Hello yall, I am famous for posting stupid threads but anyways, Today my father came up to me while i was playing "Freedom Fighters" for the PS2 and he said "Are you forgetting something? You are forgetting your college and your family and your work, you shouldnt be playing games all night long. So me and your mother talked and decided to not bring the PS2 to college (RIT, New York) Next year"

Just because i played Final Fantasy XI online from 5pm to 9am, Come on its fucking summer. He cant just take away my PS2 when im in college because i will be almost 19 and im majoring in GAMING DESIGNS so i need the PS2 dont I? So heres the question... Does your parents treat you this way?

As a parent I have to say that your attitude stinks - for a start, how can you play one game for 16 hours straight?

Any what is wrong with your parents decision? They obviously will have to pay for your college, right? So shouldn't you make sure that you get the best results possible? And if you think you can support yourself, then my guess is that the PS2 is better off at home since you won't have time to play...

On a different note - my friend, when I was sixteen my father kicked me out of the house - I just finished school for the summer but my old man had enough of me. I had no choice but to join the Army, and trust me, it sucked. After the Army it was hard to get into civy street again. For a start you haven't really learnt a profession, so there are no jobs out there for you. I think I was lucky in that I received a disability allowance and pension from the forces - those enabled me to go to college and university to catch up on things. I now have two Phd to my name, but believe me, it still hasn't gotten any easier to get a job.

What I am trying to say here is - you are 18, it is time to get real. You have time to play games later, when you have made your mark and gotten a decent job - that has to be a priority right now. And it has nothing to do with me being your parents age - it is just one of those things that come with life.

Trust me, should you fail, you got plenty of time between cheques to play on your console...

I think Bodo has right (he's a parent after all), it might sound unfair but it's for your own best.

Yes i have the ability to take the Ps2 with me without them knowing... and Bodo, I am majoring in Gaming Designs, So why should my parents take away my main object for gaming designs? At least i know that i am not going to play 20 hours of games at college because i dont have time for that... its SUMMER by the way now. I am willing to succeed at gaming designs so im going to do more work than playing games just for fun, but i do need the games and PS2.

Just calm down and take it easy. It's your parents job to do such stuff, and you're not the only person in the world whose parents are hyperactive at that :) Try to find some kind of agreement, listen to their complaints and try to do at least something about them. Buy your mother a few flowers or a beer for your dad and talk with them every once in a while. This usually works and is definelty less trouble than starting an argument which you can't win anyway.

thats a good idea. i agree. but if that doesnt work then take the family pet hostage or buy the lock picks like the others have said.
