It's good to encourage obsessive-compulsions in your children. That seems to be the message of the Parent's Choice Foundation. The good-parenting group gave its annual videogame of the year award to Microsoft's kid friendly Viva Pinata.
It's a fun game and all, and the eco-system aspects of it are pretty interesting, but it's a little too addictive if you ask us, plus we're currently working on cross-pollinating and genetically engeneering Pinatas that will destroy all other and steal the candy. I doubt it's possible in the game, but we're trying.
