Google Ads abound. Some links named like games, but go to more ad pages. Banner ads sprinkled throughout.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this site features a limited amount of arcade games -- and most of them are jam-packed with violence. Lots of hand-to-hand combat: fists flying, knives slashing, blood-squirting action. There are many variations of the shoot 'em up games with the player controlling guns, grenades, automatic weapons. (The specific goal of one game is: "…clean up the woods, have fun killing all of these nasty inferior beings.") The one thing this site has going for it is the graphics are simple and on a small screen. Therefore the gore intent is there, but definitely has its limits. And there are a few harmless games sprinkled in. Google ads abound; to the left…to the right…at the top…on the bottom. Some are tricky too; they boast names of games, but are actually links to ad pages.
Is It Any Good?
What REALGAMES.COM lacks in quantity, it sure doesn't make up for it in violence. Gunmaster, ALIAS: Artificial Lifeform Intended for Assassination and Sabotage, Tailspin, Heli Attack…you get the idea. The graphics are old-school and on a small screen though, so even though the gore is there, it's not depicted in a realistic style. However, these games do include players holding shooting weapons, controlling vehicles that destroy things or people, and use of fists to plummet people (with multiple blood squirts for extra effect).
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
