Video Game Tips For Parents

Surely, you have heard of kids talking about the latest video games for their PlayStation 2. As parents, you are always on the lookout to make sure that your children would only be playing those games which would be appropriate for them. And so, here are the games in the different categories which you may deem suitable for your kids, depending on their ages.

The first would be the E rated games. These would be the “for everyone” games. These could be SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer or even Madden `08 or any of the other sports video games. Probably the best age appropriate games would be those that go from movie screen to game console. Examples would be Cars, Madagascar, Meet the Robinsons along with the other ones where you have already seen the endings.

The next would be the T or “for Teen” video games. These would be those games which offer graphics that are a bit more detailed. An example would be WWE Smackdown vs. RAW. You could expect a little violence and sexual graphics. However, when death comes into play, the graphic gore is not present.

Last would be the M or “Mature” games. These would be the games that only adults could really understand. There are a lot more gore as well as sexual narratives and the killing is usually graphic. Example of these games would be Grand Theft Auto where there is a lot of shooting of police officers as well as picking up of prostitutes are involved. Also examples are the God of War and Metal Gear because of how people are killed and their overall strategy.
