Why are 10-13 year olds playing CoD online?

Isn't it for 17+?

Atheism is a terrible bet. It gives you no chance of winning the prize.

Because their parents buy it for them.

Because the game is designed for 10 year olds and not 17 year olds.

Seriously. Follow-the-leader campaigns full with mindless explosions and handholding, map layouts designed for campers, killstreaks/score streaks/anything with "streaks".

(EDIT: "Streaks" promote camping. The developers/publisher (more likely Activision's choice) know that most 5 year olds don't have very much ability to play games yet, so they design the game so that you can win by not actually playing it. You're punished for actually playing the game, and rewarded for sitting in the corner.)

Heck, look at the commercial for BO2:

You can't honestly say that commercial is aimed at adults - it's for kids! CoD is not for mature gamers. It's for kids that want to feel cool by playing games that seem like they're for adults (but really aren't).

Did you play your first M game at 17? No? Then shut up.

I actually found it offensive because of this. The gameplay is completely patronizing and unrealistic, but the subject matter is incredibly dark and mature. Too dark and mature.

The Afghanistan level, where you're blowing up tanks with one shot from the back of a camel, is just ridiculous.

Pretty much this. *resists urge to correct grammar*

I was playing M-rated games since I was about 7, and have been exposed to R-rated movies since I was an infant. My parents just made my siblings and me cover our eyes for the sex scenes..

you can the same thing about GTA games

What's the difference? You have to have that same mentality if you are still playing this garbage.
