Video games age ratings to high.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What do you guys think about the age ratings of games now a days are they to high or do you think that the age ratings should be lower.

I personally think that BF4 shouldn't be rated a 18 for the amount of gore in the games.

They are just a rating not a rule, no one really abides to them. 

Though I'm not endorsing kids to play all 18+ rated games out there, when a kid is allowed a game is up to the parents really.

So yeah I'm fine with the rating.

I don't believe in the whole video game make you violent thing. Played gta 5 for a year and if anything i have become less violent from my parents due to the fact i have somewhere to put my anger.

I think they're too high. I play GTA and I'm 14, and I understand everything sexual, swearing etc.

 

By about 12 you learn what's right and wrong sex, language and violence wise anyways.

The rating is more of a reccomendation. It warns you and your parents if there is any content that they might find unsuitable for children.

I think they are perfectly fine the way they are. (They have been this way for years now with few to none problems at all)

I dont see why BF4 is rated an 18 all though I can understand why GTA V is, strip club.

bf4 should be rated T

Agreed. This is a quote from pegis website. "

The content of this game is suitable for persons aged 18 years and over only.

It contains: Extreme violence - Violence towards defenceless people - Strong language

This game allows the player to interact with other players ONLINE"

 
The only really bad thing there is violence towards defenceless people and that's only in campaign.

I can understand that argument. But at age 14, even though you understand everything, your brain is still growing. So, it may effect you in ways that you won't even notice.

As techswede said, the ratings are more of a recommendation for the parents. I see nothing wrong with them.

 

I wouldn't want a 10 year old playing GTA V though. It just doesn't seem appropriate to me given that there is so much mature content in the game.

there is that likly chance that your brain goes crazy and you adapt to thinking killing random civilians is ok, ending up to be in the news for killing innocent people

I think the sex in GTA V is the only bad thing in GTA V that people under at least 16 shouldn't be seeing.

Yet if we just look at the news about half the stuff is about the wars going on in the world today.

There's a lot more than that. Senseless murder, rebellious actions towards those in charge, domestic violence, torture, drug use, sexual themes.. Etc, the game is pretty bad.

Haha Mad Max Payne. Pick one Mad Max, or Max Payne xD

 

OP: I don't think the ratings are wrong. I mean most games you can buy regardless of age. They're mainly there to let people know what to expect in the game and don't really stop people from buying them.

To be fair most kids have watched porn by the time they're even capable of understanding anything in GTA.

 

There's a lot more than that. Senseless murder, rebellious actions towards those in charge, domestic violence, torture, drug use, sexual themes.. Etc, the game is pretty bad.

But, the majority of those things things are optional.
