Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

September 10, 2008 -

Muslim Massacre, an amateur PC game, has drawn sharp criticism from Britain's Islamic community.

As reported by the Telegraph, the game was programmed by Eric Vaughn aka Sigvatr, an American who currently lives in Australia. The website for the game calls it "The Game of Modern Religious Genocide," and describes it as follows:

The United States of America has declared war on Islam! Take control of the American hero and wipe out the Muslim race with an arsenal of the world's most destructive weapons! Don't be a liberal pussy!

Mohammed Shafiq, head of the Ramadhan Foundation, a U.K.-based Muslim youth organization criticized the game:

Encouraging children and young people in a game to kill Muslims is unacceptable, tasteless and deeply offensive. There is an increase in violence in this country and some of it comes from video games. When kids spend six hours a day on violent games they are more likely to go outside and commit violence.

 

If it was the other way around, with a game featuring Muslims killing Israelis or Americans, there would be uproar and rightly so. We would urge ISPs to take action against sites like this.

For his part, Sigvatr was unapologetic in posts about his game on SomethingAwful:

I think it's pretending to be legitimate commentary and I'm sure there will be lots of people who defend it on those grounds, but ultimately it's just a game where you blow the gently caress out of arabs... Anyone is free to believe whatever they won't (sic) though, because I don't even know how to interpret it myself anymore. the bottom line is that I enjoyed making it and it's fun to play...

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

listen all the racist bast***s who said fuck islam... fuck all of ya and if islam is so bad come find a me omrfreepally93@yahoo and i will teach u not to mess with people who want to be left alone dammit!!

And we'll have Fun, Fun Fun now that Daddy blew all muslims away

I hope the game has a "Nuke Ryiad, Saudi Arabia" level and a bonus cheat letting the player behead the Saudi kings who enable the training of Saudi kids suicide terrorism. This blog should let the public suggest screens and situations to the developer. The game sounds like fun, fun, fun

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

This game is awesome. Brings back memories of C64 Commando, only faster and with better aim.

Additionally, its extreme political realism and wise, thoughtful portrayal of other cultures brings an entirely new dimension of depth to the game.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

 Obvious troll is obvious.

 

what about CnC red alert? We kill russians?

 

CnC Generals? We kill Chinese and Arabs?

 

WoW? We kill furries?

 

Unreal TOurnament? We Kill Egyptians!

 

GTA? We kill everybody!

 

Games = serious business

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

and as

Islam is such a shit stirring religion, all they do is moan, they commit a crime that kills loads of people they shut up, then something happens and they moan about it, someone says something like i am and im a racist for it, just go get fucked, you're all a bunch of wankers who cost us tax because you all live off benefits. You come here to live but you cause more trouble than good. Sadly in the UK we dont have tough enough sentences for scum like you. I say every muslim who commits a crime should be deported to india or somewhere like that, every british criminal should serve their time in prison end of.

 

Finally just think, what terrorist prison is mainly full of followers of islam, yep guantanamo bay, and most of you islamic scum moan that it's against their human rights, well shut up. A terrorist should be tortured to death because it's one less off the streets. Maybe i should run into a mosque with a pig strapped to me, wouldn't that be funny. ye i'm sure you'd start crying.

 

Now call me what you want but im sure im not the only person that feels this way, its just you know you've got us backed into a corner because now im called a racist. And for some of you muslims that do live their lives to a good standard and have a name for themselves this doesn't all apply to you.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

 Mr Anonymous coward,

Its a pity you feel such hatred about Islam. Do we hate other religions? Nope, not at all. I suggest you either increase your hatred and be hones to GOD to help you or stop crying with these bullshits.

By the way... the creator of the game has apologized in the media about this game.

Cheers,

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

This game is heaps fun, high scores anyone. 1574 muslims downed ^^

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

Peace should prevail and all races have right to have one.

But I see here, people mostly complaining about Islam and Muslims. Free World doesn't mean you are free to hurt others physically or emotionally.

If there would have been a game of Muslim hero killing all christians or americans... we as muslims would still condemn it. Killing germans in your games isn't good at all. this will ultimately arise a essence of hatred. Yes it was in real history but doesn't mean you scratch the dust over it from time to time and revive the essence of those times.

Normally we play games where we kill bunch of bad guys, robbers, criminal gangs etc... but this one by Eric Vaughn totally reflects hatred about Muslims and eliminating race!!! Most of you wouldn't know Islamic laws and thus spilling out hatred. You have to judge Islam by its teaching but not the followers. Act of terrorism and honor killings are against Islamic laws too.

