Nintendogs laps up awards

AwwwNo human being can resist the obscenely cute charms of Nintendogs, undoubtedly the game most worthy of the "DS killer app" label. This fact can easily be proven by simply taking your DS for a walk down the street and showing the game to any random person you might encounter. The universal reaction?

"Awww! Puppies are the bestest!"

A word of warning: Should you encounter a person that does not react in the abovementioned way (perhaps they shrug or stare at you blankly), know that you are dealing with either a homicidal maniac bent on seperating you from your vital organs or a robot that, due to a freak time-travel accident, is wandering your neighborhood in search of its toaster father. Running would be a very good option at this point, as would reiterating that the New York Times, USA Today, Parade and Time Magazine (of particular interest to the robot) have all heaped praise on Nintendogs and its lifelike puppies. Other notable appearances in the media include:

  • PC World: 2006 Innovation Award
  • Associated Press: Best Game of 2005
  • BusinessWeek: featured on Best Products
  • Entertainment Weekly: featured on The Must List
  • Chicago Sun Times: featured on the Game Of The Year list
  • FamilyFun.com: #1 on the Annual Video Game Toy Test
That's a lot of awards to list off...which is probably why you'd be better off with running.

1. Please note that not only robots and serial killers react with disinterest when presented with puppies (both of real live flesh and blood and those of which are on display on a Nintendo DS). The list should also include:

1)Clowns - They are so sad on the inside. Misery loves company.

2)Toll Booth Operators - Their years of soul-crushing presence amongst the highway travelers of the world have turned them so utterly evil they'd just as soon spit on your DS than allow you to pass without the requisite change of 45 cents (per axle).

3)IGN Employees - They'd try to eat the puppy, but upon realizing it is only a digital incarnation of be thrown into a berserker rage, killing all in their path with their souless laser-eyes and fire breath (standard issue for those in Satan's Army).



P.S. Wonder should be 'wander' ;)
