    Hey all

    So my son is 11. I finally caved and got him a PS4 for Christmas. Of course he loves it.

    I try to manage his game time because I can totally see how kids can get right hooked on it. Scary actually

    Anyway in spite of this fear he just finished Spider-Man (great game, wow) and he's scoping for the next adventure.

    Any recommendations?

    I am really curious about 'Open Concept' games - is that what you call them? Where you have more freedom to roam around and play as you like instead of following a set trail or chasing a clock etc.

    Everyone says Red Dead Redemption 2 is outstanding. I agree it looks great but why is it rated R? Is it really too much for a semi-naive 11 year old?

    Any other great Open concept games worth playing?

    Maybe a fun racing game with huge airs too lol

    Thanks!

    It is target based, for instance, kill this guy or save this guy.

    Whatever u wanna do is up to you. It's fantastic

    ^ really Metal Gear is not a structured-level game?

    I'm curious about how storylines work in games where you don't have to follow a set pathway. Is it like a massive choose your own adventure?

    I don't like pure shooting games, especially for kids I think it fucks some things up in our psyche. War games too, fuck no thanks I hate that shit making War look cool and exciting to kids.

    Try the Lego games. Fun good comedy. Maybe to kiddy for his age. Fun never the less.
    The spiderman game is great. Fun and easy to learn.
    Rdr2 is a great game but for your son I wouldn't recommend as it has adult subject matter.
    Don't listen to this.

    What sort of 'adult subject matter'? Just shooting people? Are there brothels and hoes?

    Gory stuff? Swearing?

    Game looks so great I wonder if whatever content might be worth the gameplay. Our neighbor kids are like 8 and play GTA lol

    Game is great. Beautiful. Story is top notch. Can't list all the great thing this game does. Some of the dialog and missions. Some of the loan sharking missions got me thinking twice. Not because of profanity and such but because of the acting. Made me feel bad. Just little adult. Not all of it is like that but you run into shit.
    Not as bad a GTA mind you but same developer. Great game like I said. You would like it.
