DENVER, Colorado (AP) – An online game based on the Columbine High School massacre is drawing criticism from a father whose son died in the 1999 attack, saying it trivializes the actions of the two teen killers.
I can’t believe someone would make a video game out of the horrible thing that took place at Columbine High School. The game is titled Super Columbine Massacre RPG.
What really bothers me is the fact the game creators actually used investigative material, including images of Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, who killed 12 classmates and a teacher before committing suicide. The game even uses actual images of students running and crying. At least they didn’t use photos of any victims.
I’m all for video games but they’re suppose to be for entertainment and enjoyment. How can playing a game based on true facts about what took place at Columbine High School be fun?
