The Guy Game banned, goes straight to video
Following sales ban, hormone-heavy game ditches interactivity and skips to uncensored titillating DVD.
Last year, the appropriately named Top Heavy Studios released The Guy Game to the horror of parents and policy makers. The PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 game was a trivia-based voyeur adventure set deep in the heart of spring break in notoriously wild South Padre Island, Texas. By correctly predicting the answers of boozed-up coeds, gamers could eventually see Girls Gone Wild-like footage of females "letting their guard down."
It didn't take long for one of the females in the game to come forward and sue the Bermuda shorts off of Top Heavy, Microsoft, and Sony, for using her visage (and more) without consent. Or legal consent, rather. The student was, in fact, 17 years old at the time, making her a minor and legally incapable of giving consent on such a matter.
Now, it appears as though the temporary holding order on the sale of the game has become quite permanent. On The Guy Game Web site, Top Heavy states, "The rumors are true! The most controversial video game ever created - The Guy Game - is no longer available!"
Maybe. But what to do with all that footage of the game starlets in action? Answer: Pack it all into a DVD, name it The Guy Game: Game Over!, and sell it for $19.99. In a Too Hot for TV move, Top Heavy is including new video footage and new girls not included in the game on the DVD, thus making the most interactive part of the DVD pressing the "play" button. The real bargain shopper will go for the special offer package, which includes the DVD and a hat and T-shirt emblazoned with The Guy Game logo, for $39.99.
