[photopress:it_rainbow_island_1.jpg,full,alignright]China’s Ministry of Culture has recommended ten cyber games that are suitable for minors to play as part of its drive to purify the on-line environment for the young.
The ten cyber games have been selected by the ministry’s on-line games censorship committee from scores of games recommended by the Chinese public.
The games are all domestic products. They include five role playing games (RPG), four recreation and chess games, and one educational game. The games have titles ranging from Warring States II Online to Rainbow Island Online and on to Wonderlands of learning and games.
According to the ministry these games have made their way into the final recommendation list because they are deemed ‘healthy’ and can ‘enhance intelligence.’
This does not answer the question as to whether the young will actually want to play them. Still the ministry hopes the list could serve as a guidance for parents to better direct their children.
