What age would you let your kid have a shooting game?

If you had a kid who wanted a shooting game like Call of Duty: Modern Crapware 53 (or whatever the new version is for this year) what age would you allow them to get it?

Well they are rated mature 17+ and I play and have kids which are much younger. Although I do not think the violence is too graphic, so I don't know maybe 15 or so?

My hubby has one of the Call of Duty games for his PS3. My kids sit and watch him play. However, the only way I would let my child play a shooter game like Call of Duty, is if they can explain to me what is wrong and right about real gun safety. I want to know that my child knows and realizes the difference between a game and real life. They do have a children's cartoon game for the wii where they shoot cartoon aliens.

Right now at ages 7 and 9, both of my kids have had a little firearms safety training. My older brother and younger sister are both army soldiers and they have taken me and my two kids out shooting on a gun range. Before anyone started shooting, my sister made it a point to sit my kids down and talk to them about when it is appropriate to handle a gun.

I would probably allow my children to play shooting games when they are at least 15. My issue is not really the games themselves, it's the people who play them online.

Ooohh that is a good point. I don't have kids so I won't have to think about this type of thing for awhile, but I think youre right about the people online being worse than the game itself

Yeah I've played online, but strangely enough almost NO ONE has their mic on in Battlefield 3 (PS3) version. It's really weird.

I don't like any of those shooting games. I don't have kids, but if I did, I don't think I'd be on board for any of those games. There are plenty of other video games for them to play anyway.

That's a tough question. My husband and I have discussed what we'd do if our kids went bananas for video games, but we haven't come up with a good solution yet :/
