How many times has your children come home from school talking about a new video game he/she heard about from their friends? We are in a generation where things like PlayStation 2 video games have never been bigger, but where do you draw the line? When do you tell your kids, “No, you can’t play that game.” It’s a hard decision to make, especially when they are influenced in school by others.
It makes it even harder on us to give you reviews because different ages constitute certain games that can be tolerated. Think of it as taking your kids to the movies. If they are 5-10 years old are you going to take them to see a rated R movie? Most likely not, and the same discipline should be set for PlayStation 2 video games.
So we decided to give you some of the top PlayStation Pokemon TCG video games in each category so you can get better control on your children’s games at home. Some even go as far as sitting down and talking with their kids about the situation. It is a good idea, especially if they go to a friends house, where the availability of inappropriate games for their age can be played.
For those of you who are new to PlayStation 2 video games, they have ratings for each game with a letter on the box. E is for Everyone, T is for Teen, and M is for Mature. Common sense will show you what is and what isn’t appropriate for your children’s ages. However, the categories here make it a little easier.
The E rated games doesn’t just mean they are Sponge Bob Square Pants PlayStation 2 video games or Dora the Explorer. It could mean Madden 08′ or any other sports games. The best for the age appropriate games are those that go from the movie screen to your game consoles. Ones like Madagascar, Cars, Meet the Robinsons, and other movies where adults have already seen the outcomes.
T for Teen movies revolve games that have a little more graphic details like WWE Smackdown vs. RAW where hurting someone else, and less clothing is more evident. Then things where death comes into play, without the graphic gore. Games like the Final Fantasy collection that takes months to complete, but magic and sword fighting is required to reach the end of the game.
M for Mature are those games that only adults can really understand with a lot more gore and sexual narratives. The killing is graphic in games like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas where shooting police officers and picking up prostitutes is the way the game is played. Other popular games like Metal Gear and the God of War series are also rated M for the way people are killed and the overall strategy of the game.
