Top Ten Video Games Kids Shouldn't Play


The Top Ten

1 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

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

OH MY GOD! HOW IN ALL OF HELL ARE ANY KIDS PLAYING THIS?! Frankly, not even some adults should play this damn game. I know an 10 and half year old who plays this, happy wheels, Call of Duty, Mortal kombat, fallout, and just about every gory and violent game ever made. His parents spoil him. I can safely guarantee he will be a murderer and get arrested when he grows up.

Not every kid who plays these games are a murderer. I don't think they should play THIS game, but games like Call of Duty are fine - Nayan2003

Pretty much all the Grand theft Auto games are bad for little kids. - egnomac

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

2 Mortal Kombat (2011)

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!

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

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!

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

Oh Neptune, racist p0rn. - Maddox121

4 Conker's Bad Fur Day

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!

It's not that inappropriate

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

Ok, the picture already scares me. Kids should not play this. Ok, I'm gonna stop looking at that pic now. EK

15 Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude
16 Sims 3

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

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.

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 Beat Em and Eat Em
24 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.

25 Mortal Kombat X

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

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

What the hell?! How are kids playing this game? Seriously, today's parents are so retarded! ( quoting stupid parent)
"duh! this game looks appropriate for my 5 year old! It has a yellow guy on the cover! Duh! Duh! Euedijsisiw ehsiwehs siese! I'm gonna let my kid see grotesque and disturbing imagery of people getting chopped in half and brutally murdered in 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 different ways! Doyee! " *sigh* Parents honestly let their kids play this? Kids should play super smash bros instead. Maybe street fighter or tekken. In this horrible game, people get maimed, dismembered, and even ripped IN HALF! THAT IS JUST SICK! In fact, one "Fatality" depicts a woman with extremely jagged and sharp teeth decapitating the opponent and then taking a bite out of their FACE! '

26 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.

27 Flappy Bird

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

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

28 Banned from Equestria Daily

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!

29 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

30 God of War 3 Remastered (Ps4)

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

There's nothing wrong with this game

I knew this game would be on here

31 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

32 Team Fortress 2
33 Grand Theft Auto IV
34 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

35 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

36 Minecraft

Look at the rate...

37 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
38 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

39 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?

40 Fairytale Fights
41 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?

42 Seaman
43 Borderlands 2

Its Actually Not Too Bad - VideoGamefan5

44 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.

45 Saints Row IV

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

46 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

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

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

49 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

50 Fortnite

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