Do your boys play violent video games?

Laura, I don't allow the M games yet either (Ben will be 14 in Aug) and I agree the T ones can really push the boundaries (as can PG-13 movies). My boys are so into the military stuff, especially WW2 that it is hard to keep them away from any of it. We give them the "real war is not a game" on a regular basis and it's a topic that comes up frequently because of things on History and Military channel.

Like the gun issue, I think it all has it's place. We have only family type games for the Wii, we discuss war real vs "the glory" of it regularly, and I refuse to all the "blood & guts" type movies and games. It's only part of who they are and what they do.

I don't approve of them. I can't believe my boys just asked to play World of Warcraft yesterday either. I looked for an age on that game but all I could find was minors had to have parental permission. I've never played it but it just sounds violent. Mine aren't teens yet but I monitor any T games they're looking at too.
