UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

August 13, 2008 -

The Daily Mail has published news of the first - but surely not the last - mainstream attack on Sega's upcoming Madworld for the Wii:

Players in the 'hack and slash' game, which is due for a UK release in early 2009, can impale enemies on road signs, rip out hearts and execute them with weapons including chainsaws and daggers.

 

The decision to release a violent game on a console which has based its reputation on family fun has shocked anti-violence pressure groups.
 

John Beyer, head of watchdog group Mediawatch-UK, called for a ban on Madworld:

This game sounds very unsavoury. I hope the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) will view this with concern and decide it should not be granted a classification. Without that it cannot be marketed in Britain. What the rest of world does is up to them. We need to ensure that modern and civilized values take priority rather than killing and maiming people.

 

It seems a shame that the game's manufacturer have decided to exclusively release this game on the Wii. I believe it will spoil the family fun image of the Wii.

An unnamed Nintendo spokesperson told the Daily Mail:

Wii appeals to a wide range of audiences from children and teenagers to adult and senior citizens, anyone from 5 - 95, as such there is a wide range of content for all ages and tastes available. Mad World will be suitably age rated through the appropriate legal channels and thus only available to an audience above the age rating it is given. The game is not made by Nintendo but by Sega.

Finally, we can take action to sandblast any cave paintings that show violence toward the buffallo or mammoth, as these aggressive images are ruining the family friendly image of cave paintings.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

"Fortunately, there is enough information about it in the public domain to enable judgements to be formed."

Brilliant.  Without touching a controller or a console with the game running in it, and by observing only the clips on the net as well as cursory comments regarding the, granted, brutal aspects of the game he has passed judgement.  With selective editing and jumping-to-conclusions I could turn a tremendously tragic film (I would use Schindler's List, but I am afraid of invoking Godwin's Law) into a veritable cacophony of one liners and humorous juxposition.  To clarify, he has not one bloody clue what he is talking about, and flaps his arms about, screaming about the sky falling when he has seen no more than a few drops of rain.  What happened to the elected or appointed officals whom used their judiciously appointed powers to reflect the will of the masses rather than the will of a few irate constituents that are either ill informed, or considered a statistical minority?

I would, however, like to extened a question to fellow politicos in the United Kingdoms.  I have watched the legislative efforts of the two houses for some time, and the various media regulatory agencies and would like to know something of the political culture there.  We tend to play things fast and loose over here, and, to our detriment, tend to paint our views on the canvass of other people's walls.  That failing tends to overshadow any sense of understanding we might have of the culture in which we are dealing with, so, to those on the other side of the lake.  Is there a brief synopsis you could offer us as to if these actions are consistent with cultural norms or deviations from the standard?

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Nintendo is indeed selling SOME of these on the Virtual Console but not even close to all of them. While i agree in part to his piracy he was filling a market that Nintendo failed to recognize. Maybe someone doesnt want to buy a Wii. maybe they just want a console with 50 - 100 NES games on them?? maybe just maybe?

but no Nintendo wants everyone araba kiralama to buy the Wii. thats their excuse but thats not what copyright is supposed to protect. i am real sure that the makers of 10 yard fight were losing sleep because they were missing out on their $0.00025 worth because they didnt get royalties from this player. *smirk*

my question is, should Super Mario Bros. be banned from public domain forever? isnt 23 years enough time for Nintendo to have made their profits?

If you have followed the Steamboat Willie case regarding Mickey Mouse you can rest in your bed well at night knowing that the MOUSE will still be under copyright law, away from public domain after your great grandchildren are in nursing homes. That is beyond ridiculous dont you think??

Gallagher can araç kiralama say all he wants, but I strongly rent a car believe it's due to his crappy leadership and E3 being a joke. ESA's Board of Directors need to find a way to get out rent a car of this horrid contract with this Bush cronie before there's no one left on the Board.

Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing ttnet vitamin or little and need to start saving costs.

