Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes is the Worst...
...game for children in 2000, according to a recent report on video game violence. The National Institute on Media & the Family released a video and computer game report card today. The group credited our industry for adopting some of their recommendations, but still criticized stores for selling violent games to children. In their report card, they rate a pile of games against several categories, such as fear, language, nudity, illegal & harmful activities, etc. Anyway, of all the games they list on this page (and there are a lot), only one got their worst rating in every category, and that was "Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes".
In their report on Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes, this is said about the game: Due to extreme violence and its portrayal, frightening situations, illegal/harmful behavior, offensive language, nudity and sexual content this game is not recommended for children or teenagers.
That's right, Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes is the #1 worst game for children in 2000! Of course, we at 3D Realms feel that decision should be up to the parents, and with that in mind, we want to let all the parents out there know that the game is still available for sale. If you have a Sony Playstation (either 1 or 2), make sure to head over to our online store and buy it!
If you want to read more about this, there's a story over on CNN today that talks about how the video game industry has gotten better grades (according to some US Senators, anyway). You can also read more about the game at our Land of the Babes page, or at n-Space, the creators of the game.
