After Kotaku released the Columbine RPG game, the last person you would think would play it has and shares his opinion of what he thought of it.
Richard Castaldo, who was last paralyzed from the chest down after being shot in the arm, chest, back and abdomen by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold during their attack on Columbine High School, emailed me recently about our post on the Super Columbine Massacre RPG.
Castaldo, who hopes to one day work in the gaming industry as a sound designer, is a regular reader of Kotaku and wanted to let me know that he had downloaded the game and played it.
He was kind enough to agree to a short Q&A about his thoughts on the game.
