    Pretty impressive. I have no children and my younger brother never plays campaigns (online, exhibition in sports games, free roam in sandbox games, et cetera).

    Your kid is pretty good in video games it sounds like, or at least that one game. I wonder how good he is in racing games. I started playing them around that age.

    It is obvious your son loves to play games. If he keeps that up he might even own his own gaming company one day.

    Well done on age appropriate gaming

    I've only just started allowing my 3 year old to play Skylanders (rated 6+) and I'm not sure he should, because despite it being a kids game, there's still an awful lot of killing in it. My son is too young to know that death is permanent and I want him to understand the grave consequences of being killed rather than summarily dismiss it. The last thing I want is for him to run in front of a car because he thinks he'll respawn at the last checkpoint.

    The degree of violence and graphical depiction of death obviously varies between children's and adult games, but it's still the same concept - life has no meaning and we can take it as we choose. We form many of our values and morals in the first few years of life - "It's ok to kill" is not a lesson I want to teach my kids at an age when the line between reality and fantasy is blurred.

    How many of us as kids thought TV characters were real? When I was a young kid I thought TVs were home to tiny people. How many of us picked up a stick or kicked or punched our friends because the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles did it? A child's sense of morality is based on what they see others doing (monkey see, monkey do), not on what they're told to do.

    I don't want to see in-game behaviour extended to real life where it becomes acceptable to crush insects, pull the wings off flies and to kill small animals. That can easily escalate to violence towards other children with no sense of responsibility or remorse. When there's no consequences of their actions in a game, they become trained to believe that's how life work. I want to protect my kids from people like that, not encourage them to become it.

    On the other hand, propensity towards violence is a personality trait that may develop with or without the aid of video games, so we can't lay all of the blame on gaming. I just don't think it should be encouraged or accelerated by exposing young, impressionable minds to inappropriate material, be it games, movies, books, music or real-life violence.

    Long story short - the ratings system exists for a reason. There are psychological impacts of exposing underage kids to age-inappropriate material. I have played violent video games since my late teens, but I don't play violent games around my kids. Equally, I love blood sports and gory movies, but it's not something kids should watch.

    As tempting as it is to be the "cool" parent with a prodigal micro-gamer, my kids won't play violent video games until they're mentally and emotionally equipped to deal with it. My best mate's kids were raised on a diet of Doom, Quake and Counter-Strike and have growm into unemployed, emotionally-retarded adults whose virtual lives are more important than reality. Not the example I want to set for my own children...

    This^

    The ratings system, while not fully agreed on by many people, is actually properly implemented and for a reason. An example for the sake of exampling (lol), MA15+, known in full as "Mature Audiences 15 years and over", usually contains strong violence and coarse language (swearing/profanity). Violence is the act of doing harm to a living being - strong violence is usually the killing and/or decapitation of a living being.

    A good parent would not advise and prevent their children from viewing or "inducing" these actions until they are old enough to understand what the content is and why it is there. When I first played MA15+ games (M17+ in America) a few years ago, I knew what the content was involved and I was scared "shitless" by some of the actions. Today, I know that the content it is placed in is fictionalized and that nothing I do there will have an effect in the real world, and that it is there as a form of fun and entertainment.

    To the OP, I strongly advise that you limit your son from playing games like Uncharted 3 until he is old enough to understand what it's about and the effect it has on the general society.

    When my wife & I have kids, there will be no video games being played if they can go outside and enjoy the weather or until they are 16 years old. My ex-wife doesn't allow my our daughter to play video games and she is 9 years old. She is on her school's dance club, plays outdoor/indoor sports and she is smart. When I was 6 years old, I was asking my mom to teach me how to cursive write.

    I'm with you Jay. Moderation and balance is the key. As a parent, it's too easy just to plonk kids in front of the idiot-box as a substitute parent to get some peace and quiet. I'm guilty of that myself when I'm doing chores or need an hour or so of "Shut the fuck up!" time, but it's only healthy in small doses.

