Valve slammed over "horrendous" Steam school-shooting game

Quote:Active Shooter, which at the time of publication is live on Steam and due for release on 6th June, is described by its developer as "a dynamic S.W.A.T. simulator". The idea is you're sent in to deal with a shooter at a school, but you can also play as the actual shooter, gunning down school children.

It looks like this:

Now, an anti-gun violence charity has called on Valve to pull the game from Steam. (We've asked Valve for comment but it has yet to respond.)

The developer of Active Shooter is called Revived Games, the publisher Acid. Revived Games' credits include White Power: Pure Voltage and Dab, Dance & Twerk.

"Acid", who plans to add a survival mode in which you play as a civilian and have to "escape or perform a heroic action such as fight against the shooter itself", took to Active Shooter's Steam page to defend the game. "First of all, this game does not promote any sort of violence, especially any soft [sic] of a mass shooting," Acid said.

Would playing this game increase the likelihood of a player committing violent acts in the real word, or is it a way to blow off Steam so they are less likely to act out on it? I played Postal years ago and besides that one little incident, nothing ever happened. chuckle.gif

That video games cause violence is unproven. People who played pong didn't become tennis stars.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Most games are too goofy to cause violence.
Although, others have been created to be so stupid that they may actually cause mental retardation.
