If that still doesn't work take this test. It's a great last-ditch method to convince your parents that you are not psyco, even if it's not an actual diagnostic tool, your parents may believe that you are stable enough to play. Good luck!

Oh my god! Either you're 5 years old or just plain stupid!
IT CHANGES EVERYTHING! Many people here are sitting infront of their pcs/laptops in OTHER countries!
THIS maybe for you AMERICA but NOT for all of us, moron! Please sit down before you hurt yourself.
Sorry, I said it as a joke, but somehow other people exaggerated it into... well this.

he didn't grumble or try to go around my back. he listened to me, and waited. there are thousands of other games to play. we didn't fight, just talked it out.
now he can play. we're having a great time talking about it before it comes out. there's no bad blood.

|I'm 14 years old and I have been following GTA extensively sense 2011. I've never been aggressive and I have no desire to shoot someone in the face but my parents are CONVINCED that violent video games alter people's minds and make them want to commit crimes. Now we as GTA gamers know this is untrue. Please share insight on your experiences with GTA when you were younger and tell me what I should do. Should I save up my money and have my friend buy it for me? Thanks and ALL help is greatly appreciated|
Ask a friend who is already getting it, to pick you up a copy and pay them back ASAP?
and on the topic of Age rating I have to say IMO it's all about maturity.

Your best bet is to maybe give them a logical argument about it, my dad wasn't to keen on GTA when I started actively playing at 12 (Played my first time when I was 10 really got into it at 12), but I told him straight up, it's no diffrent than a movie, or other violent video games, and hell most of the time I'm either just doing stupid things like driving my $100,000 sports car off of a mountain, or enjoying the story rather than going on massive inocent person killing sprees. He knew that I was mature enough to handle it and didn't really care, granted I think his main concern was I'd spend to much time playing it and become anti-social but gaming did the oposite for me, granted at times I do get a bit heavy on the playing part lol.
If that dosen't work your best bet is to wait, try again with the discussion part, and if it dosen't work wait some more maybe.
Well that's what the responsible person in me would say, what I would do is borrow it from a friend (which is how I beat VC and San Andreas my first times actually) and play it when they aren't arround/won't notice, or play it at a friends, I mean spend the night and crash their and play GTA all night.
Good luck with it and like Brandonn96 it's more about maturity than it is age, so prove to your parents you're mature (NOTE: If you get caught doing the irresponsible sneaking method, it will hurt your cause man, use it as a last resort) and that you can handle it and that video games don't breed violence but what does is people with disorders that would have likely found that spark somewhere else anyways.

|You started playing GTA in 2011?? You dont deserve to play it.|
He was twelve then. You expect him to read about it on the internet at the age of four?
