Playing Columbine Reviews
I'm honestly convinced that ColumbineBound did open up a lot of avenues regarding mainstreamed art games. You know, your Bioshocks and your Fezzes and your Suda51 titles? Yeah, some dude who made a game solely to scream to the media about why they're merely outcasting the Erics and Dylans of the world into being just like Eric and Dylan with their endless slanted coverage of the media (Adam Landa, Jeff Weise, and Jared Loughner come to mind) managed to open up more avenues regarding games as opposed to your average RPG. Well, in the mainstream. In droves
Then again, hearing Jack Thompson try to give the audience a reason as to why video games need to be regulated (despite being a "recovering libertarian" and not advocating government censorship of other forms) is hilarious.
Probably the surprise of the year for me so far.
