House of the Dead: Overkill named most profane game ever

Sega title House of the Dead: Overkill, has been named the most profane video game of all time by the Guinness Book of Records.

As one of the most risque titles in the line-up for Nintendo's Wii console, the game manages to squeeze the f-word into its dialogue a whopping 189 times. And just so you know, that's roughly once every minute of gameplay.

While this category already existed for movies, music and television, this is the first time a video game has been bestowed the title, and it now appears in the Gamer's Edition of the well-known records book.

Writer of The House of the Dead: Overkill, Jonathan Burroughs, said: "It is a dubious honour to receive such an accolade working in an industry where so often the fruits of your labours are derided and dismissed for being puerile or irresponsible, but in the case of The House of the Dead: Overkill a little puerility was the order of business".

"Parodying the profane excess of grindhouse cinema was Headstrong Games' objective and I am flattered that this record acknowledges that we not only rose to that challenge, but entirely exceeded it".

Probably best to keep this one away from the kids, then.
