    Well if both you and your partner are happy for your five year old to be playing halo, then who are we to say? Only you can decide what's best for your family.

    Personally with my own child, if I see a stimulus affecting her behaviour then I nip it in the bud. For example, my daughter can't play games on school nights or it makes her crazy the next day. If she eats ice cream she goes into overload and hyped up.

    If you're not seeing adverse behaviour or any other issues that give you cause for concern then dont worry about. But please take into account how things that kids see influence them far greater when they are young and the things that you expose them to shapes them as they grow. You can't be there all the time to watch them all of the time and you'll never know if or when they might decide to reenact some battle or scene from the game at playtime and hurt some other child.
