The game, formatted for Nintendo's Wii console, has reached the pinnacle of profanity in gaming, setting a Guinness World Record. Where do we go from here?

Sega's The House of the Dead: Overkill for the Nintendo Wii console has broken into the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition for the most swearing in a video game, with a whopping 189 uses of the f-word.

"It is a dubious honor to receive such an accolade working in an industry where so often, the fruits of your labors are derided and dismissed for being puerile or irresponsible," said Jonathan Burroughs, the game's writer. "But in the case of House Of The Dead: Overkill, a little puerility was the order of business. Parodying the profane excess of grindhouse cinema was Headstrong's objective, and I am flattered that this record acknowledges that we not only rose to that challenge, but entirely exceeded it."

Clearly, this game is geared toward an adult audience, though you probably don't want to show your grandmother how to play the Nintendo Wii with House of The Dead as your example game.
