I've been playing GTA since I was 9 or 10.

7 years...sounds about right.

Of course, I've been playing games since I was 6. Seriously since I was 8.

Ive been playing GTA games since 2 came out, I never had it but my friend did, and id go over his house for take-and-turns style killing sprees!
i was 10 when i played gta3. then it became serious, i was so amazed by this next - gen game and i was properly hooked on gta since then
im now 17. and i play GTA SA nearly every day.
I see nothing wrong with it.

Haha smile.gif sherraldo.

Well, the question is not if you are under age, but if you are mentally capable of dealing with it ...

But I think playing GTA games at you 7/9 years is a bit extreme ... you can't even make connections between what's happening ... what you all see and real life. (e.g. most of them won't understand the story, humor or even what is being told on the radio... even the native english speaking!).

And don't give me crap about "we don't kill people"... I'm not a JT who thinks that is ... but that's not the point, the point is you have to "get" the game ... know what's going on. The game is ment for mature/grown up people, so you should be able to "reason" on a bit of MATURE/GROWN UP level, which obviously 7/9 year olds can't.

Well, started with the GTA 1 PC demo... 3 minutes (i think) time limit.

If that was 97 then i was 12.

Im 21 now, 22 in Nov.

As for when i first seriously gamed?

Lets just say that when i first started windows 3.1 was just out and you had to learn Dos to play a lot of games.

Good old Dos.

Well i've started with a copy of Vice City when I was somewhere around 8. Or 9.
Then I've played SA... Maybe when I was 10.
Then I downloaded III when I was 11.
I am 12 now...

I'm curious is an AO rating 18+ or 21+?

If it's 18+ I'd have to agree with what someone said about R* putting whatever they want in it even if it does earn an 'AO' kids will get it either way. It's not quite as sick as a game like Manhunt 2 so I somehow don't think it would be banned (I disagree with the banning btw, adults should be able to choose for themselves what they watch/play, I'm not a fan of Manhunt either tounge.gif I played like half an hour and thought it was a bit sh*t.)

I feel sorry for those guys who have strict laws and have to play censored versions sad.gif

On topic I'm 19 smile.gif

I first played GTA3 when i was about 7 or 8,Im 16 now,Personally i think they should just scrap the whole age rating crap,If someown is desperate enough to buy the game they could easily get an older friend to buy it or order it from the intraweb,I think the government are just being c*nts,LoL do they really think that it would stop underagers playin the game tounge2.gif

Oh yeah i also went to my local GAME for the midnight release(will never forget that,was soooo exited i was peeing myself) with my mum when SA came out and it was soooo funny because half the peeps there where 13-14 year olds with their mums and dads

What the hell? Only 6.87% of the people on the forum voted in the 21-25 category. There must be a lot more people around this age group than that! I for one voted in this category (I am 22) this game is aimed at the 18+ age group but most here seem to be well below 16 wtf?
