It's not bad letting a lil kid play cod. I let my 5 year old nephew play. As long as they don't get a hold of a mic like the dumb teeny boppers age. It's all good. Also u gotta tell them the concept of the game that its just a game and the guns are fake and guns in real life are dangerous. And if your kid rides the short bus then yes don't allow them to play. Quit talking smack about people's parenting.
did you seriously say "ride the short bus" to describe a child? what a douche. and if that is how you feel about handicapped kids, you shouldn't be parenting at all. a five year old?? playing a game with guns/violence/blood? crappy parenting and I don't feel bad saying it.
Just because someone has a different parenting style doesn't make it crappy or bad parenting. What about all the kids cartoons with plenty of violence, ie: Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Road Runner and Wile Coyote. What is it about this that makes it worse? Every child is different and as long as you are teaching them AND they are understanding that it is just a game, I see nothing wrong with it. Besides, with some of the stuff I've read in these forums alot of adults are not mature enough to play this game.
P.S. While I agree with Myramuff's views, I don't like the comment about "the short bus" either!
Lol I didn't mean that litterally..meant that as if you know your kid is a loud mouth and wanna start crap on Xbox then they don't deserve to play. I don't have a kid but I am always in the room with my nephews when they play games so they can't do anything I don't disapprove of. Now if you're a parent and let the kid play alone with a mic near hand...don't blame them. Blame yourself.
Half megatron: cheap arses? Why don't you buy every parent and their kid their own membership and their own game then bill gates.
Ok saying it that way sounds alot better . We very rarely mic up unless I'm in a party with my daughter so we don't have to worry about that and he doesn't play public matches unless it's zombies anyway. I know I'm probably gonna catch more flack for letting him play zombies too but I'm pretty proud of the fact that he plays just as well if not better then alot of the people he plays with. I would actually love to see some reactions if people found out that the person who just whooped more zombie butt then them was only 4. LOL!
You must be trippin Myramuff, sadly that you don´t live here in Germany.
Here you would have to face real consequences just from saying that.This game is forbidden under 18 here and that is good.
Honestly your attitude stinks like hell hopefully you have just your typically 5 mins..
If you think this is right: ok, show the parents of your beloved nephew what are you doing with him.
I would love to see their face!!!
People who would nerd rage just because some people who can't afford the DLC because the Xbox memberships are already expensive enough needs to chill the balls out. The ones who bought the map pack already had time to use and play with the peacekeeper. And it isn't that much of an 'awesome' gun most make it to be so chills y'all...
Let others who aren't as fortunate have something more to look forward to.
Less fortunate people with a xbox 360, a xbox live account, BO2, a TV & internet connection? Whats that add up too? Thats alot of money. These people are not less fortunate! They seem very fortunate to me. If they cant afford the DLC but have what is listed above so be it. We don't always get what we want. I'm all for giving MY money personally to less fortunate people and I do but these people do not qualify. LOL!
It is bad parenting to let your child play this game. Ever played hardcore? What's the commentator say when someone gets kicked. "Get that d... weed out of my site" or something like that. There not one thing appropriate in this game for a child. Not one. Whats is the rating on this game? I agree parents have the right to decide what their child does or says but jeez. I agree with a previous post, this isnt parenting.
LOL, you cant compare bugs bunny cartoon violence to this game. Have you lost your mind?
Violence is violence. Doesn't matter what shape it takes. He only plays combat training and zombies so the language isn't an issue but even if it was, he's gonna hear them somewhere, sometime. He is smart enough to know what words he's allowed to say and which ones he isn't. I do agree that there is nothing appropriate about this game for a child, however, as I said previously it is a GAME. As long as your child understands that there is nothing wrong with it.
Violence is violence but as you can obviously see when you watch both there is huge diffences between bugs bunny cartoons and BO2. I mean really. Lets be real here.
It is just a game. Very true. Whether its a game or a movie it shapes that child. Parenting is about shaping a childs heart and mind, teaching them right and wrong as you know. Its about being a parent first and a friend second. How a parent goes about this is up to the parent but there is better ways than others. I guess I'm just old fashioned. When I think of family time with my children, I'm thinking mario cart or a game like that. Not shooting zombies that look real or shooting life like human beings.
Surprisingly enough I do agree with everything you said and we do have nights of Mario party and plenty of other kid friendly games with the occasional COD thrown in. All I'm saying is as long as you are teaching your children what it means to be a good human being it doesn't make you a bad parent to let them play a game like this.
My girlfriend and I have seperate accounts and play on the same xbox and I got the DLC a week after it dropped and we both had it, however when the game launched and we got the hardened edition, I got the camos and she didn't, we both got the calling cards and I let her have the claw avatar prop.
