A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

The heavy emphasis on gaming means that much of the content is geared towards promoting games or teaching people how to beat them, including various technical "cheats," tricks to help defeat opponents, and the artificial intelligence used by the games.

Violence

Many of the games that are featured on the site are violent, and the clips include combat, gun fights, and plenty of destruction, often with bloody and gory images.

Sex

Adult film actresses are mentioned by name, and identified as such. Some of the game clips also include female characters in very skimpy costumes. Some segments require users to click a box to verify that they are 18 or older, and others include a warning box that the content may not be appropriate for young people.

Language

Some video interviews contain profanity, including "f-cking," though the forums are generally pretty tame.

Consumerism

This site is all about games, and heavily promotes individual titles, game franchises, and the major gaming systems. There are video clips from games, previews of upcoming releases, professional advertisements and lots of user-submitted videos. The site also promotes several adult entertainment companies, such as Playboy.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this hardcore gaming site contains violent and gory game footage as well as a good bit of racy content, including interviews with adult film actresses and clips of women in their underwear.

What's it about?

It's all games, all the time, at PWNORDIE.COM, a fan site that features reviews, forums, news, walkthroughs, cheats, promotions, and plenty of other content, all about video games. There are trailers for upcoming releases, clips from actual games showing how to beat particularly difficult challenges, interviews with fans, and celebrities discussing their favorite games. Some clips are provided by users, some are action sequences taken straight from games, and others are professionally created publicity videos.

Is it any good?

PWN is gaming slang for humiliating an opponent, and people who already know that will probably find much to like on this site. If you've got a game fanatic on your hands, be aware that PWN has lots of bloody brawls, big explosions, gunfights, and scantily clad women -- shown both in the games and playing them. Though there is no sex or nudity, and the terms of service bar
obscenity, the "over 18" content areas are easily accessible.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what appeals to them about various game genres. What makes a game inappropriate for kids? If you like to play video games, would you be entertained watching clips of other people's games? Or do you think that playing is only fun for the players, not an audience?
