Kids playing adult games
NOTE: Inappropriate is an opinion, but these games have content the majority of people would consider inappropriate.
For the polar opposite of this article, see "It's made for kids".
Many gamers around the age of 10-12, unfortunately, have been playing M-rated (Mature) games such as Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Some kids may be influenced by these games and rebel against their parents, which leads to controversy, having people believe that video games are truly bad for kids.
Parents letting their children play such games isn't necessarily a bad thing, but parents who allow their children to play such games should come with supervision and they should be aware of how their children react to certain mental stimuli and should do research into the games they're purchasing for them.
For example, Grand Theft Auto V has multiple scenes and features which many would consider inappropriate for children, such as:
- A scene where Trevor tortures an Azerbaijani man in order to assist in a government-sponsored assassination being carried out by Michael.
- A strip club with full upper-body nudity.
- A cult of old men who mostly wear no pants or underwear.
- Not to mention the violence and profanity.
The point of this entry is not to discourage the sale of such games to parents for children (it would be entirely hypocritical if we did), but to encourage parents to talk with their children, and research into the games they're buying and making informed decisions about letting potentially at-risk children to play such games.
