Amazing Classic Games
These games were so well made that the gaming community made them last for ten or more years!
Although games like Team Fortress Two which don't have good role models which promote aggression, drinking, and smoking. Games such as Half-Life allow you to play as Gordon Freeman, a heroic man who saves humanity from hostile extraterrestrials with guns and a good old crowbar. He also gets help from his team, and G-man (probably a disguised alien) ;P.
The games are quite complicated at first with almost the entire keyboard as an option, but generally speaking are quite easy to use when you learn the standard controls.
High levels of realistic violence and blood and gore are depicted in the games, not as graphic as some of the game trailers, specifically Team Fortress Two (I don't recommend showing your children those). Aliens and people can bleed, heads can be decapitated, and bodies can be incidentally placed in impossible positions that couldn't be done in real-life. The game does not have a direct option to make this feature child-friendly but you should be able to get around it by typing a command into the console which disables most blood character disembodiment. Characters also scream and yell in pain or upon death.
Characters often say words such as "s**t", "damn", "b***ch", "hell", or mock each other in a hateful manner.
In Team Fortress Two there can be half-naked prostitutes on the calenders at spawn (nothing is shown and there isn't much to worry about). Although rare please note that players can abuse custom sprays (custom images on walls) and put any image they want to distract players for extra kills. I don't know if reporting still works during these incidents, considering most of the Valve team have moved to developing other games.
As always, the multiplayer interaction can be abusive through the use of microphones, chat, and sprays. In defence, the game allows you to disabled the microphone (send or receive) altogether or mute specific players. You can also send a report (not sure if it still works), or in your last defence vote to kick players which everyone in-game will vote on. Team Fortress Two has an anti-hacking filter which prevents aimbots and other forms of hacking.
Overall, incredible games that lasted through time and still receive regular updates! However the Team Fortress Two community has changed and is not what it used to be, there are a lot of young players and trolls. We don't know how the future will be, especially with the rise of Overwatch. The games are between being teenage and adult.
By the way, Team Fortress Two is now free to play on steam!
