As we all know, GS likes to keep politics out of gaming. And with Tomodachi Life, they decided to keep it that way.

But not really.

Final Score: 7

The good:

  • Wonderfully weird
  • Charming character animations and visuals
  • As much fun to mess with your Miis as it is to care for them
  • Some truly laugh-out-loud moments

The bad:

  • ...but the novelty soon wears off
  • Weak character development
  • Prohibits the gay community from fitting in

There we go. That's what we were waiting for.

Yup. Who knew that GS would jump on this controversial matter. As you might imagine, the comment section is already lighting up.

Thoughts on this? Interested in the game?

This game sounds profoundly misogynistic.

The idea is just amazing. Somebody should steal it and make an online version where you can type whatever you want and the game reads it in a robot voice to other players.

TSHBO.

And yeah, GS likes to jump on these things for some reason. I do agree that it was dumb by Nintendo to not even allow a patch to change the current predicament, but it shouldn't really influence the critical score AS A GAME.

are you sure it's not TGHBO?

I think TC wants to see how many people reply without reading the actual review.

I am just sickened by this. I may have to go beat a homeless person down to relieve my frustration.

Who actually cares. From everything I've seen the game looks like garbage anyway, 7 is much higher than I'd have expected it to score.

That's not actually part of the review. Or if it was, it was (wisely) edited out.

It's not like that criticism is false or imaginary? But sure like the GTA 5 review, there is a sever lack of sincerity to some of these criticisms.

Well played, good sir. Still, it's a sad testament to GS considering how many people immediately bought into it without a moment's hesitation.

Or, to the media. Because they pull off crap like this every once in a while. And I don't want to click it to verify because they would get money out of it.

I was gonna get the game since I have enough Eshop credit, but I thought better of it. I probably wouldn't play it much and I have other games more deserving of my attention right now. Kirby Triple Deluxe is quite an awesome game.

How would something in a game prohibit any kind of community from fitting in... this reminds me of the bus seen in Forrest Gump... "can't sit here"... "seats taken".... lol

:S I don't get it, it says nothing about the last negative, you've added it on, it got a 7/10 it's a good game, what's the problem :S

The reason people fell for this one is because it has become very realistic. Such idiotic social justice warrior sentiments have been creeping in to the site for some time by the morons who don't realise this isn't their irrelevant tumblr whine site. It's for video games.
