The Poor Kid just wants to play a Video Game.

At least he's not getting into drugs and alcohol.

 

 

When I was growing up, I remember a couple "bad apples" would sneak their parents Alcohol and Cigarettes at 13. Get thrown in Juvy, on probation etc... All this kid wants is a game.

 

A violent, sexual content, mature video game is no different then the music these kids are listening to/watching on youtube, itunes.

 

If you really want the game, do it the oldschool way. Stand out in front of the store with some cash and have an older teen or college kid buy it for you.

 

Just don't let Mom and Pop catch you playing it. Stick to gaming and stay out of real trouble. You'll be fine kid.. Good luck.

How do you convince your parents to buy you a game that is not rated for your age?

You ask this from a bunch of sociopathic strangers about a game where robbing banks, shooting cops, and killing hookers is the norm...

Us... the people who are having fun doing all that...

Advice from us...

"Excuse me,sir... yes... you with hockey mask, holding the axe in one hand and the severed puppy head in the other... could you give me a ride to school... I'm running late..."

Ooooook...

 

Since you are a very mature 13, I suppose you are probably very wise in the ways of the world... thusly you'll probably have a shot a pulling some of these off...

 

1- Wear a fake mustache and talk in deeper voice, show up at your dad's job and convince him you are his new boss and that he should buy you the game or he'll be fired.

 

2- Wear a long wig and a dress and talk in a higher pitched voice. Show up at your house when your mom is home... convince her you are an old friend she went to school with and how great her life has been because her ( the friend you are pretending to be) parents bought her lots of inappropriate video games when she was your age and how you'll  turn out to be an outcast if she doesn't do the same for you.

 

3- Wear a dog costume and pretend to be the family dog, who thanks to a magical spell can now talk... convince them the spell allows you to grant them one wish as long as they grant their kid one wish... (that wish should be they buy you the game)... make sure you study how Scooby Doo talks first, his is the most accurate talking dog voice.

 

4- Throw an old sheet over you (for added effect you can use glow-in-the-dark spray paint on it) and in the middle of the night wake your parents up claiming to be a pissed off ghost , using your most creepy, spooky voice tell them you will haunt them unless they get their kid that game... it may help to play loud scary music too.

 

5- This one is a little more elaborate... pretend to get sick and then get yourself hospitalized, make sure whatever your ailment is, it requires your head to be bandaged up, then get your buddy to switch places with you and when your parents come to visit, you dress up as a doctor... using a fake german accent tell them you have only one chance to be cured but it involves you playing GTA V for at least 3 weeks straight.

 

6- Have yourself frozen in carbonite until you are 32, by then you'll still only be 13 , but  GTA 6 will have just come out and also by then your parents will be older and more senile and thus easier to convince using the above methods.

 

7- Hire a homeless guy to pretend to be "You from the Future", and have him convince your parents that the only way to avoid a nuclear war where killer robots take over the world, is to buy you GTA V so you'll be ready when that day comes and you'll be able to single handedly overt the destruction of the world.

 

These methods have been proven highly successful in many instances, and have rarely led to incarceration, evisceration or constipation... I suggest you give all of them a try, but allow at least 30 minutes between each attempt, so as to allow your parents to forget the previous costume/character etc...

 

Good luck.

Ever since the release of GTA  5 I have been asking my parents to let me get gta 5 and they have said no. I think it is mainly because of the sexual content and Nudity, I have been saying that because its a sandbox game you don't have to go anywhere near to any of that and I think I would mainly use gta to play online anyway. All of my friends have it as well and I'm coming up to 13, but I'm sensible and a mature 13 year old. I can tell the difference between real life stuff and video game stuffs. How can I persuade my parents further to let me get the game I would sacrifice all my other games to get?

Thanks in advance! :-)

You have good parents that care about you. Also don't try to grow up too fast little man, ask almost any adult when their best times in life were.

   Most would say when they were young and care free.

i played gta way back when i was 11-12.. it helped me learn english and i obviously haven't turned into a serial killer..

 

 

either convince them it's just like pacman with guns and that nudity is no issue, you could just watch some porn if you wanted to see that.. or buy it with your own money and tell them to suck it like a normal 13 year old would these days

It's a pretty fun game, but I think it will mess you up if you're still in stable condition as it is. There willl be a much better gaming experience when your older anyway...this game will look like NFS or something to that effect by the time you're 17.

