Hello again, faithful readers!
You know what?
Video games are awesome.
I love ’em.
I love playing them.
But nowadays the majority of V.G.’s are rated M for Mature. WHERE DID ALL THE AWESOME GAMES GO?!?
Personally, I think the best games are the ones made in the 2000/2006 year range.
Unfortunately, this un-kid-friendly stuff doesn’t stop at video games.
Comic books, for instance. Batman wasn’t full of really, really, really, really dark stuff until recently. If you want an example, take the Batman movie The Dark Knight.
Thankfully, not all games and comics are like these.
Now, don’t let me insult you. Maybe you like the things I’m talking about. I’m not saying they’re bad, I’m just saying they’re not all-ages. I’m not gonna like that too much, as I am 12.
Some kids play games they’re too young to play. Their parents have different views than others, different rules, different ideas of what this will cause. Maybe nothing, maybe a lot. Depends on the kid.
Just expressing my viewpoints, as this is something I think about a lot.
I’ll post soon! (comments more than welcome.)
