On April 16, 2007, Virginia Tech student Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people and wounded many more in the deadliest school shooting to ever take place in history. It wasn’t long before Ryan Lambourn posted his own take on the events via his Flash game, V-Tech Rampage on Newgrounds.com. Unlike Super Columbine Massacre RPG, there’s really no way to make an argument that V-Tech Rampage attempts to approach the subject of school shootings in any sort of thoughtful way. Instead, the awful game just has you gun down as many students as possible and tells you not to be “such a wuss” if you fail to kill your girlfriend.
“FOR FUCKS SAKE IT WAS A JOKE,” says Lambourn in all caps on his website. We know it was a joke. It’s just that the joke was rude, tasteless and about as funny as a KKK parade on Martin Luther King Jr. Street.
