I work part time in Gamestop in Waterford, and i put my hand up, unless its a 7 year olf looking for a copy on San Andreas, i usually wave the whole age thing. I remember being refused Mortal Kombat when i was a kid, and hate to be ‘that bastard’.
But if theres one thing ive learned from working in games retail, its that parents use games as a ‘leave me alone’ tool. Anything to get away from their kids, for a quick fag.
The sheer volume of people who, when i do say:
“This is an 18s game….”
“Ah sure, its nothing they havent seen on the streets!”
Either the level of street crime, prostitution and drive by’s, has risen dramatically without me noticing, or these parents are a discrace.
