Don't Be Stupid, Be A Smarty

There's a story in this week's Entertainment Weekly about "Scarface," and how it's more popular than ever, and in the story we learn that a "Scarface" video game will soon be released (along with the new DVD, which will purchased by lots of people who already own the other five versions.)

Anyway, we discover from the piece that the "Scarface" game was created by David McKenna, a Hollywood screenwriter best known for writing "American History X." So I got to thinking- why not an "American History X" video game? Where you play a skinhead, and you get points for kicking people in the head against the curb, as well as avoiding prison rape. Come on, is that idea really that much worse than one where you play a Miami drug dealer?
