Top Ten Video Games Kids Shouldn't Play


The Top Ten

1 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Duh it has a mature rating same as R for a movie. If your kid can't watch movies like Scarface, Casino, and Showgirls then don't let them play this.

I'm a kid and I play this

This game involves violence, theft, sex, and God knows what else. Sadly, every 15-year old boy's dream. Horrible

All Grand Theft Auto games are horrible. My seven year old brother is playing grand theft auto right now. A SEVEN YEAR OLD SHOULD NEVER PLAY THESE KIND OF GAMES

2 Mortal Kombat (2011)

Want kids to rip people's heads off, this is the game to buy. - Maddox121

Do you really want your kid playing a game that has freddy krueger in it? That guy kills kids you know.

He's not real. I won't get nightmares from this FICTIONAL CHARACTER. - PizzaGuy

Okay guys, enough of trying to ban the Mortal Kombat series. There are worse stuff like A Serbian Film. A Serbian Film has a lot worse stuff than Mortal Kombat. - superchan5454

This game is not for kids! It has a lot of violence, blood, some strong language, sexual themes, and the gore, OH THE GORE!

3 Custer's Revenge

There are only a few hundred and they are very old. Plus you wont find them outside of america... But still this game is really racist - Harri666

A cowboy rapping a native girl! That's racist!

Oh Neptune, racist p0rn. - Maddox121

Just look at the cover if you don't know about his game! - Skullkid755

4 Conker's Bad Fur Day

It's not that inappropriate

It may look like a harmless kids cartoon video game, but looks can be deceiving. There is a lot of blood, poop/pee jokes, and swearing.

There's literally a giant, singing turd in the game. If you let children play this, you've failed as a parent. - Pony

There's even one scene where a squirrel soldier is being dissected alive. Now that's freaky!

5 Manhunt

Worse than Grand Theft Auto in terms of violence. The game itself is quite fine, but it has loads of extreme violence, gore and intense gameplay that you shouldn't let your kids near. If you buy this game for a seven-year-old kid of yours, then you should consider where you lost your brain.

Now we're talking'! This is too gory and is about killing and torturing random people. - AlphaQ

Manhunt 2 is much worser - Metalmaniakkk

What kind of parent in humanity would let his kid play a game like this?!

6 Rapelay

I heard the name and though: 'The name's enough. Nobody should play anything with the word "rape' in the name'

Drugs. Enough said - BorisRule


It's about raping innocent people for god's sake. - PizzaGuy

7 The Guy Game
8 Wolfenstein 3D

The title is very obvious.

I played this and I turned out fine


10 Doom

It scared me so much as a child

I played this as a kid

Worst games

The Contenders

11 I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream
12 Snatcher
13 Five Nights at Freddy's

No but there are no inappropriate scenes it just has a lot of jumpscares and noise.

It's not bad, the only problems are robot cleavage (Chica) and scary stuff - Maddox121

My whole life (starting in FIRST GRADE) people in my class always talk about being obsessed with 5 nights of lame old Freddy's. It just seems so scary, and this should not be for 1st grade. 4th grade & up is understandable, but REALLY!

Really! I know 2nd graders who play this game and I'm like, "How do you not have nightmares? If I was 8 and played this game, I'd be scared to death! " - DogmeatAndRex

14 Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball

Way to sexual for kids

15 Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude
16 Sims 3

Woo Hoo! I'm multiplying! - Maddox121

What if the kid makes 2 adult sims and made them have sex or they "woohoo"? What if the sim has to use the bathroom? That kid is totally screwed. - MeaganSaysHI

Why does everyone bust on this game - doodie

I'm playing the Sims 3 as I am typing this - DaLizts

17 Ethnic Cleansing

No one should play this game.

18 Seduce Me

I never heard of this game, but when I saw the title, I slapped my forehead and rolled my eyes in disgust. That automatically told me that NOBODY should play this.

*vomits* - Maddox121

This is a game about nothing more than sex

Messed up game - MLPFan

19 Manhunt 2

The game is a very disturbing one why because its has too much blood even more than the first manhunt my god the blood is disgusting.

I would have nightmares about it

20 Twisted Metal: Black

The games violent cuts scenes are more than enough to give kids nightmare's. - egnomac

21 Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing

You should only let your kids play this if you want to punish them. - egnomac

Stop with opinions, this game is family friendly - Maddox121

No human should ever be forced to play this garbage! EVER!

No one should play this game. - GoldenRocket

22 Happy Wheels

For god's sake! I know a 10 and a half year old who plays this. His parents are nice enough, but still they let him play this disgusting game. In fact, he plays Grand Theft Auto V, Mortal Kombat, Call if duty black ops, fallout, and many, many more. THAT IS AN OUTRAGE!

