The Best Amendment

thebestamendment.png1

The Best Amendment is a computer game that plays out the consequences of Wayne LaPierre’s infamous statement (above).

The first level is straightforward. You’re a little white cone-shaped fella, and you need to go get the star before the timer runs out. With each successive level, a new black-colored cone guy is added, and you have to shoot them to get more stars. Sometimes they shoot back at you, or even at each other.

The catch: Their behavior is totally determined by your actions in previous levels. If you hang out near a wall and spray a machine gun wildly, on the next level there will be a new bad guy who does the exact same thing, and you’ll have to shoot him with a bazooka or shotgun or whatever the game has armed you with.

The result is an exponential increase in violence from level to level. The game has no set limit on the number of levels, and eventually you’ll be overwhelmed and destroyed by the perpetually repeating actions of one of your past selves.

  1. but in real life if a good guy shoots a bad guy the bad guy usually dies and does not multiply himself. violence does beget violence but if there were not defensive violence only the bad guys would be left, or at least they would be left in charge. as it is it’s a mix for sure but I certainly prefer having the option of protecting myself and those I love from said bad guys.
