The Nintendo Wii is going to get in trouble for promoting itself as a family friendly system, then releasing an M-Rated game?  And the game is released by once competitors Sega?  Where have I heard that before?  Hmmm….

So, our favorite gestapo, the National Institute on Media and the Family, is firing back on Nintendo for releasing the Sega-distributed Mad World, an ultra-violent Sin City looking game set in the future.  According to them, “The release of MadWorld for the Wii brings violent video games to a once family-friendly platform. MadWorld is another reminder that parents need to make sure they watch what their kids watch and play what their kids play.”

You think?  Parents should be careful of what games they purchase their kids?  Shocker!

Let’s not forget, the Wii has seen multiple M-Rated games, including Resident Evil 4 and Manhunt 2.  Still, apparently being a system with family friendly games means that you must only release family friendly games.  Check out the full article on Yahoo, and watch the trailer for Mad World below.  NSFW if your boss has something against cartoon violence.

  1. I hope when Indy: Staff of Kings comes out, its safe from this watchdog group. I mean, teaching a kid how to throw left and right hooks at Germans has to be worse than the cartoon violence of Mad World…

  2. Look – someone has to make these decisions about what we can and can’t play. I have trouble deciding which network to watch – I certainly can’t make those difficult decisions… such as what kind of content belongs in my house! I need to be able to just walk in and pull something off the shelf knowing that someone else has safety packed the content so that I’m not exposed to violence. Especially violence. The government has done a great job keeping gratuitous violence out of my home. Fortunately, I can turn on any channel at any time and I’ll never see anything that involves graphic depictions of domestic violence, brutal portrayals of murder or people setting other people on fire. I never see any of this! Thank you, US gov’ment!
