Overview

If parents are confused about computer games-if they don't know the difference between FPS or 3D RTS or even what those are-then this is the guide for them. Explaining everything that a responsible parent needs to know about computer games, this title touches on all aspects of gaming: the benefits and the limitations of the PC platform for games, the details of the computer and video game industry's rating system, why some First Person Shooters (FPS) are better than others, and what children can learn from a 3-D Real Time Strategy (3D RTS) game. The guide contains a comprehensive list of existing and upcoming computer title games, arranged by genre, publisher, and industry rating, as well as descriptions and suggestions regarding appropriate age groups.
