Speaking of grisly deaths, for a game seemingly devoted to cooperative play, NSMBW is disturbingly devoted to making you watch your friends die, over and over again. The game is challenging enough solo, but add another player and the game, with its bumpy physics, becomes a Herculean challenge. Play with four players, as Shigeru Miyamoto inexplicably seems to want you to do, and you're doomed to do nothing except get angry at everyone else playing. Families have disintegrated over this one, we're sure of it.
