In some sort of way the point you're making's right, but as it has been said the gran theft auto series are rated Mature and henceforth it shouldnt be sold to minors, even if your chiled is a "spoiled little brat" just next to the M is an explanation of the contents of the game. It says somrthing like... strong content about drugs, sex and violence"... if parents dont read what the tag says it's nearly impossible to not notice at some point that your child is playing a game whose primary threads are violence, drugs and sex. I they do and they just dont care then its not the fault of rockstar for releasing a violent game, it's that child's parents fault for not looking after their son/daughter. If you are the one who is intimidated or you find offensive or repulsive or whatever then don't buy the game, just look at the tag and say "oh it says strong violence, use of drugs and strong sexual content, Oh GOSH this game is not for me" but dont expect (who shares the idea of it) society to ban them or something cause if laws were to ban everything that someone finds offensive, we would be living in autism. Every precaution that kids play a game like this are taken care of, if the game reaches the kid's hand then it's the responsability of that kid's parents. There's nothing to complain about except for irresponsible parents, but you cant say "parents don't care" cause' you're implying everyone is a bad father/mother and even so there's nothing you or me can do about it unless you're the president of the United States.

As for topic, the only game I would recommend everyone to play would be Guardian Heroes on the Saturn, best game ever. Unfortunately it has become either really hard to find, or really expensive.
Even though i personally hate the GTA games, you gotta admit they're popular, and in terms of gameplay and design, they're awesome, hence the reason why there are so many copy cat games in the market nowadays.
The only game I would ever recommend would have to be Xenogears on PSone, though its probably not everyone's cup of tea.
