Target Recommends Parents Buy Kids M Rated Video Games For Easter

Do you give or receive gifts for Easter? I was unaware of the tradition until my wife introduced it to me several years ago. Until then, Easter was about going to Grandma's house and taking part in an Easter egg hunt. The eggs were a mixture of colored boiled eggs and plastic candy-and-money-filled eggs. But apparently people do give gifts on Easter and Target is hoping parents will shop there.

Not only do they want parents to shop there, but its latest ad has recommendations for gifts parents can buy their children, one of which is the M rated FPS Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Of course it is completely up to the parents to decide what games they buy for their kids, but usually that is left to the parents to decide on their own. For Target to recommend an M rated game seems …odd. 

So what do you think? Is this a perfectly valid recommendation or is it a potential sticking point for concerned watchdog groups?
