Everything was going fine until the pointless section on fps games. Why they would choose to highlight this specific genre to begin with I have no idea, especially in a book for early readers (my son is 6 years old). But they don't just mention the genre in general, they also mention two M rated games by name, both of which very much deserve thier M ratings. It's like a book for 6-8 year olds about movies including a mention of Alien and Saving Private Ryan.
I think more thought should have gone into what games were included in this book. Even in the fps genre there are teen rated games that could have been highlighted. Or the author could have stuck with material kids in this group can handle, E rated games only. I'd let an E 10+ slide, but games meant for 17 and up with nazis, excess blood and gore, scenes of terror, etc.? Not so much.
