Comparing violent video games to violent movies, books, music, tv shows is dangerous as it is tantamount to saying that as a species we are incapable of enjoying evocative media for fear of imitation. Time and time again the argument is menial in scope, unambitiously striving for an answer that barely warrants searching for wasting time, energy and money. Not to mention trivialising the deaths of innocent people and demoralising a creative industry. We have to ask the bigger questions!
Nintendo need to realise they have too distinct hardcore bases.
Kids who love Mario etc and people who used to love Mario etc but would like something a bit different.
It cant always be a rehashing of the same characters, I say nuke them all.
All Im asking for really is a new Eternal Darkness and a controller to play it with. Dont give me a fucking interactive chopping board to use. Another useless peripheral which detracts from what I thought Nintendo were all about, the gameplay?
