Saw parents buying Far Cry 3 for their kids in Gamestop the other day

TC when you see a guy walk into Gamestop and throw feces around and laugh like crazy then see him buy Far Cry 3 then you should worry. As far as 8+ year olds, not an issue. Seeing as if your 7 or maybe it's 8 and you commit murder in most states you will be charged with the crime and the law would say that at that age you know right from wrong. It's up to the parents to decide if their child can play those games or not. The last thing we need is government involvement on the sales of video games.

Replace the Dr. Pepper 10 with a Coke Zero and I could see that being me in about 10 years.

I don't see a problem here. Children and young teenagers are the main target demographic for M-rated games. We adults play mature games like Pokemon.

I know what you mean, TC. I've seen tons of kids walking around with Black Ops merchandise and seen others walking around with the games in their hands knowing their parents will get it for them.

Worse still, I went to see Looper and The Dark Knight Rises and both times they had young and younger children with them.
Baffling.


i went to see TED with friends and i saw a father with his 5 year old son. His son didnt understand anything about the movie since the father was luaghting along all the movie....

Not talking like late teenagers either. What **** ty parents. These parents will be the first to complain about the content in games like this, but here's an idea, don't buy M rated games with stuff like hardcore Violence, Drug Use, Sex,etc for your eight year old. The sex scene in the game isn't that bad, but there is worse things happening to some of the main character's friends.

And Gamestop will sell it knowing the parents aren't buying the game for themselves when it was the kid picking it out.

Maybe the problem is M ratings. Some games that have M ratings like Call of Duty Black Ops, Halo or, whatever gets the M rating for having basic shooting and the occasional cuss word. In reality, it's more of a teen game, and it pretty much caters to young teens. Then ignorant parents will just assume every game with an M rating is like that.

Not saying games like Far Cry 3 and TLOU should be AO, but saying maybe some of the other shooters should get a teen rating since they aren't really that graphic or violent.


Why don't you mind your own business...? Better yet, why don't you have your own kids so you can start parenting them instead iof everyone elses kids... You probably live in America because that's all Americans like to do, get into other peoples business.

Maybe you should worry about yourself and not be so concerned with strangers. You don't know the people or the child so how can you make an assessment of their parenting skills?

Ratings are put on games to inform the parents of the content and to protect sellers from selling games to children who's parents might disapprove. There are no laws against a parent deciding that their youngster is able to handle such a violent game.

I know you're a liar and you haven't proved anyone wrong this week, or last, or the week before.
