By Strong Sexual Content, what do they mean? Are there merely hookers with limited interactions, or does it escalate up to God of War's bed-shaking minigame? I'd appreciate it if you guys were pretty specific.

And what body parts are to be shown in "Partial Nudity"? If it's too explicit, just PM me.

Both of these are important, so any help would be appreciated.

It basically means if you play the game you get arrested for peadophilliation (SP?) choose your options carefully..

peadophilliation is a snappy word.

Kinda like... WHAM!

Oh, and if you thought Hot Coffee was bad, wait until you see "Hottest Coffee in NYC"
I don't think I even need to explain that one to you...

From what I understand it involves a giraffe, a Hungarian government official, two futons, and more leather than you've ever seen in your life.

Well I am 14, and I have played all up from GTA 1 to GTA:SA, and most of them said sexual content, but that might be just from the car shaking when you get a ho, or because you can go to the strip clubs and sit down while they dance in front of you, you don't really see people banging or anything like that.

From past experiences with various titles, in fact all except London, I will say that they are much more intense then the original titles before GTA3. That being said, it's you decision. I haven't noticed much of a change between 3 and San Andreas as far as the content goes. Assuming it will be much like the games from 3 - San Andreas, I'd say it's next to harmless for a 10 year old to play. Note that I'm not a video-game rating Nazi, and I think on a more realistic scale than many video-game critics and lawyers go. It's really up to the individual consumer as to what is appropriate for themselves, and what they believe is appropriate for others.

I figured you'd know more of the rules, and have enough common sense to not post this in two different forum sections.

Beggars can't be choosers though.

Should have definitely only been posted in the GTA: IV section.

LMFAO!!!!! To be honest I would let my 10 year old son (if I had one) simply because I wouldn't want him to know about dealing drugs and stuff like that. To the main question I think it is stuff like prostitutes walking around and they can jump in your car but I wouldn't be worried about that when the game is based on dealing drugs and killing people.
Peace.

Sorry bro, but at the time of posting the GTA forum was basically dead. Besides, this is the "Games" forum.

As for a 10 year old, it depends on the kid. You know your brother/son better than any expert or rating system.
As for the sex, I think Niko goes into strip clubs, checks out the wonderful world of internet doctors telling you who to have sex with (online dating), goes on romantic evenings with girls, and I think much of it will be full of punchy, inappropriate dialogue. Perfect for a young man learning how to treat women.
I am more concerned about something I remember from way back in the March of '07 when Niko says "I've Killed people, smuggled people, sold people." So we may be dealing with human trafficking and other stuff that is way beyond what a ten year old can handle.
