Warning: You've got to read to play Harvey Birdman

Justin McElroy

Our friends over at the Wiicast noticed a pretty upfront warning on Capcom's new Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law game, and one that, in the in interest of public welfare, we figured we should pass on. You've got to be able to read to "fully enjoy" Harvey Birdman. Confirmed. This raises some pretty obvious questions.

Are there many games that don't require reading to fully enjoy? Are there poor souls out there stuck, staring at title screens and wondering why people say video games are so fun? Also, how is a non-reader supposed to read the warning? We know, we know, this message could be designed for parents. But if we may be so bold, if that is the case, perhaps a book would be the wiser purchase.