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?

 

I'm a hypocrite? You making me f*cking laugh.

 

Not really, but you just didn't think proprely before sending that post of yours, nor you really thought about posting this one.

Ok, I feel you but I'm serious with you.

 

I think there's no need in crying to your parents about that. GTAV isn't as great as you might think it is - yes I thought so too after watching tons of videos on youtube but then, the moment I finally started playing the game by myself I realized that it's nothing but a letdown.

 

If I can advice you something. Get another game from Rockstar - if you haven't already I can really advice you to get Bully (for PS2) or Bully Scholarship Edition (for Xbox 360, PC or Wii)

I remember back in 2003 I was a bully 8-year old kid at school, so that I told them how Video Games let you lose your angriness and so that i played VC with no problem!

The only problem was that I told my friends about the freedom in that nice game and in less than a week me and all my friends were acting like Tommy! :lol: Then one of my friends said this game has another version named "III" and...!! After playing GTA III the middle finger became way more important for us and so that the school warned us about playing "Violent and Explicit games which ruin our minds"!

However when I wanted IV i was just like you! A 13 boy who had became mature ( GTA helped me becoming mature sooner! :lol: ) i told them it's JUST A GAME, and that I've played Vice City a lot, so why I'm not a murderer?! After giving a speech like that, they found themselves promising me to buy it if I get 100/100 in math!

We have this same issue with my kid bro who is 10 years old. He constantly asks why he can't have this game.

 

The reason is simple. Your young and impressionable, and your brain still acts as a sponge unlike most adults. You don't need to have this type of garbage impacting your consciousness, I've noticed that todays society of children clearly have not properly developed an imagination.

 

kids your age should be outside from after getting off the bus, til dinner time. Have fun with friends OUTDOORS. or do things PRODUCTIVE indoors. You have your whole life to play games like GTA 5 and when your older, even more grisely and obnoxious stuff due to technology.

 

Maybe your parents, like mine, said no to you because they want you to properly enjoy your childhood since you only get to be young once.

 

embrace it dude.

Ugh, your parents are the over protective, ditzy type. I don't think you can change their minds. My dad let me play GTA when I was 12 because he knew I've been doing it for years behind his back. My mom never had actually cared to be honest, she was just like "Oooh" a few times because she knew we weren't supposed to play it according to dad.

I honestly don't get those parents that don't allow there kids to play these games even if they're 15. 10, I can understand, but over 12 and still not letting your kid play these games? What the f*ck, do they think they're kids retarded or something? I guess some parents just have weak stomachs and are too dense to realize when a kid kills a guy in a game, they're just killing pixals.

I mean just look at this fool K1NG CURTIS. He thinks kids' minds stay like a f*cking 8 year old until they're 17, how much are you willing to bet? At K1NG CURTIS, no offense to your parenting if you're not bullsh*tting, but your points are utter crap, get real. We're not in the 90's anymore.

Also, why the hell are you on a video gaming forum if you're a parent. Why are you calling this game garbage when you're on the forum for it? People like you annoy me, just stop posting.

Dude really? Can't be a parent and post and a forum for a game ( in this case the whole series) that you love? I'm 28 with and have a child. I was playing gta 1 when I was 13 and other games too so I know how this kid feels. You can be a parent and still remember what it was like to be a kid.

Maybe because my parents were a bit older and had more to worry about than what games I was playing on whatever system I had in my room at the time? Who knows. But being a parent that plays these and other violent games can really change how you feel about it.

Not to be a dick but how old are you? Do you have kids? Do you plan on having any if you don't right now? Cuz if you don't then I can say I once thought like you and to some extent still do. Your whole thought process changes once that child comes into this world. You become the wolf defending it's pups or whatever animal instance you want to choose. It's just natural.

I'd ask myself or say all the time, "why should I have to not be able to do things cuz of someone else's kids? f*ck em". Honestly I still think it shouldn't matter, and that it's up to the parents to make the decisions themselves and not hope other people will bear the burden of responsibility when it comes to protecting their children from things that they deem harmful. Whether it's physically harming or psychologically.

