Should A 10-Year-Old Be Allowed to Play MW2?

My younger brother has a PlayStation 3, and my mom wants to buy him Modern Warfare 2. Not only that, but now she wants me to allow him to connect to my wireless internet so he can play online. I think she's insane. I'm a Xbox360 guy, but I can't imagine the experience being much different. He has CoD: World at War, which he plays offline. That game at least has a content filter that hides the blood and gore. MW2 in my opinion, is much worse, for a young kid to be playing. What is the PS3 online experience like? I know on Xbox 360, he would get verbally assaulted and exposed to words he shouldn't hear for another 5 years.

Should he be allowed to play PlayStation 3 ONLINE at all?

Is there anyway to disable online voice chat if he were to do so?

Do you think he should he be allowed to play MW2 under any circumstances?

My little brother is 11. My parents let him play, but they dont let him play online. He did just tell me that there is a way to make it so when you die money comes out of you instead of blood. But he seems fine playing the game. he plays it all the time, just not online

It depends on the kid... MY kids? wont see anything like this till they are at least 14ish...

I just got MW for the Wii, and even that, I wont play when any of my kids are even awake.

My wife's little brother is now 11, and that dang kid has seen and done more in his little bad*** life than most highschoolers...

I would say no to online. That's too much. I wouldn't have any problem with the game. My 10 year old cousin got it for xmas from his parents and they made him realize that its just a game.

I wouldn't allow my child to play it. At some point they will do what they want, but not at 10. They should be outside playing anyways.

I would say playing the game online would be better for him then the actual game(as in going through the ligit game), but only if you can turn off the sound.

There is a lot less blood and gore this way, but the kids who have headsets for ps3 are just the same as xbox.

There must be a setting that I don't know about. When I die online money fly’s everywhere. I thought it was because I was a mercenary . But I think if the parents keep his headset and lets him play it wouldn't be any worse than the single player. I never use my headset and have my TV volume on zero. I have kids and usually have to play late at night so I don't want to wake everyone.

Nothing is more annoying that a 10yo on MW2! Im a 360 guy as well, but the last thing we need is more kids on MW2. For one, it is a violent game. For two, their voices are annoying, and for 3 they beat the crap out of me!!! LOL... but seriously, I dont think it is a good game for kids under 13 and that's pushing it ... it is rated MATURE for a reason.

When you die online and money flyes everywhere its because you had killed that person before and they are getting payback.

Oh, there is so much that I don't know about that game. I'm not a big gammer. I don't have much time for it, but I do like killing people every now and then.

Yes, my friend did it to his younger brothers

Do you think he should he be allowed to play MW2 under any circumstances?
IMO, no, but at least make sure you block out the airport mission.
My friends younger brother ended up getting real into COD3 on PS2, and was talking to people he met in the game over the phone. Because of that his chat was disabled, and my friend forgot the password, so 4-5 years later, he can't re-enable it.

This is the truth of it...it really is. I got metal of honor front line...(the first legit WW2 game) when i was like 8, I shot my dads 12 gauge when i was 10
(it was taller then me). It all comes down to, is you brother responsible and grown up for his age. I was so i got most of the things i wanted 22 rifle when i was 11, compound bow at 13, bought this i wanted with my own money. i learned a lot through all this, given the responsibilities.

As long as he knows hes killin terrorists ...why not?

Have you voiced your concerns with your mom? Seems like something you should take up with your parents. You'll come across as the responsible older brother to them, but a **** head to your little brother. Win some lose some.

Absolutely not. Im 20 and I play all these games, like COD4, COD W@W, MW2, MAG, GTA IV, and many others and there is no way that I would see it right letting little kids hear or see the stuff that goes on one those games. You walk through a mall mowing down civilians with a 249 for christs sake. No little kid should see that or do it. it even disturbed me a little bit that I had fun doing it. lol
