Oh... I think that discussion was already done some 
25 years ago...

I think it isn't all that bad. I always enjoyed 
killing cops & pedestrians in 'Grand Theft Auto' 
with a car and yet never felt my driving attitude 
change in real life :-)

On the VCS it should automatically be abstract enough.

Peoples opinions might differ here.

As an example: You recently released the
source for 'River Raid'.

Actually River Raid is still (in 2001!) on the 
banned list for children under 18 in Germany...

I think there's some lines one shouldn't cross,
for example it was clear from the beginning
that I wouldn't include indians to shoot at in
Gunfight and I think that this 'Custers...'
game is one of the sickest software ever written,
but yet I can think of the idea of Death Race
as 'Being Fun'.

One probably could have lawnmovers chasing worms
or something like that, but it wouldn't be 
Death Race then...
