    Um... I live two blocks from the school. I didn't hear about this at all. I was out most of the day yesterday though (at the functions, ironically).

    I haven't heard anything about this until this moment. Can you help find some info about it? A link or a video perhaps?


    Edit: Nevermind. Thanks for mentioning it.

      What a stupid idea. Who the hell would buy that? GTA is one thing, its all in fun, completely fictional. But a columbine game is just wrong. The lawsuits alone would sink a company stupid enough to make it. So yes it is over the line.

          I bet I know which one you're talking about. Well, there's three right in the same area actually. Two religious day cares and one private practice.

          And yeah, I can see why that might cause unease.

          Still, it looks to be just someone with a lot of problems who is looking to mimic rather than anyone orchestrating some grand plan.

          I'm just glad no one got hurt.

            lol. I bet you do not.

            We had this conversation once before, but I do not expect you to remember. It is at a persons house, but it is not the one right there on the corner across from the king soopers. The one that has all that play stuff like swings and little plastic castle/fort thingys...

            He goes to a place that is about 2 blocks west of that and 1 block east in a neighborhood, by a school called deer creek elementary or racoon deer or dolphin deer......there is some animal in the name but hell if I remember what it is.


            You are right though, from reading a little more on the subject it appears to be a quick noise maker and not a smart grand plan. Luckily!

              Sadly, there are going to be soulless wretches clamoring for this.

              Somebody has to stop that, are you kidding me? Tasteless.

                  Disgusting and sickening. Needless to say, way over the line here.

                    Reminds me of that level on Cod

                    except this actually happend.

                    I don't get it, it'd be such short game the only thing it'd be worth is controversy. Not worth making or producing.

                    Plus really that's so mean.

                      So this gaming company wants to make a game, where you play as the guys who did the Columbine shooting and the Va Tech massacre.

                      You run around killing students and you have the option to commit suicide if you don't wanna get arrested.

                      Here is a video from Next Gen Tactics talking about it.
                      in call of duty you kill a bunch of innocent civilians at an airport

                      but yeah, violence against children has always seemed to be taboo in videogames

                      i will however say i respect videogames and movies as an art form, and they've made movies about colombine type situations so as an art form, i don't think it should be censored

So I really wouldn't rub war games in the same boat as this.
                        yes but that's hypocritical, as the US is often seen to other countries, as the real terrorists

                          But I agree with Amari on each post he made, and yes I could see a lawsuit if this game is made, one being from the parents of the kids and college students that died that day.

                          As for comparing wars game to this, that is kinda dumb, because war game are reenactments with fiction added. But here reenactments of WWII, Cold War, Vietnam, desert storm,etc. People only cried about 2 war games, in that was one game that was never made because people thought it was wrong, it was a game that was gonna be based on the war in iraq. The second game is Medal of Honor, which is a fictional war game based off the middle east war with the Taliban.

                          My point is, your not picking names of dead troops, in throwing them in a game.
                          Everything other than the war, places, and military groups, are made up.

                          This company wants this game to be realistic to the core.
                          not all war games are re-enactments

                          ghost recon made a war game about going to war and killing north koreans

I was in the parking lot when it happened waiting for my ride home from a martial arts class. I thought it was a car backfiring at the time. It was muffled, and hard to tell where the sound was coming from. I didn't know any better.

                            Fast forward to 1999. I was living in the Littleton area and at work less than 5 miles from Columbine when that tragedy took place. I cannot erase the looks of horror on the faces of the customers, and employees who had children at the school at the time when they found out there had been a shooting and the killers were still unidentified and roaming the halls. I lived next to and worked with several people who were affected directly by the shooting. Even though I was lucky enough to not be involved in the event myself I still lived with the end result.

                            That being said, it makes me very angry to hear something as insensitive and awful making light of the situation. It's no better than someone designing a flight simulator where the object is to crash your plane into a building. The thought of it disgusts me, and those people should be ashamed of themselves.

                                so on the side topic of the thread. The FBI has found the man who tried to do the Southwest plaze mall bombing a week ago. However, they can not locate him. He is 65 years old, 225lbs blue eyes, on the run and armed and dangerous.

                                So the good news is they know who did it. Now they just need to find him.


                                apparently the guy just got out of prison for 11 years just 5 days earlier.
