I work at a small used game/movie/cd store called "Pre-Played" it's incredible amounts of fun and I too enjoy watching mothers freak out when I tell them why their 8 year old wants a copy of MWF3, plus it means someone doesn't buy MWF3 and that too is just beautiful.

Privilege? Sir, it's my JOB! I mean MY JOB! If a consumer, the parent not the child, as kid's without jobs pay for, and therefore support, NOTHING. The PARENT is supporting the industry NOT THE CHILD! So if I feel as though it's interesting to note the M rating of a game, especially when I find out it's for their 8 year old, it's not only my privilege, it's my duty. Hows about I mention the fact that I also usually recommend something more child friendly like battlefield as it has a less "seedy" player community. As well as the fact that it's already been proven most modern gamers are over 20 years old, meaning that even if all those little bratty **** bags stopped getting games that WERE NOT MADE FOR THEM TO HAVE, the industry would soldier on anyway. Furthermore who the hell are you to tell me my privilege? If a game is notably violent, bloody, and not made for kids, how is it not a right to say so? It's a personal observation backed up by the fact the game is rated for 17+ MATURE audiences. If I've been part of it's online community long enough to know that not all of those who play online are using child safe language and often bring up very graphic and adult situations out of frustration or amusement it's again my RIGHT to say so. Fifa isn't an M rated title, kids come up to buy it all the time and that's fine. I'm talking about the brats who walk in and say "I want $____ to spend!" and then proceed to throw a tantrum when their parents say "No!". You speak as though me denying one little **** his second hand copy of Call of Duty, the profits of which don't benefit the gaming industry anyway you tard, is going to kill Infinity Ward. YOU sir, are what's killing the game industry, with your idiotic and unbased fear of "WE NEED MORE SALES NO MATTER WHAT!"... I'd recommend you have a nice tall glass of Calm The **** down, and chase it with a small shot of SHUT THE **** UP!

I once was playing Black Ops, with some annoying ass 12 year old on my team who just would shut the **** UP.
I rant on him. HARD. And I don't let up. Not letting the little cunt get a word in, as i explain to him that he needs to get off the damn game because he is not of age, I go for the entire match, the lobby, the match after that. Until eventually he says "he's gonna get tell his dad on me"
And I laugh as he goes and gets him, and the father gets on the headset, and asks me why I'm yelling at his kid.
I then proceed to rant how he is a terrible father for letting his kid play it, for another 20 or so minutes. Eventually the father realizes how ******* stupid he is and they left the lobby.
I had never felt so proud. I then proceeded to get a drink because an hour and a half of ranting on kids is tiring.

I work retail, and the other day a kid around maybe 12 or 13 tried to convince me to sell him a copy of GTAV. When I told him he had to have his parents with him he disappeared, clearly upset I would not take him on his word. He returned later, however, with a parental unit in tow. It was obvious to me right away mom could not speak English. She just kept nodding at me, smiling all goofy. The kid was translating my words into Spanish for her the whole time, but I had a hunch whatever he was telling her was not the same thing I was trying to get across.

So I grabbed a bilingual coworker who happened to be walking by to explain it better to the mom. The expression on her face as she was informed what GTAV was really about was nearly as priceless as the kid's when he realized he'd been found out. That mom freaked out so hard on her son she dragged him by his ear .

The truth is that as soon as you reach the age to buy a video game like GTA V and have the ID to buy it, you notice all the people that want to buy the game and are too young.

And it's ******* hilarious

I don't have a problem with parents who buy M rated games for their kids, so long as they're actually ******* responsible and understand their own ******* kids and whether or not they are mature enough to handle playing it, and unfortunately that isn't particularly common. I got GTA4 when I was 15 because I knew the difference between video games and reality and didn't go online just to curse about things I did to people's mothers.

Incidentally, it irritates me when parents say they'll get the kid the game without even knowing what it is and then go back on the promise.   
If you say you're going to get it, get it. If you're not okay with buying it, don't, but don't tell your kid you're going to without even knowing what it is. Even if you find out at the store, if you already told the kid you were getting it and you're at the goddamn register, at least compromise. Make a rule, he can only play it with you in the room so you can explain things and whatnot.   
But do 						*******					 not get the kid's hopes up for like three days, take his excited little face to the store, take the freaking game right to the register, and right as the kid is about to get the game, take it back and not allow them to get it even though generally speaking the kid did nothing wrong. You're punishing the kid for your failure to look into the product you promised them.

That happened to me when God of War II came out. I was 10 and my mom said no.   
Looking back I'm glad she did.

I was a Customer Service Manager for a while and one day a cashier called me over for assistance. A 13 year old kid was trying to buy GTA 4, and when we said he was too young, he pulled out a note (that he obviously wrote) that said &quot;Let my son buy this game. I approve. -Mom&quot;   
   
Mfw I told him no again.

My mum bought GTA V for my little brother and was shocked when she saw him kill old ladies and take their cars. (He only ever went after the old ladies.)
She even overheard him talking to my older brother saying "I make 9 million a week selling drugs." I laughed when she told me since she also bought the other GTA games and even COD and several other games like that. She'd never watched him play them before.

Witnessed this last Saturday when I was picking up my shiny palkia. The mother was moments from buying the game for her son who was no more than 10, but then the cashier explained the game to the mother. I got to physically watch the joy drain out of this kid's face as he realized he was no longer getting the game. priceless

I got to say, I'm 13 years old, and my dad doesn't really care that much about GTA V. I got it on Friday, almost completed the game

But it's not that he doesn't care about my well-being, it's just that he's the most chill guy ever. 54 years old, and we go out on errands all the time, and this badass can pick up any girl he wants. Comes up with the best pickup lines ever, and makes me proud. We talk about all sorts of stuff, and he doesn't care what I do (super strict on drugs/alcohol though, even though I'd never want to do 'em anyway) as long as I get straight A's. He's the best guy I've ever known.

Oh, and by the way, he's not like some ghetto-ass 54 year old. He's a stand-up fellow who works hard for his money. Has a great job, 4 fully paid houses, and a few cars, and still humble enough to say he's not rich. He loves to wear suits and ties... haha.

He gives to any charities he can, he gives to the church, and he always keeps my confidence up.

Say what you want, say "Gayyyyyyyyyyyyy" or anything else. I don't care. My dad is amazing.

tl;dr My dad is pretty freakin' cool.

people like minnesotaburns on youtube whose video's consists of constantly trolling little kids need to die, they dont deserve the amount the amount of subscriber's they have. it's funny at first, but then it gets too repetitive. it's also pretty ironic because most of there subscriber's are also in age groups 9-13

For every time a parent doesn't buy GTA V for their kid, 50 parents tell me "It's nothing they don't see at school!"


What kind of school are you letting your ******* kids go .?
