Conker’s Bad Fur Day From the Viewpoint of a Seven-Year-Old

Conker’s Bad Fur Day was one of the most over the top games on the market at the point of its release and since then not many games have done much to take the extreme title away from its tainted name. This game featured one of the most controversial little squirrels out there, Conker, while he made his way on the most outlandish adventures ever before seen. Having this game be rated mature right alongside of more modern games like Halo seems to be an understatement compared to that mature rating of the past. The game was out there, it was dirty, it was violent and everyone seemed to love it… everyone, yes everyone, even from the viewpoint of a seven-year-old.

Love Conkers Bad Fur but hate how people like parents take that kind of humor and bash the hell out of it until no games that crazy come out anymore. Mature now just isnt how it used to be. Its a shame but what are we to do? :P

No way should a 7 year old play that game...

Such an unorthodox game. I played the xbox version. I never managed to finish it. Partly because I was kind of put off by the intentional incoherent plot and weird mission objectives.

Still, a cult classic type of game.

A great classic. No doubt many under the intended age played or experienced Conker in one form or another. Especially those whom saw the "before" (original kiddie) and "after" Conker (BFD). He's passable with smart kids with parental guidance, but yeah set a good example, not a cool setting (use logic).

My question is, if this article is supposed to be a seven year old's view point of the game, why is it not structured as such? In summary: "I played this game when I was seven and it was whack for its time" does not = a view point from a specific origin. Dig?

Props for sharing the experience just the same.

It's funny, b/c when you look at movie ratings, Rated R 20 years ago doesn't match a lot of the ratings today. Cool article!

I never got a chance to play Conker, mostly because I'd never heard of it before. I don't think it had anything to do with strict parenting. I played a lot of violent games as a kid, i.e. Mortal Kombat, which I wouldn't consider to be so mature nowadays. I would say that Conker is probably in line with what kids see in cartoons nowadays. Of course, back when it came out I am sure it was a big deal.
