Personaly I took no offence, but I can see why these kinds of things offend people. When Steve Erwin died a game was made with him avoiding(or killing) stingrays, a tad suss indeed. But in all, a game's a game. If everyone took offence too the killing of others, there would be no WW2 or Vietnam type games, shooters or otherwise.

Haha yeah you have to admit Newgrounds would be getting a lot of unique hits from your game, I never knew the game existed untill I read this thread, hasn't been in the West Aussie media. The games not even bias its the equivalent of watching a documentary or news report on the incident just in a narrative form.

im not reall sure if it should be taken down or not.

but what really sickens me is how Pigpen said that if enough people deposit money into his account THEN he'll take the game down.

he sounds like an asshole


when LIFE gives you lemons, make lemonade. then find someone who's LIFE is giving them vodka, and have a party

Yet it's not on the Front page. And ppl whine about this, but the 9/11 games got no backlashes. Oh how about Madness School 2. That was like VA tech too. Sorta.

Well, it really isn't anything differant from the other "offensive" flashes around the internet, as well as newgrounds. I say it should stay. If the creator want's to take it down, fine by him.

No... this thread exists because, if there's somethng especially noteworthy (which V-Tech Rampage is, for better or for worse) happening in the NG community, we want to give everyone a place to discuss it on the frontpage. Would you rather be ignored?

Blatantly he wouldn't..

PigPen, serious question - how do you feel now? Are you sorta feeling a bit eary that all this has happened from a little jokey game, are you proud, trying to hide your face a bit, what?

The problem with this is that if the ball starts rolling where does it stop. The KKK currently still exists and they have a right to be idiots if they choose to be. I think as far as gameplay this is fairly normal for some of the ones I see online. Yes, its unoriginal and a pile of steaming crap. Still, he has a right to make it. Then again I think his greed is what makes this different. He's not just doing it to prove any feelings. He using it as a scam, a creative one though. Should we support it? No. I think it should be brought down for that reason alone. Thats like mailing the victims relatives pictures of the event, saying you'll stop if they pay up. His morals are shot. He doesn't deserve to profit from others misery. Sounds to me like he needs to get out of his dingy little comp chair more often.

That's a bad analogy. If anyone found the game, it's because they looked for it, not because it was delivered specially to their emails.

Why even try to argue about this on an intellectual level? This is the internet. If something offends you, click the little x in the corner. I'm pretty sure this doesn't break any laws so why should it even be an option that it be taken down?

Well true i don't think it has broken any laws either, but i heard the federal government might of stepped in on the taking down of his personal website. That or the website provider took it down. Who knows neither can be confirmed thought and i heard this through the news but do you always believe what you read and see?

And your right this is the net and there is a little X button.

I can see why people are making a big thing about this game. But i don't see a reason to take it down. Knowone is forcing anyone to play it. It's just a matter of time before this slides out of the media eye and they'll be talking about something else.


Man..I've been gone a while o.O..

Free speech is vital to the survival of our country. It should not be illegal to create or distribute a game like Rampage, and the day our government tries to throw someone in jail for doing so is the day I start burning it onto discs and handing it out. But with that said, how much we ought to be able to do things like that is an almost altogether separate issue from whether or not it is morally right for us to do those things.

One question is that of when we should be allowed to do wrong, and the other is that of if it is wrong. Think about smoking. Should a person be allowed to smoke? Absolutely. But does that mean that it is healthy for them to do so, or that it is the right thing to do? Absolutely not. People have a right to dig themselves a grave one pack at a time, but that doesn't make it healthy or moral.

Whoever made that game has a right to make it, but that doesn't mean that they are justified morally. The harm they are doing by making that game is emotional rather than physical, and so they have a right to cause it, but that doesn't make it any more right. While to have a government that works we need to have our laws based on physical rather than psychological protection, that doesn't have anything to do with what is moral.

Newgrounds isn't a government organization, and so they aren't obligated to give everyone a platform. And I hope that everyone at Newgrounds realizes that for me to support free speech I don't have to give everyone equal access to my personal megaphone or printing press. I am not the government and so I am personally responsible for any message I print or otherwise relay. And every person on the Newgrounds staff that has the power to delete that game but doesn't, is personally responsible for the hurt that it causes people.

I hope you all listen to your conscience, and keep in mind that how guilty you are has nothing to do with how many others are also guilty.
