About Kids Playing This Game

For all the talk surrounding kids playing this game, what about legal adults who still act like kids?

I've personally never had a problem with mature teenagers playing gta, I just wish I grew up with gta 5, and not gta 1 and 2.

Believe it or not the first time I played gta was gta 3 when I was 4 and my dad brought it home with a ps2 as soon as it came out, I've played every gta since and everyone before it except gta advance :p

Hello guys, I don't really see what's all the child discrimination is about, but I've been heavily insulted for being underaged, and I really think games should not be rated on age, it should be rated on maturity. I am almost 13, but I'm mentally mature enough to play and understand this game. The kids you hear screaming "ni**er" and other popular insults that sound like they are 7 are obviously not mature and should not be playing this game. Hope this topic doesn't get deleted but what do you guys think about kids on this game?

If you're under 21 you should not be playing this game.. and your parents should be ashamed for buying such a game for you if you're under 15... period. But parents these days are mostly worthless anyway, from what I can tell... it is now Trevor's world...

I bought it myself and both my brothers (22 and 24 - I'm 16) have played a game under the age limit and no doubt you have, no one complains if it's beer but nooooo delicate pixels are delicate

You need to enjoy it. It's pretty good.

no one complains if it's beer but nooooo delicate pixels are delicate

 

The only countries that don't complain about beer are developing countries...and quite frankly, those don't give a damn what the game has, period.

Hardcore porn & they still wouldn't care.

To be honest, kids in GTA online can be a massive pain, but they can also not be. It really depends on them. Its like kids on CoD for example. Some kids that play CoD are a massive pain, but some are not. It depends on how mature they are, and how they handle the content. If it doesnt effect them in any physical, behavioural or mental way, I say let them play

There's nothing wrong with teenagers playing this game but 12 year olds, 10 year olds and younger are a problem because they yell into their mics.

I really think games should not be rated on age, it should be rated on maturity.

Since you have OBVIOUSLY thought this out completely, ill ask you these two questions:

 

1. How would your new ratings system work? What would be printed on the game packages?

 

2. How do you suggest game store employees test the maturity of all the kiddies that would try to buy this game?

r* should give us a way to report suspected tweens, and should call local social services if their investigation leads them to reasonably believe that a parent is letting their < 16 y.o. play this game.

I just finished playing the worst Free-roam session of my life this is how it went

 

1: wake up put on some fancy new duds

2: take a shot of whiskey

3: take a bong toke

4: watch some morning cartoons

5: cartoons are interrupted by some little annoying squeaker sounds like hes 12 if that

6: told him to shut up im trying to watch cartoons

7: he starts trolling me in a gangsta voice calling me the N word doping mom jokes and all that

8: i decided enough was enough time to go kill him

9: walk into garage to find that little piece of **** camping in the corner of my garage

10: rage quit :facedesk:

 

 

 

And thus the reason free roam blows, way to many glitches/trolls.

I like many ran into very immature adults.Maturity is a type of behavior not an age group.If someone blames an inanimate object for them doing something illegal that means they are insane or just f*cking stupid.I swear on a casual basis.Most nut jobs are nut jobs before they picked up the game.Look up maturity in a dictionary.How many adults go around saying "Get pwnded,noob".That's right 95 percent.If anything the world is full of dumb jackasses of all ages,shapes,& sizes.Has anyone watched some of those YouTube videos of ADULTS doing completely childish things.

wtf i know right totally ruined my morning cartoons and yes it doesn't matter what age you are cartoons are acceptable, especially south park. Also he was trolling people in a gangster voice before i even told him to shut up, seems like every 12 yr old white kid needs to act like a black gangster on gta 5 even the ones that clearly aren't lol :lol:

 

 

didn't even rage quit it was more like a laugh quit, once he ran out of his some what funny mom jokes he just kept saying the n word over and over again that's when it lost all funniness and when i got bored and left.

I dont agree with age restresticion, my brother gave me a Battlefield heroes acc when i was 7 years, and i loved it(even payed for money in-game ).The only thing that is diffrent about me now because i played age restricted games is that i now know how to code. Lua and some C++, + i know how to write english. I am now 12 and have moved on to more mature games like gta V.

 

 

 

Edit: Battlefield heroes is a carton-ished shooter.

It really depends on whether you can differentiate the game from real life, most teens already have a firm grasp at this concept.

But on the other hand the 7 and 8 year old that play this game shouldn't because they will probably end up copying what they see, whether its the bad language or the bad actions.Reason why is because they still copy what they see on tv and whatnot, they still haven't found themselves yet so they are easily influenced by what they see around them.

I like how it seems everyone on the GTA Forums has kids or a girlfriend.

If you do have those two things, why the hell are you wasting your time posting on a video game forum LoL

At least I wouldn't, but I have neither

Are we talking GTA Online or SP? Because SP, I will not let my daughter (12 y/o) go near it. I played it all the way through and there some pretty warped sh*t going on. Online? Not so much aside from the usual a-holes that propagate the online gaming world. Those she can handle because of the rules I have in place (private lobby and friends only).

 

Personally, I do not want to play with kids because my language can get a little salty and I don't feel like having to censor myself. It's just a personal comfort level thing; nothing against kids in general. YMMV.

This. 100% this.

 

Generally speaking, I would not be happy with the thought of kids watching Trevor take someone from behind before stamping on someone else's head until they die. And that's before we get to the torture scene...

my son is 13, when he's in a private lobby with his friends they act like kids, hollaring and screaming, etc...

He is also in my crew and knows to mature it up when playing with other crew members. Now on the other hand I let one of his friends join the crew and eventually exiled him for acting a douche.

 

Now when my boy was younger say 3 or 4ish, I played GTA. We would be out driving the town and he would see a Taxi, "daddy get the bat". He used to watch me and my brother take the baseball bat to cabbies in the game. Momma didn't like that.. oops

 

he knows the difference reality and virtual reality.

The world is fukked with this general mindset from mature kids and supposed adults. If the above pages of comments are the case RL world and game world are both fekked. Very few sensible heads in this forum. Last I checked 18 meant 18 and adult viewing meant exactly that. No-one is prepared to wait for any pleasures anymore. That kid Violet from charlie and the chocolate factory springs to mind. I want it NOW!!!

Got nothing against you playing this game. It's the f*cktards that're screaming into the mic and are impatient and agressive as f*ck that bother most of us! :p

Sorry OP, it has nothing to do with maturity. Yes, there are adults, given their attitude, behavior, and ignorance, who shouldn't be playing it either. You should not be playing it BECAUSE you are too young. Ratings are not age discrimination. Ratings exist because (parents are often stupid and need guidelines) the content is INAPPROPRIATE for you. There is nothing in your life experience or current exposure to violence etc. that justifies continued exposure to exceptionally cynical games like GTA or the abundance of foul-mouthed idiots who play it.

 

Why you may be getting a negative reaction from adults:

 

1. We do not enjoy having to censor ourselves while playing a video game made for adults. (you're trespassing on our adult time to blow off steam)

2. It's disturbing listening to a 7 (or 13) year old say "f--k" every 0.3 seconds. (we wonder where your parents are and wtf is wrong with them)

3. We get angry at society in general, and specifically with your parents, for allowing you to play it. (increased stress)

 

Please go play something age-appropriate.

I started playing San Andreas when I was 12, but I didn't go around raping my mom or having sex with pimps or cussing at random people. Kids nowadays though.......
