Pretty interesting and encouraging stuff.
Thank goodness they're being taken into account more often.
Let me say it first:
It's about F'ing time!
Interesting. However, I think it all comes down to the kid in question. Some kids might be able to handle a bloodier, more violent game earlier than others. Personally, my parents are quite strict about these kinds of things. I only own one game that carries an "M" rating " (the rest are "T" or lower), and I had to beg and plead and let them watch me play to make sure it wasn't too bloody for me. Personally, blood, gore, violence, etc. etc. doesn't bother me. I'd like to think that I have the mental faculties to figure out that a game is indeed fictional. But I digress. Maybe kids might stop being complete *insert expletive of choice* since they aren't playing games that aren't meant for them to play.
Yeah, I can handle bloodier stuff, but I know when it's too much to turn it off. I've never owned an M-rated game (but I want to try RE4) but I've played them occasionally. I can't tell you how many 2nd to 4th graders I know at my school who always play M-games.
I've played M-rated games (or should i say demos) ever since i was 3!!!
Little Kids + M rated SHOOTAN = Violent, Swearing little kids.
I know some M-Rated games are less worse than others, like Halo vs. GTA, but they do have esrb ratings for a reason.
I was just in Target yesterday and I heard a mom say, "I don't know, that one is rated "T" for teen." The kid looked to be about 8. I'm glad to see parents being responsible.
