Playing Columbine

"A polarizing game, a deadly shooting, a widespread protest. For the first time, it all comes together."

This intense documentary presents the effects of a video game on real life events. When the game Super Columbine Massacre RPG is released to critical and ethical questions, some wonder if the experience helped other potential shooters train for their mass executions. Interviews with actual survivors from the Columbine shootings and other experts question the role the game played in other tragedies. However, since the game raises questions of taste by letting players experience the high school shooting through the eyes of the killers, the argument gets heated and complicated.
