    So I read the FAQ a few minutes ago and noticed that under 18's aren't allowed into 18+ areas- which is completely acceptable but even with a parent/ guardian over the age of 18? I've been to one gaming event before- GAMEfest which allowed under aged people into 18+ areas with an adult/guardian over the age of 18. Was that just an acception? Is any of this negotiable- as other events have allowed it with a parent/guardian over the age.

    Under 30s at the Expo? Madness.
  • Deleted user 22 September 2012 00:12:56
    It's actually 90% of the expo that's over 18s only. It's so that a large number of children are left alone in the 'ecosse' zone.

    Enter at your own risk.

    If under 30's weren't allowed in, it wouldn't decrease the numbers by that much to be honest. You'll see lots of the young uns early on, then the next thing you know it's like you're surrounded by a Question Time audience :o

    They should have 30+ games featuring mortgage simulators and virtual Nintendo zimmer frames :D

    Nobody would question this if it was, say, an 18 plus rated film (that is being able to go into a cinema and watch an adult rated film) but gaming?

    If he's cool we could sneak him in, get him drunk and he'd wake up at razz's :D

    I'm quite a tall 16 year old and have no problem getting pass as one, but it's the ID which is a real bitch. Don't understand that GAMEfest allowed it and Eurogamer doesn't. Getting alcohol is easier than this! Different laws/ insurances are probably the reason why....

    Lats years booth babes were a bit raunchy even for 18+ audiences. The shemale especially.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    @IamaRand0mGuy Since GAMEfest, there has been a change in legislation which places a legal requirement on retailers of 18 rated games so I'd imagine the same applies to publishers/event organisers but no doubt Venatio can clarify this.

    Don't worry son, I'm told that the new Peppa Pig game offers a rich and compelling gameplay experience.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    @Ignatius_Cheese Well that real sucks. It's those few little kids who take video games too seriously which let the side down.

    @IamaRand0mGuy what are you on about?? Content in the over 18 section is classed as adult content and therefore no one is letting anyone down. it's a case of the footage shown is NOT SUTABLE for persons under the age of 18.

    It doesn't matter if you are a mature 16 yr old or look over 20, someone alot smarter then us decided that showing extreame violence or sexual referance can leave a lasting impression on a young mind and therefore they should wait until they mature before they are subjugated to it

    I thought they were there to prevent accidental kiddy fiddling. Anyone in the area is fair game, without the worry of sexy kids.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    I'd play it, as long as you can play as Daddy Pig.

    Maybe you could find another like minded soul and stand on each others shoulders in a trench coat and fake beard?

    @Afiddes That wasn't the case at GAMEfest- If you were accompanied by an adult you were allowed in- Just wondering if that was the case here.... Also everyone is different- Just because a kid had chronic skitz because of a video game doesn't mean other kids will. I drink alcohol and I'm not 18- Why am I not dead? People mature at different ages. That 18+ band is just an "average"

    @IamaRand0mGuy

    No that band of 18+ is a law! With regards to drinking alcohol your body is still growing and the toxins in alcohol affect that growth (It is also easier. To get drunk and addicted) hence being illogical to do under 18. Also the fact you don't understand 18+ only proves that drinking alcohol at your age has affected your ability to think

    I wish Skyrim had been in the 18 + area last year as then I wouldn't have had to witness a teenager teabag everything he killed. Repeatedly.
