Gamer's moms, the infamous gate between us and gaming freedom

     Most of the time when I've been playing a reletively addicting, fun game I will be sure to recommend it to my friends and anyone else if we get on the topic. As enticing as I try and make the games sound My friends will pull out several reasons that seem stamped down on to their mind. The list usually goes, I would like too but I don't have money, It seems like something that I would play for only about 5 hours or they would bring up an even better game in their opinion. The most prevelant answer though that really can't be argued is My mom won't let me get that. Every gamer below the age of 18 all face this same issue in different ways but nonetheless the same problem. For some its the violence, others may be nudity or even language. Ever gamer seems to have this limited freedom as their parents box in their personalities to benefit or sometimes just out of spite. 
     Out of those gamers below 18 there are a very select few that can buy games unheeded by parental intervention. These gamers have seen it all by 6th grade; nudity, violence, blood, you name it. These gamers are idolized and are the source of jealousy from the gamers that are more contained. For me I have always been one of those unheeded gamers because my parents trust me to know the difference between right and wrong and hey I turned out alright (sort of). Though unheeded by the ESRB ratings my parents have their firm grip on me in a way I think no other gamer has to deal with. My parents let me by games but they also have a secret law that they never alert me too until I try and break it. They have set down a rule that even though it was by my money the game was bought the game belongs to them and they so whatever they would like too do with it. That sounds like a normal rule that we all have but do your parents sell games tat you have been playing without telling you until 3 days after because it was worth alot? How about giving games to their friends because their kids wanted it? Its crazy but as the parents they can do whatever they want. There needs to be a pact made by gamers, for gamers to end this long time battle between video games and parents and I hope that you too agree that we prefer them to be clueless to the games rather than clueless but in your face. Comment what you think I've said my piece.
