Kids Today - what are they up to?

This is a game for the popular handheld device, Nintendo DS .

It appears to be "Phoneix Wright - Ace Attourney"

What possible amusement can there be in being an Attorney? Imagine the onlg plane or car journey. Keep the kids quiet in the back as they busily check land registry entries and ensure tax record are correctly filed for a house purchase transaction, or maybe instigate divorce proceedings on behalf of a cuckolded wife? Rock and roll eh?

You can see why the Daily Mail thinks kids are all turning to glue sniffing and petty vandalism.
Maybe this game is supposed to help them see the consequences of crime - get an "ace" lawyer and you will probably get off scott free!

Then again, maybe not. The main character is called "Phoneix Wright" - which implies he is a "good" - in the "not evil" attorney, as well as presumably being "good" in the "thats why they call me "Ace!" " way. So, he's probably not even going to take a case he might lose - so you dont even get to defend gangsters in court, never mind go oon a cocaine fuelled killing spree after a particularly hard day in chambers....

What is the world coming to ?
