Seriously how come there are many children in COD and Halo online?

I am not going to talk about their parents because this is useless. But I am sure MS knows about this issue and decided to do nothing about it.
I mean it is so obvious on the majority of online MP sessions in these games as they keep yelling during the whole game, before and after!

I know we can mute them but how come did they manage to get a copy and how MS is neglecting this when those kids are the most vocal and annoying players in Cod and halo communities!
I mean it is easy to know who's who and ban their accounts, at least when another 8 y kid comes and somehow get a copy he won't use his mic to annoy others!

Why on earth would MSFT take action against a section of it's customer base because *you* don't like them playing Call of Duty!?

Also, if it is okay with the child's parents that they have the game, I'm afraid that is where the buck stops. You can't complain about it and make it go away. But I am sure you'll continue to complain anyway, about things you can not alter or adjust.

If people don't complain, nothing changes.

And I agree with TC. Is it too much to ask that when I buy an M rated game I'm not forced to play it with children?

Because little kids like bad games.

I played halo mp nearly all day yesterday and had no kids yelling, and maybe 2 or 3 people speaking in a different language but nothing to be annoyed at. Talked to a lot of nice polite people and had a great time. I must be lucky I guess.

Yes, yes it is too much to ask to start dividing the community because you don't like who you're playing against, more so when you have the capacity to Block/Mute them.

Oh look, another forum poster making a big deal of nothing. I've been playing Halo nonstop since launch and I could count the amount of random people I've seen using headsets on one hand, none of them kids. And I know I'm not just 'special', my Live experience is no different than anyone else's. MS doesn't have a system in place just to keep kids out of my matches.

The fact that you're even mentioning this makes me wonder if you're even playing online at all. Or maybe that ONE little turd got on your nerves so bad you forgot how to mute. Happens to the best of us, bro.

Why are there a lot of children playing some of the most popular games ever created?

Gee, I wonder!
