I'm guessing the whole rated M part of this game is pointless?

I'm hearing more little kids, and when I say little I mean kids who couldn't be older then ten playing this game.

Guess parents don't give a _ _ _ _ what their kids do and say.

 

While I will admit I have let my thirteen year old try the game, I am sitting right there by him, and he isn't allowed to have the volume up on the set.

And if he so much as spouted anything near the language I hear online.... Lets just say he knows better!

 

Maybe I am old, maybe I'm behind the times, but I'll be damned before I see my kids turn to _ _ _ _.

 

So my question is this:

 

To you youngsters, did the store just allow you to buy the game without a parent there?

 

And to the parents, do you even care about the things your kids see, play and hear not to mention speak?

I thinks it's more that most parents don't know what it's about, rather than wanting their kids to be like this.

I'm 16 and my brother bought mine with me. I'd say anyone 15 and up is okay to play this game. After all, it is just a video game and most of the stuff in gta we see on tv. I totally get where you're coming from though. I hear way too many annoying little kids on this game.

Have to agree. I dont have problem with kids but the fact that they are immature is inevitable. Also talk too much on mic causing overall disturbance offcourse u can mute but the they do stupid sh*t senseless gameplay. 

But the real thing is the game is for Mature people only, devolpers did not put M for no reason. Its sad that game having such sexual content and abusive language is in the hands of little kids. bUT OUR CURRENT SOCIETY , THE CHANNELS are even more grave than this game..so i can't decide.

Society is changing gradually old timer, no offence but you're living in the past if you still expect kids to grow up at the same rate as they did 30 years ago.
Whilst many might not agree with it, let's not forget you lot created and developed the Internet not us ;)
Now kids have full access to anything on their mind. It's hard as a parent to fully regulate everything your kid does online especially if you don't know much about it yourself. Bit of a short response as I'm on mob but you get the gist.

Now I feel old. :( Mega Man X wasn't my first game, but the first I clearly remember playing. GTA 3 was like yesterday.

Hate kids in this game. Screaming, whining, demanding, arrogant little sods that should have been a hand job.

 

There ARE exceptions, some kids are ok, but the minute I hear them warbling in a lobby, I'm GONE.

 

Any parent letting their young ones onto this game has clearly had a post natal lobotomy and needs their genitals set on fire to prevent further accidents.  I don't care about the game content, we all grew up with bad influences.  I just don't want to interact with them.   Half the time they are bullying each other or by teens who should know better anyway.  I ain't stepping in to play school dinner lady.

 

If you see one, back off it, we won't get rid of them, but if we immediately switch lobbies or stick to playing with crews and friends, maybe we can stay away from the wee gits until they get COD.

This is what's known as concern trolling, just fyi. Other people's kids aren't anyone's business but their parents.

 

I'm a parent. My youngest plays GTA. He doesn't get to play online because he gets upset too easily and I don't need him freaking out over griefers. He doesn't do missions so he never sees the stuff like Trevor doing Ashley on the counter. What he likes to do is use his single player characters with the maxed-out money (b/c I completed single for him and maxed out his money so he could do whatever he wants to) and he has me put on several cheats for hm so he can go around explosive punching things and escaping to the tops of buildings when the cops come. He also likes riding BMX bikes off the top of Mt. Chiliad.

 

Our culture is violent -- we don't see a lot of it because much of it is exported to other places to support our lifestyle, but it's unbelievably violent. Nearly every video game kids play is full of violence to others, including killing -- even Skylanders, which is my kids' other favorite game, has you killing others. It's freaking hypocritical to expose kids to our insanely violent culture and then tell them that they can't play this or that because it's too violent.

 

I play it with my kid so I can keep an eye on what he's doing and educate him about some of the sketchier things going on around him. He has no idea what a prostitute or a strip club are and doesn't even ask to do those activities. And if he did it would be a great opportunity to educate him about what's wrong with the objectification of women.

