well i can say this.... GTA IV is for 18+ so why are a bunch of 12 yr olds raiding the forums? really dudes when i kill you ingame dont take your dads pistol and take it out on your school buddies okay???

Now all this whining about my 360 version is better then your PS3 version or my PS3 version is better then your 360 version is so childish grow up already. really who cares? aslong as you enjoy the game whatever console its on why cry and whine like a baby that yours is better. Really when i was younger and GTA liberty city hit the streets i remeber one of my friends saying stuff like "Oh ima get my GTA before you!!" i was like stfu dude who gives a toss. once it was released i went over and bought it and when he tried to get his copy it had sold out. i was like yeah dude karma's bitch. eat it and come watch me play on my GTA..... but you aint getting a go.

/rant off.

really your parents should be ashamed of themselves and if you keep it up i will be forced to phone social services and get you taken away. No more sweeties for YOU!

Im sure parents that let their kids play GTA don't even play games and have never been on a forum in their life and are to stupid to realise what these games are doing to their kids, Like mine biggrin.gif

I play +18 rated violent videogames since I was 6. Yet I've never killed anyone, robbed or vandalised anywhere. Its about your family and your genes. Videogames are just something to blame.

This post is about the childish behaviour on the forums, and a friendly warning that in SOME cases children actually turn virtual reality into reality. Unlike myself i mean i played d00m when i was a kid too lol.

Though it has nothing to do with genes it has to do with parents and teaching children right from wrong. and has nothing to do with video games either since we are living proof correct? biggrin.gif

^ haha, well if your mature enough to think your to young to play mature games, then chances are, you are mature enough to play it... lol... besides thats like waiting until your 17 to watch a rated R movie, no one does it.

I agree with the topic starter... however, I would bet that there are just as many over 18 year olds on this forum that are just as immature and prone to ridiculous arguments. Some people are mature and uninfluenced by fictional content, while others are influenced and just not mature. I do not necessarily think age has much to do with it, especially once you hit the mid to upper teens.

As far as parents caring more... they obviously should. I think some parents tend to stay out of things they don't know about. In this case, video games with content that might not be suitable for their children. I think parents should be more attuned to their children's maturity level and decide based on that. Though I am sure there are parents who aren't mature enough themselves.

dude stop with the attacking! you do realize that the restriction is for dummies with no proper education while growing up, right? If his/her mother raised him/her properly then he/she should have no problem playing it! Whats next? dont watch television? dont watch cartoons cause they have cartoon violence? oh, cmon lets remove the internet!

Well it's not only the fact "kids/younger people" get "influenced" by the game(in other words are retarded enough to recreate the actions from the game)... but I think it's also the fact that kids/younger people don't understand what GTA is about.

Yes I know, killing, extreme violence, going postal, crashing cars and just bringing the apocalypse to one city is a ("big") part of the game. The possibility to do so, well it's just amazing. But, that's where it ends with most people (mostly: kids/younger people).

I for one thing GTA is about much more. Just, the atmosphere... the fake brands and over the top, but sometimes correct satire/parody/criticism on society. The game wants to show what's wrong with America/world.

Also, the storytelling is just great. SA was (in my opinion) not as good as the rest. But seriously, R* knows how to tell a great & sweeping story.

And to continue, the humor is just unique. I mean, listen to the radio from III/Vice City/SA/... talk radio, commercials, callers, show hosts... satire again but it's so f*cking funny.

I can even write more things down that most people (referring to kids/younger people) let slide/don't even get. I mean, some of the things they make parody's on aren't known by kids. Or even the jokes.

Well, my post is even too long for people to read (especially when you got kids crying about how bad the graphics are/how they can't marry/get Niko's dong out of his pants...) but I think some of the people will agree with me.

Short said: GTA is just a great franchise, great humor and definatly worth it's 50 bucks. (even when you buy the previous "outdated" titles... "it's just a gift that keeps on giving").

Yes i foolhardily know what they mean even more then most does. I don't really care if kids really play this game, it's when it get's out of hand that's when i come in. We live in a f*cked up country, something has to happen first, then they take it out on everyone here. So what i'm saying, one little brat has to abuse this game and blame it in my country, and all of a sudden my government will come out on all it's population and then no more rockstar for any us. Do you understand that part ??

Everyone saying how the game is convincing you to drive drunk, and shoot people, and have sex with every hooker on the street, that's annoying as hell, sometimes people cannot grasp the fact this is a game. Just because you shoot people ingame dosen't mean to go snipe off a building in downtown..

Does age discrimination make you feel really big? Really superior?

You know you're a big man when you can call somebody a twelve-year old!

Hey i don't mean to bitch at you, you are still enjoying this game witch is good thing. I'm from the Netherlands, and i my country currently is kissing other countries ass, so if one other country decides that this game is no good. They will bann it in my country too. Witch means, even if i am older then 18 i can't even play this game. Witch actually sucks. They already banned a game like that before. I just hope it will never happen witch this one as well.

Hah, funny thing. No one read my post about this matter. Ah well, proves me right again (well, not 100% right but it certainly proves it for the majority of "kids" on GTAF).

The game is designed for 18 or older. This may mean something.

If you will actually try and do something in real life thats from a video game your parents really need to learn how to parent. No child that is brought up properly is actually going to go shoot people on the streets or steal cars to get around.

And to the OP the game is 17+ not 18+, not that it matters because 1 year doesn't make someone all the sudden become mature enough to play this game.
