We bitch about how kids getting GTA V easily nowadays yet we spent our childhood playing GTA:SA, VC, LC...etc.. with the same content and proud about it.

Yeah I know, not all of us are kids at that time, but the whole internet jokes & 90's kid stuffs make me think that many people played GTA in their childhood.

Yeah but we had to put some ******* effort into getting it in secret, playing it with the door locked, ready to switch the channel if our parents came in. Or going around "that friend"s house because he had it and you knew if your parents found out you'd get bollocked for it.

Playing GTA when we were kids meant you had to learn quick thinking, complex imagination, forward thinking. Time, effort and hard work were needed, not just a clueless parent. It taught us life lessons that would aid us in the future, it wasn't playing the game, it was all about getting there.

I remember playing Grand Theft Auto Vice City with my dad when it first came out, (I was eight at the time), and he always had a philosophy of, "Eh, you're going to learn about it eventually, it's better that you're exposed to it earlier so you know the differences of what people are capable of." Granted, when I played with him we did the ambulance, police and taxi "mini" games together just to prove that there are good people too.

So, it's fine if a kid plays it, as long as they are mature enough to understand how people are and that they can provide some good.

Your dad sounds awesome, did exactly what my dad did.

He got me hooked on Zelda games though, we played through so much together.

As long as the parent makes sure to explain violent/adult things as they happen in a proper way, there's no problem watching / playing whatever you feel like - in my opinion at least.

I know I did, and I have fond memories of doing so. I wouldn't have a leg to stand on if I thought they shouldn't play.

My first GTA game was my step-dad's so, I must've been around nine when I started playing, and all I did was kill people. I even had my special spots that I liked to go or methods; outside the hospital (in LC) either I liked to drive up and down the sidewalk or I liked to stand on that ledge of the building on it's right and shoot rockets at the cars. I even named this place, I called it death valley.

Also the place with the protestors! Where they all come running at you if you step into that one place. Had a great time with them.

We bitch because the parents of those children complain, and try to get violent games banned from everyone who wants to play, back when we played, it wasnt like that for the most part, or at least as big of a problem as it is

plus 9 year olds with squeaky voices is very annoying, which is something we never had to deal with
#269 to #77 - anon (10/15/2013) [-]
is that so? let me remind you that Postal 2, Manhunt and GTA: SA came out just about 10 years ago, and there was a ********* over it, stirred up by concerned parents and attorneys like Jack Thompson, who was on his peak on that time..Postal 2 and Manhunt can easily make it on my top 3 list over the most ****** up violent games ever..Dont fool yourself by saying it was different back then. It was the same.

My thinking is that kids see the same amount of sex and violence on TV and in theaters and hear the same language in the music they listen The reason video games are at the forefront of the debate is that they are the most popular form of entertainment for young people. Unfortunately, people forget that it is the parents job to decide what is acceptable for their children, but at the same time they have no right to demand that other parents follow their beliefs and vilify video games too.
#18 to #17 - senorfrog (10/15/2013) [-]
No, parents really don't give a **** . My first xbox game was halo and then the punisher, and the 2nd movie I saw was animal house. Parents just want their kids to like what they like or to shut up and leave them alone for awhile.
User avatar #120 to #15 - crazyhindu (10/15/2013) [-]
Its because these same parents are the ones bitching about how violent the games are its like he's 8 if you don't want him playing violent games don't ******* buy them for him its not the games fault its yours, this comic doesn't do the whole debate justice.

I remember when i was 6 years old Vice city came out, it was the **** . I remember when my parents got me a new computer, because prior to that i had pentium I which only allowed me to play heroes 3 (i didn't know you could go into the next day for the first week of playing it, i would buy all the heroes i could, waste their energy and end the game). So, here i am, with a brand new computer and a brand new Vice City. My dad installs it, i start a new game, enter "professionaltools" and begin shooting all the people around me. My dad laughed and my mom said "oh my god" or something along those lines, but no one stopped me from playing it. Those were good times.

Thanks to the upbringing me beloved grandma gave me, I am not a violent murderous killer, I try to be a good person, say thanks to anyone who helped me in someway etc etc. My local imageboard sure gave me some disturbing fetishes, but I haven't been there for a couple of years already because it doesn't suit my personality and because it turned into **** .

The first game I ever played was the first GTA. I was eight, and I turned out fine, or at least stable. Now i'm not saying that its okay for underage children to play these kinds of games, but every kid develops differently, depending on their experiences and (and i think this is really important) their mental predisposition. My seven year old cousin broke his nose trying to copy something from Mirrors Edge.
Maybe i don't know enough to comment on the issue, i dunno. That's just my two cents.

