Option to Block Violent Content/ Ads:
This would be a swell idea for children under the age of 13, people with PTSD or people with mental disorders (suicidal).
There should be some sort of content filter. I'm actually shocked in this day and age something like this isn't legally mandated...
This is ridiculous. First of all, this helmet is not for children under 13 years of age. It is described in the wording. And which normal would allow the mentally ill to wear a helmet?
This product should not be used by children under the age of 13,
as the headset is not sized for children and improper sizing can
lead to discomfort or health effects, and younger children are
in a critical period in visual development.

I don't intend to embarrass or defame Oculus, I just think it would be prudent to give people the OPTION to not be exposed to gratuitous violence every time they fire-up Oculus... It is no exaggeration to say that every other game deals with the rather morbid theme of DEATH... Do the developers at Oculus not understand the power of subliminal suggestion, particularly when one is in a vulnerable state of mind? There have been lawsuits over content/ ads that are far less suggestive than this... 'Freedom of speech' and 'freedom of choice' should go hand and hand. Someone has the right to express themselves anyway they want, but we also have the LEGAL right to not have to hear or see it if we so choose...
