The long-time arcade game has gotten many improvements over the years, and with the advancement of technology, the game has gotten more intense. Its fatalities and graphics are clearer now, with the developers adding more clarity to the extreme violence that the characters dish out to one another. With intense violence, blood and gore, as well as strong language, your children will fare better if you keep this game away from them.

1. Grand Theft Auto 5

5 video games that are not for kids | Grand Theft Auto V

This is the fifteenth overall installment in the Grand Theft Auto gaming franchise and is set in San Andreas (a version of Southern California). The protagonists — retired bank robber Michael De Santa, street gangster Franklin Clinton, and drug dealer and gunrunner Trevor Philips — already tell you what you need to know about it: this video game is not suitable for kids. It has the whole nine yards of warnings listed, from gang violence and n_dity to extremely coarse language, and drug and alcohol abuse. Some R Rated movies do not even come close to being as bad as this video game.

Of course, video games are for enjoyment, not just all of them.
