Wii Zapper: Ages 18 and Up Only

wii-zapper.jpg

Apparently, little plastic vaguely gun-shaped thingies are more dangerous than we thought. Over in the the U.K. the Wii Zapper has already received a PEGI-18 rating for when it is released next month. That seems kind of strange to do for a peripheral; even stranger when you consider that it comes bundled with Link’s Crossbow Training, which is mostly derived from a game that received a “T for Teen” rating in the U.S. I suppose most of the games that use the zapper might be rated “M” or “18+,” but I’d bet there’ll also be a few titles that have you shooting water balloons or somesuch. This is probably just an attempt to dissolve some youth gun culture. Me, I’ve still got a cap gun from when I was a kid that looks like a real revolver. I used to point it at cops and go, “Bang bang!” I got shot a lot growing up, but the lawsuits paid off well.

Holy crap (I usually steer clear from saying that)… I’m not sure which side is right, but still, you can take a kid to a shooting range, buy him a water-gun, take him to laser tag, et cetera, all of which would train him better to kill than a stupid plastic contraction with an analog stick in the back!
