Because the bad publicity would be more than even R* could endure.

This has been discussed many times before but I suppose we can go through it again.

 

Moving to GTA Series Forum though as this isn't just a GTA V topic.

Because of sh*t like this
http://www.eurogamer...ws290305clinton
GTA has been called a murder simulator for you-know-what. They've went far as calling it an adult product because of hot coffee.
Now imagine the headlines when GTA has children in it: "MODS LET PLAYERS KILL CHILDREN IN GRAND THEFT AUTO!!!", "GTA PROMOTES CHILD ABUSE", etc etc...

Because the minute they release a GTA game with children in it, 10,000 child murder compilation videos will be uploaded to youtube, the public will cry foul, and R* will have to patch them out of the game or make them unkillable. And god forbid they include a school. There's also the possibility of weirdo modders doing some seriously f*cked up stuff with child npcs. R* knows where the line is, they can include sex, nudity, gratuitous torture, politically incorrect humor, racial slurs, drug use, etc., but anything that could allow the player to harm to children is too far, so they don't include them altogether. 

 

I know some people want to see children included for the sake of immersion and realism, but too many teenage edgelords and man-children want them in just for the sake of killing them, so R* rightfully denies them that indulgence.

They could make them invulnerable to danger like if someone decides to RPG them they just fall on the ground but don't die

The problem doesn't stop with killing them. Rockstar got in a lot of boiling water because of a mod that allowed you to have sex with your adult girlfriends. Imagin... well, don't, but just think of the trouble Rockstar would get themselves into if someone does 'that'.

Let me go OT
Children could like spawn only at trade fairs, schools, areas where guns are not allowed and fight buttons disabled.

I've always had the opinion if you're going to add children they should be treated like any other ped. As in no restrictions to cause potential harm because it doesn't exist with current peds.

I mean in GTA V you can kill cats, dogs, cows etc, but I've never seen a lawsuit from PETA. Then again R* didn't add them just so they could be killed. They were added for immersion and fleshing out the game world which could be easily achieved with children.

It would be nice as very few open world games feature children. GTA games don't encourage the slaying of innocent people (This isn't Hatred or Postal we're talking about here) so as long they don't do something stupid like include them as part of a mission I think it's time to change things up honestly just like adding animals did.

I think Fallout 3 and 4 have children in them. Nothing else springs to mind though.

Jack Thompson - although he's banned from taking Rockstar to court. He tries but can't legally do it now.

Generally bad press - Took Rockstar years to add animals such as dogs, cats, etc and allowing to harm them because of  that very reason so kids is a long time off at best.

Apparently 9/11 but this is probably more of a throwaway excuse from people trying to look at any reason. Apparently they were in GTA III but were removed as a mission from Darko had you blowing up a school bus and you heard them scream as you did it. 

School shootings/university campus shootings - This is a very serious problem and if this was even remotely possible in GTA games, the backlash would probably be worse than Hot Coffee. 

 

There's tons of other reasons.

What's wrong with calling it what it is?

Goddamn it's just a video game! Do you ever call a movie an adult product because of some sex scenes?

Actually he was pretty specific, he said "Children LIKE in AC3" and there's only with kind of children in that game, which is basically a small person. You should go to anger management or something, no need to rage when you're not even right,

Okay, you know how in Bethesda games, all the kids are invincible? How you can't kill them? I think there's a rule or something saying you can't murder children, so i guess Rockstar had the option of either leaving them out entirely or having them be unkillable

There was also something with the first 3D title. It was actually planned way back in gta III where claude was assigned to blow up a school bus full of children from Darkel, a cut character in the beta. Really hasn't been any other gta where R* planned to have children in. Gta 3 was the closest they got with this idea. Then sh*t happened with 9/11 and everything changed with III.

People, Rockstar themselves have said the mission to blow up the school bus with kids is a rumor. Yes, there was a school bus in the Beta, but that doesn't mean it would be involved in any missions. Rockstar may be pretty crazy, but I don't think they're that crazy.

the ironic thing is, if you disable that kid invincibility in Skyrim, the kids actually have their own voiced death sounds, so Beth did actually consider that at some point, which is f*cked up now that I think about it

The lowest age I'd welcome in a GTA is between 15-17 if the game features a high school that's known to have gang/drug activity going on around/in it.

 

Otherwise I have no interest in seeing mothers or fathers walking down the street holding their toddlers hand, or a group of elementary/middle school kids walking around a neighborhood, school campus or riding the bus that any one can blow up, shoot, or stab for sh*ts and giggles.

 

 Couldn't careless about  what the people who whine about GTA has to say but there is a line and I don't think this one should ever be crossed.
