Professional Eating Comes to Video Games

It's apparently the season for oddball game pitches. Except, this time, the game pitch has already been accepted and is in development. Publisher Mastiff recently took up the concept for a game that will be called "Major League Eating", based off of what some call America's favorite past time. The game itself sounds like something out of a 7-year old's dream. The contest of the "world's greatest gurgitory athletes" will play much like many other fighting games, such as Mortal Kombat. However, instead of using swords and fists, the aforementioned athletes will attack and defend using "burps, belches, and mustard gas", all while making sure that they get their fair share of munchies. Mastiff's announcement did not mention any timeframe for release, or finalize any platforms.Source: 1Up

Wow, people were paid to come up with this idea and put it into a game? :confused: This one has "failure" written all over it.

So... this is going to do what!??! Make the kids in america become more Obese then they are now!?!? I know of it as a sport, and I've seen tons of behind the scenes footage, but this just doesn't help people when it comes to food... We'll be seeing how this game does in the coming months... This will probably be the icing on the cake for the government to put a restriction on everything gaming..

you got me all wrong there.. I said I know of the sport and this game does nothing to help it.... I'm sorry if the last post got you thinking wrongly about how I feel... Its a sport, and I'll never think of it not.. Just that this game is WRONG FOR THE SPORT... IMO

This has to be one of the dumbest game ideas I've heard in a long time.

That being said, I'll bet this game does well. Anyone remember "Pet Rocks"?
When they first came out I though, "What kind of dumbass would pay for a rock in a box?"
They sold millions.

Do not underestimate the power of marketting and the general moronicity of the average consumer.

Please note : "Moronicity" is a new word I just invented and claim all copyright too. If you want to use I will be happy to license the use to you. Licensing cost is 1 (one) twelve pack of Guiness Stout (not draught, that stuff is lame).

I can understand trying to come up with something new but this is taking things to extremes who would buy this honestly.

How many kids watch the "burp, belch, fart" mentality of the current TV animations ?