I played gta sa at the age of eight, and i had no idea what they were saying because i still didn't learn English at the mean time...
User avatar #44 to #26 - duckwith ONLINE (10/15/2013) [-]
Well... I think that it's normal to try out parkouring (if that's what Mirror's Edge is about). Also, it's just a fact, that everyone gets hurt/wounded in a while. Especially kids. I really don't know what to say about the strip clubs. I watched porn for the first time when I was eight.

But, am I normal?
#109 to #26 - lamarisagoodname (10/15/2013) [-]
Was it really all that violent? The game is just realistic and you can drive around without having to kill and/or burn everything in sight, yet we just chose to do so and the game responds by giving you the most realistic simulation. You can buy/sell properties or play tennis, bowling, billiards and go for a nice simple cruise, you're not FORCED to go around and murder as you would in Manhunt or Resident Evil etc.

Video games aren't violent, we are.

Same here, I started when I was about nine. Worried my mom so much about how I would turn out (she still didn't take the game from me though), because all I did was kill people in those games.

Years later, I still have yet to get into a physical fight and have no intention of doing so even now. Guess I turned out okay.
User avatar #46 to #26 - dementedllama (10/15/2013) [-]
Probably because your parents understood that the game wasn't to blame if you acted out in someway. Some kids are affected by violence in games, but that's not the problem. It's ****** parents shifting the blame to a game instead of pulling their heads out of their asses and raising their children with intelligence.
User avatar #38 to #26 - keiishiyama (10/15/2013) [-]
Total truth. I think if parents can make kids understand the gist of what's happening - or at least just trust their children to be mature and level-headed about it - rather than blatantly hate it, everyone wins.

My mom and I have a ton of fond memories of killing each other with the Panzerfausts in Medal of Honor: Underground.

GTA: Vice City for PS2 was the first video game that I really *remember* owning. I'm 19, that game came out in 2002, so I would've been... Somewhere between eight and ten, I don't think it was "new" when I got it, 'cause I'd played it at the house of my friends who were even younger than I was.

Game contained a lotta "bad" stuff. Tame by today's standards, but still "bad."

I turned out mostly fine. Any problems I have definitely do not stem from video-games. I'm antisocial, the gaming may contribute to that, but so did a lot of other things. Either way, I'm definitely not some sex-crazed, drug-addicted lunatic who goes out stealing cars and committing mass homicide for the lulz. Still a virgin, don't even do so much as smoke, absolutely hate thieves, and haven't gotten into any sort of physical confrontation since Middle School, and even then? That was two punches traded, the end.

To give you an idea here? My dad was a Schizophrenic involved in every drug known to man, and accidentally wound up killing himself with it. My mom is a habitual liar and thief who can't own up to her problems and face them. Both of them let me do whatever I wanted as a kid, but they drilled it into my head as to what was right and what was wrong. Both of them, and my dad especially made a point of telling me never to become like him.

I've got my problems. Plenty of them. But they aren't from video games.

But, long story short? People blaming video games for societal problems are a bunch of ******* morons. They might not help, but letting kids play games isn't necessarily ****** parenting. We shift blame toward objects, things, other people so easily... Yet we never look in the mirror and stop to question whether or not the root of the problem might just be ourselves.

Eh. Food for thought. Ignore me if you like, I like to go off on a tangent every once in a while.

We now return to your regularly scheduled programming.

User avatar #188 to #186 - raamageddon ONLINE (10/15/2013) [-]
Exactly. It's not to say that it has no effect at all, but people will act how they will. The grand majority of us will act responsibly enough about it, but there are those that overstep boundaries.

And yeah. I have no idea why it happened, I know it has nothing to do with any of the "no adult content" rule, 'cause I don't post it and I don't thumb it. It's been quite a while, but I have no idea where I ought to go in order to figure out what happened.
User avatar #190 to #188 - theshadowed ONLINE (10/15/2013) [-]
Well I found out I couldn't thumb. I had no idea what to do, so I tried to report it as a bug. Then it told me I was banned. I had to find more information off of phanact. I've recently got 2 friendly messages saying that I've thumbed **** stuff and if I do it again I'll get banned.
User avatar #193 to #190 - raamageddon ONLINE (10/15/2013) [-]
I wasn't aware that Phanact was an authority figure on FJ. I've got no messages of any kind saying I thumbed up something of that sort, so IDK. How did you manage to contact him?
User avatar #195 to #193 - theshadowed ONLINE (10/15/2013) [-]
Well hes always been some friend of the admin. Him and the top thumbs rankers had a little invite only board, but I think they had a hissy fit or some **** . But he recently got made a mod I think, so he now has unlimited power. Don't expect to get a reasonable answer out of him. I have him as a friend for easy access to question time, so go onto my profile, find him on my pretty small frind list, then post a comment on his profile or something
User avatar #213 to #195 - raamageddon ONLINE (10/15/2013) [-]
His profile is closed so I couldn't leave a comment, but I did go ahead and send him a message. I realize that a reply or a solution is probably unlikely, maybe asking for too much, but it was worth a shot, right?
User avatar #215 to #213 - theshadowed ONLINE (10/15/2013) [-]
Certainly
User avatar #320 to #215 - raamageddon ONLINE (10/16/2013) [-]
Well. Bit of news. Phanact did indeed reply to me. It wasn't much, but it's better than what I had before. I evidently thumbed up something that got flagged. He is uncertain as to what it may have been, but it was thumbing something.

