Hah i'd buy this for my 13 year old kid (if i had one, but still).
I had loads of fun playing GTA 1 and 2 when i was 10-11 years old. Actually bought GTA 1 and 2 in a pack with a steering wheel for the PS1 (well my dad did after i insisted on it). No way that i'd let my son miss out on such an experience.
I trust my capability to teach my son right and wrong enough to give him all the violent games he wants. If i forbid it he's going to look for it behind my back anyway (like i did with my parents), and i won't be there to awnser his questions since he'll be avoiding me. I love playing games myself, i'll buy 2 copies and make a father-son activity of it.
It's not like i'll hit him with mortal combat right off the bat. It takes 13 years to become 13 years old. I'll bet he's killed alot of Orcs and Goblins by then (but you'll never hear society about that since their "evil").
If he likes violent games at all. I've got a kid sister who plays a heck of alot of games just like me, but none of them are violent. She doesn't enjoy violence. She rather likes to take care fo virtual pets, or play theme park games (don't think she isn't competative. Just not violent).
But as far as i'm concirned, keeping games away from kids due to some sort of arbitrary age limit some people far away who never even see *their* kids have decided, *is* the bad parenting. By that logic you should go outside and stop your kids from playing cops and robbers or cowboys and indians (i'm just old enough to have experienced the pre-computer era activities, so don't think i don't know). And take away their super soakers. Afterall those are activities mimicing violence, with actual real life consequences (kids hurt themselves while playing, my parents say there wasn't a day that went by where i wasn't covered in bruises and scratches).
If being a good parent means stuffing your children full of ritalin so they stay safe in a corner not moving any muscles for the entire day so they can grow obese.... I'd prefer to be a really, really bad parent.

I like you, I like this attitude it is the same way I work with my niece and nephew (don't have kids yet). Kids are gonna find this stuff whether you want them too or not but without you knowing they will have no one to answer questions which can lead to problems later on. Good parenting is not based on a child being given a game with violence or not, it is based on what you have done overall and what you have taught your child, teach them to do right and no violent game will harm them (mental disability not withstanding).
