One of the most controversial violent video games in recent memory was created by a 25-year-old Colorado man named Danny Ledonne. His game is called Super Columbine Massacre RPG! You may have guessed that it is based on the murder of 13 people at Columbine High School in 1999.
In the game, the player assumes the identity of one of the killers, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. The player goes on to overcome certain obstacles to commit the crime. He then dies and battles demons in hell.
