Gloom
Gloom

To be fair, the point of Gloom is to kill EVERYBODY off, not just the kids. …But I bet that’s still satisfying to someone who has been trapped in a room with thirty five-year olds all week!

    Is Gloom still available? If so, it’d be great for de-stressing. My brother works for a security company at a Juvenile Detention Center. I work the Snack Bar at a bowling alley. We could use something like Gloom to really unwind from dealing with stupidity.

    My two cents as a parent: I would never think that it’s funny or cathartic to pretend to harm children no matter how burnt out I am from chasing their mischievous butts. This strikes me as either unrealistic or featuring parents that I could never relate to.

    It’s also good for dealing with stupid people in general. Like when you’re reminded that FOX cancelled Futurama, Firefly, and Dollhouse, screws with the writing of pretty much every show on their network, and are just general jerks.

    I’m also a parent, and can absolutely relate. Just because you want to indulge in a game does not mean you would ever hurt a child in life. But I have three kids. Young children and toddlers are very hard work, leaving little time for other aspects of the self. Recognizing and having outlets for your darker feelings and feeling support from your friends while you do, is priceless. No matter how much a parent loves their children, it is natural to, at times, resent the challenges that all parents experience while raising them.
