Take out the garbage, prepare baby food. Mom simulator or the sexiest video game of the year?

Released last November on the Switch, this new video game allows you to simulate a mother’s daily routine, from her housework to managing her household well, and thus gain a personal “sense of accomplishment.”

It seems like a joke, and yet. Nintendo’s video game “Mom Simulator 2023,” released on November 28th for the Switch, is no joke. As its name suggests, it was created to model the “busy and full life of the modern mother”, her daily tasks of housekeeping, home and family care to enhance her missions. a sense of accomplishment.” Unsurprisingly, UFO has already been labeled by some as the “worst video game of the year” and shows, according to the webzine. Hitek: , the popularity rating is so low (-84%) that Nintendo is already selling its price displayed at €1.99 since launch. Moreover, in addition to its undoubtedly sexist nature, the game would be a total failure for those who wanted to try it anyway.

A commercial failure that ultimately turns out to be encouraging. Because among the tasks of a young mother there is something to drown. The description says: “Players walk through detailed routines that reflect the life of a busy mom. This includes waking up, cooking meals, getting the kids ready for school and managing household chores. And the designers have not spared these parental (and therefore, not to say, feminine) missions, from “grocery shopping, cooking to helping with homework and organizing family outings. Each task presents a unique challenge that requires time management, problem solving and patience. Obviously, because the game also praises the way in which the character will manage his emotional state. Patience, calmness, perseverance and understanding. the main characteristics of being a “good mother”.

Sexist piece

Online users, albeit a small number, criticize the work and its designer, Nintendo. “We have something to shout about here. Mom Simulator for real? Cooking meals, taking care of children, a sense of accomplishment?” we can read on X, the former Twitter. But still. “I thought of Petite Sexiste (feminist association which lists all discriminatory things, objects or remarks, editor’s noteMom simulator 2023… no, but if it turns out, it’s just to make men realize the mental burden they don’t share,” asks another, in disbelief. And one more. “For my part, in fact, at this moment I am clearly in the place of this mother, therefore father. They should have called this game Mother & Father simulator, it would have been more fair and above all balanced. Either way, Mom Simulator really is the trash game this year.
