Looking for age appropriate video games? Just look to GamerDad for some advice

Filed under: Toys, Gadgets, That's Entertainment

This is the time of year when the abundance of video games available in stores can simply overwhelm a shopping parent. When my son was small, I tried to keep abreast of which games were age appropriate and which might be more likely to lead him down a path of car thieving and violence. But as my son has grown and I have added two more kids to my collection, I simply have not been able to keep up with what's what in the gaming world.

Fortunately, the folks at Gamer Dad devote the better part of their time during the pre-holiday season to informing parents which games might be a lovely addition to your child's collection and which ones are better left on the shelves for the older kids. I just read GD's review on The Legend of Zelda for the Wii system, yes there will be one of those under our tree this year. The review was thorough and convinced me that perhaps I should also buy the game to go with the new system. Go check out Gamer Dad if you are having any questions about your holiday video game shopping excursions, they'll be sure to set you straight.
