With video game publishers releasing an increasing number of titles with potentially objectionable content, the Timothy Plan family of mutual funds has compiled a guide to help parents decide if the titles on their children’s wish lists are really appropriate.
Art Ally, president of the fund family, contends that “Many, if not most, parents who buy their kids video games really don’t know the extent of sex and violence imbedded in them. From drug use, prostitution, murder and mayhem to vulgar profanity and blasphemy, these games have become a powerfully negative influence on our kids”.
At Timothy Plan’s web site, www.timothyplan.com, parents can obtain a report detailing what Ally describes as “some of the most violent and offensive video games ever to be available in my lifetime. I believe, if parents would take a moment to look at the report we’ve created, their game selections would be quite different.”
Ally adds, “While not all video games are bad as many are educational and even encourage physical activity, it is ultimately up to the parents to do research on this crucial issue.”
