LMAO @ all these idiots telling him to play a different game and listen to his parents. Hypocrisy at it's finest. Everyone ha splayed GTA when they were younger, I myself have been playing GTA since I was 8-9 and my first GTA was GTA III.
No, I know it seems easy to say like that, but it's still the right thing to do no matter how you put it. I can understand that it is fustrating, I know that me, at his age, I could play GTA. But, he can't. And even if he's whining about not being able to play and no matter how hard he tries to persuade them, this is not going to help. So I don't see how is it hypocrite to tell him what would be the best for him insted of trying to help him in the wrong way.
Little edit: For example, I know it is a bit dramatic but it's still similar. Would it be selfish to refuse to give someone money so he can take drugs? If you put it in your version, yes, it is. You're not helping him getting what he wants, you do not understand why he wants some. But if you put it realisticly, you help him, you are thinking about what is the best for him so that's why you're not giving it to him. You know that there is no point doing that, it doesn't really help anyone.
Well, it's similar here, ok you give him the game or you give him hints so he could maybe get to play the game. Playing the game isn't a bad thing after all. But, the parents don't want to let him play so how do you think they're going to react once they find out? Yeah that's right, it's going to be some serious sh*t. And what will happen if he tries those feble attempts to make his parents let him play the game? Simple, they will still refuse and the more he tries, the more tired will be the parents and do you know what happens when parents arew tired? Consequences. You see? I took the time to think a hell lot more than you when I wrote my post than when you did so who's the hypocrite now?
