EA made to sit on naughty step by nannies over baby killing

Last week, Dante’s Inferno producer Jonathan Knight revealed that there would be a Trophy in the game called ‘Bad Nanny’ awarded to the player for killing a set number of unbaptised babies. Not regular, defenceless babies, you understand. Demonic, upright-walking, giant babies with huge knives instead of arms. Anyway, this week the International Nanny Association hit back,

“It is our opinion that this type of play may promote violence towards children. The name of the Trophy or achievement, ‘Bad Nanny,’ is offensive to our association.”

The INA has called for the ESRB (US equivalent of PEGI) to take action over ‘Bad Nanny’, but the ESRB has politely pointed out that it’s a ratings board and not a censor. Sounds a bit like hand-washing/buck passing to us.

We know nothing about babies or children, so we asked a parent what he thought might promote violence towards children. His answer, surprisingly, was Lego Batman. His children are now banned from playing it after one kicked the other in the head, apparently expecting a shower of Lego bricks to pop out. We’re not sure if that’s a relevant or useful insight, but we thought it was pretty funny anyway.

    i’m sure it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that was going to happen. histroy tells us that everyone is watching the games industry and anyone will take shots like these, whether or not it gets the highest rating.

    the lego thing was a bit unexpected, i went to check the rating of lego batman and found three different ratings!!!
