"Only 36% of parents check game age ratings"

A survey from Playr2.com has claimed that as many as 36 per cent of parents check the age restrictions of games their children are playing.

Of that 36 per cent, 55 per cent claimed that in their opinion age restriction on games didn’t matter”. 51 per cent of the respondents said they would not be concerned if their children were playing 18-rated titles.

Curiously, when asked the same question about movies, 54 per cent said they would be concerned if their kids watched 18-rated films.

Additionally, 61 per cent of parents rejected the idea that games could negatively affect childrens’ behaviour.

The site surveyed 1,221 parents who have kids under the age of 17 that regularly play games.
