|I'm guessing this game is about the movie/book Bully? Where an actual real life bully was brutally murdered by his high school friends.|
No, it's not.

So I say let rockstar create a videogame with very minimal violence, with no zombies or aliens or whatever for you to kill.

If the player gets to be the bully, this could have a very short shelflife - advocating bullying in schools will NOT be tolerated.
If the player is the bullied, it could get all kinds of sympathy votes and wonderful hyperbole over the way the game "shows the suffering of our youth"
I also think this game will be shown from a distinctly British point of view (depite being made by OH! Canadians). That could really alienate some of you American gamers - I see how much hatred there is for the idea of a GASP! GTA:London update. The boarding schools of the UK have a very bad reputation for bullying and if it is portrayed from OUR point of view, it could turn out to be a very vicious and sordid little game.
I can't wait.

|I'd like to know why anyone would play it. Hasn't everyone already experienced that sort of thing after being through school, why would you want to play a video game of it? Doesn't sound like a winner to me.|
Maybe you experienced it.
Bah, it sounds like another State of Emergency. But they do have the money to explore crazy ideas, so, whatever.

Heh, columbine anyone?
Seriously though, this sounds like it might be good only for a couple laughs/hours, but maybe I'm wrong. Maybe Rockstar Games can do something besides cars and gangsters .
P.S. I live in vancouver and it rules. I shall find out what info I can.
