It's a GAME! It's only slightly challenging at one point, but it was a quick shoot 'em distraction. Get enough people to see anything and you have a great chance that someone will find it offensive. HOW MANY WWII GAMES ARE THERE? edn.

I'm just pissed that schools don't do anything about the real cause, bullying. Eric and Dylan were teased for being goth, Cho for being Asian, Jeff wiese for being Natine indian.. The list goes on. You'd think the school would do something, but they love their precoius jocks too much to punish them for bullying.

It seems to me that people want this game be taken down because it is offensive. However, Nobody has the right to not be offended.

If people did have a right not to be offended, Newgrounds would have down years ago. My clothes would be gone because some people are offended by persons wearing something that came from an animal. My steak dinner would have been taken away due to vegetarians being offended that someone is eating meat. I would have been fined or arrested numerous times for offending people by yelling "fuck" or making some gestures I made.

If this game makes you angry, good! You should be angry and you got the right to give whoever a piece of your mind! I was angry at the Spider-Man 3 movie! Peter Parker cried 11 times for christ sake! I don't want to ban any display of crying made by Spider-Man, I just don't want to see that dumb movie again.

Yes, the V-tech massacre was a awful event that occurd and should never be repeated. People may take years get over it, but some people get over it more quickly then others; And when they do, they will speak what they thought about it without the burden of pain or sorrow in their hearts, and what they say will seem to be cruel to those that hasn't got over it.

However, as cruel is it may seem, the game will stay because nobody has the right to not be offended.

The game is pretty fun if you ask me.

Sure, people may be offended, and it may deal with a tragedy that occured recently, but think about it, the Oklahoma bombing game is still up (and that game really wasn't that great!).

Anyways, who cares if it offends you, just because you're offended by it doesn't make it offensive to everyone, and it certainly doesn't constitute the creator as being a psychopath or whatever. I don't think most of you understand that he was probably aiming for this sort of outrage to be created. He's having fun while doing this, and it doesn't necessarily show his views ont he entire VT massacre situation. He may be poking fun at the event, but think about it: how many of you have cracked Holocaust jokes? You don't to be hating towards the event, you're just having fun. So why can't this guy have the same right?

This game, hm.

Well lets look at the things related to the game.

First is the concept. You are that Seung guy and you go around killing people. You do it through various levels with different objectives. You kill people, you talk to people, you kill yourself. That is the game, and that is that.

The author. Promotes free speech. Says you shouldn't be offended and if you are, tough luck.

The author said he would take it down if everyone gave him money.

Now the incident.

A whacked out asian kid went around and killed people. Largest one man shooting in American history.

Took place at VA. Tech, a university in Virginia. Just a flat out dramatic event.

Now we have a person who made a game. We all knew it was inevitable that a game would be made about iteven though the world would be better without it.

But as far as terms of him trying to promote free speech he is just a liar. He said he would take it down for money. If he really supported that he would never have offered that. He is just being a greedy little kid. A true activist for freedom of speech would never do that so he is just being an attention whore and greedy using the emotions of others to make a name for themselves. Honestly if you knew anyone who was in that shooting, a family member, a friend, would you still make a game like that. would you want to reenact the killing of your loved one. If so you are definitely an asshole who should rethink their existence.

However this is not the first time a game came out like this. There was one made about the calumbign shooting a time back when for a video game contest. But it was disqualified in later rounds since things like that cause to much trouble.

Do you feel bad for the people who died on 9/11? Did you give a shit when those people died? What about the people who died in Indonesia tsunami or the Oklahoma City bombing? If you don't, then I suggest you check out those little gems.

I do feel bad for all of them and i dont think any of that should be made a joke of either...and i think the games about those tragedies should be taken down too...im not saying that only the vt game should be taken down...so dont question the way i feel about anything if you dont know...i do give a shit!

Well... ya know what... im not offended by it, and nobody else is either. They pretend to be because they think they are supposed to. The world is a crappy place because nobody truly cared about that shooting unless they knew somebody in it. The reason nobody cared is because that stuff happens all the time. One review of that game said it was too soon for the game to be made.... wtf... too soon ehh? Time should not make a difference, especially since you never cared in the first place. Personally.... i didnt like the game, because it was boring and i couldnt beat it :( lol
too soon eh? I wonder if the survivors of the titanic would shit a brick if they saw
THIS . go ahead and google "titanic slide" ...THAT i think is in poor taste.

Ive ridden down that before.... about 4 years ago... it sucked. i was 10 years old... and my brother was gonna bring his knife stick it in and then slide down but he forgot the knife....

all im sayin is... you didnt care, i know you didn't... dont hide it.

so the hate goes around in circles, and continues to feed on everyone's opinions and emotions. the game has manifested into something intangible, but felt by everyone. it does nothing by itself, but influences all from the angelic souls to the heartless devils...

all because of a few random newspapers and blogs!?!? seriously i didn't even hear about it till i saw this forum. i think this 'media attention' thing is only seems significant in itself. and this game isn't made by some organization or anyone important, just some high school dropout in Australia!! Nowhere even close to the United States, let alone Virginia... What do we care what he thinks?

and for the v-tech haters, 99.99% of you probably never even HEARD of the school until it hit the news, unless you flunked out of it or something to that degree, which means WE DON'T CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK (at least I don't anyway...) SO STFU!

okay let the flame wars begin! i've got my newspaper bunker ready!

the game was decided to be on the portal when it made it through the judgement process, obviously enough people felt it wasnt crap so it should stay on. its not racist, pornographic, or worse than other submissions. it should stay up

Personally, the game seems mediocre. Personally, I also believe it's in bad taste.

However, it was apparently playable enough to pass judgment, earning the right to remain. Also, neither my opinion nor that of any other individual should hold enough weight to decide the viability of someone else's form of expression, no matter how gross or grotesque, if it doesn't directly impinge upon the rights of others.

That said, the choice to create was PiGPEN's. As with any decision, there could be repercussions. He accepted responsibility for whatever came when the game was submitted for public consumption. Newgrounds is simply a showcase; when offensive art is placed in a gallery, it's the artist who catches flak (usually, and rightfully so), not the gallery. Websites such as Newgrounds should be treated no differently than any other exhibitor of any other form of media.

In short: let it stay.

Well that makes your opinion a bit biased, doesn't it?
There's the fact that if you weren't a student at that school then you wouldn't give jack shit about the game. If it were about some other tragic day you wouldn't care either.

Just because you can play it doesn't mean it should stay.I mean theres hundreds of those damn quiz games that get blammed but are still playable.

Still even though this game kinda stinks there's alot of worse ones here.

Wow this is one fun topic! If people gets offended so easily, they shouldn't have any media around them at all! Frankly I don't see the problem of this submission, as it's simply computer graphics... a binary code damnit... 10011000100111101101010 . Did that offend you? The only problem here are the people who for some reason thinks that making a game about this episode is morally despicable. And as the great keepers of morale they start ranting about that "the game is evil!!!"

Then the author says that by getting paid he will remove the submission. I can understand that, wouldn't you like to get paid when something you worked on gets removed because someone didn't like it... You wouldnt assume that a car mechanic would fix your car for free would you? However that the submission stays is reward enough for most amateur artists.

And finally removing a submission because some people simply doesn't like it? That would be the start of the demise of Newgrounds, as I see it.
