teens on cell phones 2An organization is warning about a popular app that is polluting the minds of young people.

Steam, a videogame platform, is described as the Walmart of video games according to Dawn Hawkins of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.

She says Steam offers thousands of video games to over a billion users, including 35 million who are 18 years old or younger.

"We are upset," says Hawkins, "because Steam offers over a thousand video games that have extreme sexual violent content, nudity and so forth as their game devices and it's very easy for kids to play these."

Her organization motivated thousands of people previously to contact Steam, asking that the company change policy and remove the content.

The company seemed to respond positively – at first – then National Center observed as the company "completely backpedaled," according to Hawkins.

National Center is asking people, especially parents, to speak up as they did before and let Steam executives know how they feel about pornography games being readily available to the nation's youth.
