People say that for the fact that TF2 is rated M, only people 17 and up can play the game.
While the "Rated M" routine has always been like that, I personally find TF2 slightly Targted toward younger audiences. The only reason I can find for the fact it's rated M is due to the fact it has blood and gore into it. Set those qualities aside and TF2 could have been rated T instead, but that's not the case.
Besides, TF2 is really funny. Really, just count how many youtube videos feature one or more of heavy's hilarious quotes, you can't, there's way too many.
It seems to me that VALVe had TF2 targeted more to younger audiences which is usually why you see alot of them on this game.
Even if you're still thinking, "this guy is talking bullcrap!", you can simply equip the pyrovsion goggles, which censors all the blood in the game, so your kid doesn't get all that "kill your foes!" and "guns are for evereyone!" kind of thoughts.
The truth is, many people treat TF2 like the COD series (which is definetly NOT for kids!) or some other series related to it.
