This is why we can't have nice things. See the rating on the box? Pretty sure nine year old's aren't supposed to be playing it. Cancer or not.

DarkBlood2345d ago

what in the world does that have to do with why we cant have nice things?

anyways regardless of the rating im pretty sure the kid was mature enough out of the bunch otherwise they might of have to fix the wish

Well if we're going to make exceptions for the system, then why even have it? The ESRB is pointless if it's not going to be enforced, just there as recommendations.

ZombieAssassin2344d ago


Like you said the ESRB is just recommendations and there is no law saying you have to be that age to play it (to buy it yes but not to play) so their is no enforcing it.

admiralvic2344d ago

If hes getting a wish, then he more of less has accepted his own mortality in a sense. He is more than likely mature enough to handle the game.

KillerPwned2344d ago

If you had a child with Cancer you would be willing to give he/she anything in the world to make them happy with the time they have.

I remember playing Mortal Kombat with my friends when we were 9. Believe it or not, it didn't turn us into psycho killers.

BitbyDeath2344d ago

I don't think anyone really expects it too.
Rating systems are just in place to adhere to the uptight people who find these things offensive.

People who continually make up these types of rules are actually doing a lot more harm than good but nobody has the balls to stand up to them because they are large in number.

GraveLord2344d ago

With his parents permission he is allowed to play whatever he wants. Cancer or no cancer.

KaBaW2344d ago

Yeah, iduno why people don't understand this. It's really not complicated.
The ESRB is just to prevent people who are younger from purchasing it.

KaBaW2344d ago

The ESRB is NOT to decide who can play, but who can 'purchase' the game ...

KillerPwned2344d ago (Edited 2344d ago )

No matter what the wish, good for the kid its what makes him happy screw what anyone else thinks.

bwazy2344d ago

I know I'd probably think the same at my age, but goddamn why don't they take that kid on a bloody world tour, see the sights that (and mostly) no one will ever see.
