Should there be an age restriction to video games?

  • Google is only a few clicks away...

    If you would've just look this up you'd know video games have rating systems:
    EC- Early Childhood
    E -Everyone
    E 10+- Ages 10 and up
    T- Teen 13 and up
    M- Mature 17 and up
    AO- Adults Only 18 and older

    There's strong policing in the video gaming world. You can't waltz in a store and buy copy of a rated M or AO game if you're under the age limit.

  • There already are.

    There is a reason that age ratings exist. Hell, over here in Britain a kid can't even buy a game that's rated 12, 16 or 18 (PEGI ratings of course) unless they show proof of age OR bring an adult that gives the go-ahead. Of course, it's partially the parent's responsibility to know what their kid's playing on and whether it's appropriate for their age. But a mild form of restriction is definitely helpful.


    I see kids that haven't even left primary school (British elementary, basically) playing GTA, and guess what? They're the most irate and violent kids I've seen. Young, impressionable children really shouldn't be playing uber-violent games. Leave the violent for when they shift into edgy teenager mode and need something to blow off steam on.

  • There should be an age restriction to video games!

    Some games are to intense for little kids. Some kids break the rules though, I know a 7 year old who plays Call of Duty WW2! He probably couldn't care less about the big black M for mature in the corner of the case. We need to get more serious about age restrictions!
