Well, the backlash we all knew was coming over Ubisoft's totally mega-sexy We Dare trailer
came from the place we all knew it was going to come from. Yes, The Daily Mail (via CVG
) recently published some concerns from parents like Laura Pearson, who said "I have a 13-year-old daughter and if I knew she was playing such a highly charged sexual game with boys, I would be appalled." There's also George Hardy, who said, "No wonder we have problems in society with unsafe sex and under-age sex when kids can get hold of games like this."
Leicaster East MP (and frequent video game detractor
) Keith Vaz also chimed in, telling the Daily, "The new 'We Dare' game has clearly been wrongly marked as a 12 plus. As a family friendly console, Wii must ensure that there are proper checks and a full consultation before games are graded for use by children. This game should not be released until these checks are made." Based solely on the quality of the game presented in the trailer, we're going to say that last sentence was about five words too long.
