Choose safe video games for kids


Do you know what's in the video games your kids are playing? Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most popular games of the year, and is on many kids' wish lists.


It features drug use, murder, erotic nudity and other things you don't want your kids seeing, much less participating in. Still, I know plenty of parents who bought it for their kids without thinking.

Before you buy your kid, or grandkid, that hot new game, do your research. The Entertainment Software Rating Board has surveyed over 30,000 games and assigned ratings to help you make the best decision for your child. With the ESRB's Game Ratings app, you can get that information right in the store.

You can search for a specific game's rating or you can browse though ratings to find a game that will best suit your children. Don't remember the name of that particular game? You can browse by platform, rating, or content.

And the app isn't just confined to video games. The ESRB also rates mobile apps and downloadable content. You can even see of the game shares personal information!

Make the best decision for your children and be sure that they are playing appropriate games for their age.
