Not because we know the names of the victims.

Because it recreates a real-life horror in the details. Yes, GTA is awful. However, even someone who has been pulled out of a car and beaten (or a relative of someone who has been pulled out of a car and beaten to death) can disassociate a little. Not the same street, not the same attacker, not the same weather, etc.

The survivors of Columbine and the families of the victims can't dissociate from this. Plus, it feels like someone is making money off of their specific disaster, or at least marginalizing it.
