Top 13 Failures of this Generation

A host of ridiculously overprotective features intended to prevent child predators still couldn't keep Nintendo out of the headlines It still showed up in the news relatively frequently as its web browser function was portrayed by mindless talking heads in the sensationalist mainstream media as an inevitable black hole that would suck your children into a life spent primarily looking at donkey porn. The Wii’s ridiculously over the top safety features (friend codes, etc) may have prevented a few kids from being verbally fondled over the internet, but it has prevented millions of gamers from getting any enjoyment whatsoever out of the anemic online options available.

It could have been better if: We could go back in time and kidnap the person who invented friend codes and have them invent something less annoying instead… like Ke$ha.
