Krymson Tyde: ferretman: My nephew told me his friends have the game...he's only 12. GTA V is definitely not a children's game...from language, drug use, hooker experience and titty bar groping..and parent that lets their child play this should get smacked up-side the head.

I have GTA IV. My 5 year old daughter loves driving and walking around town, but that's all she does.

Yeah, when YOU'RE there. I was wondering why someone named "LilPrincess2007" was at the top of the leader board for most time with 6 stars.

kryptin420: Im 32 and my parents let me watch any r rated movies i wanted. I was addicted to the friday the 13th and nightmare on elm street movies when i was 7. I Had Wolfenstein 3d and doom when they first came out when i was around 11 and played the first Gta when i was 14. According to the mediA i should have owned a bunch of guns and shot up some place by now. I can't figure out why my compulsion for murder never materialized. The media would never lie.

Perhaps your parents should have taken away your console until after you had finished your English homework.

Like any good, responsible parent, I don't play GTAV with my kids around.

Like any good, responsible GTA player, getting a blowjob and beating the hooker to death to get the money back was done almost immediately.

Of course, half of them also received handguns as baby shower presents along with silver spoon sets and piggy banks.

The First Law of American Parenting: What Baby wants, Baby gets.
The Second Law: Love me, love my child.
The Third Law: Everyone must find my child as fascinating as I do.

I know better than to get GTA5 for my 11 year old, but we're still Bad Parents - he's been playing Halo, Skyrim, and Call of Duty for the last two years.

At least when he shoots up a school in five years he'll be well-trained....

Mike_LowELL: I wonder how you would explain to this kid that he is now a "meme" on the "internet".

From a good distance..

rpm: phimuskapsi: God I hate this, I hate it more than anything. The most common response when I ask if they know it's Mature "If I don't buy it he'll just play it somewhere else", or the cringiest "If I don't he/she won't be popular."

I wasn't allowed to play Doom until 13.

/ Fark, I guess that means I'm getting old.
// Get off my lawn

I wasn't allowed to play Doom until grad school. Of course, it didn't come out until then.

You were saying something about a lawn?

What's Doom? Is it available for my Atari?

A friend of mine at work asked me if I thought it would be okay if his 8 year old son played GTAV. I told him "Look, I played GTA3 when I was something like 13 or 14, but for all it's violence, the game really wasn't THAT bad. GTAV should NOT be played by kids. It's really not appropriate for them. I would highly discourage letting your son play this." He asked why. I said "Last night I picked up a hooker, had sex with her, stabbed her in the neck, then set her corpse on fire. That sound like a kid's game to you?"

I was in Gamestop at the weekend with my eight year old and asked the teenagers behind the counter if they had anything with similar gameplay, chasing and shooting and so on, but without the "adult" themes. They looked at me like I was... completely normal, actually, and gave me some good suggestions.

/As an aside, given the way most of these games treat violence and drugs, and depict women as basically transporters for cleavage, they really should be rated I for Immature.

ferretman: Picking up a 'hooker' is a little more interesting now...have you searched the internet for porn in GTA V?

Well, looks like I got something to do after work!
