Nintendo DS Health Control Game Timer is So Asian It Hurts

Illustration for article titled Nintendo DS Health Control Game Timer is So Asian It Hurts

This Health Control Game Timer may be incredibly weird to Americans, but Asians know exactly what this is for—taking the place of parental nagging.

The HCGT does two things: beep when your face gets too close to the screen and beep when you reached the 30/60/90/120 minute game timer limit. This is essentially what my parents nagged me about when I was playing my Game Boy in 1989—get your face further away from the screen and stop playing so much. So thanks, Health Control Game Timer, for bringing back those wonderful memories for $40. [Game Timer via Impress Watch via Kotaku via Dvice]
