Mature Games...Are they stealing the innoncence of young minds?

Why have games shifted towards the mature side of the spectrum? Why do kids and teenagers no longer hunger for pixelated platformers, or family-friendly games, but rather the next Call Of Duty, or the new Gears or God Of War? Is it to do with the influence of the older generation? Is it to do with the fact that kids always try and be more mature, therefore they have to play the more mature games? Is it to do with the excitement and do I dare say, danger, of playing a game which you're not meant to?

This stems from multiple experiences I've seen and had. The blog on her about why kids are obsessed with CoD, the fact I saw a kid throwing a s**t fit because his mum wouldn't buy him a 18+, and the kid looked about 9. One memory that is particularly strong is when my dad bought me Grand Theft Auto : Vice City Stories.


P.S I also have a youtube account, and hopefully I might start making decent vids, could you be lovely peoples and subscribe?

Alright, let's try this again.

My name is Alex. I'm 15 and I hide in my dark corner of the internet writing a so-called "blog" here on Destructoid. I think far too critically of myself which has reflected on my personality, as I'm cyncical and highly critical of...well a lot of stuff.

Anyway, games. It was all about the GameBoy Advance when I was young, and have grown up on an unhealthly diet of portable gaming (GBA,DS,PSP), a recent introduction of console gaming , lots of fictional media, and yummy food.

I'm lazy and very day-dreamy, non-committal and kind of temperamental. Plus I get distracted easily...I'm really painting a rosy picture here aren't I? Still, if you stick around, (I'm hoping) you may find something of quality here, and who knows, I don't think I'm THAT bad, right...right?

So yeah, vidjo games.

Deus Ex Human Revolution
Batman Arkham City
Portal+Portal 2
Mafia II
Total War:Shogun 2
Rayman Advance
Pokemon Crystal
Jurassic Park:Operation Genesis
Super Mario 64
House Of Dead III

Also, I have twitter now, even though I now feel like a complete sell out. Follow me and see how uninteresting I can be.
