It would make for a neat game from the perspective of security guard or something like that.
Guess what I do for a living... and no it's not a neat perspective.
I'm not shocked. There was quite an outrage over a game called Postal back in the mid-90's for the same reasons. The game still came out, but there was no advertising for it.
During my time as an assistant store manager at Gamestop, I had seen and heard a lot of strange things. Nothing however was as disturbing as this.
I was told that there was a last minute conference call with our district manager to discuss an upcoming game. This was odd since I knew there weren't any AAA titles coming at the time (at least none that we hasn't prepared for). During the call I was told about "School Shooter: North American Tour 2012"
We were told in no uncertain terms that we would not be offering this title or any information about this title to anyone. At first I thought it had to be a joke, I mean who would make a game like that?
Nope, not a joke.
Thankfully, due to justified outrage, the game will not be coming out. The host website that the game was going to be released for download on has also been shut down.
What are your thoughts on this?
