Parents who want to ensure their children have a safe and enjoyable video games experience now have an additional resource to draw upon.
Everybody Plays has expanded its already extensive knowledge base with the launch of a new Parent's Guide to Games. The hub will offer a range of guides from setting up parental controls, age rating explanations and game suitability guidance.
This new hub lets us tackle issues on a game by game basis, and provide the sort of expert advice parents can't find anywhere else,” editor Ian Morris told MCV.
If you read a lot of guides to setting up parental controls, most of them are written for people who know their way around a console and understand the lingo – yet it may well be the folks who are less well versed who are the ones setting the consoles up.
Our goal here is to provide a resource that everyone can understand, ensuring everyone can find the answers they need, keep their families safe, and get the most out of gaming.”
The site's long-term goal is to take the service and place it where it can more directly connect with buyers. Added Morris: Going forward, we'd love to get this information where it can help parents the most – at the point of sale, in storefronts both physical and digital.”
