Do Wiis breed murderers? That’s what critics are saying, specifically in regard to Rock Star Games’ controversial-for-its-violence game Manhunt II:
You can use a saw blade and cut upward into a foe’s groin and buttocks, motioning forward and backward with the Wii remote as you go.
That statement is, in fact, hypothetical, since Manhunt II will not released for Wii with its current rating of “Adults Only,” but the story does raise an interesting question: Does sawing off someone’s butt cheek with a realistic back-and-forth motion make a child more likely to be violent than sawing off a buttcheek with a traditional game controller? We may never know. (Thanks to Bennett for the tip!)