YES.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

if by "family fun" you mean that massive parlement size load of shovelwhare that has afflicted the wii then everyone would be better sevred not banning games that have undergone substatial dev time.  trying to protect the uk or any contry from violance on  a national level is the eqivlent of saying "we must build the great firewall of china to protect our youth from video games." it is that type of "the giver" style of censorship that robbes us of life and cultural exchange. this is more of an insult to nintendo whos years of strict lisensice has cost them greatly in the xbox ps2 gamecube console era never have i seen more oversteeping asociade with a govermental party trying to matian a certian brand image and if none of that phases you i say good luck you commie b********.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

lol

 

I love to laugh how many of those people don't understand that there were many mature & adult games on the Nintendo consoles from the SNES (MORTAL KOMBAT 1 2 & 3), N64 (Turok, Goldeneye007, Perfect Dark, Conkers Bad Fur Day), GameCube (Enternal Darkness, Resident Evil 0, 1, 2, 3 & 4) and the Wii had already got a few like Manhunt 2 and No More Heros.

 

So I will enjoy looking at Madworld,

 

And hope that SEGA will persure BBFC like Rockstar did when Manhunt 2 was refused classification and go directly towards apealling the case if anything like this were to happen to them.

 

Also I love what the Nintendo Spokesperson said, that Nintendo had catered games on their console for all different kinds of ages and tastes.

 

It is just as important for Nintendo to provide games on their consoles like the families of Wii Sports, to the long time Nintendo Fans with Super Smash Bros Brawl and even the mature and adult audiences that would love to play games like Madworld.

 

I have better faith in Nintendo that they will never go back to what they were in the early 90s when they were afraid of those family groups criticising them all becaiuse they have a few games that contain violence and blood.

 

 

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Nintendo being family friendly?

They obviously missed the news that Manhunt 2 & Resident Evil 4 were both released on the Wii.

 

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

"The decision to release a violent game on a console which has based its reputation on family fun has shocked anti-violence pressure groups."

Where the hell were these guys when Manhunt 2 was big news? Perhaps they're shocked all the time because they have really bad memories. "The Olympics is taking place in evil communist China? I am shocked about this recent turn of events."

Good; I hope it does. I've had it with people who look at me funny and almost tell me through their expressions that "The Wii is for kids" when I tell them that I have a Wii. I absolutely hate the little kiddie image people have for the Wii; I want it to be taken seriously.

But that's not the only reason I'm gonna get this game. I mainly want to get it because it looks amazing and will probably have better gameplay mechanics than Manhunt 2 (although I'm trying not to keep my hopes up, so as to be surprised when it rocks. ).

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

This is funny since Nintendo keeps trying to shed it's "family friendly" image.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Can't freaking wait for this game to hit the US. Sucks to live in the uk with idiots like this around I guess.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Nobody has stopped Mad World from being released in the UK, and the BBFC have given no indication that they intend to do so. All you have is a pressure group, just like the PTC, sowing FUD. So how is this any different from what you find in the US media on a weekly basis?

However, I accept that things can be pretty bad in the States what with FUD surrounding Columbine/V-Tech etc, so it's understandable that you'd want some other country to be worse off than yourselves, just to make you feel better about your own situation.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

The US had the Hot Coffee and Oblivion debacles, the UK had Manhunt 2.

Horses for courses, both as bad as each other.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Err, so far one game has been delayed.

So how are they effective?

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

"The decision to release a violent game on a console which has based its reputation on family fun has shocked anti-violence pressure groups."

Are they just completely unaware of two Resident Evil games, House of the Dead, No More Heroes, and Manhunt 2 already existing on the console? Yeah, probably.

Oh well, at least Sega is getting some attention for one of their games, ba dum pish.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

We need to ensure that modern and civilized values take priority rather than killing and maiming people.

 

Alright... I'm confused here, but from my understanding (and hours of game playing everyday) I have never killed anyone, or maimed anyone on screen. I did however see coloured pixels on my screen which I then proceeded to throw other coloured pixels at it which made those pixels turn into a gib which then counted as a frag.

