I am the parent of a long-time gamer. Generally enjoyed the tips, but the one about not stopping for dinner with the family, I don't agree with. Part of preserving our family communication and connectedness is our requirement that everyone stops what they're doing and has dinner together. Now that my son is older we do consider his desire to wait a few minutes, but a younger child needs to have that structure.

my dad used to play Halo Reach with me and my sister and it used to always make me giggle when he would kill an enemy (an elite in particular) he would either mock the death sounds of the enemy or he would just gloat 😆. But the one thing he did that made me laugh is when I was away on school camp he started playing reach without my knowledge and when I got back I saw the case for the game sitting on the tv cabinet opened 😆

Going through the comments on this video shows me that parents these days don’t have enough sense to know online means in a life match................I understand games weren’t around back then, and in my opinion, that should make it easier to understand, as they don’t know the complicated parts as to why they just need to know that’s how it is....anyways, I respect parents, but sometimes, they can be so oblivious, even when given a fully detailed explanation.

Storytime: So once me and my Grandma went to gamestop so she could buy me an Xbox 360, she said pick out a game and I picked out the bloodiest used game they had: Gears of War 3, the person at the counter or desk or whatever said that it was really bloody and showed my Grandma a clip of Marcus doing the Lancer execution on a Locust Drone. She still bought it.

hey gameranx i disagree with #4 because as long as its not as bad as GTA of other titles like it. For example i let my son play games like skyrim, COD, JC3, and Fallout. but i respect your reasoning.

Gamer's parents don't need to know about the rating that's why i played god of war when i was 10. This is the game i literally grew up with i will forever be the best game i ever played.

I'm like "Mom by me Witcher 3" she buys it and then, when we're step away from the store, some assistant runs to us and says smth like "It's an M rated game" and she s like "Oh... Yes! Didn't notice that! And then you don't have Witcher 3. This ia what sucks the most

Vierynbryn (1 month ago)
yea, the ratings are there for a reason, use them as a guideline. though i will say it should depend on why a game got an M rating. Halo isn't NEARLY as bad a game for your kid to be playing as GTA in my eyes, but both are M. i actually grew up playing halo sometimes with my dad(and typically getting destroyed by him and my uncle in split screen). Diablo 3 is M, another game that i dont think is really that bad. a good example of when this is ignored is the controversy around overwatch where a parent was complaining that they didn't like one of tracers poses for their 8 year old(or however old they were).

I agree with you with the PVP games can't be paused...it is so annoying that parents don't know that.

when assassins creed 3 came out my parents bought it for me for my christmas present. (i was playing on ps3) And whats the first thing i see, its for Xbox 360 . I told my parents that it wont work and they were really upset and got really really really angry and they said it was my fault that they bought an expensive game and they didnt know it wont work. So what the result you ask? I got nothing for Christmas just a beating ;(
