Obviously since Warlight is rated XXX, the opinions here are gonna be a bit biased.

If a parent thinks their child is ready for what ever game it is they should be able to buy it for their child. Whether it's a game that's selling point is boob physics, playing a thug in a military uniform in the middle east, or a thug in a hoodie shouldn't matter. If the parent says yes then it should be yes (unless local laws strictly prohibit it)

a agree that it is up to the parent.
also if you feel a game (like HALO) is not bad enough to be M then it is fine

No. Any child found playing a rated M game should be executed by hanging. I will begin enforcing this self-decreed law.

Wasting Law Enforcement on Games is ridiculous.

I think it depends on the game and the kid. I've met 10 year olds that make you feel like you're talking to another adult. It should be the parent's decision but I do think that some kids can handle it.

I played my dad's PS2 Medal of Honor games (they were actually good back then, although Halo 2 is better) at the age of seven (used to sneak out of bed to watch him play and occasionally get a turn) and I don't kill people for fun or anything.

It depends on the specific content and the age. I think most teenagers can handle anything you might see in a Rated M game. However, it's definitely for the best to not have Kindergartners playing GTA or DOOM. (Assuming they could even figure out how to effectively play those games.)

Actually, kindergardeners can figure out hot to play GTA!

My sis let my nephew play GTA when he was 4. My cousin did the same.

There both sociopaths.

In all seriousness I got an old PS2 a couple of months ago with GTA San Andreas. The guy had around 100M so he had completed everything... I just ran around getting shot for no reason.

I'm saying indirectly that I am not scarred permanently, despite playing an R game at 15. Currently my xbox has 3 MA games on it (and 3 G racing games :) )

Kids should be allowed to play whatever they want so long as their parents allow it. Simple as that. First the government will want to regulate what games your kid can play and then they start considering 26 year olds kids (ACA) and then a lot of our first amendment rights go out the window.

Im not a conspiracy theorist. I'm just speculating so take it with a grain of salt.

As long as there's no nudity, it's a game that's good to go for every age. Cuss words? Just don't let the fairy kids touch it. Drugs etc? Let the parents decide. The violence/blood etc. Is only hurting people with epilepsy. Besides, kids these days don't have batman, walker , TX Ranger, robocop and transformers. They need some sort of outlet.

Growing up, I'd play a robotech spinoff game on Playstation. It was the balls, it had everything from health bars that felt useful and cartoonish, badass machine gun robots, badass realistic jets that can fly in space, robot aliens, tall aliens, robot aliens that are distinguishable from other robot aliens so that you know they're awesome bosses, customizable robot suit that affects the gameplay, MLG half jet-robot battle mode, a very interesting plot, a love interest, half - Anime plot half - American badassery , cool robots that help you on the ground, other robot jets like yours, cool large bases for robots, real life helicopters you have to escort because they suck and you're awesome, betrayal by ground robots! An interesting 3-D combat system, graphics that still hold up today, and ... that's actually kind of it. Fuck yeah, take that innocent childhood, and unleash your inner Top Gun - Transformers fantasies!

Oh, and i was playing that years 4 - 10 of my life. It was interesting because my dad couldn't beat certain levels so he had friends come over and do so. I was scared shitless when i accidentally erased a save and he yelled at me. Yeah, that's about when i lost my father figure.

What makes nudity worse than blood/gore? Personally I think gore should be ranked highest on the mature scale. Nudity is quite harmless in comparison.

I'm not saying nudity isn't a mature thing. However, it's not on the same level as other things featured in most rated M games.

I think both are on a rather mature level. Usually nudity in games is portrayed in a very sexual manner which is honestly not the best outlet for kids. Same with gore and blood. Some things kids shouldn't really be exposed to until later in life. But what kids are exposed to is up to the parents. Ive met little kids, 10, 11, who play games like Fallout and Skyrim. Skyrim is a little bit more mild as compared to Fallout (you see people exloding). It just all comes down to parenting. Kids are left to stew. Its kinda saddening actually. Parents should be more loving and less dependent on tvs and games to babysit their children.

Skyrim (and E. Scro in gen.) is very mild compared to Fallout.

Fallout, meanwhile, has a stripper character in every game I've played. Especially notable in new Vegas, what with Gamorrah (not that i'm against it or don't like it. But, seriously, you can untz untz in the game. ). That, and Skyrim holds more purchasing power than just about any other entertainment product. $60 for 2000+ Hours of content. Parents love hearing that. Good combo to keep the kidd-o's kidd-o's.

Also, dragons. Dragons. Mr. President, dragons. Dragons that spew fire and ice. Dragons that you can kill. Dragons that you can ride. Dragons. That is all.

I got rid of Skyrim..(my PS3 is a 40GB model, which means it can run GT6 and virtually nothing else). So in conclusion, the general opinion seems to be that it should be the parents choice. Although I don't think that some parents are qualified to make that choice.

That game does seem rather tame until you find yourself walking in to the Elder Scrolls version of Hell itself.

Yes, but oblivion wasn't rated M for that.

It was rated M for a COMPUTER MOD that made all female character nude above the waists...
