Sims.3
I have it on xbox and I love it but ss10 keeps wanting to play. Dh and I think he is too younge per the sexual content though mild he will have the options to "woohoo" with both men and women. The game is rated teen. Do you think we should let him play? are we being too strick. Want to know your honest thoughts

I don't let ss play teen games in our home. Or M. He can play what bm likes at her home. Not in mine.

We don't really believe in censorship in our home so we wouldn't have a problem with it but I believe that is a choice individual to each home.

We don't block many games here. But we use them for discussion and play with them. Although DH just got GTA5. He's not allowed to play it when the kids are home.

I love Sims 3.

I put an old TV in my room just so I could play some of my videogames without little eyes watching. Sadly, the TV was so old it broke soon after.

As for your question, I think it depends on how he plays the game. Is his main objective making romantic relationships? Does he want to play bbecause he's interested in building houses? I would look into why the game appeals to him and make my decision based on that.

I got my gamecube and the Sims Bustin Out, when I was twelve. My mom was concerned with the teen label.

The first scene in Bustin Out you are required to make out with another character. My mom just about flipped her lid. She wanted to get rid of the game, but I showed her the game wasn't solely about having relationships. She calmed down after that and I've been playing the Sims since.

I think it is fine as long as one of you is supervising. There is a lot more to do than just woohoo on sims.

I wouldn't let a 10 y/o or a 7 y/o play games rated T or M.  If the rating isn't E, then she wasn't allowed to play.  But we didn't really have that problem since we only bought E rated games anyway.
