Sort of on this topic, but....
These games have an M rating for a reason. I hate all the bullshit controversy everytime a GTA comes out.
No, your fucking 8 year old shouldn't be playing this game and if you're complaining about the violence, language or subject matter you are a cunt and a shitty parent for buying your kid this game just to have something to bitcu about.
I remember selling parents GTA... 3? Probably GTA 3... back in the day. Their seven year old kid (or whatever- he was definitely elementary aged) was right there begging for the game and the mom had me take it out of the case and ring it up. I did my typical "this game isn't a good purchase for your child because it's rated M which is basically like a movie being rated R" and she just gave me this look like I was stupid. "It's a video game."
I hope that parent had good luck with that because she was an idiot.
