My little nephew is nine years old. He’s tired of playing Lego Start wars and Dirt Wheels type games. He was over a friends house the other day and played Halo II, and loved it. I was wondering in your vast opinion O’Teeming Millions what you would deem appropriate for what age?
I’m certainly not going to buy him Splinter Cell or Ghost Recon because I’d like the lad to be able to get at least some sleep as a youngster, but with the age of internet being hard wired into children’s biological USB port [their Brains] and with the amount of advertizing these kids see at such a young age, it is difficult to know when they are ready for a first person shooter and when they are not.
I do not want to contribute to the delinquency of a minor by buying him a MA rated game, but I know there are games out there that are much more fun than Lego Star wars without the blood thirsty voracious charactors of a Mafia type genre.
What say you?
