The ratings pretty much say it how it is on the labels, games now a days are pushing the boundaries so ya some games you really want to look at the
rating label and maybe check it out online to see whats it about. Believe me I know some games are not for young children, I pretty much played enough
videogames to know whats what.
As for Halo 4, I have the game, its not a bad game and other then the whole cortana AI is kind of you know revealing for a digital construct that
is, and the fact that its a first person shooter. The game is really for kids, there is no blood in it like most first person shooters, for its
genera its a toned down game, there is nothing in the game that would make anybody stop and go WTF, or see anything they have not seen anywhere else
such as in movies or shows or even read in books. In fact in the online multilayer with real people your bound to run into more potty mouthed dudes,
and hear more swear words and crazy things then in the actual game itself, I know because I play Halo 4 online sometimes and I played the Halo series
from the first one way back when online. Oh and the funny thing is most of that, the # talking is coming from kids because they know they can get
Check the games you buy I would say, some games are really far out there, but there is a whole bunch of different genres out there anything from
horror, to sports, to shooting, to strategy games, to role playing games, to story driven games literally like books, to adventure games, puzzle
games, to survival games, and even plain wacky and silly games, and even plain nutty games, the types of videogames out there are really varied its
not all the shoot them bloody types. Those are just more popular now a days with the kids, from all the genres and games I played I would say there
not even the funnest games out there or the most interesting, but they have there moments.
And yes there are even some far out games such as "postal" if you never heard of the game look it up, and even newer games like the new devil may
cry 5 which came out a day ago. I would say is not for everyone, its got swearing, blood, sexual themes, and just plain gross stuff, and much more,
but all of that is on the label. Really just look the game up and you will find all and much more of whats in it and about. Halo 4 is one of the
more mild shooter games out there, I do not think its going to ruin your kids mind, in fact hes probably seen more stuff, and heard more swearing at
school or hanging around with his little friends, or in the books you read to him or the movies he seen, there is about as much if not more violence
and sexual themed innuendos, in the James Bond movies then in the whole Halo games.
