Yeah I agree with JoeyValles. If there wasn't blood and STRONG language in the game, it would've been rated T for teen. Even know I'm 13, if I had a kid and I was a parent I wouldn't set a certain age limit for your child. The only way to determine if your child can handle these games is to see if they're mature or not. My parents didn't do that for me- I started playing GTA at 7 years old. And you know what? I really wish I would have started later because I did try to act like Niko or CJ. Act like I'm real tough and got into a lot of trouble. And today, I no longer play M rated games I just stick to T for Teen and lower games.
