Bill Amend's popular Foxtrot cartoon is almost 20 years old and generally runs in mainstream papers. It's safe, amusing, and generally indicative of popular thought on a variety of minor household issues. It's not deep or provocative, but it does condense the zeitgeist of the moment into just a few panels sparsely populated with text and simplistic graphics.
In his latest panel (click the "read" link below for the rest of it), Amend touches on the runaway success of Nintendo's DS title Nintendogs. Remember Nintendo President Satoru Iwata's GDC Keynote address in which he said: "At Nintendo, we believe it is our responsibility to make games for all skill levels. And that includes people who are not playing our games now"?
Moms everywhere are on Iwata's list, and Foxtrot suggests that Nintendo might have finally figured out how to reach them.
