That's "hippie", not "hippy". Then again, I guess you people don't believe in education.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

I agree with most points brought up on that list. I'd recommend any responsible parent to at least take a look at it before buying said games for their children.

This is the most retarded article I've ever seen.

Coming from a 13yearold i could see how you would have problems with articles that would limit the amount of games you play. Did you read the article, everything they listed were solid facts, and i for one would consider twice about any of these games if i had small children.


Yeah...I can play any game I want if you didn't already know that, thanks. Except the simple thing is...it's really retarded.

I mean, what's this?

"I'm sorry, what? A 10 year-old boy is traveling the countryside with an old professor he has no relation to? By all the ESRB's guidelines this is an E-Rated game with no objectionable content. Players step into the role of Luke, a young boy who solves riddles and puzzles and gets praised by his older professor friend. Though the content is not explicitly M, the thought of a young boy traveling the countryside with an old man is as creepy as an alter boy sharing room in a confessional booth with a priest.

Talking about Professor Layton. And there are also other stupid things.

I hope this is a joke.


 Yeah what is wrong with young boys and older men?

Love ya Soriku <3.

 Congrats you can play whatever you want, but can you buy whatever games you want.  Stores have stated before that they will not sell games to underage kids if they are buying M rated games.  If they are selling games to minors then maybe someone should phone the stores and have a word with them.

I also don't see anything wrong with what they said about that game.

 @LordTheNightKnight, why would i list what the article is saying in this thread?

The best part is, their #1 don't play for kids 'Professor Layton and the Curious Village' is on another list of theirs that kids should be playing

Do they even consult each other when writing these articles?
ROFL

It took one sentence in to the first game to expose itself as a pretty obvious joke. Come on guys. You can figure this out.

I don't see a problem with the site, the games they listed should not be played by young children and i applaud this site for giving parents the resources to avoid these type's of games. Have you guys read the reviews for Z&W, its not for kids, most of the reviewers were dieing 100's of times, the puzzles were also too hard for young children.

Dude, please don't talk. Not because I'm offended, but because the kids you seem to be refferring to sure as heck ought to be.

Children are smart, and the only ones who aren't are the ones who keep getting told that games like Zack and Wiki are too hard for them. As long as the content itself is appropriate for kids then you just stay the F*** out of the way of their ability to challenge themselves.

If they're getting frustrated to the point where they're pitching a fit, their parents need to go "okay, that's enough game time, take a break and try again tomorrow" that's what my parents did for me. Otherwise, let them learn, cause kids don't learn based on how old they are. They don't have to reach age 8 before they can learn the multiply/divide technique. They can learn it as early as they're introduced to it and are given a chance to figure it out.

If it's a game, kids are willing to put themselves up to a challenge, to talk to friends about how to beat the challenge and then keep trying to figure out the challenge until they solve it. What happens when they solve it? TADA, the kid has more knowledge and has just expanded his or her mental reasoning skills.

 

Oh, and yeah, the professor Layton thing is also a sign of severe paranoia. Older guy + younger guy must = Butt buddies despite absolutely no signs, hints, or any other overt circumstances. Even though no kid would POSSIBLY ever have any reason to think about those circumstances being present, I'll tell him not to play it because I'VE come to the conclusion that bad things are happening to characters that are NOT REAL.

 



Seppukuties is like LBP Lite, on crack. Play it already!

Currently wrapped up in: Half Life, Portal, and User Created Source Mods
Games I want: (Wii)Mario Kart, Okami, Bully, Conduit,  No More Heroes 2 (GC) Eternal Darkness, Killer7, (PS2) Ico, God of War1&2, Legacy of Kain: SR2&Defiance


My Prediction: Wii will be achieve 48% market share by the end of 2008, and will achieve 50% by the end of june of 09. Prediction Failed.

Congratulations Grey Acumen! You hit the nail on the head! Get the heck out of kids way by telling them they are not smart enough for this difficult game. LET THEM TRY! They can decide if it is difficult or not.

I suppose it is kinda difficult in this day and age to expect American Exceptionalism to shine through...



i see some of the points of the article, however some of them are pretty far fetched. not all E games are appropriate for all children, it really is on a kid to kid basis and should be left up to the parents to decide. this article gives a decent explanation on why some games might not be appropirate for kids. Hopefully, the parents use good judgement in determing whats appropriate and whats not.
