"Children are no strangers to online games, whether they are playing them on Xbox Live or in an MMORPG. ESRB ratings are in place so that parents can make informed decisions for their children and decide whether or not they are allowed to play. Some parents have decided that yes, their 9-year-old is ready to play games such as God of War 3, which has a mature rating. It isn't my business to tell someone what their child can and cannot play. That's their job. But what about children in online games such as World of Warcraft and Halo 3?"
