Midnight Club L.A one the top games on my shelf (including split/second and mortal kombat) but it simulates street crimes. First, the violence. In this open world racing game you can free roam, street race (which is hard), buy new cars and get in a car chase (you are the criminal) this is quite fun, but you can ram cars, get in a bad accident (though the driver never appears injured) and it lets you break every traffic law ever (traffic lights, pshh who needs those?) and this being open world, there are civilians but you cant run them over, as they will jump out of the way. Next up, language. While driving, you can flip through radio stations, most of them rap or hip-hop, that use curse words like, f--k, damn, b---h, and n--ga. but you can turn music down or off, but can also turn it up. the music can also be hard to hear while in a car chase or street race. Therefore, it depends on the kid but is best for 11 and up.
