Waaaaaait, wait, wait, wait, wait. I know it's a feely situation and all that crap, but that kids looks like it's maybe 5-7 years old. We all crack jokes about Halos' fanbase, but this is ridiculous.

I started playing the first halo when I was 5 or 6. Why don't I get a ******* helmet?

It's not just Halo, it's pretty much every shooter these days is swarming with kids but they were swarming with kids when we were kids as well because that's how gaming works. Kids love the **** out of them. It's not just shooters, MMOs, fighting games, RTS. Every game out there probably has a big chunk of it's audience made up of people under the age of 14 and about half of those probably have a big chunk made from kids under the age of 10. It's not a bad thing.

Yeah I grew up with Atari and when I was 6 NES came out and we got it and I was hooked on games. I was never an annoying asshole in games though. Even though we couldn't chat or play with strangers back then. I have known some non annoying kids these days who play although it can be kind of rare but you tend to remember the assholes and forget the normal ones.
User avatar #110 to #92 - snowshark (12/28/2013) [-]
That is the fault of the parents and the fault of the parents is also to do with the conditions of the culture. See, they didn't grow up as gamers, at least the majority of them didn't. That means gaming is an entirely alien concept to them. What is more those kids likely don't have access to the places on the internet like Funnyjunk that will teach them how to be good internet-dwellers and good people in general (4Chan also makes good people but it is sort of a "Figure it out yourself" site that often leaves people struggling whilst FJ punishes faggotry and promotes the good parts of life and is absorbed in nostalgia and respect for the people who deserve it.)

My dad was an arcade kid. He was there and had all the highscores, one of the best players I've ever run into. He's fallen behind the times but I'm pushing 20 and I've still never beaten him on Quake. Because of him I grew up playing games like Heretic (look it up, play it, love it), Quake, and Hexen and from there I went to the Dreamcast and eventually the X-Box and Halo. I grew up marathoning the best games you could get your hands on and my dad kept me under his thumb in terms of not allowing me to get too into games.

So those kids simply have bad parents and the parents are bad because they don't understand the culture their kids are playing in or they don't understand the negative impact it is having on them.

So there's no 'annoying kids' or 'non-annoying kids' there's just 'kids who are healthy gamers' and 'kids who aren't'. We just gotta do our part in making sure as many kids fall onto the better side of that line, which is what FJ does really well and why I spend my time here.

Well I agree that there are people who playgames or do ANY hobby too much. But I meant there are kids who are just assholes no matter what they're doing moreso than strictly on games. Parenting is a huge part of it too but I've known a few with awesome parents who are just dicks for whatever reason and vice versa too so I dunno what the deal is there. Just too many factors I guess.

I like how they didnt sent him an 'M' rated game and sent him toys instead.
Very clever
I would have send him a letter saying he´s not supposed to play that game

thats why im never ever going to work at HU

It's not Illegal for kids to play games of any rating, they just have to do it with the acknowledgement of the parents. In my opinion censorship of any kind is stupid and a game like Halo would never "damage" a kid younger than 17. We don't play the games because we get to virtually massacre people, we do it because it's fun and challenging. I honestly think that if 7 year old's enjoy Halo, they should be allowed to play. Even if they are irritating.

You've never liked a game that wasn't intended for a higher age group?

My parents used to beat my ass for playing them, not encourage me.

Thanks for bringing up the memories, BTW.
User avatar #36 to #35 - poetsofthefall (12/28/2013) [-]
But, you liked them right?
#38 to #36 - hudge (12/28/2013) [-]
How are you not understanding me?

I loved them. I used to play them whenever I could. My parents did not, however, encourage me to play even SLIGHTLY violent games, and punished me severely for it.

This kid's got both his parents standing around clapping for him while he plays a game where you blow **** the **** away en-masse.

They were, I give you that. But the principle of it still stands.
User avatar #45 to #44 - stealingbikes (12/28/2013) [-]
As a parent, I have no problem with my kid being exposed to violent video games or movies before they reach the intended age group, but it's critical that they be able to differentiate fake from reality.

Too many parents think that the only way to discourage your kid from something is to shelter them from it completely. You'd think some of them would at least have the mental capacity to realize that the harder you try to keep your kid away from something, the more they're going to want it, and they WILL get access to it somehow.
User avatar #39 to #38 - poetsofthefall (12/28/2013) [-]
The point I'm trying to make is that you liked violent games not intended for your age group, so how can you make fun of another kid for liking a game not for his age group? Because you're older?
#41 to #39 - hudge (12/28/2013) [-]
Because liking something doesn't entitle you to it, especially if you're not supposed to have it at all.

Who the **** told you to give M rated games to children, anyway?

**WrightVGC rolled a random image posted in comment #419 at *roll 2* ** Your parents were wrong. If the kid wants to play halo then let him play halo as long as his parents are fine with it, I'm sorry if your parents felt differently.

There was a kid that became "pro" at Halo when he was like 6 or something. He kind of sucked but people thought he was cute I guess.

I played shooter games very early in my life, but come on. This kid looks like 6 years old, isn't that a tad too early to have played Halo 1, 2 and 3 and now wanting to play Reach?

Well, I assumed he probably played them, because the article said "his favorite video game franchise".
At least for me, if I say that a franchise is my favorite one, then I would have played all releases so far.

Like damn, for real though.
From ages 5-9 I was constantly in the hospital due to a cyst on (in?) my neck. Ended up having five surgeries to get rid of it. Th only thing I got was my health back, and that was perfect for me. My family does joke that I ended up giving my surgeon his own private island.

Guys guys, I've figured it out...

The kid looks waaay to young to play and enjoy the M rated Halo, right?

That kid is gonna be messed up from all that violence at such a young age! His dad must be a cruddy parent! But wait, he is a cruddy parent, just not for the reason you think!

Here's my theory:

>The dad wanted to play Halo, but couldn't afford it on account of his sick kid.

>"but wait!" he says.

>"An adorable sick child means I can have anything I...I mean he... wants!"

"Ayo bungie, mah kid iz sick and needs 2 play teh Haloz 2 feel better kthksbai."

User avatar #31 to #23 - doctorprofessornv (12/28/2013) [-]
Honestly it's pretty tame for an M-rated game, there's no dismemberment (save for the flood of course), and the worst gore is just blood splatters. Also since the main plot is about fending off an humanity destroying aliens, there isn't much moral ambiguity in it (multiplayer is a different story, but according to the halo universe it's combat simulation not actual combat.). While I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for small children, I don't see a huge problem either. Also the Chief (or the spartan image in general) is starting to become as ubiquitous as G.I-Joe and Superman in terms of child action figure role models.

They also gave him a megaphone so that he could hurl random insults at other sick people in the hospital and their mothers.

I don't get it. His son being sick somehow prevented the dad from going out and buying him a game?
User avatar #18 to #2 - chimpaflimp (12/27/2013) [-]
No, it meant he couldn't PLAY it because of a lack of consoles in hospitals. He might have owned the game, but due to his location couldn't play it.

I would assume after major surgery he was probably on some strong medications. When I went in they gave me steroids to help my body recover faster but it made my hands shake so I'm guessing the meds would get in the way of the fine motor controls needed to play a game and they most likely didn't want him getting excited or stressing out by playing Halo for hours while he is supposed to be resting. The hospital I was at didn't allow me to bring in game systems saying it would bother other patients or some silly thing
