Apparently the NRA just name-checked this game in their response to the recent Sandy Hook school shooting. I found out since after returning from walking the dog two journalists had e-mailed me asking for more information about the game.
Because guns don't kill people, obscure 10 year-old Flash games kill people.
Guns don't kill people either. Don't think I ever heard of one aiming and firing itself.
Obviously you haven't played Half-Life, Deus Ex, or...
Just some Quake 2 and Wolfenstein 3D back in the day as "proper" FPSs (and maybe an hour of Clive Barker's Undying and a few minutes of Half Life 2 and Far Cry, got killed probably at the first even remotely possible spot and uninstalled). Did play Deus Ex, as a hacker/sniper, but sniping used sparingly, if at all possible my kills were hand-to-hand, even destroyed some of those large security bots by staying behind them since they couldn't turn fast enough and hacking away, taking the blast damage.
Have quite a dislike for firearms and usually do what I can to avoid them even in virtual environments, but have an even greater dislike for those who want to take away people's rights to own whichever of them they damn well please, be it for self-defense, collecting or simply because they feel like it, as long as they're not known as having problems controlling their own actions and don't have a violent criminal record.
Oh, 0.001% of people who play games, watch movies or have access to weapons go on killing sprees, let's go blame the objects and punish the remaining 99.999%! Blah.
There was a correction in the submission queue today to have the game removed from the database...
On what grounds? This makes it even more significant! The only reason I documented it in the first place was after it was banned from the Finnish portal. Controversy is usually a good story even when the game is pants, as in this case.
"Posting this game is in error and Gary Short - Well - I hope he can search his inner soul."
Thank goodness that contributor never saw the h-games here!
I was considering someday documenting the neo-nazi concentration camp simulators, though doing so never became ... high priority. If they are not significant, however, then nothing here is significant.
So these exist?
I've heard a rumor probably 20 years ago, but assumed this was told by someone who thinks "all games are evil, violent etc." and dismissed it as a hoax. When I joined MobyGames and learned about many obscure self-made games in the last 30 years, I considered asking on the forum, but again, I was afraid to sound foolish.
If you can imagine it, someone has at least started developing a game based on it.
Have yet to see a game adaptation of a De Sade novel. The worst hentai I've seen still cannot compare to that.
I'm sure Edmund McMillen is working on it.
From the BPJM's index:
More than I expected... thank you for fetching the list. So it's indeed possible that there was one such game 20 years ago? I recall that person mentioned "segregation for the camp" as part of the gameplay.
Yeah, these are all from the mid-to-late 80s, probably all on C64.
No naming and shaming?
I'll just put this here too: I'm sure they had loads of games back in 1929!
Everything should be documented. We have sex torture games, Ethnic Cleansing, and all sorts of crap. We are not promoting them, we just assert that they exist. I'd be happy if games like Under Ash never existed, but I'd never vote for removing them from here.
Stumbled into this on here too: Super Columbine Massacre RPG *blink*
Can't wait til they stumble across Newgrounds, circa 2000.
