As many of you may already know, there's nothing I love more than playing videos games. So after purchasing the new Call of Duty: World at War, I have been starry-eyed at the possibilities. If they can make a video game about a WWII soldier then perhaps it's possible for me to finally kill a pixelated Sharon Tate with unborn fetus in tow in Charles Manson: Monsters in LA. Or I could decapitate that Japanese tourist in Terrorist Cell 3: Behind Enemy Lines.
Or perhaps we could all enjoy a slasher/adventure entitled John Holmes: Assassin in the Flesh. In this game, players maneuver porn-legend John Holmes' zombie corpse around Wonderland Avenue looking for the man or woman that gave him the AIDS virus which eventually took his life. In the meantime you get to shoot it out with drug pushers and pornography protesters. It would be damn hard to argue with 13 inches of justice.
This explosion of real life horrors being made into interactive games can only be seen as the progressive strides of mankind. What with pornography and virtual homicide so easily accessible, our vices are evolving into routine and accepted events rather than shady dealings that take place in darkened alleys. Now if we could only find a way to simulate shame and regret, we would never have to leave home.
