Maybe someone with a flamethrower should walk into the development HQ and burn it to the ground. Then they can include that into their next game.

Sad commentary on us as a society to be certain.

Does illustrate the necessity of conceal/carry though.

Not much different than killing civilians in GTA.

Hmmm this game could actually be a ploy to identify those with issues. And just found an article somewhat relative to the path of the thread.

No it isn't.
But GTAs goal was not to go on a mass murder spree and end the lives of as many civilians and LEO as possible.

I can't even begin to contemplate what the goals of this game would be.

While you can do it in GTA, you don't have to. It isn't an integral part of the game, and when you do it, it's a bit more detached. The hooker you're beating to death to get your money back isn't screaming and begging for her life like shown in the trailer for this game.

Maybe splitting hairs to some people, but I think there is a line, and GTA is on one side, and this game is on the other side.

Both Russia and China do not report accurate statistics on their military spending.

In China's case, it is also easier to spend less when you hack American designs (see JSF copy).

The US is too busy fighting everyone's battles to worry about the ultimate cost to this nation and our budget. This is why I think we have seen the popularization of Libertarian ideas and candidates. I welcome the discussion and 3rd party. Goodness knows that neither Republicans or Democrats represent me.

The statistics on gun violence and death in this country are misleading as well.

We have more guns = more gun death. The violent crime rate statistics are highly manipulated.

Like this is BADDDD

When I was watching the trailer at first I thought exactly what it was. When he opened the door and walked outside I was relieved because I thought those were zombies out front. I think out loud I said "ok phew"

Then I realized they were not zombies and this is exactly what I first thought.

When I was growing up we had black market games for various systems. Games like the Sex Olympics, Death Race 2000, and Leisure Suit Larry.

They were never endorsed by the system manufacturers and were not always easy to find. They certainly didn't have major studio backing or could be construed as anything but a bit of naughty fun.

This game crosses many lines for me and looks like a training simulation for one of these lone wolf nutbags.

I thought it was. I know they didn't necessarily keep it on the selves at the store. and they wouldn't rent you the disk unless you were over a certain age.

No way, you could go buy Leisure Suit Larry at Radio Shack. I know because I remember playing it on one of their computers there as a kid.

Anyone remember when they had computers you could go load software on and demo it at the stores?

My parents would go shopping and leave me at Radio Shack and I'd play Space Quest for the 181825th time.

I recall the multimedia-wonder-PC at Radio Shack known as the "Tandy Sensation". They always had it playing some whiz bang demo showing off the capabilities of the CD-ROM + Soundblaster. However, I don't remember being able to demo software on their computers that wasn't pre-loaded.

I am in total agreement with you. It's not that other games haven't had illicit or immoral aims at particular times, but this is a game where evil is the entire objective. There's no way to justify it as anything but evil. The fact that this is being developed to bring more attention to this evil and to make a protagonist out of the perpetrator is insane. The people who do this kind of stuff do it for attention. They have it in their minds that they will be the talk of the times and the subjects of much thought after their demise. They convince themselves it is the best way to get what they want - to be noticed by as many people as possible. Now we are supporting that deluded goal even more.

I feel like there was another game released sometime in the past 10 years that was very similar (no not GTA). Can't remember the name right now, but I definitely feel like we've seen this before.
