I remember playing mortal kombat and other over the top violent games when I was 8-10.
Oh shut up with the "he's too young", I started playing GTA at the age of 10 (and other violent/f*cked up games) here I am at 23 with a degree, a career, nice car, girlfriend and soon a house! H
And never once in school did you "play" Mortal Kombat / other "f*cked up games" with your friends? Hitting, kicing "for fun", which later resulted in someones getting hurt? I don't think it's suitable for a 11 year old kid to play a game that introduces him to drugs. The game is based around reality and some people have problem with defining what is real and what is a game. Especially children.
But then again, I don't think these kind of games suits people who has some psychic instability. So much sh*t in this world. It's sad to read the news about children murdering children.
You seem to be combining my post with the guy who quoted me.
But no, I was the nerdy kid at school, and struggled with social skills because of bullies until I grew up and went to uni, where you realize none of that sh*t matters.
I have experimented with drugs and smoked alot of pot while I was in university, however I still got good grades and while I don't deny there was an addictive element to getting high all the time, it wasn't hard to clean up as soon as my career required so. So in my eyes it was never a problem, and made me more of a relaxed/creative/intelligent person in general.
EDIT: And find me one story of a kid with a normal upbringing and no psychological problems (which I would agree is a reason for a person not to play a game like this regardless of age) who has committed a crime solely because of GTA
