Appropriate Response to Inappropriate Video Games?

Question

Our 8-year-old son is seeing kids play graphic video games on portable gaming units. The most recent title was “Call of Duty,” with which we are familiar. We talked about the violence and realism of such games and contrasted it with other games that we play together, like “Cooking Fever,” but I feel like our explanation was a bit too long and a bit over his head. Do you have some talking points aimed at an 8-year-old that might help us be more succinct and to the point on why those games aren’t appropriate for kids his age, even though his peers are playing? Thanks in advance.
