Talking Point: The Rules for Violence in Video Games

In this week's Nintendo Download update, Outdoors Unleashed: Africa 3D arrived in the North American eShop, an arcade shooter where the targets are assorted wildlife from the plains of the African continent.

When announced in a Nintendo Life article yesterday, this game went on to provoke an interesting debate about violence in video games, what's acceptable and what is a step too far. It's a topic where there doesn't appear to be any definitive winning argument, but rather multiple grey lines intersecting each other. Nintendo Life looks at a few examples, why some may deem the violence to be a step too far, and why others may argue that, actually, it's all a fuss about nothing. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Crazy Chicken Pirates 3D, Goldeneye 007, Industry, MadWorld, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, No More Heroes, No More Heroes 2, Outdoors Unleashed Africa 3D, Wii)
