More UN-inspired games!
<<Peacekeeper>> This realistic first-person shooter simulates a typical UN peacekeeping mission. Points are earned by:
1) Surrendering to enemy militia (Somalia mission)
2) Ignoring helpless civilians being slaughtered by militia (Somalia and Rowanda missions)
3) Doing nothing (covered in every mission)

<<Internet Standards>> In this near-future simulation, you get to sieze control of the Internet and turn it over to the UN. All the Sim-city features you love are includede!
1) Watch net-commerce wither under UN tax-laws!
2) Impose oppressive e-mail levvies!
3) Systematically disconnect the "evil" Israelis from the internet after declaring them to be nazis at a UN sponsored WORLD PEACE FORUM!
4) Add layers of beaurocracy to "manage" the internet!

And best of all, these brain-wasting titles are all ESRB rated G! For General Gullibility!
