Kennedy assassination re-created in video game

LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- A new video game to be released on Monday allows players to simulate the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy.

The release of "JFK Reloaded" is timed to coincide with the 41st anniversary of Kennedy's murder in Dallas and was designed to demonstrate a lone gunman was able to kill the president.

This is sick! The FAQ page is a real winner, and makes me want to throw up with entries such as "Can you give me some background information on the role I am playing?"

I can't wrap my head around why someone would want to play the roll of assassin and kill a digital JFK.

You know, I was going to do something on this, but it seems like everyone jumped on the bandwagon before so I didn't...but since you brought it up:

What's the difference between "killing" a polygonal model of a no name person or "killing" a polygonal dead president? I'm thinking I've killed a president before in a video game (Robocop on the NES if my thinking is correct), just not a "real" one. How is this any different than say, a game based on Pearl Harbor? You're still killing real people, right? Now, I don't agree with this (it's just stupid), don't get me wrong. But, people are making SUCH a big deal over it. It's nothing to go nuts over.
