If it makes you feel better to believe Nintendo is the leader in adult games then feel free to believe what you want.Â I'll be too busy playing Grand Theft Auto 4, Resident Evil 5, and dozens of adult games on the 360 to really worry about it myself.Â You can feel free to play Brain Age and some puzzle games and believe it as well.
The only ones that will suffer are the kids that won't be allowed to play Grand Theft Auto 4, Resident Evil 5, Brain Age,Â and those puzzle games because their parents don't feel they're old enough yet to play adult games.
How are any of those games "adult"? Neither game features anything even verging on a "complex" storyline, nor do they deal with themes which are too much for most kids to handle. Blood, violence and gore are nothing new to many, many kids.
MGS4 is going to be heavily laden with stories of war and strife, the kinds of things which would go over kids' heads. THAT is an adult game (which will probably go to the 360 as well).
However, on the same subject, don't hold your breath for RE5. It's been 1 year and 8 months since we saw the prerender trailer two E3s ago and Capcom's recent game day had NOTHING on RE5, not even a single new screenshot.
Capcom is playing the waiting game to see who the next console war winner will be and I frankly don't blame them.
But on the subject, it's foolish to care whether or not Nintendo has the adult market. Markets aren't divided when it comes to pure console sales. The most wins, period.
"I mean, c'mon, Viva Pinata, a game with massive marketing, didn't sell worth a damn to the "sophisticated" 360 audience, despite near-universal praise--is that a sign that 360 owners are a bunch of casual ignoramuses that can't get their heads around a 'gardening' sim? Of course not. So let's please stop trying to micro-analyze one game out of hundreds and using it as the poster child for why good, non-1st party, games can't sell on Wii. (Everyone frequenting this site knows this is nonsense, and yet some of you just can't let it go because it's the only scab you have left to pick at after all your other "Wii will phail1!!1" straw men arguments have been put to the torch.)" - exindguy on Boom Blocks