The guys who are cursing ALLAH and Prophet Muhammad [PBUH]... GET A LIFE. Its same as cursing Jesus [PBUH], Moses [PBUH] or any Prophet. Ever heard of Muslim cursing other GODs or Prophets? No.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

When you can't do anything just take you frustration out on a game. With all this sophisticated technologies these days you will still never be able to find Osama in real world.

He is so damn good for you people. Enjoy!

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

What happened to games being fun to play? It's a fantasy. I would like to have tried a demo on 9/11 to see what the fuss is about, but now it is censored. Shouldn't all shoot 'em up games, movies and books be banned too?

The game appears to be based on the fullfillment of Muslim doctrine and fatwahs. What is the issue with pretending to send them to pair-of-dice if it makes the player feel good? We pretend to send Nazi's to Hell in games.

If this game was about  Muslims killing Jews and Christians for fun or religious reason, there would not be the same controvercy.   

Free speech cuts both ways, so let sales decide if this is a "good" game or not.

Don't cencor the gamer's artistic rights and programming code.  Even if you think it is evil, "Trash has a Right to be Trash" in a Free World.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

DONT BAN THE GAME; BAN THE TERRORISTS!

Well my feelings were hurt on 9-11. Those freekin crybabies can piss up a rope! How many "Honor killings" of young girls will be commited today by those maniacs? Send them all back to their dessert ratholes.

REMEMBER 9-11 AND OVER 3000 INNOCENTS MURDERED

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

"When kids spend six hours a day on violent games they are more likely to go outside and commit violence."

Yeah right, and who commands the muslim children to recite the quran believing it's their duty to "KILL THE INFIDEL WHERE EVER YOU FIND THEM" ?? (among 160 other verses designed to cause them to hate non-muslims)....where do terroists come from?...they are children who were brainwashed by their muslim peers and fed on the evil ideology of islam. People in glass houses shouldn't be throwing stones.

Fuck Allah!! and kill the muzzard race! ...thats how the good fight prevails over evil ...kill them all and lets get on with living together without some evil spawn deceptively devouring all our freedoms through both passive and forced infiltration of our homelands. Islam means to have us all submit to their demands...I for one will never submit...I'd rather die taking them with me than to submit (islam) myself to their evil indoctrination and evil Allah!!

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

apparently you dont know wut a muslim is. a muslim is a person who has morals. a muslim is a clean human. a determined human. if u had half the morals i had u would shut that mouth before sumthing bad happens to you

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

Pretty good fun. Some of them are quite tricky to kill. Managed to get past Osama (who orders planes to crash on you) but then got killed by a bloke with a rocket launcher.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

Well well, the media put their finger on the pulse of post-9/11 world 7 years on and probably had kittens when they discovered this totally 'new' game that's brand new and new, although it's old news already.

I remember when Carmaggedon came out and they had to replace the people splatting red blood with zombies that splatted green goo instead. It didn't really bother me too much because I still got to run over things that looked like people (and sounded like them!) That's why I like computer games. I get to do things I don't normally do in real life.

This game isn't even realistic like COD4 and it's essentially the same two groups of people. I like the muslims I've met, but I don't know the muslims I haven't met because we've never met. They probably would be offended by this game because they are muslim, and muslim people have a strong set of beliefs.

I'm not really offended by it, because I don't have a strong set of beliefs. I'm probably desensitized because I've played hundreds of games where I kill Russians, Americans, Britons, Australians, and Pyros. However, I don't think I've played many games where I kill people who follow a particular religion - apart from Doom of course (they worship Satan in that one).

Overall, it could have been a game about killing aliens, or Jews, or 16-year-old-LAN-party-geeks, and would still be the same. The only difference is at this particular moment in the history of the world, quite a lot of people are paranoid about anyone who follows Islam because of what some muslims did to their country because of what their country did over a prolonged period to an entire region of countries where the majority of the population are muslim.

Did that make sense? Probably about as much as this debate about pixels.

When kids spend six hours a day playing video games they are more likely to stay inside and play more video games.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

uh, i studied laws of islam and those terrorists are breaking every one of them!

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

I don't really think Kotaku would have a spazz attack if someone were to make a game depicting their deaths. Maybe that's because they have enough brain cells to realize that it wouldn't inevitably lead to their demise at the hands of some "crazed gamer" (LOL). They'd probably find it more humorous than anything else.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

"When kids spend six hours a day on violent games they are more likely to go outside and commit violence."

