A new video game that is over the line?

Glasgow, Scotland -- A British company said Sunday it was releasing a video game recreating the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy

In a dicussion this morning on CNN, it was said that the company will offer a prize to the first player that can show that three shots were fired from the book depository.

The video showed that the player is looking throgh the gunsight on Oswald's gun as the motorcade is passing, and takes shots at the President.

I know that many video games are violent, but - and I will stand corrected- players are trying to shoot bad guys and monsters.


Story in a New Zealand newspaper gives more details:

Poor taste. No respect. But, anything for a buck, I guess. Same sad face here.

Ugh, yes.

Notice it is from a British company, not a respectable USA company.

After 9-11, Microsoft changed their "Flight Simulator" to not show the twin towers in NYC. I have their Flight Simulator 98 and 2000 and the different large commercial planes can be flown into the towers at different angles, heights, with the aircraft even sticking out of the buildings. I do not allow my grandkid access to those.

I have a large collection of games, many 1st person shooter types, that my grandkids also play. Would never permit a tasteless game like that in my collection.
