first thought it was little interesting that someone made a game about the two kids that were responsible for the Columbine shootings. As I played it I found it to be pretty boring and uneventful overall. Before playing the game I did believe that all the controversy the game got was deserved because of the events that the game was dealing with, but as I played the game more I started to think about all the games out there that take place during wars that really happened. Like those games "Super Columbine Massacre RPG" is just telling a story through game play and did not seem to be very unnerving to me. To me if the makers had just changed the names of the kids and the school I'm not sure the backlash would have been as great towards this game. So far overall the game to me is still interesting and I'm curious as to what other real footage the developers used from the shootings.
