Classification Of Games
There are many people who control the classification of games that are played online and there are other entities that control the games played at home that can be played online. Most games for home use require no ratings because they are deemed appropriate for all ages. Some of the online games are classified so that they are suitable for use by children, young adults and adults over the legal age. While these are safety precautions to ensure that all people enjoy the games most suitable for their age group, the online gaming community is unsettled by the controls that are placed on their games by people who have no right to control what they do because they are played on the internet. Many people hate the classification that pertains to the games that they are allowed to buy because the legalities of the classifications are not equal on all sides. Many parents have no control over which games their children play on because the online games are played in another home environment.
The online video games that have the capability of accessing the internet will work with many consoles suited for home use. These online games are classified again with a rating for the amount of violence that is portrayed by characters that are not real. Younger children may be exposed to these games and think that the monsters in them are real. The rationale of online gamers is that the real-life action and gore is only achieved in a virtual world and becomes real when the player brings it into real life. Many gamers never intend to expose the younger children to the unsettling details in their video games and parents feel relieved of responsibility when rules are set for game playing that specifically mention gamers from keeping them away from siblings.
Since they can operate through the unfettered realm of the internet, many people think that they should be able to play what they want no matter what type of visuals comes up on the screen. Parents are inundated with pleas that they feel they can not refuse. These games are the latest craze in gaming and if their child is excluded from them there is a chance that they will not fit in with the in-crowd at school and be an outcast in their local neighborhoods. Games were supposed to bring families closer by allowing them to spend quality time with each other. Some families think that prohibiting such games will settle the dilemma that they face but kids can be very adamant about the games that they want to play. Parents are left with few choices and hope that future trends for games will return to providing entertainment that is suitable for the whole family to enjoy together.
