    Yes I think it's ok, you don't need to play online for this game.

    I'd say no, or under supervision. But I'd wait till 11 or 12. It depends on the kid tho. If the kid has loads of other good influences and it does other things as well, then I'd say yes under supervision.

    I decided that he's only allowed to play single player. So now he builds bases and breeds dino's. Basically like minecraft with dinosaurs...

    I don't think he is old enough for the online experience....

    @six-shooter I didn't know you had this game too. Why did you never join us?

    That's exactly what I meant :)

    I rarely have any time to play other games, I mainly play Fallout 4, BF4 and sometimes another game. And I have my own ARK-server with some other friends.

    Let him play on single player or maybe on a server with friends but not on the public, sadly most of these survival games have a very toxic on-line presence, the language can colourful at best, there's usually large groups around who think nothing of smashing little guys bases over and over.


    explains why you've played less than an hour of it...
