As The Titanic Passengers Were Drowning…

I came across this arcade game at a local sports complex.  The Titanic.  Complete with sinking ship.

As the Titanic passengers were drowning, I’m sure they were not imagining the new arcade game that could come out of the unfortunate situation.

What will be out there 100 years from now?  I can picture a few things in the middle of that game, but I am NOT going to go there.

When I saw this game I had to stop and watch.  It was kind of like a terrible accident that you can’t turn away from.

So… Titanic Arcade Game.  Sinking ship.  Is it just me?

  • Good grief. No it’s not just you.

    Have a terrific day. Leaving blog scratching head. 🙁

  • No. Not just you. Very, very insensitive!

    Oh wow.

    Kinda tacky a bit isn’t it?

    What’s next The Hiroshima video game?

    Hmm… it is a bit like a car accident isn’t it I agree, I would have had stayed to watch it finsih just out of sheer curiosity.

    • It had a voice that would speak really loudly a lot.. “iceburg ahead!” things like that. It was pretty fascinating to watch … kind of like “Wow, did he just SAY that?!”

  • That’s pretty awful!

    No, it’s not just you. It seems there is a sickness in our society for people to enjoy replaying disasters .. or maybe it’s just a coping mechanism. When life is so full of tragedies, disasters and acts of terrorism, maybe the only thing you can do is to make light of them?

    Well, it’s the only thing for some people anyway.

    • I really like your take on the titanic game… making light of things… I mean, look at the movie The Titanic… strictly for entertainment and money – yet so many people were drawn to it. (I liked it too)… interesting!

  • I bet the creators thought ‘Lets teach kids about history in a fun and interesting way. bleech!!

  • The worst thing about crap like this is it really desensitizes kids to tragedies.

    • I agree… I almost expect to see a 9-11 game one day, if there isn’t one already. 🙁

  • I guess they are running out of themes for video games? What is the point of the game. Are you supposed to sink the ship? I always kind of thought video games were supposed to be fun and happy. The Titanic doesn’t seem either.

    • I didn’t stay long enough to figure out what the game does. I think that it is a chance game. You put in money and it spins and gives you tickets for junk at the counter… I would MUCH rather play Ms. Pacman!!!
