Chose the Right Game


In today’s episode I’m discussing the way to choose the right computer game with my uncle and game expert Marc Bodmer, who has been working in the field of interactive media for more than 25 years. Marc talked about the myth of computer games and violence. Recent research, Marc shared showed no relationship between violent computer games and violence offline. He emphasized, how important it is to follow age guidelines, and content appropriate to the preference of the player. He’s not a fan of the free-2-play-model and suggests that families should look at subscription models like Apple’s Arcade or Google’s Play Pass. And: It’s valuable to play with your child and for children to play with patience together with their parents.

This is the second episode of a series focusing on video games and the interdependence of interactive entertainment and players of all age groups.
