Now, I’m all on the side of the first amendment. Teachers and parents who are calling for banning this game? Nope, terrible idea.
But at the same time, goddammit, Steam. You’re the source of more than 90% of the games I buy, and I want to keep patronizing you. You require games with porn to be censored for their release via Steam. It is bullshit to censor porn, but to distribute games that allow people to score points by murdering civilians as they flee during a simulation of a mass murder at a school.
Hoping, really hoping, Steam makes the right call on this one.
Edit: to forestall a possible objection, this is absolutely different from distributing games that allow you to play fantasy violence–this game is capitalizing off of modern trends in murder, and their demographic is the population most vulnerable this particular sort of murder. (I count myself in a slightly different demographic that’s also vulnerable to this type of murder). Have some goddamned sense here, Steam.
