my 6 year old keeps begging me to get zombiu for him, think its appropriate?

Mature or not, a six year old has no business playing a game like this. It's survival horror... Instilling a spirit of fear into a young child isn't a great idea. Neither is violent games at this age... Kids this young are sponges, they absorb everything they see and hear.

I don't know about everyone else but I played the first few resident evils as a kid they scared me half to death, gave me nightmares, but hey it's a part of childhood.

If the kid really wants it, as long as it doesn't have sexual content or cursing I think it should be fine.

Suppose its your job as a parent to decide, you could always sit with him while he plays? its a slow paced game so he might get bored rather quickly

The most worrying thing is the desensitizing. Who knows how he'll grow up to act and he might endanger innocent lives. A parent needs to raise their child well and impose at least the bare minumum of limits.

What is with everyone and their six year olds? I have seen at least 10 6 year old topics in the past week.

It's not okay, but letting his kid see it is another story. I actually agree with this, if he wanted to play it with his supervision and explained it to him, that would be okay.

Sexual themes though are not something a kid needs to see. You are crazy stupid if you think otherwise. How old are you, 14? 15? How far am I off, here?


>Murder, gore, violence is okay for children to see
>Sex isn't

Why can't the kid watch sex and have it explained to him then?


Think about the sexual content in most games. Are they making love, or just ****ing?


Your argument makes zero sense. So, because the people ****ing aren't making love, then that's bad to see? Whereas, full on murder, gore, etc. is fine?

You aren't making a valid argument here.

OT, I'd say a kid shouldn't be diving into M games until they are at least 12. The last thing we need in the gaming community are more 10-13 year olds cursing people out on CoD.

Note: I know TC is a confirmed troll, he's a pretty old troll. Just giving my two cents to the serious posts.

No it's not.

ZombiU is rated 18, you would be a poor parent if you did this, I am assuming you are not a bad parent, you are trolling.

Your kidding right!? Please tell me you're kidding! So it ok for a child of six to act out depictions of extreme violence, horror and gore. Bust open heads until brains fall out, etc. however, a bit of boob and a swear word are off limits??? *facepalm.

I have a 5 year old and do my best to protect her from violence and sexual themes as best possible. Why pollute a young mind with such negative content, this work is filled with enough darkness as it is.
