Kennedy assassination re-created in video game


Recommended Posts

I think this is an outrage that this game is even allowed on the market. For one thing, you play the gunman that kills Kennedy. Secondly the video game developer has designed the game so that it fits the official way Kennedy was killed which was by a lone gunman. Despite the fact that film footage shows a shot coming from behind and from the grassy knoll in front of Kennedy. Its amazing how people are denying what is plainly visible. Its like watching film footage of a bank being robbed and then say the bank wasnt robbed. We all know it was a conspiracy that the government cover-up and Marilyn Monroe was involve with the Kennedys too and she knew too much so she had to be killed too. Do they think people are fools? anyway this game shouldnt be allowed on the market.

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.

"It is despicable," said David Smith, a spokesman for Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy, the late president's brother. He was informed of the game on Friday but declined further comment.

Kirk Ewing, managing director of the Scottish firm Traffic Games, which developed the game, said he understood some people would be horrified at the concept, but he insisted he and his team had nothing but respect for Kennedy and for history.

"We believe that the only thing we're exploiting is new technology," said Ewing, a former documentary filmmaker and senior executive with Scottish developer VIS, responsible for games like "State of Emergency." He said he sent Edward Kennedy a letter before the game's release.

Ewing said the game was designed to undermine the theory there was some shadowy plot behind the assassination. "We believe passionately there was no conspiracy," he said.

Traffic Games said the objective was for a player to fire three shots at Kennedy's motorcade from assassin Lee Harvey Oswald's digitally recreated sixth-floor perch in the Texas School Book Depository.

Points are awarded or subtracted based on how accurately the shots match the official version of events as documented by the Warren Commission, which investigated Kennedy's assassination.

Shooting the image of Kennedy in the right spots in the right sequence adds to the score, while "errors" like shooting first lady Jacqueline Kennedy lead to deductions.

Each shot can be replayed in slow motion, and the bullets can be tracked as they travel and pass through Kennedy's digitally recreated body. Players can choose to see blood by pressing a "blood effects" option.

Players can view the motorcade from a number of angles, including the perspective of filmmaker Abraham Zapruder and a view from the "grassy knoll" where some conspiracy theorists believe a second gunman was stationed.

The game will be available via download for $9.99.

Maybe a little bit of conspiracy there cityboi... But I agree, the fact that this game was even concieved of is deplorable. However, as much as I hate it, this is America, and any attempt to stop it would be viewd as a restriction on freedom of speech. Hopefully people will see it for what it is and not buy it.

It's very very sick that they come up with a game like this...

However it wasn't entirely a conspiracy.

Oswald was in fact the lone gunman, but the fact that the parade ran right by his building instead of continuing down Main street (it was planned to run the route it did, but it's suspicious) it turned next to the book depository... Clearly opening him to a shot from the front and then the back (as they turned right on that one road, then left at the book depository)...

The History Channel did a special showing how Oswald was in fact the lone gunman. They even used computer graphics which took the locations of the bullet holes from Conelly and Kennedy and they all pointed towards that 6th floor window...

But Oswald didn't do it all by himself despite what his brother or others may say... He shot JFK himself, but it was all planned by the Government, possibly even going as high was Johnson...
