How do you like this? This %&**% has made a game based on Virginia Tech? That has got to be one of the things made in the worst possible taste....

This is trolling in real life. Behold, ye trolls, and see how people may be hurt!

This has got to be one of the most disgusting things that has occurred....

He should be dealt with. He's even blackmailing.....

Basically, the %%(% wants a cash incentive to apologise. That's blackmail. And he says he is doing it to piss people off.

Grrrrrrrrr..... :evil:

How dare he do this?

Whilst I agree that what he has done is wrong, how is it any different from any other game, say Americas Army, where you kill people. He has merely picked a much less acceptable topic for than most.
He should be locked up for emotional blackmail mind...

Hmph. America's Army, admittedly, is dubious in of itself, but the creators of that game, or indeed most others, do not deliberately make games to piss people off.

Exactly. How about that game Grand Theft Auto?

Btw, the maker this Virgina Tech game won't be winning any awards for graphics.

The GTA games, tasteless though they are, are not based on real life events, and are in fact pastiches of crime and action movie cliches. Plus, they have punishments to fit the crimes you can commit.....

There is a difference between a game were people shoot back and a "game" where you just murder people. I do realize that people that many people object to America's Army and claim it is some kind of propaganda tool, and while I do do not share those objections, even if I did it would still not be comparable; unless I suppose any and all killing including those who are shooting at you (such as in games like Rainbow Six or Medal of Honor is morally objectionable.

Well he got his ransom money, V-Tech Rampage is now offline.
I bet it's the easiest money that guy ever made for designing a piss-poor computer game.
A case of Don't Feed The Trolls, but no-one listens.

Weak. A three year old could do better with a copy of a Doom level editor. This was just to piss people off.

I don't believe in censorship - so I voted no. However, I think it is tasteless bullsh*t and I think that anyone with an ounce of human decency should avoid it and let the issue die of neglect.
