Obviously, it's totally up to parental choice. 

I, for example, am very lenient regarding that kind of stuff - I grew up watching wholly inappropriate media etc.

But, to be clear, the game is an 18 in Europe; it deals with multiple adult themes and has clear adult content like: violence, sex, drugs, racism, rape, alcohol, smoking, gambling, torture, murder, crime, swearing, slavery, prostitution, guns, knives, and the such like.  

I would imagine most parents wouldn't approve of this material for non-adults, especially non-teens.

That's a decision the parent has to make. I remember being that age and playing San Andreas with hookers, blowing peoples heads off, stabbing people, robbing, and it was fun. I clearly never grew up to be a serial killer after my childhood obviously, but Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't for the faint of heart for younger children. If you're worried about the graphical content for the child, simply don't let them play. It's a game about the wild west, and it's pretty realistic... BLOOD WILL BE SHED! 

I've learned children are really stubborn. If you tell them not to do something or play something or watch something, it's in their nature to crave and spark enormous interest in doing that specific thing. If the kid really wants to play, and you won't let him/her play, they will most likely find a way to play anyways at a friends house.  

Kids these days! 🤷‍♀️

I have no issues letting my 8 year old and 5 year old watch while I play. To me it is just a game and I had myself very liberal parents that had no problem letting me watch violent movies and such. If I as a parent tells my children that it is just a game and game,movies and such are not real. Then I think they will understand because I remember myself able to understand the difference between fiction and real life at a very early age. 

 

That is not to say that all children are equally good to understand the difference between fiction and real life. But I turned out quite well and I have no doubt that my children will turn out just fine and that watching me playing a game will not harm them in any way. In the end it is all up to how the parent explains things and what behavior and personality the child has. 

 

I would also like to say that none of my friends has any problems with their children watching this game and my friends are not exactly trailer trash. I am myself working as an historian with the Abrahamitic religions and their history as my main focus. My friends are mostly in the same field and I have two brothers whom one is a lawyer and the other one is a soon to be police officer. None of them has any problems playing violent games and letting their children watch. This may be a cultural issue!? I am from Sweden and here, at least in my social circle there is no panic if there is violence or nudity in a movie or a game. Children these days discuss Game of Thrones at school so I am quite certain RDR2 is not such a big deal.

agreed.  My friends and I had a blast playing GTA5 when it came out for hte Xbox One.  My son and their son also played wiht us online.  It's all on the parents to educate and make sure their children know games and movies apart from reality.  

Take a look at the kid that wanted to play GTA5 for real, stole the car and and wrecked 2 others?  that's a parental failure.

I wanna tell you the truth.

I bought the game twice, one for me (im 28) and one for my 12 year old sister.

She loves Gta and played it for about 2 years now.

She doesnt care much about the brutal things. She is more interested on the horse and the things around.

No children of the world will be a "killer" because of a game like this and they can make a distinction rlly well between a game and rl.

Sry for my Bad english, i did my best :D

 

edit: i also played games like doom or other shooter / horror games when i was 10 and i think i got not so much damage from it :D

You did great!

I'd say this all depends on the child more than anything. Some kids are ready for stuff like this at an early age, some might not handle it as well.

I'd definitely say no to online mode though. I know how horrible some people can be there and don't think any 10 year old should be exposed to that. Plus you never know who else is in that server. Could be a bunch of other kids, could be adults yelling profanities, could be some creepy dude that can't tell the difference between a kid's voice and a woman's (I've witnessed that).
