The always reliable Guinness Book of World's Records claims that House of the Dead: Overkill is the world's most profane game. Well, it contains the most profanity, anyway.
During three hours of relatively limited dialog, the game features 189 uses of the f-word. That's over one f-word per minute and three percent of all words spoken in the game...f*ck! The developers must be very, very proud of this F-tastic honor.
Video Games Records Manager for Guinness World Records, Gaz Deaves, said: “This record category pre-existed for movies, music and television, but House of the Dead: Overkill is the first video game to be awarded the title in the Gamer’s Edition. It’s a mark of the times.”
Overkill is a Wii game that came out a month ago, and I'm shocked that Nintendo's family friendly console, favorite system of grannies and 8-year-olds everywhere, is home to this record breakingly profane game. Shocked, I tell you!
Our own Jeffrey Kanjanapangka played this titled and while he said it was "fun," he added that the cursing is over-the-top: "There's so many f-bombs, it stopped even being funny," Kanjan said.
At least the game doesn't contain that many "R-words" or the dreaded "E-Word;" than it would be double-plus-shocking!
