She told ABCNews.com that these types of low-quality games are not uncommon following a tragedy.

But BioShock Infinite was released before the bombing.

Remember the suicide bomber game on newgrounds and the big stink that one made?

well I remember it.

..ok.....that's all.

I'd rather play GTA Boston. Rockstar, chop chop.

How about Fallout: Boston?

"It's not enjoyable, and it's not engaging. It will disappear and hopefully, be forgotten."

Well not if you feature it on the most popular morning show and one of the most popular web portals it won't be forgotten.

I agree, who the hell makes jumper games anymore. If anything, a rhythm-based minigame would flesh out the action.

Waits for those dumb parent groups yelling bloody murder about video games

The game is called "Boston Marathon 2013: Terror on the Streets," in which a runner dodges crudely rendered pressure cooker bombs.

Seriously? Someone tried an attack on the guys by saying they're bad at "rendering" sprites?
"Hah, I bet I could draw a better pressure cooker than them. They're not just jerks, they're bad artists!"
Go back to journalism school.

Personally, I think the pressure cookers are done pretty well. The graphics aren't going to be at the Call of Halo level, but this hastily-made game has about the same depth of gameplay.

That would be a good farking game up until you burn to death in a barn.

I don't see what they're complaining about. It's not like you're the one dropping bombs. Bad taste, sure, but it could be worse.

Last I heard it was going to be in San Francisco, but that was about a year ago. I'm itching for some more Fallout.

A game where you shoot and run over the older brother would have been better..

Rattrap007: A game where you shoot and run over the older brother would have been better..


or maybe a duckhunt style game where the brothers are the ducks and they throw bombs at you... the dog of course would be a police k9 unit.

/i should get paid for these ideas...

No, you have the make the dog a jerk.  If it is a K9 unit then I wouldn't want to shoot it after he laughed at me.

There's a "tighten up the graphics on level 3" joke in here somewhere...


/Also waiting for the media to blame video games for all of this...
//perhaps the FBI finds an N64 in the attic and then the entire thing makes sense.

someone did something i don't like that only really harms people by hurting their feelings

i know, let's draw more attention to it and make more people aware of it so MORE people can have hurt feelings!

Don't you know that feelings are the most important issue of the past 20 years or so? It's ALL about people's hurt feelings.

Personally, an RPG where you can play as any member of theTsarneav extended family would be a blast.  That family is barely one step above gypsies and filled with enough crazy characters to build an MMO around.

Honestly not trying to make a political statement, stories that stir emotions and create anger are HUGE money making opportunities for news agencies.

They should combine this game with QWOP. Now that would be a challenging game. And if you hit a bomb, the OP keys stop working.

/cause you got no lower legs, obviously...

See that's just wasted potential. The Dorner story is cinematic, action-packed and tragic, and they reduce it to KFC racism? Seriously, you're one cop fighting against the system. You can't stand your crooked partner, who does so much shiat that when you rat on her she gets you fired. You escape from LAPD, avoid predator drones, seek help from the press, find and fight your partner, all in the quest to clear your reputation.

All that farking drama, and they do gunfight at the cabin + pick up KFC powerup?

Downloaded it, took about 5 minutes to beat. My sick sense of humor liked it, however it of course is in bad taste and probably will upset victims this soon after the incident. What I wonder is.....what do world war 2 veterans think of movies that make light of nazi's?

The following message plays after you beat it.

Congratulations!

You survived the Boston Marathon!

by sheer preserverance you have willed those asshole terrorists to stop terrorizing forever!

Everyone rejoices, the world is safe, and you get to have sex with Obama's wife. America forever

press spacebar to play again

There was a part where a guy was stroking his schlong that was rather funny. Random.
