Parents sometimes find it hard to get into the minds of their offspring and offer them what they want for Christmas, or for their birthday. Even though they know kids (and especially boys) love video games, they still have trouble in choosing what's right for them. That's why WhatTheyPlay.com
has issued this guide, to help determine which systems and video games are ideal for your family.
Making Holiday Wishes Come True is the first written objective online guide that presents parents with an insight to help them better understand the themes, content
and player experience of the latest and most popular video games. The guide, available right here, is highlighted by accessible write-ups of the most popular video games and wide-ranging profiles of nearly every gaming system such as PlayStation 2
, PlayStation 3
, PlayStation Portabl
e, Xbox 360
and of course PC.
This insight also features a "Buy This Game" link to Amazon.com's huge software and hardware product catalog. Amazon.com is the official partner of What They Play: "Kids know exactly what they want when it comes to videogames, and trying to make sense of it all can be incredibly daunting for parents," says John Davison, president of What They Like, Inc. "The partnership WhatTheyPlay.com has with Amazon.com enables us to benefit from their insight into what games are the most popular, and which ones are featuring on holiday wish lists. Rather than making recommendations, Making Holiday Wishes Come True provides parents with helpful insight about the games their kids are asking for. Much like our website, WhatTheyPlay.com, the guide ultimately empowers parents to make easier and more informed decisions."
Of course, parents will need to know what kind of games are suitable for their offspring, as far as their age is concerned. As such, ESRB
President Patricia Vance stated the following: "ESRB ratings help parents make informed decisions when buying video and computer games for their children, but the ratings are just one tool among many that parents can and should use. Especially during the peak holiday gift-buying season, we encourage parents to go beyond checking ESRB ratings information on the front and back of every package sold. By visiting WhatTheyPlay.com, parents can read write-ups and view other materials to better familiarize themselves with a game's content to determine if it's suitable for their children."
Just so everyone understands, WhatTheyPlay.com is a product signed What They Like, Inc., which doesn't offer recommendations about the games and systems they should purchase for their children, but provides parents with a guide on what's available on the market.
