    I do not understand how any parent thinks that GTA is ok for a growing mind.
    I think we are lucky in that most kids at our school are 'country kids' even if they now live in town. None are interested in that, they much prefer beach cricket or footy in the park. Can't say the same for neighbourhood kids though, but there is a reason I refuse to let them come in, they are rude, nasty and disrespectful to me and dd.

    Yep I allow my daughter to play violent video games. She loves killing zombies and monsters on the Xbox. She loves the ones were you creep around the house with your gun and suddenly 3 zombies will come round a corner and you have to shoot them or they eat you.
    We don't allow games that kill people or animals...or anything with adult themes such as GTA.

    I dunno. Upper cutting someone's head off so it flies in the air and lands in a pit of spikes with blood flying out is pretty graphic.

    I think it depends on A the game and B child's age
    I mean most of us would have played duck hunt yes? God I remember playing that is primary school but it's just duck hut it has nothing on the games DH and I play.
    I won't say down right no but no until he knows and understands its just a game and not the way to act IRL

    No, and no matter what age they are. There are plenty of other games they could be playing that doesn't involve violence.

    Nope. Plain and simple children shouldnt be exposed to such graphic images at a young age.

    DD has watch DP play Battlefield a few times and when he 'dies' she said that's ok you get a new man. So I've had to explain to her that is a video game and it's not real. In real life when we die we're gone forever. Then I used a dog that passed away the past yr as an example. She was sad but she understood. And I 'think' she gets the difference between her dads game and real life.

    My DD only plays games that I let her play eg. puzzle games on my phone or she'll go on the Nick jr. website and play dora, wubbzy or other games. All G rated and perfectly harmless educational and fun for her.

    Yeah, games do nto affect children at all..
    and this says it so well...

    Video games don't ruin kids. If Pac-Man ruined us as kids, we would all be running around in darkened rooms, eating "magic" pills and listening to repetitive electronic music. Hey, wait. That is true!
