We saw it coming from a mile away. If you've heard about V-tech Rampage, a Flash game simulating the events of the biggest shootout in the U.S., you know that some lawyer from somewhere would stand up and say something against it - even if he has no idea what he's talking about.

Coming from New York, Senator Andrew Lanza came up to say something against the game. "There are certain things in life you don't make light of and should not be turning into a game. It's not a game, it's a tremendous loss of life."

We may share his sentiment, but we know more than asking retailers and manufacturers to shun the game. He even compared V-tech Rampage, a Flash game made by unemployed 21-year old Ryan Lambourn (Sydney, Austraila), to upcoming commercial game Grand Theft Auto IV.

As if unfamiliar to the gaming scene, he commented "You've got Grand Theft Auto where you murder police officers. To me, I can't imagine people marketing and distributing it, and putting it in the hands of kids, but it's happening." Apparently, he has no idea about Flash games that thousands of users create everyday, to compare it with actual commercial games and talk to retailers, manufacturers, and websites about it.

Well....I guess this was really bound to happen. Well, I would love a comment on this one from PigPen. :P Is this Mission Failed or Accomplished? :P Oh and I'm for keeping it on NG, after all, it's a Flash Game, there's always a little X button since no ones forcing you to play it.

ok jews do suck, but that is unrelated. the types of people who hate this guy are just following classic mob mentality. a couple hundred years ago he would have been burned at the stake. so, come on ca you really blame faceless idiots for hopping on the bandwagon of morality and political correctness? I think not.

Notice how all the kids that defended this game, along with the creator, seem to be a bunch of either total dumbasses or kids that are made fun of or bullied? Makes me cheerful that God was way ahead of the game by making them like that. :)

Ha yeah I noticed Jack Thompson claimed the shootings were a result of violent video games, I'm surprised he's not making a stand against the game.

To Original Post:

I feel the game iteself wasn't too bad and was playable, but the whole week that followed the tragedy showed the absolute worst in Newgrounds and this game is a direct example of poor taste.

Yes I do feel that it should be taken down as he's trying to make a profit from it. It's just tasteless. I mean, people FROM VATech use this site, too you know. They should have to put up with this crap.

whoa...
There are a lot of games on NG that make fun of a tragedy,(whole "Bastard" collection) and there always were people who wanted to fight with them...
The game itself is not to good. I mean, the graphic look like they were made in paint, there is no fun in this game, it feels like postal but much worse...
And the whole "Give me money, and i'll take it down" thing just ain't right. some people may be offended by this game...
Ok so i think the game should the taken down form NG.

well i just read the Wikipedia version of the V-tech madness and my opinion is to remove the game from NewGrounds for the sake of the truth.
From how Wikipedia pictures it, it wasn't love that brought the killer to do it, but racism. not the mention that he was declared mentally ill, accused to have stalked two female students and was bullied for having speech problems which i believe it were because he wasn't able to speak American well. read here for proof
Frankly all i can say is that PIGPEN is making fun of the truth, and i agree with some that say that he wants money to remove it is to piss off people, but NG should, for the sake of those that were involved, delete it or at least remove it from the Bastards collection.

Thats from a Pm.

and we have the bastard collection, it has things on 9/11.

Submit it their, and the 30 or so killed at Vtech shrivels in comparison to the Oklahoma city bombing or the september 11th attacks.

I myself will make a game where you rape the kiddies in the Dunblane massacre and lol in ppl's faces if they want me to take it down.

It's poor taste but I wouldn't want Newgrounds to start filtering that way.

However the author is asking money to take it down, this is ridiculous. "Haha I'm making a movie making fun of a recent tragedy. I'll remove it for cash!"
The movie should be deleted before we start seeing another stupid money trend in this site. Especially one this stupid.

klonnicus, you're so fucking stupid.
For one thing, quote the correct way, with the quotes FIRST so we know what the hell you're talking about.
And, if you beleive that if something is personally offensive to you it has to stop, and the V-Tech game is offensive to people....
Right?

Does this game have any merit, or is it strictly an exercise in poor taste? Are you offended by it? Did you enjoy playing it? Should it be taken down? What do you think?

Fixed. Hate to jump on the bandwagon, but this site is full of flash movies and games focusing on all kinds of offensive subjects. Removing the VTech game for the sake of 'decency' would just be hypocritical - we're talking about Newgrounds here, the home of Teletubby Fun Land, 9/11 DDR and Rats on Cocaine.

Would you like the Columbine Games (especially Pico), and the 9/11 flashes taken down too?

you i will respond to nicely, yes the Pico and 911 games offend me but 911 happened in 2001 and columbine in 1999. soon after i believe a month after columbine, the great tom fulp released Pico's School. Although i do not like the fact that this game was released soon after Columbine happened. There is shit that can be done about this and anything else, such as the V-Tech Game.

I think this is RIDICULOUS!!! I am going to be a freshman at Virginia Tech and I don't want some jerk creating a game that glorifies that tragic day when my best friend lost a close friend. I personally think that this is obscene and needs to be taken off. Who cares about freedom of speech? This has gone WAYYYY to far.

There's a place for people like the creator of this game, it's called insane asylums.

You're a hypocrite with an alias like Pico. That school shooting game came out a month after Columbine. Think before you speak.

People that live in a democracy. His right to make this game trumps your bad feelings about it.

Making a game like this does not constitute sending him to an insane asylum.

...Or that I simply don't spend all of my time on a forums like some of you, and consequently was offline. By using 'LOL PWN3D' you made any opinion of yours invalid in my eyes. Also its notable that my comment wasn't arguing anything (in that post), but it was merely a comment. This further invalidates your opinion, since you showed that you are a total dumbass.

And fuck you to all of you Virginia Tech students here. Take some responsibility and take some of the blame, bitches.

Oh right I forgot that if a few people provoke a psycho its acceptable and expected that he is to kill a mass number of people and it becomes our fault. Once again, you're a dumbass. In my view, there's nothing argue here. VA Tech killing was wrong, and if you challenge this statement than you're fucked in the head. But there certainly are a number of ignorant people here indeed even supporting the VA massacre, and encouraging and reinforcing each others ideas, since its just a majority of idiots. The fact that someone would say 'Ha-Ha' followed by <Insert tragedy or Massacre here> is just ignorant beyond belief. Thats all I have to say, but expectedly the same mass of idiots will come and say shit back, and encourage each other, and enough of the idiots will agree, and someone will say 'LOL PWN3D' or something to that effect. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Freedom of Speech means nothing on this website. Freedom of speech does not matter on this website because it is privatly owned and he is not one of the owners. Its the reason that his website has been taken down. Freedom of speech is the right to make the game and put it on the internet but if it breaks the terms of service with the place hosting it then it would be taken down. Also since newgrounds does host it they can take it down if they want its just their decision. Freedom of Speech has nothing to do with it being on this website.

Yes, people have expressed displeasure over the fact that NG hosts those games, so please stop posting if you're just going to make wild assumptions like that.

For Blommstein, in no way am I defending the actions of school shooters. What I was pointing out was your cavalier attitude towards the manner in which kids (not just bullied ones) today think, feel and then act on those feelings. Bullied kids aren't just wallflowers anymore. With the way the media works itself into a frenzy whenever one of these events happens, a lot of them see violence on a grand scale to be the one way they can be in control and be remembered for it in perpetuity.

Keep it up. If this is the most offensive thing somebody'll ever see, they must've lead a very sheltered life (not to mention that they must have a very thin skin).

Newgrounds shouldn't get into the business of censoring stuff that's passed into the portal for content reasons unless it's required to do so by law (e.g. libellous flash movies).
