It's an absolute joke. I know of there existence online already but I've just been sent a raging voice message from a boy who sounds like he's barely a teenager.

 

I know not to take what he's saying seriously but I'm worried for this kid, what are his parents doing?

 

He tries to ram into me during a motorcycle race and knocks himself off the bike, then proceeds to shout insults into his mic as if he's an adult.

 

C'mon parents/carers, this is appalling.

Would you let your child play GTA?

As long as you play video games online, you'll run into kids. It comes with the territory.

Definitely. I played GTA as a kid and I was taught how to seperate real life and vidya games.

And you think it's acceptable to have your child screaming down a headset swearing in a clear rage at another person? It couldn't get more obvious this kid has bad parents.

 

I too played GTA as a young boy but as soon as my parents heard or saw any of the 18+ rated stuff that would be it for me. Letting your son/daughter play this particular game online though and letting them own a mic AND allowing them curse in such fashion is stooping very low as a parent.

 

There's a reason why you must be 16+ to play online in the first place and atleast 18 to play gta

And again: There is still the thing that GTA V is far more realistic than older titles (on par with GTA IV).

 

You cannot compare it to your childhood just because you played GTA 2 when you were young.

If i ever hear my kid act like most of these kids do on voicechat hes f*cking grounded for 6 months and no more videogames.

But if hes raised even slightly like i was then it should never be a problem, some parents out there need a good talking to

I feel exactly the same. I dont even play the game when my boy is in the house nevermind letting him actually play it and I'm finding it incomprehensible that any responsible parent would.

I've been playing computer games since they were on cassette tape (over 30 years) and nothing compares to this game in terms of realism and graphical content. This game was made by adults for adults and kids have no business going anywhere near this game.

As for kids talking crap over the mic i think thats the only way they can talk that way to adults and get away with it. In the real world they wouldn't dare talk like that and if they did they wouldn't last 5 seconds. I find it the same in this forum and it is quite amusing. They tend to get very brave and vocal due to their anonimity but its so obvious they would never behave like that when talking to anyone face to face.

Not this conversation again, please. One's age doesn't equal their maturity level, let's just get that straight. There are people on these forums, GTA, and the whole of the internet who are 18+ and are the epitome of immaturity. Kids are naturally childish, but there are a good amount of them that can handle content given to them, be it violent games, violent movies, or violence in real life. Age restrictions are a good standard, sure, but they shouldn't be an absolute when it comes to gaming (laws are a different story). If I had a child and I believed he/she was mature enough to handle the content, I'd let them play/watch it. If I noticed any violent behavior, imitation, or attitude, I wouldn't let them. Common sense should be the standard, not your birth year.

Bad kids will be bad kids. The game doesn't make them that way, what about the silent majority who don't shout and swear on mics?

The work I do heavily revolves around kids and that's with all the babysitting and care stuff I do for friends and family aside. I take pride in being a good coach/teacher/carer, I feel sick when I hear some of these kids online. 

 

I, as an adult sometimes feels irked when playing this game. I stabbed a random pedestrian the other day and not only were the sound effects very realistic but the way the guy flopped to the ground made my stomach turn a little.

 

I know you can grow up perfectly "normal" even if you play games like GTA but there's still an element of risk involved. The name Anders Breivik springs to mind everytime I hear some of the youngsters laughing in lobbies

ITT: "In my video game, the adolescents are acting the same way as the adults."

 

Guess that proves they're immature enough to enjoy this content responsibly. Time to find something new to worry about.

Absolutely, I think everyone should play as long they don't act as a kid, but that seems impossible.

Games like gta or any 18, r rated game are seriously damaging to kids, any parent that allows their child and their developing mind play these games is child abuse..end of.We are always gonna get kids playing games they are not meant to because thier parents are to bloody lazy to take the time to inforce what is chronically damaging them, its not a childs fault if they are online in gta.

Time to grow up for you then and leave the video games for kids, if you get that frustrated over something like that.

I started playing GTA when I was 11, and well I didn't turn into a psychopath. But the 12 year olds these days are terrible, they have no respect atleast the most of them. They can't handle games like this one, but there are some that can. Don't let your children play a game like Grand Theft Auto, if they can't handle it and start insulting others online.

No matter what generation, they will always say kids were more respectable in 'their day'.
