Melbourne, Mar 18 (ANI): A computer game called House of the Dead: Overkill has made a Guinness World Record for being the most profane in the history of video games.

Designed for the family-friendly Ninetndo Wii console, the game features 189 uses of the F-word.

Guinness, the worldwide authority for record breaking, has recognised it in its gamer edition.

The F-word accounts for three per cent of all words spoken, and equates to just over one per minute in the game.

House of the Dead: Overkill is a violent shooter game rated MA15+, in which players have to hunt down a crime lord in a small town over-run by mutants.

PR manager Vispi Bhopti from Sega Australia, which released the game in the country, has said that the game reflects the older audience that is now playing computer games.

“For a long time we have known that gaming is no longer enjoyed exclusively by younger audience and we are proud to offer entertaining content for all ages,”” the Daily Telegraph quoted him as saying.

He added: “Much like any other style of entertainment, not all content is suitable or relevant to everyone.”” (ANI)
