Movies and tv shows can have all sort of violence. At least here in italy. Sometimes violences I never thought of!

Same question then: have you completed a playthrough? In general ( i.e. Carjacking, shootouts, heists, even cold purder) the game is average, indeed nearly tame. But it's got a few specific scenes (see above) that are really disturbing.

And actually, what shocks me more, is how two adults haven't given a second's thought to answer this very question for a kid under their care. Especially when I remember refusing God of War 2 to my 12 y old brother because I wasn't certain what exactly warranted its rating and didn't want to take a risk.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Maybe because they're responsible adults who feel their child is smart enough to distinguish fantasy from reality? Holy shit what a concept right? People actually raising their children!

I forgot you know them better than I do - how dumb of me :roll: Neither of them are very aware of gaming in general and neither were they aware exactly what the game entailed until I gave them the Cliff's note.

Lay off the snark, or at least argument with the game in mind, not generalistic BS. I'm not here to start a fight either against you guys or the "mature" game industry - I actually have my own copy of the game, and I'd root for it to anyone mature enough to handle it.

Short version: I'm chocked that some adults don't stop to even think for a second when giving children sensitive material. It' the lack of forethought that stuns me more than the actual purchase.

Without talking about GTA specifically but more about games in general, a large majority of the adults not only have no clue about what happens in gameplay and scenes, but also refuse to even learn the gaming world and just deem those games as "child play" without knowing what they really are.
They probably just imagine all games to be like pokemon.

and that is why we have the rating systems, which are being ignored by those that they are supposed to help the most

Well ask yourself, how many underage people play even WoW? Do people give a fuck about the fact that the terms you accept on login require you to be 18+?

They actually require you to have the permission of a responsible adult if you are under 18, IIRC. And that is because you can't be liable for breach of contract if you are under 18. The actual game is rated from 12/13 (depending on system used).

Yet there's loads of actual kids that play it (not talking about behaviour but about actual age, several guildies of mine dont mind at all letting their <10 kids play)

Remember having one of those in the guild way back when - a 10y old girl, daughter of two guildies.
That's something I'm more at ease with - they know what she's going into, and made a conscious choice in full knowledge.

These aren't the people that will blame "the intertubes" when something goes wrong.

Beating the dead horse, but it reminds me a lot how some parents just shrug their shoulders and blame the schools, or the other children when their kids go wrong, when they haven't lifted a finger to do something about it.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

This part I understand fully. And to answer the other question, no I ahven't played GTAV (I think the last I played was 3) - it sjust not my kind of game.

But yeah, I totally get the issue with people not knowing what they are giving ignoring ratings.
(My example is me, being quite aware of D3 and actually initially refusing it, before deciding otherwise after a ponder).

It feels like it's going to be one of those weeks. My wife's found a (admittedly bargain-bin priced) 250 EUR doll. Sadly, our post-holydays finances don't permit us those expenses until the next month at best, which is way too late.

So she's gone in full-on shut-in mode that I shouldn't give her any kind of hope, and that she'll never get anything nice, which is halfway between "this is all your fault" and "Woe me".

She'll come around in a few days/week, but I feel like hugging the buddha on my desk for serenity.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Heals form tanks shouldn't produce threat. Oh, using Seal of Insight? Can't do that because shit'll run to you before the other tank can pick them up. Oh, want to use Light's Hammer to help heal the AoE damage? Can't do that all the spawning adds run right to you. It feels like I can't use half my abilities when they would best be used in certain fights because I am fighting to not over threat during add spawn points.
