I would love to play the reenactment of your families assassination, and laugh while I hit them bullet by bullet. By the comments that I read I believe more about video game corrupting people mind. It just shows violent games are not for everybody. A friend told me once beware of a person that shows no empathy for another human being. Psychopaths. How humiliating is this for the Kennedy family? It would be a nice game if it didn't involve names of actual people or actions that happened in real life and traumatized millions. There is a limit for jokes in a civilized society. Respect others.

For even more terrible laughs, there are some incredibly buggy modded versions of JFK Reloaded that turns the bolt-action rifle into something akin to an M-14.  It also adds a rather large crowd of clones that watch the motorcade go by, and let me tell you, there is nothing like seeing the bullet-riddled presidential limo drive onto the sidewalk (running over dozens in the process) in order to escape from you. XD

Releasing a game the same time as a big hit it's almost a commercial suicide.  Like EA releasing "Need for Speed World" the same Day Starcraft 2 was released.Or more recent: Sonic 4 part II the same day Diablo III hits the streets.

 

Don't understand that kind of marketing, honestly...

what happened to video games being art? killing jfk? ART.... Less sarcasm, I'll bet 90% of Americans posting on here didn't know that he truly shot the governor.

Somehow splattering JFKs head off is "in poor taste" but shooting a German in the balls is just great like they're somehow less of a human.

The dial-up tone brings back such bad memories, it's physically painful to listen to. Please pick a new sound byte! Otherwise, great show.

Oh my god that was so funny! :D

Am I a bad person if I enjoyed seeing digitized JFK getting killed in various ways? Yeah, I know it's not real but you get that horrible feeling, you know?

 

All this assissination high jinks, I know I shouldn't laugh because it's so wrong, BUT IT'S SO RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME! :D   :|    DX

 

Also, extra point to Danny for mentioning Skullgirls and The Splatters, they're one of those good games that hardly any has heard about amidst all other titles  :3

Great show Mr O'Dwyer, the recommendations and wonderful display of videogame wrongness. Refreshingly brilliant seeing these video features on GS.

great show, the jfk commentary is hilarious because it's exactly what most gamers would do. disgusting and yet you can't help experimenting different ways to make things go horrifyingly wrong for the poor digital jfk and his entourage.  watching them fly out of the car or the motorcycle cop running off were hilarious. "what a hero!".  not sure i ever really needed to see exploding nazi testicles though...who decided we needed to have that in a game?  and what happened to mt. stupid?  is that done for the season?

Like this if you HAVE heard of JFK reloaded.

The game made some news back in the day, I could never get the thing to run so I don't know how the game feels but have seen videos.

 @dannyodwyer - awesome new series Danny - very funny but the JFK game is kind of in bad taste to me but you and Johnny commenting on the game made me laugh - so does that make me weird?

The JFK game footage and commentary is actually making my laugh out loud.  I've watched it three times now.  Best part of the show for me.
