Is Halo 3 okay for little Johnny?
Parents who struggle with such decisions may now turn to an additional resource.
As reported by the Los Angeles Times, John Davison, former editor of popular video game magazines like Electronic Gaming Monthly and Official PlayStation Magazine has launched What They Play, a website which bills itself as “the videogames guide for parents.”
Said the former EGM editor, the father of two young boys:
We wanted to provide a place where parents can turn to for neutral, objective information on the games their kids might want to play.
We really believe that it’s the parents that should be controlling [what games their children play]. And the best way to do that is to tell them the facts so they can make the call.
Former Ziff-Davis colleague Ira Becker is partnering with Davison on What They Play.
