Pretty sure that was made 2-4 years back. Never released on any actual platforms. Basically a hobby project by a startup. News likely just found it and is tying to make it a story now.

After the postal incident a game called Postal came out in 1997. Were you outraged then?

Same as Super Columbine RPG.

Its a stupid game made with little to no programming skills that only exists to make people flip out and get free advertising so a few people will buy it. It’s not like a AAA studio made this.

It it will get a few downloads now and every time a school shooting happens since they will point to this game as a cause of the shooting.

I was a beta tester for Postal. It was produced by Running with Scissors down in Tucson. You could kill a lot of stuff while the police were trying to catch you. But it was 1997 graphics, nothing like the blood and guts graphics in today's video games. It was more of a spoof and kind of funny than true blood and guts glory.

News alert -- Video games-* can be violent and are for entertainment purposes.

* - the operative word being "game", as opposed to training purposes.

But according to the critics, Doom, who's graphics were even worse, taught kids to kill!

Look at what it did to me! Made me a natural born killa!! Hahahaha!

Doom was all about killing mutant monsters. Used to play that silly game (and Wolfenstein) for hours on end. We used to have Quake tournaments in the office after work on our local LAN when it became popular, was the predecessor of the full-on Internet gaming of today. When you look at where video games have evolved in the past 25 years, it's pretty amazing. Gaming has and continues to drive technology forward -- faster processors, more RAM, lightning fast storage, incredible graphics cards and realism.

I don't play much anymore, but still like to shoot up some Call of Duty or Borderlands once in awhile. I have a copy of the original Doom, in its original box, and the full set of the 3.25 floppy disks it came on. I don't even have a computer that has that kind of drive anymore. But somebody somewhere does and will pay big bucks just to have that original set in their collection!
