Parents who buy their underage kids COD games need a reality check
None of you have any idea what you are talking about.
Please enlighten us.
I boosted some of my trophies. Please, judge me about it.
I was twelve when I had my parents buy me Doom. Now, mind you, this took a great deal of talking with them regarding it, its content, and my age and maturity. In the end, they let me buy it, and I had a blast with it.
While I can see a parent buying a game for their kid that's outside their age range, if you will, I doubt that same parent will ask the kid what game he wanted, hear about its content, then make sure it's what the kid wants without even thinking about it or reacting to it in any way, shape, or form.
If it was me, and my kid wanted a game like, say, Halo, and we had that sort of talk, you'd be sure when the lady tries to talk me out of it, I'd tell her we had a big talk about it, and he knows the first sign he's acting immature enough to handle the game, he's losing it.
I was playing Doom at age 5. I went to a top 20 business school where graduated in the top 5%. I currently am working full time as a finance industry professional. I have killed 0 people in my life, probably only got into 2 minor fistfights when I was younger. I'm not saying violent video games are great for young children, but if your parents are still able to teach you right from wrong so you're less influenced by games, you'll be fine.

well said +1 that mom is a total disgrace and the kid turning out like that comes to no surprise at all.
I used to care but now I take a pill for that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KaOrSuWZeM

I say that because I know for an absolute fact that the majority of us were playing DOOM and MK when were young. For whatever reason, a lot of kids from around that time period grew up to be elitist douchebags who like to control any fun other groups of people may be having.
Even if it was, CoD has nothing on MK. A spurt of red mist and ragdoll physics is about as tame as you can get. Frankly, aside from a few scenes from Black Ops that I've seen, I don't grasp how the CoD games have M-ratings at all.
Agree with this topic. I wouldn't buy my child these types of games.

You're infatuated with CoD.
i dont know about the other things but he did have the game earlier
And for us teens and adults, we have to be the ones hearing little kids crying about they died of lag or they're being trolled by the opposing team. Its sad but sadly its 2012 and people get even more dumb every year on some bullflarg.
I don't have a problem with parents buying a mature game for their kids because it's their children so they make their own choice. What I do have a problem with is these same kids going online with the games and disrupting our games. I know this happens on the ps3 as well, but if you go online with the 360 all you hear are kids yelling in the microphone because they are losing in the game.
