Question One for the game gurus

OK I know most of you are sporting new PS2 & Xboxes.......

I'm thinking of getting the kids a playstation 1 for xmas, I think I may have secured one with 2 games Grand Turismo2 & someother game that sounds like a beatmeup type one. This thing also comes with an adapter thinggy so 4 players can play.

Some of you know my kids are 12,11 & 8..... So my question is what games should I look out for & what ones should I avoid for kids that have had enough violence in their short lives........

Also has anyone been successful getting games of ebay that are usable as this is I think about the only way I can afford these sort of games.....

:s6:

i have a PS1, but prefer driving games. i have a wwf game but cannot get the hang of it. i also have resident evil (probably not for the kiddies) which i cant understand either. i like the shoot 'em up bits, but hate it when you kill all the zombies and still cant find your way out of the stage. and that is stage one for me.

back to the point, ebay should be a good start for games. check the sellers rating. it is displayed as a number in brackets after their userid, eg rsgerry (21). bby clicking on the '(21)', i brings up comments made by other ebay users. if someone has lots of positive comments, then you should have no problems. it may pay to check with the seller also if the games are the bali games. if so, your console will need a special chip to allow the game to be played.

as for which games, i would say to use your discretion as you would with the tv. the games come with ratings, G, PG, M, MA, so whatever you let your kids watch on telly would probably apply to the games. as a suggestion, generally the sport games are G rated. resident evil is MA rated and contains graphic violence.

Games on PS1 aren't usually that voilent (visually, anyway). Just go by the ratings on the box, although some ratings are absolute rubbish. Usually they are over rated. as in Tomb Raider 1 had an M15+ rating .
