Stop Smoking Coach on DS


Recommended Posts

I just stumbled on a description of this game, I figured it was a joke. But after searching a little bit there are ebay listings and ign listings. How have I never heard of this before?!! This seems like something I should have seen become an inside joke on here or back on NA. But Ive never seen it mentioned. It just seems so ridiculous that it should have been a mem or something.

I remember seeing it in GameStop, next to all of the “Learn Spanish/French/German/etc.” coaches. The DS was something else, a weird cultural phenomenon that’s hard to explain to kids that weren’t around for it back in the day.

I mean I could see the language learning, though boring its something that kids would participate in. But to stop smoking? Was there really a large enough base of adults trying to quite smoking that also had a DS?

You don't question why shovelware exists. You only accept it.

If I do remember correctly, Nintendo was banking on adults owning the handheld themselves. The marketing for the DSi XL showed older adults with their system sideways like a book for reading software.

I don't even think this qualifies as shovelware, it is its own weird thing. lol

It's definitely border line.  I'm guessing the company had a tool for training-ware generation and they had covered the top 4-5 languages, and were looking for something else to easily make a few bucks.  I could be wrong though.

Regardless, I've wanted to hunt down a sealed copy of this just because I agree it's quite an oddity.
