I can't be the only one that's bothered by literal children playing video games intended for mature audiences. Especially when it's a story heavy game, it's almost insulting to the developers because the children playing are likely too stupid to comprehend the story. Take Hotline Miami for example. This fantastic game with an intriguing story is saturated with a community of morons (many of whom are children younger than fourteen, believe it or not) who post furry-tier trash like pic related. There's also the old tried and true example of Call of Duty. The classic world war two fps overtaken by spoiled young children with virtual bloodlust and short attention spans.

Children ruin literally every piece of media they touch.

plenty of studies done on traumatizing children with certain themes not suitable for their developmental growth, which ESRB, PEGI, CERO, etc. do not take into account. Caveat parentis. Recall who heeded the creation of these organizations, not what affects specific media invoke on children.

A book can be just as stigmatizing as movie, music, and video game: mutual exclusives. Adults can just be as affected consuming media their psyche cannot handle, it really depends on the maturity of the individual. Regardless, being traumatized by lived experiences occurs many times more than media. E.g Person witness another being killed by another human, animal, or accident. Etc..

I see more cases of kids bullying each other (teachers too) which adversely affect children more than what video games can instill; which the science suggest little affects overall. Raising a child seems to be the most significant component on how a child will grow, even if they play morbid games.
E.g. Parent that teaching their children about violent gruesome games (co-play or not) vs abused children by parents coping by playing violent gruesome games.

I'm not a puritanical conservative but I think I will limit my kid's time with individualistic video games until he is older. I would rather encourage him to meet people, or at least play multi-player games with people in the same room.

Otherwise he might end up with aDHD/autism/less empathty + sociopathic tendencies

This goes for TV too. I'd rather my kid read good books and stimulate his mind, and be happy with the real world, than to be exposes mainly to time wasters, and have to watch crappy escapism stories to survive psychologically.
