Both sides of the argument have merit.
>The kid spent too much ******* time with video games, it's clear by his farse ideas about playing games for a living.
>The dad should have gone about getting rid of the games in a less-permanent way.

Yeah but playing video games for a living could include Beta-Tester or YouTube Star like the Yogscast or Pewdiepie even Tobuscus. It is possible.

Even so what right has his dad got to effectively destroy someone else's stuff.
If I broke my parents TV I'd get a quick trip to the cop shop.

1. Becoming a gaming celebrity should not be an aspiration because it is not common and therefore not practical. Really it wouldn't be so bad if there was an established backup. Like, "If I don't start to pick up steam on my youtube within the next couple of months, im going to stop and go to college" but that was obviously nowhere in this kids agenda.

2. The dad technically has no rights to do it. However should the kid sue the dad in small claims court for the value of the games, all the dad would really need to do is counter-sue for back-rent of the 3 months he was living under his roof. Even if the counter-suit got thrown out and the kid won the case. ************* thats tops 200-300 bucks at current market value. Throw the kid 3 benjamins and tell him good ******* luck getting a start as a professional gamer when he now has bills to worry about. Also toss him his suit-case of **** and wave goodbye.

(While obviously no rational loving parent would have the heart to throw their kid out on the street like that. You bet your ass the kid wouldn't be allowed to use ANY electrical outlet for an electronic device. Eventually though, the dam's gonna break and the parent is gonna kick the kid the **** out, happened to two of my older brothers.)

Well me (19) and my mum (47) are both gamers and while I agree there should be some backup plan I don't believe you should crush someone's dreams. And even if that kid eventually realises that his dreams are ****** the parent should always be there to catch and support them.
You don't stop becoming a parent just cos your kids reached a certain age.
