The Second Side

I could put something really witty here if I wanted.

They don't have The Suffering on there? Wow. That game is so whacked I'm surprised it's not number one. It is the only video game to ever be so creepy I couldn't play it alone at night.

Interesting. I'd like to have a creepy, whacked, brain-splattering game. These are all good suggestions.

Do parents really need an outside agency to tell them what games are appropriate for their children? It's not like the games hide the violence or blood - it's how they sell the product.

Any parent who bothers to actually read the box of the video game they are buying should be intelligent enough to figure out the one with the drawing of a man holding an assault rifle and a human head probably isn't the best gift for little Johnny. In fact, that ought to be a prerequisite to even having children.

That's a good point, Chris. These video game marketers make no bones (sorry) about their content. All a parent would have to do is pay attention . . . even a little bit.

Tree, you'll have to tell me more about The Suffering. I've been interested in finding the sickest, most disturbing game out there, ha.

I wish I had the type of vision that caused me to awake in the middle of the night and say "Lets make a video game based on a twenty-five year old 'B' movie! It'll make us a fortune!". Well, and have it actually make the fortune.
