Welcome to LagDads! Home of Family Friendly Video Game Reviews, Man-Cave Must-Haves™, and a quick burrito recipe for those late night gaming sessions. We’re here to help you be a better gamer, while becoming a better dad. We can show you great video games for dads, your kids, and for you both to share, but first, let me introduce you to a few things. Over to your right is our ‘Family Friendly Scoreboard.’ You’ll find this guy on every review. It let’s you know  what to expect from a game, and if it’s alright to share with your kids. Every parent is different, but we’ve refined our ratings system to focus on having fun and building good characteristics, while avoiding unnecessary adult content like violence and strong sexual themes. It will also tell you how awesome a game is we’ve played, and if you’ll like it solo.

Let’s try it out with a great game I’ve recently played, called Injustice: Gods Among Us. You can see at a glance I’ve given this game 3.5 out of 5 stars. Let’s see what we’re looking at:

Family Friendly Score 3.5
2.5Morals
2Humor
.5Teamwork
2.5Language
2Sexuality
3.5Violence

Morals: Does this game have redeeming qualities like building character? Are there themes like trust, faith, doing good, and the like, or is it morally bankrupt?

Humor: Is this game funny? Is it telling jokes or just being sarcastic? Is it goofy, silly stuff, or more mature? We’ll rate the game’s overall sense of humor.

Teamwork: Does this game let you play with your kids, or let them play with others? Does it reinforce team building themes?

Language: Sassafrass! What kind of language shows up in the game? We’ll let you know if the banter is salty or sweet.

Sexual Content: Brown chicken brown cow! If this game has overt sexual themes, we’ll be sure to call those out and tell you what’s going on.

Violence: How furious are the fists of fury? Maybe they’re just a little upset! We’ll tell you how violent this game is and why.

Those are the basics or our review system, although some games may have other fields. The Family Friendly Score will let you see at a glance if a game is okay for you and your kids, or if it’s a Dads Only kind of experience.
