    Our sons watch DH play COD and a couple of other violent games games but not the really gorry ones. We let our kids play games like castle crashes and a few other fighting games, but none that are really graphic - blood etc maybe once a fortnight. DS1 plays pokemon and nintendogs.

    All are loving, caring kids.
    I think it would have an implact if the kids played GTA or gears of war for 18hrs a day. Kids have to learn what is real and what is not.

    I too grew up playing mortal kombat and I have never been in a fight nor am I a violent person.

    Yeah but if someone tries to fight us IRL, we can always use Sonya Blade handstand-snap-guys-neck move

    No.

    My kids are not allowed to play with toy guns again.

    So far, this has not come up with my kids. But when they do get to the age where they are playing with gaming consoles they can play ones that are like soccer or car racing or something else.

    The games we played growing up were nowhere near as graphic as the ones around now. There's a big difference between what we had in the 80s and what we see today.

The 5 year old however has seen the packet and recently when his dad went into play a game with our eldest the 5 year old did tell me that dad was playing naughty games
    I don't think it is at all appropriate or healthy for young children to be exposed to those 15+ games and many of the PG games are unsuitable for children under school age and sometimes older. There is a relly good site that reviews games and movies and tells you what's in them and for what age they're recommended.
    http://www.commonsensemedia.org/

    Some of their ratings are probably a bit over cautious but they are a good guide to let you know when to proceed with caution. I actually don't like much screen time at all for young children but that's another issue.
    Well said but what do you mean exactly by you don't like screen time for your children ?

    answering in advance- no! i hated it that xp played cod and gears of war. i find those games disturbing and it's one of the things that drove me to break up with her. i'm certainly not letting my kids near that stuff.
    i also don't own any kind of gaming console, and don't intend to, and think that there are lots of things you can get kids for birthdays and christmases before you turn to imo unnecessary, expensive electronic devices.
