Gaming Needs to be More Mature, Not More Adult

Joseph Jackmovich of gamrFeed recently skimmed through an article off CVG that Duke Nukem Forever would dance on the lines of decency, according to Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford. According to the article, a DNF trailer shown in London showed off naked breasts, strippers, swearing, and an alien being hit in the genitals.

This isn't the type of thing gaming needs to be advertising. Especially with a case before the U.S. Supreme Court dealing with violence in gaming and its accessibility to minors.

If Duke Nukem becomes the next Night Trap/Mortal Kombat, I'm gonna hate the Duke forever.

Maybe I should feel bad for liking Night Trap as a kid? That's right, the 32X CD one.

Fuck I must have been a dumb kid.

Don't worry all kids are dumb. When I was little I thought Good Burger was the greatest movie ever made. Kids don't have taste, that's why people like Justin Bieber are millionaires. I grew up in the boy band era, Backstreet Boys, Nsync, 98 Degrees, luckily that shit never took and I chose to listen to my dads Guns N Roses, Bruce Springsteen, and AC/DC casettes instead. Kept me on the straight and narrow.

The STRAIGHT and narrow.

Sure I played good games like Super Mario Bros, Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy 7, but I also played a lot of movie and tv based games, like Disney's Hercules, Small Soldiers, etc. because I recognized the characters. I was both dumb and aware at the same time.

Looking back I shiver at the thought of the crap I used to play.

Gaming is just the new racy medium. People went crazy over violence in movies and on TV, now they've acclimated to that. They did the same thing years before with comic books. We're just the new thing. Once the next thing rolls around, they'll be off gaming raciness and on to that.

Nicely written editorial.

I just want a fun game that I enjoy!

N4GAddict3289d ago

I don't like movies trying to be games, thank you very much.

@Mr Tretton

Mr Tretton3289d ago
