If you’ve been paying attention to the recent media furor about video games, then there’s a good chance you want to know about the PlayStation 4. Check out our complete guide to the PS4 launch. If you’re looking for something else, then this Parent’s Guide will help point you right to it. Our intention in creating this guide is to assure you that the games and products featured here not only are devoid of objectionable content, but also are of a high quality and will keep loved ones happy at least until next summer.
Remember, though, that almost all videogames contain content that may or may not be suitable for your child’s age group or your personal standards. Fortunately, the ESRB is dedicated to making sure that games are clearly labeled using a ratings system similar to that found in movies. For the most part, you can rest assured that these ratings are clear and reliable.
For your convenience, we have provided direct links to our e-commerce partner, Gamestop.com, which is the online component of Babbage’s (the reputable software retailer) and uses secure Internet protocols to protect you and your valuable information. Its site will provide you with quick deliveries, good values and, even better, no fighting over the last copy of Bonker Jerks at the local toy store. So this Christmas, you can point and click your way to holiday harmony. The site will even tell you when an item is no longer in stock, or when you can expect delivery.