Call me crazy but i don't think anyone will even spend six hours a lifetime on that game.  Boxhead already perfected that type of game, and boxhead is only funny in about 10 minutes before it gets old.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

Normally I'm one to defend a game that draws criticism just for it's content. SCMRPG is a game that's mediocre but it has a good message behind it and can do a lot fo good (initiating discussion, putting people into a different frame of mind about the events, ect) from what I can see of this (no I haven't played it and I hate giving judgement without doing so) there is no message, no agenda. It's just killing Muslims which frankly is stupid, irresponsible, and offensive.

Bottom line, making such a broad judgement on such a large group and then asking people to "wipe out the Muslim race with an arsenal of the world's most destructive weapons! Don't be a liberal pussy!" is extremely ignorant and just plain stupid.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

yet, they're incouraged to kill us.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

As a muslim I gotta say, it's a badly designed game. I couldn't care less about WHO's getting blown away or WHY. The game by design is stupid, so try as I might, I couldn't get OUTRAGED. All in all, we won't remember this game or it's creator in a month.

It's certainly offensive to me. For obvious reasons. Considering the amount of offensive material available all over the 'net though, it's not a big deal.

As for you Jack, have you grabbed that Wal-Mart application yet? Don't forget to be sincere when saying "Welcome to Wal-Mart!" And try not to sue. Old habits die hard y'know.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

frankly speaking as a muslim, id love to get this racist blowhard on the phone and tell him one s***load of an earfull

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

 Muslim race? i didnt know that there was race called muslims.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

RM:  American Infidels!  We have taken your great hero Sigvatr hostage, and we will-

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

it's just a game where you blow the gently caress out of arabs

I see that somebody doesn't have a forums account.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

I am astounded, as alwasys, at an instant assumption that if an action occurs in a game, the game is endorsing it.

 

 

 

Why does Law and Order special victims unit keep on endorsing rape and muder?

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

Agreed. I could make a game where all you do is kill little children, that doesn't mean I endorse it or think it's even remotely acceptable, I just think it'd be an interesting/fun game idea (which I mean, come on, some people would have fun with it, and it's nothing to get offended about).

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

This shows how sick one can be...

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

Muslim "race"?  What an idiot.

Let's see:  Some moron came out with a "Let's kill the Jews" videogame, would that send off any alarm bells?  It should.

What if somebody made a cop-killing game?  Or a prositute-killing game?  Can you imagine such a thing?

How about a Kill Posters at Kotaku and Those Who Run that site game?  Maybe then somebody in the video game biz would wake up.  Duh.

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

Duh's not a word Jackie

And how dare you compare this aberration of a game to the art of GTA? First; targeting an ethnic group IS wrong, killing corrupt leeches of the law ISN'T wrong

Second; I am quite convinced that we can all agree "Kotaku Kraze" (generic name for a Kotaku killing game) would be quite fun

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

Anyone down to make a "Disbar Jack Thompson" game?

Seriously, there are definitely some design opportunities that would be easy to pull off...

-Every time Jack tries to talk louder, slam your gavel down and yell "order in the court" (Perfect for the Wiimote)

-When Jack holds up an oversized sign that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the matter at hand, the player can either take it upon themselves to remove the sign or signal for the bailiff to tazer Mr. Thompson

-Players must recognize which incoming motions are legitimate...and which motions are from Mr. Thompson.

-The finale allows players to use simple facts and logic in order to aggravate Mr. Thompson the most. The best endings can be achieved when Jack either walks out of the courtroom before a decision is made and he is spouting conspiracy theory, or Jack announces that he be pursuing a career as... I dunno... a sign twirler.

Myself, as someone who has posted at Kotaku frequently in the past I have to say that would be an awesome idea!  So any game developers out there I give my full permission to use my likeness to commit digital homicide against.

You see Jack as I, unlike you, can seperate fantasy from reality I have no qualms about having a digital representation of myself murdered frequently an worldwide.

 

 

Re: Muslim Massacre Game Sparks Outrage

How 'bout a game where you kill the forces of Satan? Oh wait, that was Doom, and you were the only one who had an outrage.

Oh, and prostitutes are criminals, not lawful contributors of society like most police are. Yes, there are some cops who break the law, planting marijuana in order to have sex with unsuspecting women and such, and don't deserve to be protected.
