RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)

RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

The Newest Game That Hurts Your Kids

Drugs in Fallout 3? Violence in GTA? Sex scenes in Mass Effect? Gay marriage in Fable II? Nope, according to Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View, the problem is Wii Fit calling your kids fat. You know... because they're fat.

I have unfortunately been made aware of this show where old ladies sit around yammering. I'm not sure where or when it intruded into my consciousness, but at least I still had to look up the names of everyone who is not Whoopie Goldberg.

Hey dimwit, don't you think the health perils of obesity might just outweigh any self-esteem issues arising from a video game pointing out that they're fat? Because Wii Fit is, well, a scale. Actually it's four scales. It weighs things, that's all it does, and if it says the kid is fat, the adults in his life should help him lose some weight.

You know, by something like... playing Wii Fit, and letting it honestly track his weight loss progress. Sheesh.

Joy Behar, the only sensible one at the table, at least points this out, bat gains little traction. Easier to blame the game.