I have no idea myself, but since people are getting banned for all sorts of stuff from what I'm hearing, I suppose it could've been any wide variety of things.

But, he says it's probably a two-week ban. So, I can live with that.

I mean, I don't think it really matters how many violent videogames you buy for your kid, as long as you teach them that what is happening in the game isn't real, and that it's only a game, and should not be imitated irl.

My First ever video game as a young lad was Spyro, Ripto's Rage. And I Loved it. The violence was tame and didn't come off as graphic to me. Then came Sly Cooper, which was awesome. Then came Jak 2. That game had a lot of similarities to older GTA games (stealing cars, killing hundreds of innocent civilians just for the hell of it)  and I was a timid little wuss for that portion of my childhood. I never acted on any of the things depicted in the game, just played it because it was a fun game that I deeply Loved. I knew the difference between right and wrong. Did I ever want to slaughter the assholes at school? oh hell yes, but I never got the idea from he games I played. That's just me. Sure I would channel some of my negative emotions from the jerks and assholes into the game and let off the steam there, but never in real life.  Because i knew what was right and was wasn't. That's the point.

To be completely honest, I wasn't allowed to play rated M games when I was a kid, instead I grew up playing the classics then, and the classics now. When I was really young original Super Mario Bros, Sonic, and Megaman were my **** , and when I got a little older Crash, Spyro, Newer gen Mario games like Super Mario Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion became the games I played. From then, I grew with my games, I began playing Soul Calibur, Street Fighter, Ratchet & Clank, etc. I still played Crash, Sonic, Pokemon and all that but I wasn't allowed to own any rated M game and I would only play GTA or Halo at friends. It wasn't until I was 12 that I got my first rated M game, Bioshock 2. From then I was able to mature with my games and went back and played the stories of our favorite games like San Andreas and Vice City. Currently rating is just a letter to me, and if the game is a title I'm familiar with or appears to have potential, I purchase it, but like everyone else I can't forget about our childhood. I don't want my kids to miss that, every child needs heroes like Megaman, Crash Bandicoot, Sonic, or Ratchet. Playing those titles will make today's Uncharted, The Last Of Us, Assassin's Creed, GTA, that much more exciting, and even then their favorites will remain in their minds and in their hearts.
I can only imagine how ridiculous this sounds... sorry

Who gives a **** ?!! The same ******* parents who then complain about videogames making their children violent. Well they wouldn't if they were responsible and do not buy such games if the kid is under the age restriction of those games.
User avatar #302 to #301 - aliciadizzle (10/16/2013) [-]
thats exactly what i say. but its not my place to tell parents what their kids shouldnt or should play, when we sell games we have to read off every reason why its rated M, and they say ok. and pay the $60 . so when i read that **** off the box directly to their face, they know whats coming

but wont the media eventually try and spin this as the game developers being the awful ones and not the parents. and if some how the government gets annoyed by all the complaints they will be putting more restrictions

So sick of employees who'd act like this. Granted the kid was young, some people just think you can't handle any kind of fake violence. Kids pretend to play with guns all the time, hell my friends played war games a lot, and it's not damaging.   
   
 It just takes a talk from the parent to point out "You can do this in the game, but there are consequences in real life. There are no respawns or save files to reload in the real world, so be careful how you act" -pretty much my mom's exact words

But parents don't do that... they don't care and then the youth grow up to be little ***** who think that they are edgy.
User avatar #263 to #261 - kinginyellow (10/15/2013) [-]
Ok and you have proof of this? My parents and my friend's parents are for the most part, strict enough to teach us how to act in society and how to differentiate games from reality.

A kid acting rude or throwing a tantrum isn't bad parenting, most kids have done this, and can quickly have it taken out of their system by proper parenting. If anything, blame a society that makes it easy for kids to have access to electronics, making grounding.taking away items little to nothing, and stopping anything as small as spanking a child who won't shape up.

