Media Moment: Cooking Mama 4
Here is the trailer for Cooking Mama 4 for the Nintendo DS. This game has floored me since its first release. The game features a girl and the only activities are cooking and cleaning. They even tempt consumers with bonus levels of stacking plates. I can only imagine how much damage this is doing to children who play this game and get so easily influenced by it. The main character is always happy and perky and smiling and happy to cook all this food. Oddly enough, the voice over is done by a male. Why do you think they chose a male to do the voice over? Do you think young girls are taking away a message from this game? What about boys who play it, or see someone play it?
