Re: Am i the only kid whos allowed to play M?

**bleep** am I not the youngest anymore? Smiley Mad

Anywho, I am not allowed to, but I still do at friend's houses. I do think that kids shouldn't play "M" games, as most of them sound stupid with their pre puberty voices and their below average spelling skills, and don't get me started on the maturity of kids.

I played myfirst M game when I was only 7.  My dad could care less on what I played but it was my mom who was strict about it. Needless to say when I turned 10 I got them taken away, but I got them back when I reached High School again.  There are many young kids who still play all M game's lately, shooter games being the majoritiy of it

I've played M rated games as a kid but wasn't allowed to buy them until I was 16. Now I have my own job and money so I can buy whatever.

Like my mother said "Who cares if he plays it, its not like he isn't going to grow up and learn it anyway". If anything, M games prepare you for the real world, and what it really is.

Yup. Slicing hookers up with a katana in broad daylight, and headshotting zombies.

 

 

So preparing.

Does anyone who is a kid have an easy going mom like this?

The first "M" rated game I owned was "Mortal Kombat" for Genesis, when I was 10. And before it got the console release, my Mom would let me and my older brother play the arcade at her work. (They had it in a Deli she worked at.)

 

My brother and I played "violent" video games before they had ratings for them. (if you even really want to call those games "violent.")

She knew they were just video games and made sure we understood that was all they were as well. Before she bought/rented us a game, she would always look over the box, too.

 

So, yes, my Mom was pretty cool with video games.

 

Although, the "M" rated games now look a lot more realistic than the ones in the 90's.

If we had the games today, at 12, my Mom probably wouldn't have let us play them.

Yeah, prepare, I forgot I have to be precise with you people for you to understand anything. I don't mean prepare for YOUR future, I meant to prepare to see what the world is really like. Were going to hear cuss words, were going to see hookers, were going to see gang bangs, and drive by's, and bank robberies, so how is a game going to change any of that? That's what I meant, in case you guys didn't understand the first time.

Nope. Gotcha the first time 'round. Most people play videogames BECAUSE they're not like the real world. And do you even for a second think that gunning down a crowd of people in GTA or whatver game prepared ANYONE for events like the Newton or Aurora shootings? Absolutely not.
