"wouldn't have boughten"? o_0

The reason why you said "boughten" is also the reason why you purchased Black Ops...

"I wish I wouldn't have boughten Black Ops."

Easily the post of the day. Thats what this site needs, a post of the day side bar. TheLastGuardian deserves a lot more bubbles.

alot of good games are on that list lol

Quagmire2552d ago

Ironic, how many of the games listed on the do not buy list, ends up being the majority of games REAL gamers want!

Sitris2552d ago

Black ops isn't that bad Jees, I have no lag when I play, anyway this holiday season has been pretty slow all round. Next year however, will be amazing for games.

darren_poolies2552d ago

People shouldn't need lists like this, that what the age ratings are for.

ECM0NEY2552d ago

Nobody on this site for sure... I dont think uniformed parents come to N4G to see what games they should get for their kids.

EditorAtGNG2552d ago

Actually, there's the rating on the game cover itself:
"M" - mature, "T" - teen, etc. It isn't that hard now is it?

Anon19742552d ago

The ratings on the games themselves are guidelines, just like this is a guideline. I've watched some movies in the past that had PG-13 ratings but felt more like they should be R. This is simply attempting to give parents more information and another opinion. Parents can't play through all the games their kids want, so a site like this is helpful. I see no harm in it. Parents should be informed on what makes it into the hands of their children.

Something I've never understood is Halo's M rating. Games like Call of Duty, God of war - those contain some violent and disturbing images for children but Halo - Halo's not realistic in any way, shape or form. The violence in the Halo games is just a step above Looney Tune, cartoon violence in my opinion. There's no way Halo should have an M rating - and it's obvious that not many pay attention to Halo's rating when you consider the sheer number of children playing the game online. Anyway, that's one rating that I've always found a head scratcher. For sure I'd let me teens play Halo. The M rating just doesn't seem justified from what I've played.

I glanced over the list and a lot of what I see is completely false. I don't remember seeing a single second of nudity in RDR.

I feel sorry for the kids of the parents that blindly follow this without question.

jessupj2552d ago

I saw sex, but no nudity what so ever. There's a difference.
