Well, convince him that you can distinguish reality and fiction. Maybe show him examples of kids on Youtube or anywhere online who play it to show that there's no harm. But based from what you say, he does already knows you're a good kid. I just think it's an age thing, whether you like it or not. He does mean that he wants you to be a little older. He just thinks it's good parenting if you prevent kids from playing violent games or watching violent movies at a younger age. It's just how your dad was brought up to think, and it's hard to change. I'm sorry to say, but you will have to wait a few more years till you can convince him, since you're living under his roof and have to listen to his rules. I was also in your shoes, when I was young, I couldn't even play HALO ir Kingdom Hearts lol, but couldn't do anything about my parents.
There is a way you can play those games though right? Just go to a friend's house and play it there.
How can i show my parents that I am mature?
I'm 13 years old and want to get GTA V. My dad says that im not "mature" enough and that it is too violent. He says that if i do something to show him that I am ready for this game, he will let me buy it. Please dont say anything about chores or grades, he already knows that im responsible, i am only trying to get him to realize that someone my age will be fine playing the game. Also, dont give any bullcrap about "kids your age shouldnt be playing GTA". Thats not what i am here for.
- The ESRB doesn't make these ratings as a guideline, they make it as a rule. I didn't play my first E +10 game until I was 10, my first T game tile I was 13, and my first M game until I was 17. There's a reason that Gamestop won't sell people an M rated game until they are able to provied a state recognized form of identification that shows that the individual is 18 or up. Otherwise, it opens up the possibility for law suits to Gamestop, the Publishing Company of the game, and the developers.
There is legitimately a torture scene in the game. I played it when the game first came out in 2013 (I was like 19 at the time) and it shocked and appaled me that they would make a scene with, not just torture, but goverment funded torture.
All I'm trying to say is wait for 4 years to go by. Then return to the issue. We don't need people to continue ignoring rules.01
- Maturity isn't really something that you can just "show" like it's some kind of skill or talent. Maturity is observed; it's how people naturally approach/react to events around them and how they process them. Maturity is gained through experience, and what exactly defines maturity differs from person to person.
When your father says "you're not mature enough", he is most likely saying "I don't want you to play that game right now and that's all there is too it". Most parents cannot be convinced of their own childs' maturity through a simple act.
Your best course of action is simply to ask YOUR FATHER (not strangers on the Internet) what you can do to show you are worthy of playing Grand Theft Auto 5. He may give you a task or tasks to earn it, or he may say there isn't anything you can do. The "mature" thing to do is to trust your fathers judgement and go on with your child life without having played GTA5. Once you become of age and earn enough money to live on your own, then you can determine what you can and cannot do.
I know it sucks to hear, but all current adults have been through it; you have to simply do what your parents say and accept that you cannot do everything you want to yet.10
- kill your cat, this shall show them that you're ready for mature content on video games as you have seen real life gore... if you don't have a cat i recommend a neighbours cat but make sure you mutilate it and leave it where you parents can find it... for example, under you bed...00
- ya know mate, its people like ye who ruin the call of duty community. the game would not be so utterly garbage were it not for little immature kiddos like yourself tryin to play mature adult games. i bet you dont even ptfo. smh mate please stop trying00
- You should sit down and have a discussion about why he thinks you cannot handle it. Gather some information about the effects of playing violent video games, in case he thinks it will set a bad example.
For the nudity and sex, explain that you do not see the sex and genitalia. Going to strip clubs is optional, and for this you should let him watch you play it when and/or if you get the game.
Explain that the ESRB ratings are recommendations, not a law. In my country (the U.K.), it is illegal for a video game retailer to sell a game rated any age to a person below that age. However, it is not illegal for a person below that age to play such a game.
You can show that you are old enough to handle it by taking care of your expensive belongings, showing respect for others and simply not acting immaturely.
- the biggest mistake is reminding the parent of what you want......... be as respectful as you can......... do the laundry so they don't have to, same with dishes......... do not remind your father to buy you gtav, it shall decrease your chances......... just continue to be responsible, and if your father feels you are mature enough, he'll buy it in his own time.........00
- I'm sorry but your dad sucks. I started playing video games since I was 4 years old and the first game my dad taught me how to play was GTA San Andreas on original Xbox. Then it was saints row and so on, so it's funny how your 9 years older than I was and you still can't play it. Show him your mature by telling him about girls you like and having a close relationship to him. Prove to him that you won't grow up to pull people out of their cars😂00
- Tell your dad to rent it and play it for himself it should help him come to a decision easier.00
