Video games are not just for kids any more, but have basically come to approach the versatility of movies and shows, with some more appropriate for certain ages and tastes. When picking out games for your kids, be careful of selecting games that may be too violent or mature. Since video games are more immersive than movies, playing violent video games may have an impact on kids’ empathy and may desensitize them to certain behaviors, including violence.
Postal 2 was actually banned in New Zealand and kiwis that illegally get their hands on the game can face up to 10 years in prison and a $50,000 fine. The video game gives players options about what actions to take, but allows intense amounts of gore if the player chooses.