So...? I played them when I was 10. It's not that bad. Manhunt is FAR worse than them. Trust me. - AlphaQ

Happy wheels is a great game

You mean Gory, Bloody, Violent Wheelz.

23 Grand Theft Auto V

I heard that a seven year old played Grand Theft Auto since he was five!

I've heard of 8 year olds playing this... - Entranced98

This game is not even bad its just way too interpropperite for the kids to play.

24 Beat Em and Eat Em
25 Banned from Equestria Daily

Why not!

Lol, this one is definitely not for kids! - Pony

Full of Zalgo ponies around every corner, not a game to play if your a kid!

26 Super Columbine Massacre RPG!

Who was the disgusting moron that created this game? - DCfnaf

The crap. No one should play this game. I haven't heard about it but I can tell be by the title that it's horrible.

27 Mortal Kombat X

I love this games its one of the best fighting games out there. I love the gore and fatalities. would recommend to a 8 year old

You guys need to stop trying to ban violent games like this! If you want to see worse. Try to watch A Serbian Film. - superchan5454

Gross yet so gory

28 God of War 3 Remastered (Ps4)

The sex scenes are not for kids in fact this game is very violent to say.

I knew this game would be on here

29 Flappy Bird

I think this one’s on there more for their own sanity.

I don't remember this not being for kids...

30 Team Fortress 2
31 Minecraft

Look at the rate...

32 Call of Duty

Please, just keep your 8 year old off multiplayer. No one likes being screamed at while playing this game online. - Zach808

Underage boys play this all the time. It's sad really.

Not really. If the kids that play it aren't screaming and cursing on multiplayer, it would be fine. Now some kids don't act like that. But a lot do. - LordDovahkiin

Do most MA games have animal abuse? (I'm from Australia) Because I heard in Call of Duty you shoot dogs and break their necks

Well kids play this game series anyway. How sad

33 Undertale

I would say kids shouldn't play this game due to disturbing bosses but then I remember that one boss in Earthbound that's literal nightmare fuel. /shutters - Rue

If you mean as in the Genocide Run, then yes. - xandermartin98

This game is good! - DCfnaf

34 Grand Theft Auto IV
35 Um Jammer Lammy

This only applies to the international version where the protagonist gets sent to hell, in the US and Canada, she gets sent to an island instead - Maddox121

36 Fortnite

THIS MUST BE IN THE TOP TEN! A kid smashed a car because of this game! And personally, Drift and Loot Llamas ruined llamas and kitsunes for me. No kid should play this horrendous sugarcoated genocide game!
- TheDuttyGyal

If there was voice lines in the battle royale where they cuss then kids wouldn't be playing this game - B1ueNew


37 Candy Crush Saga

It's not as bad for kids compared to most games here - TwilightKitsune

Wait this is silly, its fine for kids and I have played it loads of times on Facebook, this and Bubblewitch.

Its here because young kids don't have the cocept of money and might pay 1000s in microtransactions - ikerevievs

38 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
39 Bubsy 3D

Bubsy wrote this down, I know it!

Aw come on it's a good game I mean what makes it so bad anyway

If you think it's a good game you
1. Haven't played it
2. Haven't watched it
3. Don't listen to TopTenners

40 Scary Maze Game

It's only about some spooky face pop out with a loud sound to just scare you, why would it be not for kids?

41 Fairytale Fights
42 Shrek

Shrek is love, Shrek is life. Don't even get me started on the game

Is this a joke its just popular movie made into a game?

43 Seaman
44 Borderlands 2

Its Actually Not Too Bad - VideoGamefan5

45 Dead Space 2

Yes the reasons that these games are on here is because it has to much blood and gore or the sex scenes and dead space 2 is a good reason for that.

46 Saints Row IV

There is a woman that has a gun up where the sun don't shine

47 Postal 2

Any demented subject matter imaginable would be desensitized to an impressional child who plays this game. From thievery to casual murder to even animal abuse, letting a child play this game for 10 minutes, let alone the 30 hours I've racked up, could damage them. Although Running With Scissors is fully aware of this, with a disclaimer screen being brought up every time the game starts. Although, I'd say so long as your mature enough to know that none of this is to be taken seriously, and can appreciate the possible satire, then the choice is yours if you want to play or not. - nerffan8000

48 Dragon Age: Origins
49 South Park: The Stick of Truth

Nazi Zombies, a kid is nicknamed a swear word. Best wait till children are teens.

50 Gal*Gun: Double Peace

Don't let the cute girls fool you into thinking it's a kids game
It's rated M for Mature for crying out loud! - PerfectImpulseX
