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.

This forum should ban kids under 18 too

GTA sequence is for adult honestly im just saying..

 

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.

I agree with you to some extent-- but you're treading on a thin thread brother. Under the age of 17 your brain is technically still developing. There's enough 'violence' in this generation of kids anyways. Letting children under that age play GTA V (or any GTA) is not only adding insult to injury, but, encouraging them to either live a life of someone who's 'above the law' or socially inept in our current society. Sure there are some teenagers/young teens or even kids who have a higher mature levels than others, but whilst they're growing up, wouldn't you want them to fully develop first? Let their brains develop completely, let them know what's right from wrong, and let them figure out how to distinguish virtual existence from reality? I wouldn't dare let one of my angels play this game period. They can play it when they're grown up, on their own, out of the house, and no longer my problem. Lol.

I have heard kids get spanked on this game. Mothers in the back ground yelling and hitting the children for misbehavior the father berating strangers on the game.

Ok, let's change the question here a little.

 

As a parent, you allow your kid to play GTA. You then give your child permission to play it online. You hand him a headset and let him enjoy his leisure time. Suddenly he starts yelling and screaming as if something very personal just happened, not only that but he's using words that would easily get him expelled from school or told to leave a friends birthday party. Do you allow him/her to carry on doing what they're doing? Or, do you take some form of action?

 

I ask this because it was quite clear this kid was either under no supervision or his parents/carers happened to not give a flying f***.

Oh please..you made yourself look bad and now you're trying to play the victim and turn it around on me...pathetic.  As a matter fact, I think you're 'the bully' good day.

 

 

 

 

well aint that a bitch ... 

 

Fact is youve done nothing but insult me, claiming to be this and that and all mighty without contributing with anything but profanities. How am i the bully, i havent attacked you personally at all ? i could quote some of the things you said to me, but im to lazy - but fact is if you said those things to me out in real life i would have your apologies before the end of the night i promise you that, and so would any man with respect for himself. But hey its just a game forum ... so peace out, whatever - just wish you hadnt contributed with all that negative bs when we had something interesting going ... 

 

'profanities'...and you end with the word 'bitch.'  lol Apologize to you...keep trying...I quoted a post and your feeble mind ran away..  High and mighty? Yes I guess I should apologize for being educated. Nice try.

Sure, no problem letting kids play this game.  I want my children to be exposed to drug use, prostitution, sex, and crime as early as possible.

 
omg not again ... Stop putting words into people's mouth, noone said that ...
 
How is that comment putting words into someone else's mouth?   And what is so omg about the point?  The above listed activities are in the game after all.  A game you feel is suitable for children.   I could say OMG to the same stupid arguments of 'well I played as a kid and I'm fine,' an argument which you quoted with the word 'Exactly' :/
How is that a stupid arguement? Are children supposed to be sheltered to an extreme degree? Never to see any violence or ever hear a cuss word? If thats the case please step out into the real world for a quick second. I bet youre the type of person who freaks out when someone next to you coughs and thinks that tons of hand sanitizer is the answer
 
It's a stupid argument because it lacks evidence.  Someone justifying something based on their own experiences and therefore using that as an excuse to encourage their own personal behavior on others is nonsense, especially when each individual human has their own life experiences who shape who they are.  You know f*** all about my life or what I've been through so save you numbskull assumptions for your kind.  Btw in case you're to lazy to scroll up it was krayzn16 who made the comment in which you were referring to. 
K so where is your evidence ?

(& im not referring to any comment except yours)
 
evidence for what?...I was quoting someone else.  I didn't make an argument...duh!
You SAID: "I could say OMG to the same stupid arguments of 'well I played as a kid and I'm fine,' "

Whats stupid about that arguement ? It lacks evidence? Where's your evidence supporting that its a stupid arguement ?
 
Read closely....it's called an OPINION.  I think your argument is nonsensical because it lacks evidence....simple.  Moreover I explained why that is (unless of course you want to deny human experience shapes who we are, cause that's another topic)  I'm not the one here stating things as fact...I think you need to scroll up.

I'm aware.. So what makes your opinion any more sensible than mines ? Where is your evidence? How is my opinion lacking evidence but yours doesnt ? Thats what im asking.

I saw way more violence and drug use growing up in SCHOOL than i saw in video games. should we not send kids to school because the possibility of seeing life changing events/violence/drug use is there ? Is it any less desensitizing seeing KIDS hauled off on stretchers from school than it is to shoot a pixelated mass shaped like a human body ?

 

I don't have time to teach you comprehension skills.

Your brain, regardless of gender, continues to develop into your twenties. That means everything you see, hear, smell, etc. molds what you do, say, and think until you're well into your twenties. Does that mean we should prohibit anyone who hasn't reached their peak of development from playing the game(s)?

