Wii a family console? Sega doesn't think so

Looks like Sega's latest game, House of the Dead: OVERKILL, has set a new Guiness World Record!

Released on Febuary 10 2009, the Grindhouse styled shooter has been awarded the "Most Profane Video Game in History." The game drops the 'f-bomb' a total of 189 times. This mean the word is used about once every minute, and is three percent of the total dialog spoken in the game.

Gaz Deaves, the Video Games Record Manager for Guiness said "This record category pre-existed for movies, music and television, but The House of the Dead: OVERKILL is the first video game to be awarded the title in the Gamer's Edition. It's a mark of the times." And I agree, why shouldn't video games be in the same category as the other popular mediums of entertainment?

Oh, come on... There was more swearing in 50 Cent: Bulletproof and 187: Ride or Die than there ever could be in HotD.

Sega publishes games. Nintendo makes a game console. Sega publishes some games on Nintendo's console.
House of the Dead is a light-gun game. Nintendo makes the only console with light-gun controllers included by default.

I think I'd be more upset the game was only 3 hours long.

MADWORLD tops most everything out there on the Wii with the announcer commentary. It's not only profane but also perverted and of course the screen is, all-the-while, filled with unspeakable brutality all wrapped-up in a pretty stylized package.
