I was trying to look up some recipes….. ;>_>
Fall year 2 and I’m still playing this game! Probably one of the best Harvest Moons I’ve played.
But there is something that really bothers me about this game…
Sometimes the characters talk about weight gain.
Tina and Toni have this whole scene where Tina worries she’s gaining weight and Toni, being a child and having no tact, agrees that she has gained weight and continues to upset her.
Michelle also has this strange dialogue when she’s eating lunch or dinner and she says something to the likes of, “Wouldn’t it be horrible if I got chubby?”.
Finally, Niko, an overweight child, states that he doesn’t feel very cold in the winter probably because he has a lot of fat.
What is up with this kind of crap in video games? I’ve played games since 1990 and I’ve never seen such insulting dialogue in an E rated game before. If I was a kid and I played this game, it would probably make me question if my weight was acceptable or not, which would lead to have insecurities about my physical appearance. Not that I didn’t get that kind of bullshit from other kids my age already. It’s just bizarre that Nintendo would be okay with this…
