The majority of those reviews were done by adults who never actually even played the game, they gave it as a gift, or even if they have played it, they see it through very different eyes than a child.
Sarasota, Florida (PRWEB) December 13, 2013
Ten thousand times a day, a parent will buy a highly reviewed game for their son or daughter. The child is thrilled, the parent is happy, but 15 minutes later, the blissful bubble bursts. The child finds that the game is too difficult, hard to understand, boring, not as good as the last game… why? Store policies often don’t allow returns, everyone is disappointed, and the bank account is lighter by some $30 to $60.
We’ve found a solution, or more precisely, a kid came up with the solution. GameWoog! http://www.gamewoog.com is a game site which is run by children who actually review new games themselves so kids and parents can figure out if they are a good fit before buying. Finally, a game review site done by kids for kids that actually speaks to what kids like, want and enjoy in video games.
How many times has a parent seen high star ratings and reviews of games and thought to themselves “this one must be great,” only to find out it was a poor fit for their child. Why? Because the majority of those reviews were done by adults who never actually even played the game, they gave it as a gift, or even if they have played it they see it through very different eyes than a child.
The GameWoog kids break down their reviews into simple summaries that concentrate on story quality, replay value, difficulty and kid friendly content; i.e., is it gross, spooky or just plain too adult? The reviews do not go into an involved breakdown of a game play, but rather get to the core of what children really want to know and care about.
Ten year old Woog of GameWoog summed it up like this, “Grownups just do not have the same abilities and interests as us kids. They are able to do things we can’t and sometimes we are able to do things they can’t. Kids just think certain stuff is a lot more fun than an adult does. Plus, adults don’t always know what we think is too freaky either. Some of the scariest things I’ve seen in games were ones with a safe rating or review on them. Adults just miss stuff that to a kid is a big deal.”
