Yesterday got an E-Mail (I won't dissclose)from a very pissed parent.
It seems the kid downloaded Duke Nukem3D and ran into the dance hall. Shifty So I suggest that you put up one of those "Mature" images. I know, he couldn't do anything to me. "I'm not resposible..." But if you don't want "Bad" E-Mails put up those images. I'm adding them to my games now. LINK -Duke3D

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

Bobo its not your fault that the kid downloaded Duke nukem. The parents should have had some sort of protection on their computer dont you think???

Hexen is nothing compared to some of the Windows DOOM Ports, like jDOOM and DOOM Legacy. The blood splatters all over the screen.

This applies to Dosgames.com as well, so I'll leave it here.

Yes, while it is the parent’s responsibility to watch what their kids download, some sort of a rating system would be nice. For instance, in Level 3 of Shadow Warrior there is a hidden Easter Egg where you walk through a waterfall and find a nude woman which probably makes the game inappropriate for children… if there were a warning (for instance “site rating: M for extreme violence and some nudity) then we could at least say “hey, we warned you, if you downloaded it anyway, it’s your fault.”

This is a very good point, one that I should have thought of myself. I think I'll make up some kind of symbol to put on games that include violent content. For certain games I know I mentioned the violence (for example, Executioners!) but I didn't think to include warnings for games like Doom and Hexen, I guess because I played them when I was young and they didn't seriously warp my mind. (At least, I hope not.)

Anyways, good suggestion, I'll try to implement some kind of warning system soon, to protect myself from irate over-reacting parents. Happy

Although really, having warnings on games would ultimately just make kids MORE likely to download those games, wouldn't they Wink

Of course. Tbbbbbth! But the warning would be mainly for the parents (who hopefully are keeping an eye on what their children are doing), not the kids.
