It’s been a while since some gang of whiny pussies moaned about the Nintendo Wii daring to have a bit of variety on its system with Sega’s M-rated MadWorld, but luckily The National Institute on Media and the Family is here to redress the balance and present an utterly pathetic little bitch fest about the brutal brawler.
Crying over the fact that the “once family-friendly” Wii has “opened its doors to the violent videogame genre,” Dr. David Walsh arrogantly attacks Nintendo as if it was somehow the God-given right of families to have sole playing rights on the console.
The release of MadWorld for the Wii brings violent videogames to a once family-friendly platform. In MadWorld, gamers use the Wii Remote to make the necessary physical actions to chainsaw an opponent in half, impale an enemy with a signpost or decapitate a victim with a golf club. MadWorld is another reminder that parents need to make sure they watch what their kids watch and play what their kids play.In the past, the Wii has successfully sold itself as being the gaming console for the entire family and a way to bring family-game nights back into people’s living rooms. Unfortunately, Nintendo opened its doors to the violent videogame genre. The National Institute on Media and the Family hopes that Nintendo does not lose sight of its initial audience and continues to offer quality, family-friendly games.
