Children "more aggressive" thanks to video games

I suppose 10 year olds playing an 18 year old game in COD dosn't help either right?

Of course, children shouldn't simply be playing these. I've mentioned before, if I have kids I'll simply knock them back from getting these games they're nowhere near the age of playing if I catch them playing it. Children ARE easily influenced by things.

On a critical note: Censoring adult games because of children playing them is always an annoying outcome of some of this controversy. :x

The stupidest story i ever read (i'll link if i can find it) was one i read a few years ago.

A child, 14, was playing Resident Evil 4, took an epileptic seizure and the parents tried to sue Capcom over the whole incident.

Las Plagas die from flashbangs I guess.

Keep videogames away from epileptic children, enough said.

Srsly thank god i dont own CoD, one of the many reasons i dont is that almost all the time, you will find kids swearing at the mic.
And then the parents go blame the game companies because they cant handle the truth that they are irresponsible.

It's slightly contradictory of me of course to be giving out parents abuse of letting their children play games they shouldn't as i had played and completed Leon's disk on Resi 2 by the time i was 11, i scared myself shitless when i was 10 at Resident Evil, and i think not long after Resi 2 , i had Silent Hill, and that gave me actual nightmares, i played a lot of game's i shouldn't have, and that was wrong.

But grown up now and looking at it from the otherside, i think its wrong kids are playing games that clearly arn't in their age range or suitable.

At least back when i was playing games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil , it wasn't the same regurgitated crap every year like a Battlefield or a COD, it dosn't make it ok, but the circumstances are different.

We all know this is bullshit, though. None of this is old news, or have we all forgotten about Jack Thompson already? I know I haven't.

Video games are the "new thing" people love to rage about, they're like the new kid on the block that nobody understands but they think they're entitled to judge them anyway. It's happened with other forms of entertainment too, such as music and film (and still does).

I don't want kids, but if I ever have them I'd base what they have access to on the basis of their own maturity, not on their age. Age is just a number signifying how long you've been in this world for, it shouldn't be used as a ranking for how mature, responsible or intelligent somebody can be.

If I felt that my children weren't mature enough to play such games then I wouldn't let them. Aside from that, I wouldn't let any child of mine get brainwashed by the shit that is Call of Duty and Battlefield. I might turn out to be a bad parent in every other area but like hell I'll let my own flesh and blood become a mindless thrall to Activision's bullshit (and EA's).

I'm just saddened by the way the children of today are going.

When we were kids, we grew up with Mario, Sonic, Metal Gear, Final Fantasy, notice the trend? Not a single FPS game in there, it isn't the FPS genre that annoys me, it just so happens to be that's the flavour of the moment.

Kids just can't see past Call Of Duty and Battlefield, they will never experience a broader scale of games, thinking outside of FPS (COD/BF) that no games even exist.

Can't agree with you more.

For them COD and BF are the greatest games ever
Im going to tell you guys a review a guy made for Minecraft, it was just..sad ( i dunno the link for the review but ill try to get it)
The guy kept talking trash about Minecraft and saying that the graphics suck.
Not only that, but he said that there no weapons or "golden guns".
So basicly he compared a FPS ( COD) with a Sandbox game(Minecraft)
Srsly..i...i just dont know what to say :tut:

I don't think that's a fair comparison, you could easily say the same with Fifa/Pro Evo and GTA being the only games played by teens in the 2000s.

I was banned from playing the GTA games when they came out when I was young, but I could still play Hitman!