If this kids parents say he can't have it yet, then tough sh*t, sorry. Do I think it's wrong? Probably because hell just play it somewhere else or in secret. The more you try to restrict your children the more they'll rebel, whether you know about it or not.

Don't sweat it KP, judging by his posts I've read I'd guess his age between 15-17. 

 

He's at the, "I know everything" stage.

You see the cover right?  You see that 18 on the box?  It's that for a reason - you are not old enough.  Wait until you are 18 and buy it legally yourself.  If your parents let you have it then they are not responsible. 

 

I keep all my media that is inapproapriate for my three sons (games,blurays etc etc) stashed away.  I work shifts and play when either 1) they are at school 2) they are in bed. It's called responsible parenting.

 

I take time to play FIFA and Gran Turismo with them and my experience of gaming, internet etc makes me savy at protecting my kids from such material until they are old enough.

 

There is no convincing to be had mate - you are not old enough.  Period.

Pssh that stage lasts from 13-24 atleast ;). And judging by his non response you're right and he's it nothing to say or he's moved on. Either way I really don't care.

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.

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?

 

I'm a hypocrite? You making me f*cking laugh.

 

Not really, but you just didn't think proprely before sending that post of yours, nor you really thought about posting this one.

 

:facedesk:

 

Just by replying this to me tells me you're stupid. If you would be smart enough, you would have get the point I was telling you. It was a pretty obvious point I was showing but all you did is replying by a stupid question because you are too stupid to understand anyway.

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?

 

I'm a hypocrite? You making me f*cking laugh.

 

Not really, but you just didn't think proprely before sending that post of yours, nor you really thought about posting this one.

 

:facedesk:

 

Just by replying this to me tells me you're stupid. If you would be smart enough, you would have get the point I was telling you. It was a pretty obvious point I was showing but all you did is replying by a stupid question because you are too stupid to understand anyway.

 

Reported. Don't call people stupid. And my original reply wasn't directed to you anyways. You're the one who chose to reply.

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.

You kidding me right? Your original reply was clearly directed to me since you used the second person of the singular "you". I don't know but when I'm saying and I quote: "You making me laugh." I certainly am talking to the person I quote.

 

Edit: I also forgot to say, that when I ask a question, I rarely ask it to myselft.... Just saying...

I really doubt everyone here is over 18.

 

Really hypocritical. No gamer played their first GTA as an adult. 13 is a good age. He's not 11.

With all that has happened in the past and continues to happen in the world I cannot blame the parents for not wanting they're child playing. Not saying you would ever snap and do something but I can definitely see where the fear comes from. Esp the past couple years.


But in the end your parents know you the best and know if your mature enough or not.


Nothing wrong with games in moderation as long as the child is good and does good and focuses on the more important things. It's the parents that resort to letting electronic devices/entertainment to raise they're children that's the problem.


I just laugh when I see young children with iPhones and iPads. I see the benefits of educational apps for the ipad but still.

Ever since the release of GTA  5 I have been asking my parents to let me get gta 5 and they have said no. I think it is mainly because of the sexual content and Nudity, I have been saying that because its a sandbox game you don't have to go anywhere near to any of that and I think I would mainly use gta to play online anyway. All of my friends have it as well and I'm coming up to 13, but I'm sensible and a mature 13 year old. I can tell the difference between real life stuff and video game stuffs. How can I persuade my parents further to let me get the game I would sacrifice all my other games to get?

Thanks in advance! :-)

Playing mature games in my youth has messed me up, sure I will never do drugs, sleep with hoes, drink, or break the law. ( I have the guiltiest concious.) But now I'm swearing, I kinda picked it up and it is extremely difficult to control when not in a mature meeting or environment. And it has kinda desensitized me as an individual. Don't even flinch when people talk about dope, but I do ask why in the hell people would throw their lives away at such a young age. I get the response "U DUN KNO MEH" and it makes me worry for this generation. Sorry, just went on a tangent, but keep in mind, swearing is a really nasty habit and it may not be as bad as drinking or doing drugs, but it is still pretty bad. All in all, I was a tad impressionable, but not enough to go out and beat the hell out of the first cop I saw. You could be the most mature youngn' in the world, but your brain is developing, and the human mind is a cruel mistress.