Where is this killing and maiming?

 

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

It's even not so much ecouraging values of "killing and maiming" that the video games have, but rather the thrills that you get from them. There's something called suspension of disbelief. The writers of the Daily Fail should try it.

Blocking out certain parts of a culture is impossible in a non-fascist state. Who is going to enforce the ban on these things? Haven't we learned anything from the Nazis and their pro-Germanic, anti-Semetic stance?

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

The Daily Mail are sort of right to be worried about this, but not in the way that the Daily Mail thinks it should be.

Nintendo has, over the past 12 months, done wonders for the image of gaming in the mainstream. The DS is something Fern Britton isn't afraid to be seen promoting on telly. Wii Fit is invading shopping centres and encouraging people to have a go. You can easily hear people who are "not gamers" talking about games.

It's quickly becoming the case where you can see a Wii parked next to someone's TV and not instantly assume they live with a hyperactive eight-year-old. A couple of news reports about how "watchdogs are warning consumers that Nintendo, creators of the popular at-home personal trainer Wii Fit and other family-friendly titles, has a new brutally violent game on the shelves" is going to erode gaming's new-found faith in the public eye.

That is bad news for gamers worldwide, as the first step in shutting down the anti-gaming groups is to get gaming an "accepted" mainstream hobby. Basically we really want to reach the point where we feel comfortable putting "playing videogames" in the hobbies section on our CVs. The public doesn't consider the average moviegoer to be a snuff film fan, but a significant proportion considers the average gamer to be someone who gets excited over realistic decapitations.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Your argument does not actually work in real life.

This game is not made by Nintendo, so therefor, no one really associates it with the Wii. When the average person thinks of the Wii, they think Mario and such, not Mad World.

As has been posted many times, the Wii has already had its share of M rated games, yet the have not damaged the reputation of the console in the slightest. Everyone complained that Manhunt 2 was going to ruin the Wii for the common family, hasn't happened yet. It is still relatively impossible to find on on the shelves.

No one complained at all about any of the other M rated games, so there is no real problem with it.

Also, the average person is not a member of extremist organizations such as this UK group and the PTC. They recognize the fact that they will see M rated games on the console.

So why do you think that this one particular game will ruin the Wii's reputation?

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Your average member of the public doesn't know or care about developers and publishers. A game being on the Nintendo Wii means the game is from Nintendo. At no point did I say that this one particular game will ruin the Wii's rep. That's the opposite to my point, which was that in the public eye Nintendo has been making a lot of progress in bringing gaming into the mainstream, with lots of news reports and discussions talking about Wii Fit and Brain Training and so on. Every negative story about gaming (particularly on the mainstream poster child console) pushes the bar a little further back. The game itself is entirely beside the point. 99% of people who hear the story won't remember the name of it 24 hours later. It's simply a case of "good news points - bad news points = current public opinion"

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

I was not surprised when I saw this yesterday, in terms of its source. The Daily Fail helps left-wingers and right-wingers collaborating to form a UK nanny state.

I had a laugh when it called Madworld the "most violent" game. I think they're a bit jarred by the graphic novel style. It tends to make red blood stand out far more.

As far as this "Take that crap off my (game system)" that's the mentality I'd expect from rabid console fanboys, the types that don't want shooters infecting their Wii, or kiddie games coming into the PS3 (I've ran into some Sony fanboys that have no interest in LittleBigPlanet). Nintendo marketed the Wii as a family console but I get the feeling that developers and critics are piling misconceptions on top of it, creating a stereotype of sorts. It's true what they say: perception can dictate reality.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

"don't want shooters infecting their Wii" Hello, Resident Evil? Virtual Console?

Perception (mine, anyway) dictates that there are three types of games on the Wii:

1) Third-party kid-friendly party games and licensed shovelware.

2) Games made by Nintendo, usually with "Wii" in the title or continuations of existing franchises, ranging from kiddy (Mario Party) to not-so-kiddy (Twilight Princess).

