17% of 'GTA IV' Purchasers Were Under 17


Posted August 15, 2008 - By TylerColfax

According to a Nielsen survey, 17 percent of Grand Theft Auto IV buyers were under 17. Among the 17 percent that were underaged, 61 percent bought it themselves and 39 percent had a friend or relative do it for them.

Rating games is becoming similar to rating movies. All it does is serve to placate conservatives and people who can't help but tell you how to live your life. No one at the point of purchase cares how old the customer is and the only people who want to enforce the laws are the out of touch fools that push them through.

So, what's the point? While it's obvious that these measures are doing nothing except generating press coverage for games, are they ever going to understand that ratings do nothing except anger intelligent, discerning customers who know what's best for themselves and for their kids.
