Yah I bought my daughter a touch of and kind of regret it. She's Ion it a lot and I have to regulate her time. What bothers me is the thing is never used for music, just a bunch of dumb games.

Now, I'm not exactly at the point in my life where I'm considering kids (I'm 16, lol), but I started playing Gameboy (Wario and Pokémon) when I was 5, I played Dink Smallwood and StarCraft before I knew how to read (Danish that is, English came much later) and I got a PS when I was 8 or something. I would have no problem letting my kid play games at an early age. However, I think I'd build my kid a PC or get him/her a console so it's an at-home thing that I can control instead of a portable gaming system.

Those that wouldnt let your kids play FPS... Do you let your kids play cowboys and indians? Or stuff like that?

I hate the PC (political correctness) crap now a days that makes kids into prissy pansy adults... My parents brought me toy guns when I was a kid and I and everyone else I know turned out fine... Guns dont kill people... People kill people...

Never going to buy them stuff, but if they show they've worked enough and saved up money from allowance or something to buy a handheld or console then it's fine with me. I honestly don't care about the content of the games, it's more of them not really being all that productive or social. I'd rather have them outside being social/active.

When my nephew visited I asked his mothers boyfriend (my sisters boyfriend) if he wanted to come and play. He said that he never plays computer games with his kids like it was something that was a mistake to do for some reason.I never did get his point,the kid and me were having a blast.

I would teach my kids how to play RTS. If it doesn't play Starcraft, I will perform a post-term abortion.

I'll avoid consoles (don't use them myself). PC - would team them strategy and some (more open-ended) RPG's. Not only do I not enjoy shooters, but I find them of zero value beyond the game itself.