You are only here to try and establish that you are smarter than everyone else ... Educated ? You are the epitome of stupidity, a little sad f*ck who gets off by coming on a forum and telling people how clever you are and how stupid everyone else is. English is not my native language but you are not even trying to feel where everyone else is going with their postings, you just keep rambling on with your feeling of superiority. You are nothing but another stuck up american who thinks you are better than the rest of the world, good job on reinforcing that cliche ... I havent even tried to insult you yet, but you just keep coming with your self righteous bullsh*t, squirting disgusting language on others - Educated my arse, i didnt even begin to study english before i was 12 - and you are feeling good because you can beat me in a game of words on your native language ? and you havent even landed 1 single argument about what this thread is about .... so please, take your so-called educated intellect and gtfo ...

Adults playing video games is "appalling" -_-

 

The whole age rating system is just a law. Its the same as watching porn. I mean MILLIONS of people under 18 watch it

 

WHEN IT CLEARLY SAYS 18+ ONLY

 

So..... STFU

 

Go outside and play life. Kids don't have much to do these days so that's a good excuse. If you don't have a disability then you don't have a good enough excuse

I've been in sessions with people who sound like they're 13 and they've ALL been more mature about things than the people who sound older.

 

Regardless

 

Kids playing a M game and acting stupid?  Blame the parents.  It is nobody else's fault.  And guess what you can do about it?  That's right: absolutely nothing.

It's not wise for us adults to judge the kids like this.

 

Let me explain why.

 

I'm 23 years old now. I am guessing most of you are in or around the 18-35 demo.

 

When I was 9, 10, 11 years old. Online console gaming didn't even exist.

 

the first online game I played was Halo 2 i believe. (didn't own a PC at the time so wasn't online gaming on PC)

 

I didn't shout abuse down the mic to anyone when I was younger because online gaming and microphones weren't available to me at the time.

 

I'd like to think I'm a well rounded human being. But I don't know how I would have reacted at the time.

You should have quit while you were ahead.  Save your language for your mother.  Who the hell are you to tell me to gtfo?  You're nothing but a stupid f****** misogynistic Neanderthal, I could have made a big deal about your empty threats but I didn't yet here you are talking more nonsense...can't stand that I put you in your place huh?  Lies and more lies..you claim that you didn't insult me which you did in your very first post thus the reason why I came down on you hard.  You're the epitome of why little kids shouldn't play GTA, many of them will grow up like you with a contempt for women, you deserved the name calling that came your way if you're accusing me of something I didn't say and attacking my character which you did for no reason.  I'm stupid? LOL.  I'm on my way to an upper class degree in an academic field, which I worked hard for and continue to do so.  I am pleased with what I've accomplished in life.    Where did I say I was smarter than anyone else...no probably you though.  Don't try that English second language garbage with me.  Just making excuses for your behavior.  You were more than fluent when you were rambling on huh, just like you did now.  Stuck up American say you?  I've traveled to parts of the world your cowardly a** wouldn't dream of going.  I've lived in the Middle East and Asia and can speak two other languages other than my own because I lived amongst the people not in gated communities, yeah sounds like a real stuck up American huh scumbag... I've got nothing but compliments from foreigners in my real life on how sensitive I am toward other cultures you won't see me on these forums making sweeping generalizations about people of other ethnic cultures unlike some people.  Go play GTA and find a prostitute and then run her over to make yourself feel more like a man.  Ogre.

You my friend, are borderline insane or something - get help pls, before you get hurt ...

Some people really ought to learn some comprehension skills.

 

I'm not having a go at kids who decided to play GTA regardless of their behaviour. I'm simply questioning parents.

 

And the question is indeed a simple one. Why would you let your child play GTA, online, with a mic and allow him/her to scream in a rage (sometimes cry, I've heard it for myself).

 

@JohnM96, "Adults playing video games is appalling"... Oh deary me, you'll look so silly 10 years from now when you can't put down the latest GTA and you're well into your 20's.

 

You can balance "having a life" and playing video games. Really confuses me why people make assumptions regarding things they know nothing about. Heck, I was sent another voice message by another kid calling me a virgin. 

 

The problem with society is that the majority find it easier to point fingers and put people into categorical boxes. Discrimination is a disease.

 

Here's a good one for some of you, would you let your DAUGHTER who's under the age of say 14 to play GTA? And why?

 

(bare in mind I never said I have anything against that, for those with a lack of reading skills)

personal hate messages...lol, I sent you a clear message titled f off and stay off my profile.  yes actually I should be doing something else, I've got it in front of me.  I'm supposed to be taking notes and reading the Iliad by Homer, I'm ahead in my academic  schedule so I've got time to keep going toe to toe with you.  I'm stubborn and you won't quit so....it continues lol.  Why I play GTA...that's another discussion...but why would you care anyway...I'm not a man so clearly I don't find the prostitute thing fun or funny but I don't let it ruin the whole game for me.   