 

A friend of mine's kid pooled his money with four other kids to buy a copy of the game behind their parents' backs. So kids are being exposed to these cultural images/messages constantly whether their folks know it or not. At least in a game like this, if you supervise and play with the kid, you can use it to educate them about how not to be a freaking jackwad when they grow up.

 

This article on the subject of kids playing GTA was really interesting.

Whether it's a violent video game or a song or a movie, "the media" is absolutely coherent. Whether it's for political reasons (the gun ban, Colorado's amendment 64, taking amendments out of the constitution), degeneration (Miley Cyrus twerking, Lindsy Lohan wearing lingerie to a gym, every rapper making songs about violence and obnoxious fake egos, then drake and snoop dogg making a song called "No guns allowed" :p), or promoting another corporation's goods as a PR stunt, your kids will hear the same thing on the radio from lil wayne or see it on Comedy Central...

 

OT: I'm a youngster and I just bought $60 PSN Points or whatever with my Student Paypal Card on Playstion Wallet on their website then downloaded gta for literally 12 hours or more. :p

I'm sorry but I'm only 14 and believe that there are a LOT of little kids in this game that whine. One day two 7 year olds! were on a motorcycle shooting at me and taunting me so that I just turned around with a shotgun and blasted them. They were crying two seconds later because I took their bike and dumped in in a river. (Funny thing, they didn't put insurance and cried even more). I had to mute them and they pretty much got kicked because they were cussing and screaming. Sometimes, parents don't raise their kids right...

Been playing M rated games since I was younger than 10, and I'm not a disrespectful A hole.

 

It all depends on the person.

Rating levels should be put on headsets instead, with decibel count limits instead of the age limits.

I love the parents that say "video games are the reason kids are so bad nowadays," and then go buy the game for their kid.

Smh.

I have brought up the point many times to friends that GTA 5 makes GTA 3 look like sesame street. They were way more subtle in 3 than they were in 5. In GTA 3 you had "spank" as a drug. In GTA 5 they talk about real drugs. coke,meth,ecstasy. Hell they even have Trevor as a necrophiliac meth head cannibal. Its waaaay different than the silent protagonist in 3

A game's rating rarely prevents it getting into the hand of young kids.  My first game was the original Resident Evil back in 1999.

Nobody will ever stop somebody getting their hands on what ever they want. Guns, drugs, porn, or M rated games. Still funny as heck when you get a dumbass and take their car and listen to them cry give it back. I will beat it up as much as possible before dropping it off way up north in the mountains.

When I was in the store buying GTA:4 a kid who couldnt even see over the counter slid a copy of the game to the clerk. The clerk asked if he had a parent and a lady replied that she was the boy's mother. The clerk asked the lady "You do understand that this game consists of murder, drugs, larceny and about 10 other felony types of activities and is intended for adults?'. She shrugged and said "Yah, so? Whatever, I'm still buying it.'. The clerk was left with no other options.

I don't have a problem if kids have to have their parents buy rated M games.... But I've very rarely run into actual mature kids who play mature games

I heard a kid over chat that couldn't even comprehend what to do, "who is this guy? oh I just died? oooo, look at this car, that's like a, I don't know, I like it, you know, can I steal it? why are the cops after me? why am I dead?" So on top of being annoying, he didn't fit the age requirement for gameplay let alone content.

I always get a laugh when i hear a child claiming they are mature. They would not even know what maturity is much less if they are it. Simple age though after a certain point still does not just grant maturity upon reaching it. I was over 18 before life dealt me the cards that i needed to broach that definition. Some people these days are still living with thier parents and taking on no responsibility well into thier 20's and go through life playing games and such. While not all ofthese people are immature many could be seen as such. There are also early teens who have been thrown into life much earlier than they should have been and they could be considered mature.

As for kids playing this game...it isnt the developers or the retailers responsibility to keep kids off this game. There is no door with a bouncer keeping them out if they are under the age restriction. The entirety of the fault for this issue lies on the parents. They are completely failing to do thier job. My 13 year old has been no where near any gta game or any other mature game and i intend to keep it that way. When they get to the right age for proper mental processing of the content they can decide for themselves.
