I usually love me some FPS games but there’s something off putting about fake shooting up the real world in Google Maps Street View with an assault rifle. Try it out yourself, put a location Pool Worldwide and start shooting fake real people and things in Google Maps. Is it weird for you?
Why is it so disturbing? Is it the fact that these people exist in real life? Is it maybe hitting too close to home? Or am I just a little weirded out because there’s no blood spewing or structures being destroyed or awesome physics engine rendering realism or a punk arse 13-year-old kid screaming in my ear? Ah, yeah. That’s probably it. [Pool Worldwide via Kottke]
