Hello, does anyone have an opinion or input re: how appropriate or inappropriate Far Cry 3 is for teens? Of course I know the rating is M but I notice the E SRB label has a lot stronger info on it than many other M games. My son is interested in the RPG/open world aspects, the quality of the graphics, the vehicles, etc. but I am concerned re: the degree of graphic violence, "strong sexuality" etc. from the ESRB rating. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you want to see what the game's content is like, just look up a walkthrough on YouTube, and I highly doubt UBisoft will have a blood and gore or language filter. I did see a blood filter on the Assassins Creed games, but they never filter the profanity, and from what I've seen on YouTube for Far Cry 3, the F-bomb is everywhere and there is nudity, and I don't think you can filter that out, this game is not meant for young Teens, hence the MATURE rating!

Appreciate the response. My teen is a 16 1/2 yo, so not a young teen, but I still have younger kids around that could get exposed. Simply decided against buying the game. The company could simply add those filters; if it had them, it might have been an option for my teen.

Sexual segments are actually quite minimal in this game, they show breasts only & explicitly have a sex scene from the torso up (under 10 seconds). But that's literally once in the entire game. Though, I still wouldn't recommend it, if you're concerned about buying this for a younger child. Also, consider the other games you've already bought for your teenager because in comparison to many other M rated games, Far Cry 3 is perfectly in sync with their graphic/inappropriate aspects.

If you ask me, kids and teens become more mature about this sort of stuff if they are exposed to it sooner, and are taught responsibly by the parent. Filters are just a lazy excuse for parents to not do their job. But there is a reason why the rating system is there, so it does not matter if your kids or teens want an M-rated game... you do not get it.

There are a lot of drug references/promotion (you get high burning a drug field while your character is saying this is so cool), male rape, F-bombs, etc. I love mature games like God of War but this one disgusted me at some points and the game itself is rather dull. Look elsewhere for a better game.

Aw, that's not fair. Sure it's true what you said, but it could have been worse. At least in Far Cry 3, you don't dismember innocent people with chained swords.

M. burns,
I have this game, I love it, when he is burning the pot plantation he is saying the flame thrower is cool not getting high off the fumes, although he is from Cali so what you said would propably be very acurate for an American Young Adult to be enjoying it. The game is all about how far this guy will go to save his friends and its effects on him. That is why it has constant references to insanity and quote from Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventure in Wonderland" specifically the quotes about everyone being mad. Now as for appropriate that just comes down to what the parents will guage it as. I was playing Grand Theft Auto at ten, I had responsible parents to explain to me that it is entertainment only not one bit of it is truly acceptable in reality. So my PERSONAL opinnion is that if they are say 14+ it is fine, if they have certain psychological disorders such as Autism (bring this up from experience on an Autistic child playing Skyrim) they will need a lot more monitored time with it and much more attention to the explaination it is entertainment only.

Whoa, so i get plenty of hate for showing logical truth? I guess I should have lied since it's more convenient for some of you.

Neutral Person, (ha great name)

I do agree with your statement the more people are exposed and the younger they are the better they can handle, understand, and mature about the material in this game. The army has game store on base for this purpose, systematic desensitization in this example. As I mentioned I had GTA San Andreas at 10! I am fine, I am not screwed up, I don't deal drugs or kill people or steal cars or any of that matter. Because I was exposed to it in an understanding matter by parents at a young age. I quote Jhonen Vasquez's comic Jonny The Hommicidal Maniac "Any pile of stunted growth unaware that entertainment is just that and nothing more, deserves to doom themselves to some dank cell, somewhere, for having been so stupid!! Movies, books, T.V., music- they're all just entertainment, not guidebooks for damning yourself" and it is just that if you can't figure out its just entertainment then you are stupid. Understanding is taught through the parents, not just something you develope randomly from being shielded from that around you.

Finally! Somebody gets it. And that's a fitting quote by the way.
