Is Call Of Duty A Suitable First Person Shooter (FPS) For Kids?

February 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 78

If you haven't played Call of Duty, it's a game where you kill people/computer animations and get points and xp towards ranking up and unlocking new guns, camos and perks. You get three perks and these allow you to do cool things, like sprint faster, survive explosions, and drop a grenade on death.

So what aspects of CoD are unsuitable for young people? Well, World at War features a mode called Zombies in which you blow waves of zombies to bits and see bucket loads of blood flying everywhere. Also, they drop f-bombs quite frequently. Therefore, keep your children away from everything made by Treyarch because they do not have young people in mind when they are making their entertainment. Infinity Ward is a bit better, but I would still recommend staying away from Modern Warfare 2 because it isn't a Kids first person shooter as the final kill cam shows spurts of blood in slow-motion. Children playing first person shooters is something you see commonly nowadays and it's good to see because as long as they aren't playing for the killing aspect, Call of Duty is an amazingly awesome, fun shooter for young people, and it can in fact help educate them on the brutality of war and teach them about different types of guns.

With parenthood comes the responsibility to look after your kid, but being over protective can be just as harmful as being careless with your children. Shooting people sounds like something your little ones shouldn't be doing, but if parents take a look the website above, they will find it somewhat suitable. Call of Duty 4 is the most age appropriate one from the series and it comes with an option to turn blood and language off. You really don't want your babies seeing excess blood and guts!

When you think about it, CoD is very tame as far as first person shooters go, for Gears of War, Halo, Crysis and Battlefield are all one hundred times worse. In fact, no one in their right mind should play games like Gears of War because it will scar their minds for a long time - you actually cut people in half with chainsaws! Anyway, I think that Gears of War isn't even fun anyway, whereas Call of Duty is fun and relatively tame, making it the perfect FPS for children. Enjoy playing titles from this series before they are replaced by more gruesome games.

I help parents decide whether a game is suitable before they allow their children to play it!
