The access becomes irrelevant if the games are legal.
Even legal, the games are still over-18 and kept a bit outside easy access of those younger. Things have gotten stricter so from what I understand they do check your age when you buy. So the chance of a kid under 18 just stumbling upon one and being able to buy it is fairly low.
If they are over 18, then it doesn`t really matter. As long as my kid has the capability to distinguish between fantasy and reality, who am I to stand in the way? And even if they WEREN`T able to figure out that it was a fantasy and not something they should do in real life, it would be my responsibility to keep them from having access - not a reason to ban something.
It`s sort of like saying that alcohol should be banned because some parents don`t want their kids to drink it even if they`re of legal drinking age.
