Nintendo Killed My Son
from the our-litigious-society. dept
Rule number one if something bad happens to you: figure out how to blame a big company with lots of money and sue them. A woman is now suing Nintendo after her 30-year-old son (who has a history of seizures) had one during a marathon Nintendo playing session, banged his head on a table, and died. While it’s certainly unfortunate that someone died, it seems like a bit of a stretch to then go and sue Nintendo. Apparently all Nintendo games carry a huge warning for anyone who has had seizures that they shouldn’t play. The article also points out that it’s a bit silly to sue for his lost future wages, since this was a 30 year old guy who lived at home and played Nintendo 48 hours a week.

Why is it now that in (it seems to me) EVERY SINGLE tragedy that happens the very FIRST sound you hear is “CHACHING” ????
I have to wonder sometimes if these people are feeling any grief or remorse….or if it is totally overwhelmed by greed.
Sorry Ma’am, Nintendo doesn’t sell tables.
Where was the table? And if he’s prone to seizures, why’s he playing videogames?
The fact that every game carries one is part of the problem because most games don’t and won’t cause seizures. Yet game manufacturers slap that label on them all, rendering the seizure warning completely useless
