I'm an edge case where for some reason I kept calling my dad by his first name since I could first start speaking. I was corrected multiple times but for whatever reason I stuck with using his first name that my parents just gave up and went along with it.

That's not the case with my mom though who I will always call mom which is why I would find it strange for someone who was calling their parents mom and dad for many years to suddenly stop that when they reach an arbitrarily chosen age.

Yeah, if people call their parents by their first name, it seems like it makes the most sense for people to just do it their whole lives. Like, whatever somebody's family upbringing was like, go for it.

But I've never heard of somebody randomly going "Well I'm 20 and in university, so now instead of Mom and Dad, it's Karen and Bob." I think the age thing is just completely irrelevant, because I don't think many people switch.

The only "formality switch" I've ever done like that is when I stopped calling my friends' parents "Mr. [whatever]" and "Mrs. [whatever]" and just call them by their first names. Granted, some of them I still treat formally and use their last names, some of them are really easygoing and I've known for a long time and they want me to use their first names, and then one or two of my friends have dads who are real hardasses that I don't like very much so I use their first name to undermine their authority.

Yeah, the switch at what's basically a random point in time to stop calling them mom and dad and just use first names is strange for me. Even in the case of my dad I would refer to him as dad in conversations with other people and only use his first name when I'm directly speaking to him.

@hurricaneivan29: Your poll doesn't get that point across and it's a pointless one to make considering that you can't exactly age-gate the poll in the first place.

Personally, mine was the drunken tornado story.

How did that one go again? Because the only serious one that comes to mind was the nut rupture story

I'm more interested in the campaign so unless that side of the game is broken and/or terrible I'll most likely end up buying it

Yup, PC's are awesome but I'll admit that it isn't for everyone because there will always be people that prefer to keep it simple by just being able to pop in a disc into a console and start playing.

PC has more value to it than consoles ever will but part of the appeal of consoles is their convenience
