Quote for truth.Originally Posted by IcuicI tend to find that people always assume that brightly coloured and lacking blood automatically makes a game kiddie. And those people seem to be the ones that can't have fun in a game unless you can perform some sort of headshot or fatality move. My father happens to be one of these people and I find it to be a shame.
So far, I think the game line up for the Wii is quite 'Cute'. Not kiddie. Every game I've played can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Ok, there's not much blood in Raving Rabbids (or even Trauma Centre) and you can't headshot someone in Wii Sports but still, they're still fun even if you are over the age of 18, or below it as the case may be for some.
Soon, I have no doubt, there will be games to rival GTA and Gears of War for the gore and the much loved 'something for mothers to complain' about factor (And I can't wait for the 'GTA on the Wii taught my stupid child how to twist a knife in someones gut with it's motion sensing technology, it should be banned, banned I say'). And then all those who can only have fun by performing something that is illegal in real life on a computer game will be happy, because 90% of so called adult games are just about that.
If we're really lucky, we'll have what I personally would consider to be a true adult game sometime soon too. Something with a mature story and indepth gameplay that doesn't rely on realistic blood splatters or mammary gland physics to make it adults only. With the pointer possibilities classic point and click adventure could be easily made. Imagine it, a Monkey Island console game that isn't complete and utter rubbish. Dialogue that goes over kiddies heads, humour that borders on too dark, insult swordfighting.... the true ingredients of mature gaming.