It's mostly just straw men used to make younger kids sound bad.
#268 to #263 - howaboutnsfw (10/15/2013) [-]
WTF are you arguing for? You basically said that you and your friends have good parents. Congradulations. Then you said that kids won't act bad if they have good parenting. Good ******* job Sherlock. Then you say that I should blame society. I DO. My point was that parents aren't responsible enough to teach their kids the difference. Mine did, my friends did, yours and your frinds did. But the current generation clearly doesn't.
User avatar #273 to #268 - kinginyellow (10/15/2013) [-]
I AM in the current generation, and I rarely, if EVER, see younger kids acting like assholes in public. On the internet? Yes, but so do adults as well, its anyone hiding behind anonymity who usually likes rude, regardless of age.

And you don't blame society, you blame the parents. They're stripped of being able to be strict because of society saying that kids need to be coddled and can't be given negative reinforcement, regardless of the parent who's TRYING to teach their kid right and wrong.

You grasp at straws by generalizing all young kids, which is just immature and idiotic. And you blame parents that you haven't actually observed, you just assume if a kid is rude and annoying, he's automatically been raised wrong. Everyone has different temperaments and they have to be handled accordingly, and some kids don't shake bad habits until they enter the end of high school and go into University.

You're just getting pissed off over things you can't bother to even try and understand, and claim everyone must be below you and that it's everyone's fault but the child's.

Grow up.

I blame society, but I can't just tell society what to do can I? Parents are not dictated by society, they can parent their kids the way they want (aside from abuse and neglect). But they don't have to buy a game that they don't want their children to play. And maybe it's just in my area but everyone (majority) around the age of 12 is a piece of **** , and their parents don't care. I wasn't pissed off. All I said was that people don't parent the way that you and I wish they would.

Good talk though. God I love this site way more than YouTube
User avatar #282 to #279 - kinginyellow (10/15/2013) [-]
I don't say anything about their parenting purely based on the child's actions, especially if the parent isn't around. Some kids will do **** only because they think if their parent never finds out, they're not punished, and are you gonna go all the way out to find this kid's name and his parents? Most people don't and the kid preys on that, it's a form of semi-anonymity.

And when I said society to blame I mean that spanking being outlawed, when it really didn't even cause the "emotional damage" it was thought to, it was just a reminder to shut up and not be an ass, and parents can't even do that without a CPS call and media attacks, it's so ridiculous.

I mainly wish parents could have more control in this world, and kids weren't so freaking protected at every opportunity. In public high schools here, they're actually trying to make it impossible to fail.

I had a conversation with a woman working at Gamestop when I went to buy it. She said that they got a call from corporate telling them not to tell anybody about what's in GTAV unless they specifically ask because it was hurting sales.

Trying not to be biased here because I wanna hear your opinions.

Your thoughts, fj?

Well, that's the old "Desu~ eyes" meme from godknowshowlongago. The avatar itself was made by an old no longer existent user TinyHeadHouse at my request.

And goddammit, I can't seem to find s Nichijou channel. I need to make one.

wonderful. let the kids whose parents aren't responsible enough to find out what's in their kid's game grow into a bunch of little ***** who will never make it in life. It's natural selection at work
User avatar #242 to #240 - yuukoku (10/15/2013) [-]
Well, I wouldn't go generalizing it like that. However, it is statistically proven that kids whose parents don't care about the games they play often don't do well in life. To that point, correlation does not entail causation. The counterargument is that parents that don't care about the games their kids play just don't usually care about their kids.
User avatar #257 to #242 - tehlulzbringer (10/15/2013) [-]
yes and kids whose parents don't care about them don't do well in life
see how that works?

Completely acceptable, if you buy a car do you not research/ask/inspect it. Same goes for any game.

Does it really contain explicit anal sex scenes? My brother just got this game for xbox for his birthday and he just plays it in front of the whole family in the living room....

It says "and" dude...
User avatar #37 to #7 - deathstare (10/15/2013) [-]
Your gonna love Trevor and Beverley. Also because video games are getting raunchier, GTA 5 now has nipples and extensive swearing in the original cut. Where as previously, you'd need to get DLC, or sign up for something.
User avatar #10 to #7 - bornzor (10/15/2013) [-]
Oh wait it says "anal" wtf
User avatar #11 to #7 - MegaAwesomeSauce (10/15/2013) [-]
There anal sex scenes in which you can view from the front, so it's not strictly explicit but its not something you'd want your parents to awkwardly walk into when playing
