It’s not the kind of award. This is a “TOADY” which means it’s the worst toy of the year.
Lego Batman nominated for award for toys inappropriate for children
Personally, I like this game. I think that it’s a pretty cool game. But I like all the Lego games because I liked Lego when I was a kid. I would play for hours building stuff then taking them apart and starting over again making something else.
The claim is that it promotes violence and sexuality to children. LMAO are you kidding me? WHAT THE F? Uh, ok, what about World of Warcraft? EverQuest? You have got to be kidding me. There is no sexuality in Lego Batman. You can’t play a video game without violence. Even Pac-Man ate the ghosts and the ghosts would kill him. Are you going to tell me that Pac-Man promotes violence towards ghosts?
I have the Lego Star Wars, Lego Indiana Jones and Lego Batman games and they are all good games and I would personally let my children play with them. This is absolutely ridiculous that they are doing this.
One of the claims is that when this game was being advertised, McDonald’s was selling Happy Meals with a lego batman character as the toy. So freakin what! They are saying that this is promoting violence, sexuality and bad health. Excuse me? You don’t have to get soda in the happy meal, you don’t have to get fries but instead they offer apple slices. Basically, you don’t even have to get the meal for your kid, just go to McDonald’s, buy the happy meal, eat the burger and fries and drink the little tiny soda then give your kid the toy, believe me, he/she won’t even know the difference because all they want is the toy.
McDonald’s has teamed up with Disney since the 80’s that I know of to sell Disney related toys to children in their happy meals. I used to work there so I would know first hand. Every time there was a Disney movie out they would make toys to go in the happy meals. This is not new and exclusive to Lego Batman.
I say to all the people who are so worried about this… get a freakin life. Worry about the war, about our economy. Pick your battles.
