This article is a opinion piece about the blinded view towards gamers.
41 here! Been playing since the 2600 and C-64, which doesn't mean shit. But love playing my games. But I do agree with the author that it is parents responsibility to know what their kids are playing. I bet my oldest son hates that I'm a gamer and he can't get on those cool games...............
As a 24 year old I feel like I don't have to justify my game playing. Maybe because it's more common nowadays. Still, there are some poeple ( my mom )who think videogames are for kids but, she won't keep me from my favorite hobby.
be a good boy and do as your mommy says
i am 34 and as a dad-to-be and a gamer(btw my woman is 29 and a gamer as well), i will definitely control what kind of games my son is playing.some people still say to me that games are for kids but i know that is because they have no idea whatsoever about gaming industry.
I Dont Have A Child But If I Did Then I Would Control What The Child Watches, Does And Says Instead Of Blaming It On The Game Developers. Some Parents Were Not Meant to Have kids
44 here, been gaming since pong came out. My wife and all my kids are gamers too. Oh and I've just become a Grandad.. =) Edit: Thanks Matpan
29 here, gaming steady since the 8 bit era. Mortal Kombat dind´t turn me into a serial killer... nor did I tried any california games stunts (at least w/o a helmet) A well educated kid, guidance and awareness of what he watches / plays and good communication should sufice to avoid any major issues. I never thought restricting game content could be a solutions, kids will find violence at the turn of the corner, or the switch of a channel... Devs are not to be held responsible, they put out a product that is rated... if it gets to the hands of an underaged, then it was most probably due to an irresponsible adult. BTW: Congrats digger for the grandson :) may he be a gamer and happy owner of a 1080 and a PS5 :P have a bubble and a nice day! :)
