| 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.
