50 Cent IS for Kids?

While many might take 50 Cent: Bulletproof's "M" rating for blood, gore and sexual themes as an indication that the game shouldn't be played by minors, 50 Cent has a slightly different take on the matter. In an interview with Reuters, the rapper explained "Just because it is rated mature doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it for your kids. Play the game and explain to them what they are playing."

50 went on to say "I think everyone knows that a game is a game. There's the part where you actually press start on the controller -- after that you are playing a game. If we have to take away video games, then we have to think about other things, and then we have no entertainment because we might influence somebody who's crazy."

Seriously, what is he saying here? Basically he's says that you should monitor what your kids play, and if there are "adult themes" it's best that you be there to explain to your child what is going on, and why this shouldn't be done in the real world. I guess you've got to applaud Fitty for taking a stand on the whole "videogames and violence" issue, even if it he doesn't do the best job of explaining it and does suggest you purchase his game for your kids.
