Immoral

I am amazed how parents and kids are rating this game as 12+ and 13+... And on top of that as a "great game". Hello?? This game promotes violence, thievery, burglar, murder, cussing... What are you teaching?? Even an adult, out of sense of moral, shouldn't be playing this "game".

This game seems pretty bad for children, but if you teach them that the stuff in the game is bad there is a high probability that they won’t do it in the real world, and if you sometimes play the game with your kid you can feel how they will act and you can learn what your kid is playing.

Fun game, just understand it is violent.

It is a really good game. If you are only going to play gta online, the nudity is completely optional. Keep in mind that it still has quite a bit of violence, but if they play games like CoD, Watch Dogs, or even watch superhero movies they should be fine. It has a lot of language, but they most likely hear worse just listening to middle school conversations. The blood is not very realistic, and you may not be comfortable letting your kid play this game, but they will be fine. Unless they live under a rock, they will find out about this stuff anyway. Trust me, You don't want to keep your kid innocent, they will get harmed and bullied in school. The game also has purchasable money, which your kid may want, but if they get one, make sure they buy the kostaka, and the sparrow upgrade, and that way they can make easier money in the game.

18+

It’s overall a great game. However, it is definitely not appropriate for anyone under 18. It has very adult themes, a lot of swearing, and can be very graphic.

GTA V for 14-15 year olds minimum, GTA Online for 12+

GTA V and GTA Online are both violent and mature games. The story of Grand Theft Auto V is gruesome and contains a lot of sexual intercourse, so it is not for kids to play, but Online is a different thing. It is a lot more child friendly (although not for -10 years of age) since it lets you do esentially a whole lot of stuff without being forced to do illegal missions first. In Story Mode, you have to complete a bank robbery and a financial bluff car repossession before being free to do anything. On next-gen consoles (PS5 & Xbox Series X&S) Online is a standalone game (PS5 users get it for free until June 14th), however on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, the game Grand Theft Auto V is required to play Online, and you have to complete Prologue (bank robbery) before playing Online, so that part should probably be played through by parents. But once you are in Online, you can do anything without needing to rob, steal or visit a strip club before being free. And yeah, all sexual content is optional in Online. However, you will notice some violence and potential drug use, so I'd say 12+ years of age is fine for Online. For GTA V Story Mode I'd say 14-15+ years of age.

Get the Hong Kong version

Parents should get the Hong Kong version of the game for their kids because due to Hong Kong's strict video game laws Rockstar games had to remove all the nudity and sexual content from the Japanese version of the game for example you can't enter the strip club and prostitutes are removed also a very graphic torture scene in one of the missions is skipped also one of the characters has a Tatoo of a penis on his back but in the Japan version it is changed to a rocket also graphic disemberment is removed eg: when you shoot someone in the head in the normal game their head will fly off but in the Japan version their head won't fly off and there Will be no blood on the head also most swear words and offensive words like the n word are removed
