Are there many kids playing this game?

Sometimes in the end game chat, the only explanation I have for what I read is that I'm talking to 12 years old (or maybe 16, its not like there is much of a difference)

    I wouldn't know about how appropriate it is on a purely artistic point of view. (My threshold is a bit too high)

    It doesn't feel kid-friendly though.

    Children / teens play every videogame. People in end game chat could be kids, mentally compromised adults, people who are intoxicated, tripping on edibles, salty, from vastly different cultures, trolling, baiting, etc.

    There are lots of reasons for people to say things we'd think are strange.

    Yes huge portion of players are what 12-16 years old. My cousin and bro who play with me are 16 and 15 and my little sis is 13. But lot of full grown mans play too and my counsin has gotten some salty messages from them which is sad. He is killer main and sometimes camp so survivors mains get bit too upset about that. It's just game everyone can play however they want and makes them happy and it's devs desicion to make camping less viable stragedy.

    Kids play all types of games. No doubt they play dbd as well.

    I think kids definitely play dbd, but don't put young adults of 18-25 out of your minds spectrum. I'm 23 and I've met a lot of teens who are 16-17 maybe even 15 doing work experience or seasonal work like Christmas staff in my job. We are a lot closer than you think. Not much changes between 15-25. Especially if you're from the UK and Ireland or North America. We are EXACTLY the same unless you're an old soul who's beyond mature for your age.

    I had better and more mature conversations with a 17 year old girl still in school than guys and girls in their 20s like me to the point I thought she was 22 until she told me otherwise much to my shock.

    Id also like to think I'm a very mature person, I often get told I am mature as well. Idk where your from, but I'm Irish and let me tell you from my experience young adults acting like total morons on a videogame end chat doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

    And while I don't ever initiate a toxic exchange on a game, there are times when I do fire back and engage in it myself but only in response I just don't walk away sometimes. That **** isn't to do with age sometimes. It's just who they are as a person and it won't change regardless of age.

    Loads of different age groups play the game, everyone of them can be an ass on Post Game chat.

    Yesterday I was berated for using Noed, they told me I was a terrible player and when I pushed back and said it was non of their business what perks I use and how I play, they told me I was a terrible person too. Like I dont ask for Perk feedback, who asked?

    i even had persons in my chat before my game started, that said "i smell" and they want me to leave because of that.

    The only issue I have is when a disagreement or argument of any kind stirs and some of them start using the "I'm a minor" card to defend themselves... like ok?

  • SimfelizSimfeliz Member Posts: 2,028

    No doubt kids do play but I have no doubt a lot of stupid comments are made by fully grown adults.

  • Thusly_BonedThusly_Boned Member Posts: 1,331

    Yeah, if you feel like you have to use an excuse for your bad behavior, then you know better and don't really have one.

  • WormMilkWormMilk Member Posts: 118

    Absolutely. I got my 13 year old sister to start playing sometime during quarantine so I think she was around 12. She plays with some of her friends that are around her age too.

  • YordsYords Member Posts: 5,746

    Absolutely, but I would be willing to bet that there are more young adults acting like children than actual children playing this game lol.

    I’m sure CMWinter would like to know.

    For school, of course..

    Maybe some children play yeah.

    The sad reality though is that probably more often than you'd like to believe, it really is 25+ year old manchildren bitching at you in endgame chat.

  • bm33bm33 Member Posts: 6,642

    In FB groups I've seen people say they let their kids under 10 play DBD. Alot say they'll have their kids play to drop rank, especially as killer, or to have them grind rift.

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 5,583

    Quite a few. A huge portion of the comp scene is under 18 and can't actually get paid for wins.

  • Ghouled_MojoGhouled_Mojo Member Posts: 1,844

    I have underwear with more maturity than some of the player base.

  • AnneBonnyAnneBonny Member Posts: 1,767

    i would imagine the majority of the game's playerbase is under 18 tbh

  • GreyBigfootGreyBigfoot Member Posts: 713

    The game has gone free on multiple occasions, and goes on sale often. It's a guarantee that there's some.

    As someone who has used the xbox group finder I have played in a kill your friends with someone who I think was either 9 years old or using a voice changer
