Virginia Tech Shooting Game?

Danny Ledonne the creator of the highly controversial game,"Super Columbine Massacre RPG!" which is based on the murderer of 13 people at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado in 1999. Shares his thoughts of the Virginia Tech shooting and answers the question that has been asked so often lately has been "will you make a game out of the Virginia Tech shooting?"

Quote Ledonne:

My answer is "I will not be." I will not be because it has not been something that I am personally connected to; the shooting at Columbine (which hit so close to home for me – literally and figuratively – during my sophomore year of high school) was not only an American tragedy in the broadest sense but also a clarion call for change in my own life. Having said this, one might ask if I think an interactive project (a "video game") about the shooting at Virginia Tech can be made. My answer is "absolutely." Societies throughout history have dealt with pain, tragedy, and suffering with art in a multitude of forms and ours is no exception. There will be poems about this shooting, there will be books about it, films about it, paintings about it, and indeed I do not believe the medium of interactive electronic media should be excluded from exploring the sorrows and challenges of the human experience.

I pray for the sake of gaming nobody ever makes this game ...or anything like it. The Jack Thompson's of the world will use this like wild fire to further hit gaming below the belt and talk about its negative affects on society.

The day we kneel down to the censors will be a sad day indeed. You shouldn't 'not' do something because your afraid you might offend someone..I know thats a double negative, but you get my point. You shouldn't be liable for other peoples feelings caused by your voiced opinions. Those people are entitled to their feelings, but you are also entitled to yours, which is the essence of Free Speech.

Next-generation toys read brain waves

Adding biofeedback to "Tiger Woods PGA Tour," for instance, could mean that only those players who muster Zen-like concentration could nail a put. In the popular first-person shooter "Grand Theft Auto," players who become nervous or frightened would have worse aim than those who remain relaxed and focused.

I could see games like this preparing a person to become relaxed in violent scenarios, but for people to say it is the sole cause is just not the case.