3) Third-party only-for-adults blood-and-guts hack-and-slashers.

Then there are the oddball games, like sequels to RPGs I didn't play, surgeon simulators, and adventure games that only reviewers have heard of.

I am personally not interested in 1) or 3). I will not buy them, I will not play them, and I will let the market decide instead of pointlessly protesting them. Speaking of which, how many gamers still remember that Manhunt 2 existed?

Off-topic: Wasn't No More Heroes censored to have black instead of red blood?

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Off-topic response: No, there were two versions of the game: the U.S. showers-of-blood version and the international enemies-turn-to-upwards-falling-ashes, kinda-poetry-through-violence version released in Japan and the U.K.. It is disputed which one is the original, intended version: blood or ashes, but noone has confirmed which one. Still, both versions were released, and IMHO, both were absolutely amazing.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

The marketing behind the Wii - even as far as the name - is that the system is for EVERYBODY.  Everybody includes people who enjoy mature themed games.  Get it through your head watchdog groups, adults enjoy games too.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

If I become a game developer (I won't but for the example) I'll be sure to refuse to release any games to the UK, but then flood the black market with ultra violent tripe, just to fuck with the dipshits.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

So just so I'm clear...

You are going to not send out games to countries that have random groups of nut jobs that want to censor games?

Where are you going to be selling this game?

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Because of course, we all know the only time parents play Video Games is with their children. That's why, for Christmas Eve in around 1979, I was laying in bed at 1am listening to Dad playing Space Invaders on the 2600, which was supposed to be a Christmas present for us kids ;) That was 3 decades ago, and, gosh, Adults still play Video Games.

It's just like, when you send your child to bed, you don't watch Action Movies, because, even when the child isn't there, you might telepathically pass on the violence...

Oh wait, that's Bullshit, hmmm...

Probably means it will be in the Daily Mirror tomorrow then.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Players in the 'hack and slash' game, which is due for a UK release in early 2009, can impale enemies on road signs, rip out hearts and execute them with weapons including chainsaws and daggers.

Sounds like fun to me.

The decision to release a violent game on a console which has based its reputation on family fun has shocked anti-violence pressure groups.

I hate how "Family Fun" means "the kids are having an OK time, but the adults are bored to tears." Aren't parents part of the family, too? Aren't they taken into account when people talk about families? When did teenagers get kicked out of "family"? It pisses me off to no end when "family" is used in place of "stupid fucking kids." Even an alcoholic wife-beater is part of a family. Make sure he's got something to play.

The youngest person in my family is 22. Even a family trip to a strip club is "Family Fun".

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

When they say "family friendly" they mean entertainment that the whole family can enjoy together. So kids and parents can have fun at the same time.

Yes the Mom and Dad are part of the family, but  entertainment geared specifically for them will not always be family friendly, but it shouldn't have to be.

There are plenty of Family Friendly games on the Wii that no one should be worried about ruining the experience. It is also not like Nintendo is sending everyone a copy of Mad World as part of the daily updates and making the only thing that will run for a couple of days.

The game is a choice not a requirement.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Similarly the term 'all-age' annoys me which means '1-12', as if nobody was ever older than that.

If something is for children people should have the guts to say 'for children' not make up BS terms for it.

 

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

So whats the deal with the British and video games anyway?

And that airline food, whats up with that? :P

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Well, all these attempts at censorship come from having a Government which will have an internal leadership struggle, where the Politicians vote who is boss, but refuse to have a general election, where the people vote who is Boss. When you are a Government like that, controlling information is important.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

The people never vote who is boss in the UK - our system doesn't work like that.  We vote for the party in power (pedanticallly we don't even vote for the party.. vote for our local MP who is from a certain party who then sits in parliament and represents us, and the one with the most number of MPs gets in), and that gives them a mandate for a maximum of 5 years.  The prime minister is just that - just another minister who happens to be the party leader at the time (in browns case for about the next month I expect).

