The [URL=http://www.commercialfreechildhood.org/]Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC)[/URL] is taking children’s TV network Nickelodeon to task for linking to “naughty” online games from its [URL=http://www.nick.com/]Nick.com[/URL] and [URL=http://www.nickjr.com/]NickJR.com[/URL] websites.

CCFC claims Nickelodeon is promoting “sexualized and violent video games to children as young as preschoolers” by cross-linking to its sister-website, [URL=http://www.addictinggames.com/]AddictingGames.com[/URL].

Among the titles to raise CCFC’s ire are Naughty Classroom (Hot for teacher?...Here's your chance to fulfill your ultimate childhood fantasy), Foxy Sniper (Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. Fear me, because I am a crack shot!) and Dark Cut 2 (More macho surgery! No anesthetic. No antiseptics. Just rusty knives, corn whiskey, and lots of blood!).

Nick had apparently pulled some games from the site after it received complaints toward the end of last year, but this was not enough to appease CCFC, who said that, “Nickelodeon was clearly more concerned about protecting its reputation than protecting children.”

AddictingGames.com does have a rudimentary warning system in place for games that “may be a little “edgy.” Such titles are flagged on the site with a picture of a small bomb. A short Parent’s Guide to the site [URL=http://www.addictinggames.com/mc/parents.html]is offered as well[/URL].

Concerned parents are urged to take action on the CCFC website, where [URL=http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/621/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=1903]they can submit a form letter[/URL] to Steve Youngwood, Executive Vice President, Digital, Nickelodeon Kids and Family Group.
