    The reality is that there is a glut of family friendly games for Mac OS X and Windows. But in this case consoles stand out for 2 reasons to my thinking. With a smaller set of titles, its easier to build a list of popular titles for each group. The other being that it is easier to monitor what the kids are playing on the (presumably large) tv in the common area of the house.

    Looks like the folks who write for Family Gamer simply don’t play PC/Mac games and that’s why there aren’t any nominated.  Still, it would be nice if they’d bring someone on who does play computer games.

    Whenever an organization like this doesn’t put PC or Mac games in their lists and only include consoles, they imply that there are no family friendly games for PCs and Macs, which is a complete lie.  But people buy into that lie.

    Why are zombies always eating brains? I want to see zombies that eat toes for a living. Undead-related pun intended.
