    The last couple of years, 3D Realms has had the "honor" of making the cut on a list of videogames published by the National Institute on Media & the family. Their annual "Video & Computer Games Report Card" lists (in their words) "a snapshot of the interactive gaming industry with a focus on issues related to child welfare". The 2001 report has put 3D Realms on the map again - this time around with Max Payne. Here's what they had to say about Max Payne: (http://www.mediafamily.org/kidscore/chart.asp?ID=3665)

    Due to extreme violence and its portrayal, the ability to cause fear, illegal/harmfull behavior and inappropriate language, as well as some nudity and sexual content, this game is not recommended for children of any age.

    As usual, we're grateful for the free publicity, but again as usual, the government can't quite get their facts straight. Nudity? They playing the same game we put out? There isn't any in the game! Anyway, if you'd like to see what else they had to say about other games, you can check out their website,http://www.mediafamily.org/index.shtml or their 2001 report card. http://www.mediafamily.org/research/vgrc/2001-2.shtml
