Wii Fit Causing Eating Disorders

Yes, finally found time to write!

Well, Nintendo went without a flaw with their ever popular “Wii: Fit”. There were no injuries, no one sued the company because they slipped and fell off the board, and the game was highly rated by magazines, popular gaming sites, and overall the community that used it rated it fairly high, until now. There is no defect with the game..besides the fact that it called a 10 year old girl “Fat”.

Something so miniscule, and the whole thing might go to pot over it. The 10 year old girl was playing on the Wii:Fit when it announced and said that she was fat. The mother is outraged and has spoken about it ” We have all laughed and joked about being told that we’re fat and need to lose weight but I was gobsmacked when it [Wii Fit] told her that she is overweight. She is a healthy 10 year old girl with an active lifestyle, she swims and dances every week. She is 92lbs and 4ft9″ tall and there is not an inch of fat on her. She is solidly built but not fat. She was devasted to be called fat and we had to work hard to convince her that she isn’t. I know it is just a game but seriously we already have to worry about young girls starving themselves to look like the magazine models and now we have a game that tells them their fat. This to me is very worrying and I hope that is doesn’t cause emotional problems for any youngsters out there”.

This is where I throw my 2 cents in. Yes, there is a plague of obesity in America, and a counter-effort of bulemia, anorexia, and other diseases as such. Now, young girls are always going to want to look like their idols, a lot of people look up to their idols and want to be just like them, but is it the media causing these disorders? Or is it the parenting? If your child is showing signs that she’s making herself throw-up, or starve herself because a VIDEO GAME called her fat, when does it get turned around and the parents start taking responsibiltiy?

I guess the game is going to have to rated M for Mature if this is what society has come down to. So those who are reading this, make sure you warn your child about the harsh words that a video game can produce because she might be the next Olsen twin.

    Wow this whole thing seems like a family that is craving for attention, so they blame a game for calling her fat. I dont see why she would get upset about it, I would just try again to get a better score lol. These kind of things are why game makers have such a hard time with them, they have the whole “ratings” for the games these days and im guessing wii fit is rated everybody, the point is this girl will never make it in life if she gets like this over a game.
