A British magazine aimed at primary schoolchildren has been featuring images of adult-rated video games.

The most recent issue of Cool Kidz, contains images of five games that carry age ratings of 18 years, under the European gaming industry's rating scheme.

The images show explosions but not the visceral, bloody combat or scenes of a sexual nature for which the games are frequently criticised by parents' groups and women's rights advocates.
