Danoc44's Super Columbine Massacre RPG (PC)

| This game looked entirely just seemed to be begging for attention. First, the title immediately gets people thinking. Then you play through the murders of boys and girls in the highschool, in the exact same way that they did. While the creator argues that you don't learn how to make bombs, buy guns, and so on, you do still recreate this massacre at Columbine highschool. I feel that this game could be harmful if it got into the wrong hands. Someone else with a difficult past and trouble thinking. It's games like this that carry and draw discussion about violence and videogames. These games are the problem, even though it barely looks realistic, and the violence is cartoonish. Its the reason for the game that causes problems. This shooting changed the U.S. through gun laws and bullying regulations. It also, or media showed it as, leading to several other shootings in schools and on campuses all over the world. The subject is why this game is so controversial.

| After playing through a little more, I see that the creators really tried to make this game as true as possible. Obviously no one knows the conversations that the two shooters had while in their home, or car, or anywhere. It shows how the creators believed they acted when they were alone talking about their plans. I think that this is why it is so controversial. It recreates the situation and shows the killers in a different light. It shows them as needing to do this, rather than see them as killers.
I think that this is a good depiction of the game though. Instead of continuing to hate these kids and see them as monsters, its important to think that maybe they did second guess themselves. Maybe they were just very troubled kids, who were too confused to look for help from family and friends.

| No doubt Super columbine Massacre is a very disputable game . This game deliberately brings up controversial questions, and based on the response of the questions that person is slayed. Considering this game has the words "Columbine Massacre" in it, I would guess that these characters in the game (Eric and Dylan) are characters used to mimic the kids in the Actual Columbine Massacre.
Games like this really question the ethics in the game making industry. At the beginning of the game the creators make it clear that this was made as a publicity stunt. Of coarse this game was bound to get attention because of its title, but is this game so far from the reality of the columbine situation?
The Columbine Massacre was tragic event that was conducted by a bunch of kids in a similar manner. These kids conducted a massacre in a high school and massacred people based on beleifs and stereotypes. This game can be viewed as a true depiction of what actually happened during this tragic event. The motives for these kids was based on a hate for god and those different (gays jocks ext).
