Geez some people will do anything to make a buck, even make a game to recreate what happened on 9/11. This is totally distasteful and wrong.

This looks like it might be non-av material.

It's not a game, it looks like it's an add-on pack for Unreal Tournament.

You have games about the cold war, games with nuclear bombs, games where you can kill lowly ragheads, what's wrong with this?

Yeah, back in the 80's I got had one of the original SEGAs. I had this 3-D game called "Missile Defense." It was one of those cold war era games where the Russians were firing off nukes left and right at the US and you had to intercept them, otherwise the entire population dies from nuclear fallout. Fun game.

I agree, it is a terrible idea for a game. However 777236ER
has made an excellent point. You see nothing wrong with those games but there's something wrong with this one?

Too soon, and few of those games are modeled after real life events like these.

I don't see anything wrong with this. Who among us hasn't wondered in the back of our minds, with a chill, what it would have been like to be in the Towers that awful day? I'm sure that many of us would not like to relive those moments, but others may simply want to "see" what happened, beyond the news reports, and the legends. Frankly, this has the potential to be more chilling than any Resident Evil-type game.

As for selling it, I don't see anywhere on the site where it's being offered for sale, now or in the future. It seems to me, especially from the graphics quality, that it's simply a game mod being designed by amateur programmers. I'd be surprised if they were going to actually sell this in stores.

That i do not believe. It's a mod for Unreal Tournament and hence is not being sold for money. They are generally released for free for everyone to donwload from the internet. It is not a game itself, just an addon.

This game is stupid. Not even because of the subject matter, but because they were going for realism, and it's not too factual. So let's just that if made right, this game could be fun for argument's sake.

first, they talk about escaping from WTC after the crash. They "drop" you at a random part of the building and you have to escape from there. Some people can survive and some can't.

But the thing is, that at WTC on 9/11, if you were above a certainly floor, you died regardless, you had no chance of escape. If yoiu were below certain floors, you survived unless you were handicapped or unable to move yourself. Only about 17 or 18 people that were AT or ABOVE the crash zones managed to escape through a back stairwell that they used practically seconds before it got consumed by flames.

I jus tfigure that once you realize where you are and the plane crashes, you know whether you're going ot die or not, if it's real. And then the ..."fun"..... is gone.

I was also unimpressed by the story on the home page. Besides obvious spelling errors, I would like to meet someone who is in a burning building with loud fire around them and can hear SIRENS on the ground fomr 87 floors up? No, not gonna happen.

Not that I jsut patheticlaly nitpicked this game becuase i'm grumpy and hungover, I'm going to go buy it and play it.

I guess the idea for that mod is as bad as this paintball game:

However if you click on any link on the site you'll see that it's a extremely tasteless atempt by some conspiracy theorist's to get attention. Sickening.

Question is...

...where do you draw the line? There's plenty of WWII games where you kill german/allied soldiers. What do our veterans think of that? As for this Unreal WTC add-on patch... how soon is too soon for that kind of thing? Is it okay if we release it in 10 years? 20? When everyone is relatively all "mourned out"?

We have always been fascinated by traumatic events. Even posters who declare this an offence to the victims/families/survivors and friends probably, as I did, clicked on the pics and descriptions on that website. It's human nature.

Related to this... photojournalism has permitted us to pictures of conflicts like the Vietnam war and events like Tianmen square massacre available to all while sitting comfortably on the La-Z-Boy.

So it's different for everybody. As for me, I wouldn't feel bad playing that patch. But I am disgusted by that Columbine scenario paintball game.

Hypocrit? I'll be the first to admit that I am. Moral boundaries is something very hard to discuss without coming to a roadblock at one point or another...

Columbine Paintball is not an actual paintball facility, nor is there any monetary profits related to Columbine Paintball, as too many people seem to believe. However, the ignorant mail people have sent us is pathetic, and demonstrates very clearly how much of the American people is uneducated, ignorant, illiterate, are mindless unoriginal zombie clones that will believe anything without question or relying on their own judgment to analyze information veracity, to then actually come up with an original, unique, intelligent perspective to be used in a relevant discussion.




I would take that as an huge insult if i was an american citizen. I'm almost laughing my pants off reading the lines "then actually come up with an original, unique, intelligent perspective to be used in a relevant discussion".

Keep in mind that these are the same guys that blatantly try to fool people into believing that a U.S missile hit the pengtagon instead of flight 77. Amongst other things that are completely out of this world. Read throught that site for yourselves, it's bloody hilarious at times. The existance of opinions like the ones above is partly the reason why i'm planning on taking a major in psychology. It's amazing what the human mind can come up with in certain situations.
