It is not that I cant be bothered...

Lets take GTAV for example (i know i know, apples and oranges but indulge me). The game is fun, story is not too shabby, a lot of cursing, some nudity, a lot of killing etc. The game is a must-have for kids, find me one kid who hasnt played GTAV and I bet you my toes his parents are broke. "But muh +18" come on, please, this is like "gun-free zone" signs, they do not work. Now you say "so just dont buy the game for your kid" and have my kid hate me for the next half year while his friends play the game and constantly talk about it? Yeah, good luck. It is a real pickle.

My idea is to have kid-safe option in games (never gonna happen, too expensive, maybe if gov gave tax breaks?). No blood, no boobies and no bad words.

I hope the next youtube implements some kind of option for promoting kid-friendly channels so I can make an account for my brother, turn on the settings and not worry what he is watching.

It isn't. Control yourself, control you child and what it receives if you are worried about it. Do not control me, do not control what I use/get.

You lazy American.

There's a difference between signs indicating "gun free zones" and parents parenting their children. If a parent refuses to parent their child, that isn't a failure of a warning label, much like the signs of "gun free zone" isn't a failure of the sign to stop fire arm usage.

I can't get behind anything you're writing as you're advocating for a nanny state. No. Just no.

I am not advocating for it to be mandatory, I would like if there was an option. Also, a lot of parents dont parent their child's gaming, maybe another solution would be gov raising awareness at what +18 warning stickers on games actually mean.

You arguments are basically the same reasoning that gun control advocates use, only without the possibility of death.

Meh, I am done arguing this, nobody is adding anything of their own, only attacking me. I do not claim I am the All Knowing, I dont know shit. People strawmaning me (not you), I didnt say anywhere to make shit mandatory or to force it on people, I said it would be nice if an option to hide mature content was available...

If you can't keep adult stuff away from children you have much bigger problems. Also, I don't get the obsession of Americans to keep words away from children. That's so stupid. Japan is much better. Over there children's TV has bad words, boobs and blood. Hurray!
