The funny thing is.... I actually don't find the violence in COD games to be that.... violent, or gory.


its funny to you but kids get scared alot easier, they get scared of things like dark. For me when I a child even a thing like someone dying in a story took a huge effect on me. Theres supposed to be a progression of what you expose your child to for a reason. You allow your kids to watch shows/movies or play games at first that seem to be silly to you(in terms of violence) and then as they get older you are suppose to slowly expose them. Not throw them out into what YOU think is the acceptable level of violence.

When this game first came out, dolphins with human male anatomy was annoying, but somewhat under control.

These days every other emblem has something to do with anatomical features of men and/or are racist and homophobic in nature.

My 5 year old son watches me play for a couple of hours everyday before bed. He asks what those things are and I have a hard time explaining some of them.

I know that this is a game intended for "Mature Adults", but let us be honest. Children are present. And because of that we need to be the best custodians of our environment we can be and keep it clean.

If we can't do this together, younger people, like my son, will have to go back to watching cartoons - and I really don't want to raise a "brony"


Hmmm... sees being a brony as being bad.... yep.. all bronys are bad.... just like the liberalists, and the independents....

Here is the bottom line:

1) Who actually cares who lets their kids watch what? Give me one good reason why I should care about that. In this entire conversation, not one person has come up with a legitimate reason. Fact is that kids are not SUPPOSED to be subjected to this content, but here it is... THEY WILL ANYWAYS! I am not going to adjust myself for your parenting ability if you are going to let them watch/play something like this. That responsibility falls on the parents. As long as their kids don't start torturing small animals, I'm fine with whatever they watch. On that note, I will still call "isn't it passed your bed time" on those 12 year olds who are busy playing CoD late at night.

2) Nudity, sex, homosexuality, language, racism are all going to be made into emblems whether we like it or not. It's stupid to think otherwise. I believe such emblems are pathetic to have, but that won't keep them from being made. Anyone who uses them I consider less of a mature player, but who actually cares what I think a mature player is?

3) The developers added a feature to report people other players find to have an offensive tone or offensive "sense of art". They put it in there, and you better believe I WILL be using it. I couldn't care less who else uses it, it's not my place to say "this is why everyone should be reporting offensive emblems." Using it or not will not change your status of a gamer or a few choice other things people may say about those who actually use the report function that I am not allowed to say here.

4) Enjoy the dang game! There are worse things to worry about than what happens on a stupid video game.

Actually back when I was a kid.... I was only scared of the dark, and scary movies.... not violence.

You make me sad mr. Awesome, Every time I point out how blatantly negligent you are as a parent you clam up. What's wrong, can't come up with any excuses for yourself? Nah, you don't have a kid. I know it, you know it, I imagine most people here know it. You are just another pathetic troll craving attention.


TLDR: Get the **** off my board failtrolldipstick


Fact: I have a 5 year old son

Fact: He enjoys watching me black Call of Duty

In this thread I have been villainized for that one simple fact by people who:

- defend pornography as freedom of speech even though it violates the TOS Agreement
- defend racism as freedom of speech even though it violates the TOS Agreement
- enjoy both pornography and racism, probably at the same time
- are homophobic
- are anti-christian
- enjoy spewing hurtful insults

and the fact that YOU are sad is laughable. You have not been dragged across the coals for trying to make this game a better experience.

By the way, how hypocritical of you to call me an attention craving troll. Have you not pestered this topic begging for a response from me? TLDR, kinda makes it MY board, huh?


Way to completely avoid my point.

Fact: you say that a child has no business looking at emblems like that.

Fact: You know that those emblems exist.

Fact: You let your son watch anyway.

Fact: If you yourself condemn an act because of its inappropriateness for children, and still chose to expose your son to it, that's negligence as a parent.

like I said before, I agree the emblems are trashy and should be reported. But you trying to blame everyone else for exposing your son to it is laughable. They aren't exposing your son to it, you are by letting him watch you.

You don't take your son to an R rated film and then blame the producers for exposing him to things do you. No, you wouldn't take him because you know it isn't appropriate. At the same time, once again, you know it is there but still choose to let your son watch you, you are the one exposing him.

The funny thing about that argument, what about parents letting their kids even go outside, where there could be suggestive ads/billboards/perverts/drug dealers? They should just lock their kids up in a room never letting them watch TV/internet/talk to anyone. Yep, you are right.

Really? Are you that stupid? A good parent isn't going to ever have a 5 year old near drug dealers. Ad's and billboards aren't allowed to have that kind of explicit content anyway, at least not in the states. A good parent is also going to monitor what their children are watching on TV, why do you think there are all the "parental control" programs out there.

Same thing about being outside. Most of the areas you are going to run in to "adult" content, are in adult areas. As a parent you should know better than to have a 5 year old child in those areas. Why do you think there are age limits for so many things? because up to a certain point it is necessary for healthy development of a child.

Quite frankly, I could care less how TC take care of his kids, or if his son watches him. But when someone knows something is wrong, and choses to not censor their kids from it, that's just pathetic. That's not even me saying it's bad (although I do agree) TC said his son shouldn't be exposed to it.

So, i can sum this up in a very simple question.

If you think your child should not be exposed to inappropriate content, why do you expose him to it?

You sound like a parent who watches R rated movies in front of their kids and then thinks it's funny when they start saying curse words as toddlers.

There is inappropriate material out in the world... yet parents let their kids go out into the world... hence from what you are saying, all parents are bad parents.
