A dark corner of the internet has brought us a first-person shooter game called "Chris Dorner's Last Stand."

4chan took it upon themselves to create a computer game for the renegade ex-LAPD cop, according to Gameranx. It's a lot like the kind of games that are de rigueur for fictional blockbuster stars.

After Dorner's manifesto detailing allegations of racism and brutal violence in the LAPD were widely circulated, he became something of an anti-hero, a kind of "perverse Robinhood." Dorner's rampage against police earned him sympathy and comparisons to Hollywood anti-heroes, like Rambo.

We didn't play the game ourselves, but there is a YouTube video that gives us a pretty good idea. Just as in real life, the game takes place in a cabin somewhere snowy and there's a shoot-out with police that ends with the cabin going up in flames. A real-life message from Charlie Sheen to Dorner plays.

There's plenty of fantasy mixed in, too. For whatever reason, the Terminator shows up at the end of the shootout. And it pains us to report that Dorner restores his health through buckets of fried chicken from KFC while a song whose title we won't repeat plays.
