    I may not be a big fan of Rockstar's games, but I have to agree completely.

    They need that stamped on their packaging from now on.

    Even then, I'm sure there'd be people who either wouldn't notice or wouldn't care. Or couldn't read...

    Now if only there was some way to prevent kids from playing them.

    I propose a feature on Xbox Live that bans all voices that are annoyingly high pitched and underage-sounding.

    It'd completely ruin Bungie and would destroy over 50% of their consumer base, but it'd be the lesser of two evils.

    I know someone who is 13 and his parents have been told by a psychologist that he shouldn't play violent games and 80% of his game library is rated M.
    They just don't care.
    To put it in Rockstar's movie analogy though, they let him watch anything on that front, too.
    The Ruins.
    Hostel.
    Saw -all of it.
    Damn idiots -the lot of them.

    So true. If you don't trust your kids with the games don't buy the game for them, I'm 15 and my mum totally trusts me with these games and I'm not going to break into cars or do any of that shit :lol

    I support Rockstar in what they are trying to do. Keep kids from mature games just like kids can't see rated R movies either.

    Yeah, some people just make it too freaking obvious that they are buying the games for the younger people. As noted, some parents just don't care, which they should, because guess what? This is our future generation.

    One of the biggest problems, you see a kid go out and do something GTA styled, steal a car, run people over or shoot someone. They go and blame the games. Know what? if your kid doesn't have the brain capacity to keep reality and video games seperate, don't let the f***ing kid play! Meanwhile, blaming the game, makes it worse for people who actually have the ability to not be a complete f***ing moron, and next thing you know, stores pull a hot game off the shelves.

    Bravo Rockstar, you know wtf is going down, and you have the balls to point it out!
