It's the parents job to control the content their kids are watching/playing/reading...The rating system on products are there for a reason...

The rating system just isn't respected by parents at all. Every time I go to a midnight launch there are parents buying M rated games for small children. Makes no sense.

i saw a father buying GoW3 for his 10 yr son when the game released. i turned to my friend and said i cant believe he's actually buying one of the most violent games on the market for an under aged kid.

shocked the sh*t out of me.

... adult gamers all over the Internet comparing more sales figures of Mario Bros & Pokemon to that of God of War III... and super elated & proud of it.

This is the most insane behavior of gamers I have witnessed in on the Internet.

You can't get more shell shocked than that!

you are 200% correct in your statement this generation has been by far the worst gaming gen ever. grown a$$ people arguing over plastic boxes with wires, plastic discs sales, and being proud of it like their getting any of the profits is beyond retarded.

i owned all 3. consoles this generation but traded in 2 because they did fill my needs in the games i liked and wanted. there was nothing fanboyish in my decision to do that just disappointment that the 2 i traded in didn't give me a reason to keep them.

Just last week, Miyamoto said that he was interested in making a FPS!

IMO Miyamoto's point was that parents and developers just need to be more responsible/cautious.

Miyamoto would really like to renovate the genre and make it more Nintendo!

But I can't imagine we'll be seeing a Zelda FPS some time soon!

kevnb2130d ago

whatever, there are people shooting each other everywhere. its in school books, movies, and unfortunately for many real life.

I think he means the fight against a popular market that he knows Nintendo does not have a leg to stand on in. "Here, you need play more Mario!"
