Simple thing for me, i have my own children that i can talk too, I play this game to escape the childish rantings and behavior of kids.. At least that is what i hoped since it is rated 18.. but i guess that some parents really don't care what is age appropriate for there kids..
Most of the time i play with friends anyways so party chat it is, but on those times i'm playing alone it is well annoying hearing those little squeeky (me nuts havn't dropped yet) voices.... Sod off will ya and play Lego batman or something...
This is the thing. I don't understand how parents let their kids on this game. If I had any little kids I wouldn't even let them watch me play it. I grew up a slightly disturbed and demented f*ck, I wouldn't wish this on any of my offspring either. I doubt violent games are the cause of my problem, but I wouldn't want to take chances either.
Kids are a plague on this game, they are very dumb and impossible to enjoy the game with. You are a good parent for not letting your children play. Why? Because nobody wants to play GTA:O with your kids, this makes you a good parent imo. Well done. (Not sarcasm).
I wish more parents were like you and told their kids no and maybe even laid the smack down on them when they answer back 'WHYYYYY? MY FRIENDS HAVE IT' *slap2faec* 'Shut the f*ck up, fool.' That's parenting.
I make you right, i often wonder about the kids that are playing and how old are there parents, probably not far of being children themselfs..
Two things for me..
1) It's rated 18, like drinking in england. I wouldn't take my 12 year old out for a night on the piss.
I wouldn't take my 12 year old to the red light district or a strip club.
I wouldn't take my 12 year old round me mates for a evening on the bong..
I wouldn't let my 12 year old, swear or be sworn at by others.. Which even if you mute all the voice chat, doesn't stop people sending you a pm telling you to "Go F@~k your mothers c#$t" just because you beaten them in a race..
Do i want my child subject to that ?? Simple.. No, Why ?, because I love them, and it's my job to look after them, protect them from that.
2) I don't really don't want to play with Children, in other games maybe, but in this game it just doesn't feel right.. Like giving a joint to a 13 year old.. He parents might let him smoke it, but i don't wanna be apart of that or sit there sharing one with him..
It's a game that is intended for adults and that's who should be playing it..
Shame on those parent that think it's ok. What the hell are you teaching your children ??
