Although, once TOR is released lots of people will be able to say they shot first, it's a Gunslinger ability and I really wonder how it works...

A 4 years old Yoda fans!

I think that Star Wars is really popular with the younger crowd. I wonder how many people will play TOR with their kids.

So I am looking for a little advice, or at least food for thought. My son is 11 he should be 12 around release. If they stick to spring 2011. He has told me multiple times he wants to play a trooper. I am trying to decide if I will let him play or not. He has never played an mmorpg before. He has however played KOTOR and loved it. I would love to play an mmo with him. As I have said before I am a fairly casual gamer. I believe this would be a great time for us. I am worried about the mmo experience as a whole which is part of the reason for becoming involved at RIG. What do you guys think? Is 12 to young? Should I go for it?
I had some really great times playing DAOC and vanilla WOW. Recently I have been less interested though. It could be a lot of fun though too. Somewhat conflicted

12 is a good age, my nephew is 10 and plays mmo games. TV has just as much bad language as a mmo society. This generation of kids hear everything earley. Before you allow him to play, test out game first, find a mature group of adults that care about the well being of other ppls wishes meaning cuss words, ect. Then maybe take small steps to see if they can handle it... I would not rush, but my opinion 12 is almost a teenager..

I don't see why not Smile He wouldn't be the youngest, I'm sure. And 12 isn't too young. I think he'll have a great time and definatly a good thing you're in the same MMO to make sure he's experiencing the best a game has to offer. Should he meet the random bad player, you'd know how to deal with it and could explain to him how people can be stupid much like in real life.

I say, go for it Smile

I don't see a problem as long as you're an active father in his life on MMO's as well, which I'm sure you are.

So, sounds ok to me.

Like the others said 12 years old isn't that young, although you need to make sure to support him (make sure he doesn't take bad habits).

The one thing I would be concerned with is the game addiction factor. It is a reality of these games though not like the idiot conservatives protray it as. I've found myself playing mmos more than I intended simply because I wanted to hang out with my in-game friends. This is fine imo so long as it doesn't take the place of RL which can become a possibility. My recommendation on that point would be to limit the amount of hours your kids can play a day. RL friends are more important for a child's development than in-game ones.

Thanks everyone! Good info. I am leaning towards letting him play. I think some solid ground rules will need to be in place first though.

A very good idea, and like I said...it sounds like you're definitely wanting to be involved and knowledgeable of what he actually does while gaming, or how long he would or how often. Sounds like you've got it under control.

With our four month old we are going to set rules for TV in his first two years - ie. not much if any at all. Then gradually little bits as he gets older, carefully monitoring what, when and how much he watches.

So I guess when I get my son into gaming it'll be the same principle and definitely so with MMOs. He will only play when I play and he won't be doing much soloing to start with.

Then the older he gets or at least the more capable then I will gradually start to let go a little. Just my two creds worth.

I agree with Lewg there,

I had never played an MMO before SWG launch in 2003, and, I ended up getting so hooked that I was playing 10 hours a day at times! I was 31 at the time, the owner of a dj company, and a military vet...so...if can happen to me, it DEFINITELY can happen to a much more impressionable 12 year old. I would just recommend caution. Maybe "play hour(s)" for him?? Not trying to tell you anything at all. Just offering suggestions Smile

Hope that helps ya a bit Smile