In turn the PM has little power beyond the title.  Unlike a president he can't propose/veto laws on his own, send the country to war, etc. - he has to go back to parliament and ask, and quite frequently (especially recently) gets told to stick it up his arse.

One leader stepping down then another taking over isn't unusual.. John Major took over from Thatcher in that manner.  What's unusual is there not being a bun fight over the next leader (which can be entertaining to watch) - we'll get that in the next month or two though.. Milliband is looking hot favourite at the moment but he won't be the only one.

 

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Actually, Major is a good example for another reason, since he ended up being kicked out by the largest majority ever when he finally did hold an election, something that looks to be repeated with the Labour Party this time round.

In a way, it's a pity, after years of Thatcher, I don't want the Conservatives in power again, but Labour may as well just hand them the keys and walk away with their recent policies. It's a pity because I like my local politician, she's good at her job, but when it's apparent that the higher echelons of the party get most of their policies from reading the Daily Mail each morning, you have to start comparing bigger pictures with smaller ones.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

LOL Daily Mail.

I wonder how much their libel insurance is after their recent payouts?

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Seconded.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

I hope this is not going to have a Manhunt 2 pulled on it. Banned in the UK and given an AO rating in America. :(

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

This is why I hate the Daily Mail. They are so bloody ignorant! America has Fox News to humiliate itself, and we have the Daily Mail...

When will they understand that there is a perfectly good rating system in place. I mean we use two!! 

Besides going into a store and buying an 18 game whilst being underage is harder than buying alcohol!

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

As much as I hate to defend the Daily Mail, this article was remarkably balanced and free from editorial bias. All they did was report the watchdogs viewpoint and then give Nintendo and Sega a voice as well without adding their own commentary.

Let us not shoot the messanger ok?

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

When the messenger is the daily mail I'd personally be handing out the bullets...

 

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

I'll take the black talon hollow points, please ...

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

If you go by that same logic, ban Pulp Fiction and Goodfellas for spoiling the family fun image of movies!

Ban Nas for spoling the family fun image of music!

Ban Secret Diary of A Call Girl for spoiling the family fun image of TV!

Shall I continue?

Video games aren't just for kids, butthole!

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

"Ban Secret Diary of A Call Girl for spoiling the family fun image of TV!"

Don't you dare...

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

I don't think the argument is about video games in general, but specifically about the Wii.

The problem is that it completely ignores the fact that Reggie Fils-Aime himself said that, yes, the Wii would have games aimed at adults such as this. Nintendo learned their lesson about this sort of thing when the otherwise completely inferior Genesis version of Mortal Kombat outsold the SNES version because the Genesis version had the blood code.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

Actually his argument has some merit although he may not have realized it. The production company that produced Pulp Fiction is owned by Disney.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

This is rediculous. Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles, Manhunt 2, Return of the House of the Dead I&II, Alone in the Dark and Mortal Kombat Armageddon are all violent games for the Wii. If Manhunt 2 was unbanned then I can't see Madworld being banned. This game is most definetally not as violent as that.

Re: UK Watchdog Group Calls for Ban on Upcoming Madworld

  Don't forget No More Heroes, where decapitating an enemy treats you to a shower of blood and money.

Andrew EisenStill a pretty cool promotion. Unfortunately for me, I'm not interested in purchasing Mario Kart 8 and I already owned or didn't want any of the free games on offer.07/31/2014 - 1:43pm
Andrew EisenInteresting that EU had 10 games to choose from while North America only had four.07/31/2014 - 1:41pm
MaskedPixelanteIt certainly worked, I probably would never have bought Mario Kart 8 if it didn't come with a free copy of Wind Waker HD.07/31/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenI imagine will see similar promotions like "Buy Mario Kart 8 get a download code for one of these specific games" but almost certainly not for all of its (however you would define) biggest releases.07/31/2014 - 11:24am
MaskedPixelanteI wonder if Nintendo is going to be doing "buy one get one free" promos for all their biggest releases going forward.07/31/2014 - 10:48am