    Video games are highly addictive, they're like crack for kids. I'll let my son play educational games on my iPad for about an hour a week, but even then, getting him off it is akin to pulling teeth. I've only let him play Skylanders for a total of 90 minutes in 2 months. As much as I want him to enjoy my hobby, it's irresponsible of me to let him do it whenever he wants, which is all the time.

    If it's daylight, kids should be running around outside or doing something with their hands or mind, not vegetating on the couch...

    As long as the kid realizes that it's a game, it doesn't matter if it's violent, just that he can tell the difference.

    You create a thread like this, in a time like this where video game/gun violence is the current political flavor of the week and on the forefront of everyone's agendas, you better expect that people are gonna ask you what the hell you're thinking. If he didn't want to hear it then he shoulda used some common sense and kept his pride to himself.

    I think that child's age belongs to Mario, Sonic, Little Big Planet and stuff like that. I'm pro early age gaming but come on, at that age you should be jumping platforms not killing people

    OP weighing back in. I don't think I'm the cool dad, I realize it's lazy parenting and I use it for baby-sitting as I work from home while my wife works full time. I don't like my kids to play violent games much, I don't let them play any Call of Duty games or BioShock. I have let them play Halo -- killing aliens seems better than humans, though it most def. is humans you're killing in Uncharted over, and over, and over...But in my mind Uncharted is about a story with a healthy dose of pesky bad guys standing in your way of completing the story -- it's not just killing for the sake of killing. At 6 I'm not the least bit worried that he can't separate video game violence from reality. I mean, it's not reality, what is there to confuse? I guess I'm not as concerned as some about exposure to fake violence for my kids. I'm not sure if watching Spongebob (which yes, they do watch) is any better for their developing brains. At least they're learning hand eye coordination, problem-solving, and 3D spatial navigation or something like that, lol. Weather permitting we spend a lot of time outdoors together. They are thin kids, but that may be down to their lack of a desire to eat much when gaming or watching tv. My 6 year old does fine with his schoolwork. He's always been on the hyper side, he was a complete class clown in preschool and is just now getting that under control. He's always been a ham. Literally the only time he sits still is for gaming or tv watching. He's always been that way, and he never even watched tv until he was 2+ years old.

    I am anti-gun, I own no guns, and support all gun-control measures. I don't even like my kids having toy guns, but my wife has bought a ton of nerf guns for them over time, as it's the toys they want the most.

    I liked video games when I was a kid, but that was a long time ago and there weren't a lot of options (had pong on a home console when I was quite young -- that'll date me, lol) and so I didn't play a lot. Still, I had access to some guns, especially bb and pellet guns from a friend and had no qualms about shooting and killing birds, even right out of their nests. As a teenager I also killed unwanted cats that we had as well as a host of farm animals (as part of farm work, not for the hell of it!). Kids aren't born with consciences, lol -- I don't think mine was well developed until I was at least into my 30s. Point is, video games are obviously not the source for violent behavior in the real world, and I'm not a fan of blaming obvious bogeymen for people gone wrong. Marijuana, rock n' roll, the internet, porn -- video games is just another new thing for older people to be suspicious about. I'm not advocating for young children to play age inappropriate games, but games like Halo are so ubiquitous in society now that even for younger kids to play them doesn't seem like such a heinous thing, all things considered.

    Anyway, just wanted to share that in spite of my misgivings and self-recriminations for allowing my kids to play games underaged, I can't help but feel a little proud of my kid tackling a big game like Uncharted 3 at such a young age.

    Both my kids like Little Big Planet and have been playing that as much as anything else lately. Unfortunately they like to play the online user levels which are usually about killing Justin Bieber or some such nonsense.

    There are some super-fags all over this thread.

    Congrats to your kid. All I had at that age was Donkey Kong and Asteroids.

    I see your point but with the ways things have been now days if you let your kid go outside alone there is a chance he or she will get kidnapped so i could see a parent letting their kid play video games over the risk of them getting kidnapped obviously this isnt as much of a problem in smaller towns but I can see the benefits of both sides I have a daughter who is only 1 and a half so I havent had to make the choice of whether or not she can play video games and I feel that once she is old enough to do so as long as she has no homework and is doing good in school i would let her play age appropriate games whenever she wants
