At what age is it appropriate to play GTA V? I just bought it off of Steam, and I'm 13. I'm going to skip the strip club and prostitutes, though.

It's all different for each person really, you'd be surprised at how many people your age have played it.

Just because it's rated M doesn't mean you have to br 17 to play it. It's just like a rated R movie, anyone can see it as long as an adult is there, so technically if the family is okay with it, it's fair game.

I remember being like 12 or 13 and buying GTA 3 and my mom was in the store so they sold it to me.

According to the ratings, it's recommended that you're at least 17 to play the game. But like, no one's gonna arrest you for playing GTA V when you're just 16 X'D.

My feelings is that as long as you're ready for the content of the game, you should be able to play it. And that age changes from person to person, and if it's later that's not necessarily a bad thing xp.

So uh, I hope you're ready and that you have fun with the game :p

I'm with most of the other people that have posted here: if you are mature enough, then you can play it. If you understand the difference between real life, and video games, then you're ok. And, as long as you are under your parents roof, and they are okay with it, then it's fine.

Age can be as misleading as a number on a scale when you're weighing yourself. Nine times out of ten, age really doesn't have anything to do with degree of development. A great example of this is the fact that I know several people that are in their 30s and 40s who can't handle their alcohol when I also know of at least a few people who aren't even legally adults yet that are much more mature about drinking.

I think the question should have been what age should a child use cell phones and the internet. They can discover far worse things on there then in any GTA video game.

a better question is why buy it, it is only fun if you like shooting, killing, and sometimes grind for money to get fun stuff. i think you're not understanding what GTAV is because when you first play the game you do not get anything, think of it has level 1 in any mmo game. So again why place it when you need to spend 100+ hours to get something.

I started playing GTA games when I was 10 years old, and I didn't turn into a mass murdering psychopath because I was raised right.

I don't think there's really a "right" age to play it. It depends entirely on the maturity of the player in question, and their ability to separate fiction and reality.

If someone cannot separate the two things, they should not play those games, it is that simple.

I do admit, I first started playing GTA around 2003-2004 (the first one being GTA III) and I was 10 at the time, but even playing at a young age, that didn't turn me into a crazy lunatic, shooting everyone everywhere while drinking, smoking, and driving crazy around town picking up women (if I did, I would be one messed up kid).

But personally, age doesn't really matter, it all depends on how "mature" the gamer is... Their physical age could be like 24, but his mental age could be like 12, or their physical age could be like 10, but their mental age could be like 22.

And to everyone that complains about kids buying these violent video game, I got something to say that I always say... "If you can't see that letter/number on the bottom right, then why are you even buying that game then?"

But by law, it's 16, 17, or 18.. Depends on the video gaming rating region you live in.

Well I think it varies. I mean I started playing violent video games at a real young age, but I was taught to never imitate what I was playing. I was in grade school when I first played Mortal Kombat, also around this time I was watching horror movies, pro wrestling, etc. My parents were pretty cool with all of this, as long as I didn't act stupid. With that being said. I think 13 to 14 would be an ok age, granted they want you to be 17 or older, but as long as a kid that age understands what is real and what is not real, and have parents that actually parent, things should be ok. Then again, compared to when I was a kid, and to now, things are different. I was born in 1988, I grew up in the 90's, and a lot of things were ok then, that aren't now, especially in gaming.

Just so we're all clear here, no one has a problem that a game where you pick random items to torture a person is 'entertainment' as long as you know it's not real life?

Is that ... is it me or is that just f*****d up?  That's considered 'fun,' torturing someone in a video game?

I don't care how mature a 13 year old is, that's heavy stuff.