 

 

Seriously dude, dudette, whatever - do you really think anyone cares ? its just you and me throwing insults at each other, noone knows who the f* any of us are - and even if they did, they would have seen this a million times before .. You seem to take real offense in something i said and went for me, ok fair enough, but now its becomming some wierd pride thing and about keeping up appearance on these boards `? why would you even want to send hostile personal messages to me ? because i clicked on your name and saw your profile ? You my friend, are borderline insane or something - get help pls, before you get hurt ...

 

Ladies - gentlemen, I assume it's time for me to step in.

 

Now, let's sit down and discuss what is the problem here. What the goal is, is that I'm going to have to try to make you both to find a solution with a peaceful, non-hostile discussion, unlike the one you currently have. I'm a certified GTAForums therapist (taught by Dr. Friedlander), and I can attempt to let you have a civil conversation, letting both parties to say whatever they want to say. But please, hostility will not make this progress any further. Let our first target is to have the both of you to be civilized.

 

Whoever wants to begin, may begin the discussion in a civil manner.

Where did I say I care if people care....I was talking to you and only you...you are such a f****** moron...referring to people as crazy is usually what idiots do when they've lost the argument.  So I'll take that. :) I stand up for myself...I know it hurts you.  Oh and yes you shouldn't have clicked on my profile...I didn't click on yours (until I messaged you)...you know why...cause I could give two s**** about anything that has to do with you.  Now as I said in my pm F off!

 

@WinterEdit...cute, I like your post.  But I give what I get no scumbag is going to lie and bully me..

Here's a good one for some of you, would you let your DAUGHTER who's under the age of say 14 to play GTA? And why?

 

(bare in mind I never said I have anything against that, for those with a lack of reading skills)

 

Yes. Knowing my daughter i would (she is 15), but she would have to play it in the same room as i am in. And i would ofcourse be engaged in what she is doing when she plays the game, and comment on the things she sees on screen. I agree that GTA5 should be m rated, but its a good story and you underestimate the kids when you say they will automaticly be sociopaths by playing it. Besides, everyone knows what the kids get exposed to already - surely you want to give you kids some tools to handle this right ? You cant do that by banning stuff, they will just find their answers elsewhere ....

 

edit : and you - First lady of gta should start acting up to your own standards, i wont drag the argument with you further.

Now, you see, that is alright.

You can reply towards Kromix, I am not preventing that, if he indeed started the argument. But now, I'm hoping for Kromix to cease the argument, and start explaining the problem from his view, calmly, without any sort of enrage (from either sides).

 

As long as you can agree to disagree on whatever quarrel you had, I find it to be progress. Not perfect, not ending, but progress.

 

Now, if anyone wanted to explain the backstory behind this dispute, it would be splendid.

He won't, that's the point...he's keeps going and then calls me crazy for replying which obviously I will because that's my personality.  He misquoted me and someone else and made assumptions about who I am as a person...so that's how it started end of page 2 or beginning of page 3 I think...whatever... However you did put me in a better mood...so thanks. :)

 

p.s. hopefully he's gone....I just scrolled up he is.  Good riddance.

Thats sweet. No im here, i was hoping the thread was back on track. I obviously offended you when i misquoted you, and you derailed the whole thing with all your personal rantings - all eager to tell everyone that this matter was settled in other threads which you have written in, and how stupid we and our silly arguments are. Now i tried to get it back to the topic, but you simply insisted to keep on comming with your personal attacks until i lost my cool. That was my first mistake. Second was to try and mend it once again cause this little princess is very butthurt still. Now ill probably do a third mistake by trying to get the topic going again be here comes :

 

 

Some people really ought to learn some comprehension skills.

 

I'm not having a go at kids who decided to play GTA regardless of their behaviour. I'm simply questioning parents.

 

And the question is indeed a simple one. Why would you let your child play GTA, online, with a mic and allow him/her to scream in a rage (sometimes cry, I've heard it for myself).

 

@JohnM96, "Adults playing video games is appalling"... Oh deary me, you'll look so silly 10 years from now when you can't put down the latest GTA and you're well into your 20's.

 

You can balance "having a life" and playing video games. Really confuses me why people make assumptions regarding things they know nothing about. Heck, I was sent another voice message by another kid calling me a virgin. 

 

The problem with society is that the majority find it easier to point fingers and put people into categorical boxes. Discrimination is a disease.

 

Here's a good one for some of you, would you let your DAUGHTER who's under the age of say 14 to play GTA? And why?

 

(bare in mind I never said I have anything against that, for those with a lack of reading skills)

 

and i responded

"Guys kids shouldn't be playing these games because they're too immature!"

 

Half of you are getting into a heated argument OVER THE INTERNET over some silly disagreement. And yet you say that the KIDS are immature? Honestly, the logic on this forum is so ridiculously flawed that it hurts.
