For the most part, if the game states it's for 13 and older, or Mature audiences only (18+), it really does mean it's for those ages.
Call of Duty is meant to replicate war, so if you can think of anything that occurs in war that you don't want your child to see, then don't allow him
to play it until he is older.
Grand Theft Auto is a game surounding violence and criminals, where your goal is to be the best criminal. You can sleep with prostitutes, and you can
kill them afterwards to get your money back. There are torture scenes where you are the person torturing someone else. There are robery missions,
there are murder missions, there are assassination missions, there are missions where you're steeling drugs so you can sell them.
Now, these sound like horrible disgusting games, but really, both are a work of art, especially Grand Theft Auto. They are incredible games and are
excessively entertaining, but they most certainly are not for children under 13, or even under 18.
The behavior of the kids who are under 13 that play those games is absolutely revolting, and I assure you it will only serve to give you regret from
giving it to your child.
If he is 11 or 12 and you feel he is mature enough to handle those concepts laid out in a game designed for 18 year olds, by all means you're free to
expose them to him, but often it's not the content within those games that is the worst for a child, but the behavior of other children that can
effect him the most.
