10 most violent games in Nintendo's history

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is just the latest game that shatters Nintendo's family-friendly image. (3DS, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

Shatters? Nintendo's products are still predominantly viewed as a family friendly, no matter how many violent games might make its way to the system. That is the continuous message of their advertising, and when people think of Nintendo they conjure up images of lovable Nintendo characters from Nintendo games, not 3rd party gorefests like Ninja Gaiden or Killer 7 which the casual crowd, moms and dads hardly are even aware of.

That's only half true, sure the casuals and kids today are gonna jump straight to thinking Mario, Wii sports and Animal Crossing.

But for most of us who know better, Nintendo's 3rd party support over the years (though recently lacking I give you that) has seen some quilitty violent games.

Just look at such 3rd party titles as Turok, Killer instinct, Resident evil 0, 4 and the awesome RE 1 remake.

Nintendo marketing themselves as prodominently kid friendly and casual over recent years hasnt earned them much points with the "Hard Core" demographic, but they still have some pretty great 3rd party titles even on the Wii and hopfully the Wii U will gain more 3rd party support leading to an even better variety and quility of their games library games.

Not to forget "Eternal Darkness"' developement was overseen by Nintendo.

Nintendo has also encouraged and aided Suda 51 projects, many times in the past.

And the Monolith Soft's "Fatal Frame" games were 2nd Party.

and "Mad World" was plenty bloody.

But you are right people don't remember things like this. They say Nintendo (still) censores but don't know that Nintendo allowed BMXX and helped create the 1st Conker Quest w/ Rare.

They haven't censored anything since the late 80's or early 90's. The 3rd Parties just Jedi mindtrick themselves into thinking they have to be exactly like Nintendo to sell on a Nintendo system.

Nintendo hasn't actively censored anything since Wolfenstein 3D and Mortal Kombat. And that was the 16-bit era.

Advertising... Home... Family... Hmm... Gamers shouldn't buy games just based on a few advertisements on tv.

Manhunt 2 worked pretty well with the Wiimote/nunchuk controls.
