So, dealing with kids and video games every day has made me very surprised at what some people allow their children to play. Not only are children playing Mature rated games all the time (17+), there also the games that parents allow their children to play even though they don’t seem to look into what it actually is! I mean, cartoon games HAVE to be pretty innocent, right??
Well, welcome to a few of the games that have been popular with young children in the last year or so.
The premise of this game is that you are trying to sneak into your neighbours house to see what is going on in his basement, you sneak onto his property
and try to lure him out to break into his home without him capturing you and….
To be determined? What I will say, is that after a couple of times getting captured you start to get glimpses into something nefarious…
Okay, this picture isn’t nefarious. It’s just showing the awful graphing. You can stand on a ledge and turn around to hang over space, and you won’t fall. There are also things that fall through solid objects… the game is a little broken.
When you break into his house and get into the basement…
There is a bed (surrounded by soda cans and such, like someone has been down there for a long time before) with fake windows and when you break through them…. Well, things just get creepier and creepier!
I just wanted to ask, where are my parents, and why aren’t they looking for me???
Five Nights at Freddy’s
You are a night security guard who gets a job watching a Pizza Party Restaurant (a la Chuckie Cheese or Choo-Choo Charlie’s, or anyone has ANY idea what those are!)
this place consists of animatronic animals that just so happen to go into “free roam mode” during the night (according to the voice mail left by your predecessor), which means, they wander and apparently try to shove you into a Freddy suit… Which, doesn’t sound so bad except for the fact that the suits are already stuffed with animatronics, wires, etc… So, immediately causing death.
You also only have a certain amount of power in your security station, so, as these bloody creepy animatronics are disappearing to come kill, you only have a certain amount of power to look at the screens, and more importantly, to close the locking security doors. So you have to watch these creepy buggers stalk to different rooms (but, not too closely since you can’t waste your power), and you have to try to save power to save yourself!
I did NOT know about this one. My 8 year old niece was the one to bring this to my attention, you are staying at your Grandmother’s house for 5 day… The point? Survive. Your grandmother is a freaking whack job, and the point of the game is to run and hide from Granny (who had no qualms with bashing your brains in with a baseball bat), and try to escape the house! Apparently, this is a big game with she and her friends!
It’s a free app on phones and tablets, unless you pay to remove the ads, so I feel like parents may not even realize that their children are playing this game!
I hope that this list helped to possibly clue some parents in, or make them understand what their children are talking about, or trying to purchase.
What Nicole?? No Fortnite?? No. This was a newer fad and really, it’s not bad besides the crazy amount of DLC, and you must always be aware of who you’re kids are playing with online!
