There's a new game on the market, "JFK Reloaded."
For $9.99 you can download a game that lets you to pretend to be Lee Harvey Oswald with a rifle in the Texas School Book Depository. As Kennedy's motorcade drives by, players can fire three shots like Oswald. Points are awarded and subtracted based on how close the player comes to matching the official version of events as documented by the Warren Commission. Players can even make the game even bloodier by pressing a "blood effects" option.
I can't say I'm surprised by this, considering there already are games that let you mimic what it was like to storm the beaches at Normandy or shoot bad guys in Iraq. My only surprise is that no one has created one that lets you take a bead on Dubya. Posted by Jeff at December 5, 2004 10:10 AM | TrackBack

I should be appalled by this. I really should.
