I suspect half of all COD players are under 18 yrs of age.

Its a fact. Couple days ago a kid from my street (7 years old) walked up to me saying he bought Blops 2 and that it was awesome and all that LOL.

Saw a lady in the store the other day with her son who was about 8 or 9. She was buying him Blops2 for Xbox.

I saw a similar thing the other day in EB Games. A mother asked the store assistant what game he'd suggest for a 9 year old boy for Christmas. He said Black Ops 2 because "all the kids are playing it". Nevermind the fact that it clearly had an M15+ rating on the box and the posters all around the store, and there was a TV nearby playing gameplay footage with lots of shooting. She still ended up buying it. Didn't even ask what the game was about.

You'd of thought he would of pushed to sell her a Wii U. What an unethical douche.

Thing is though it's not fair on the adults because we get are asses kicked by 10 year old's with quicker reflexes >_<

Hell I'm thinking how even if I get into the top 3 how I've kicked all these teens n weens butt lol YESSSSS!!

Lol yeah I beat a bunch of kids once and they were all whining down their headsets, needless to say I felt pretty good about myself! That'll teach the little s**ts!

So? The M-Rating only affects who can buy the game, not who can play it. It's up to the parents if they want to put parental controls on the console, most don't because there's no reason to.

That's impossible. It's illegal to sell an M-rated title to a 7-year old. He was lying.

Whats the point of even talking about this now...after so many call of duty games seriously? nothings ever going to change since i'm pretty sure a large portion of CoD sales are from parents buying for their underage kids. If they were to all of a sudden "disappear" you would see a huge drop in sales and Activision won't have any of it!

Whipping your arse probably

This one time I caught my nephew age 11 losing his rational mind on that game. He told someone online. That he just finish waxing his mother was and that it's the last time it will happen because she's putting on to much weight. CHECK THIS OUT! That was the only clean part of the conversation. Never the less he almost went into shock. When he realize that I was standing behind him.

Probably trying to have fun. A bit like I and probably most gamers did when they played games with an older certificate when they were young.

And I've only killed 3 people.
