JFK: Reloaded (Windows)
In another sick moment in video game history, JFK: Reloaded hit the scene in 2004. Released by the Scotland-based developer, Traffic Games, JFK: Reloaded puts the player in the role of Lee Harvey Oswald, who was found by five U.S. government investigations to have been Kennedy’s assassin. The player is then scored on how closely one’s version of the assassination matches the report of the Warren Commission: first shot missed, second hit JFK’s neck and third on the head. According to the company, the primary aim of the game was “to establish the most likely facts of what happened on 1963-11-22 by running the world’s first mass-participation forensic construction”, the theory being that a player could help prove that Lee Harvey Oswald had the “means and the opportunity to commit the crime”, and thus help prove the Warren Commission’s findings.
