    other than that, not much really, except school and all those other things that are not really problems but more like annoyances.

    Gaming kept me outta trouble! I was encouraged by my grandparents to game cuz it kept me from hanging out with "those" kids! Everytime I hung out with other kids, trouble would follow. I just had a knack for having mischievous friends! Gaming kept me away from drugs and legal trouble! Now, I am a Cop in the USAF, and I still game. Oh, btw, games won't sleep with your girls either, but your "friends" will!

    The only solution in this case is for your mother to go fuck herself. With a rusty pair of Hand Mixer prongs, preferably.

    That pretty dumb not every1 can be a straight A student. The only real time I got grounded for my grades when I failed all my classes and when I quit summer school I got 2 weeks of no Internet for both.now my grades are much better I'm glad i don't have strict parents

    This reminds me of the time my parents kept pestering me to study for my end of the year exam in high school 5 years ago. They'd pop in, gripe about me playing games or reading books and tell me to get some study done. I didn't get anything like an A or 100% but I did pass my exams and went on to college .

    Also I think this song kinda applies to this situation

    My advice to any school-going gamer is to give up gaming til you finish. It is too good a hobby and far too addictive to have a good affect on how you tackle your schoolwork. I'm all for gaming responsibly if you can afford it, but I don't think gaming seriously and concentrating on your schoolwork goes hand in hand. I was a straight A student all the way up until Year 11, which coincidentally was the same time I started to game seriously. I barely passed Year 11 and didn't even make it a quarter of the way through year 12.
    I'm an intelligent individual. I have a great, well-playing job and have a great social life. Fucking up schooling due to my focus on gaming rather than homework has been a great regret I've had. I gave up a chance to attempt to forge a career in an industry I really cared about through study by playing every game I could get my hands on. That type of shit does have a big effect, so every job I've had to earn from scratch with nothing to my name, and that does prevent opportunities. Heed my advice, younguns. If you can game responsibility and get them grades, good on you. But don't ever forsake your education for a game.
    Very well spoken I agree with you 100% the better your education is the easier your life will be.

    Replying to the OP you should try gaming with a job and family. I get (if I'm lucky) 2-3 hours a night.

    Back when I was in elementary school (or perhaps it was middle school), I would get grounded from my system for not going to school. I missed probably 30-40 days each year when school years were 180 days. Anywho, my parents would ground me from my PSOne. They would take the controller.

    What did I do? Borrowed a controller from a friend and played it into the odd hours of the night while everyone was sleeping, and then stash the controller in my dresser.

    Moral of the story : What mommy don't know won't hurt you.

    In Latveria, no one and Doom means no one keeps Doom from gaming.
    Doom runs a country, bitch! A nation of slaves! Dig you a grave! I'll make Umbrella look like Welfare, minimum wage! Doom is getting enraged! I come harder! Killed my ex-girlfriend and turned her into a suit of armor! Beat you to death with your legs, leave you in stitches, Marvel 2 is the shit, RE 5 is for bitches!

    I think your mom is right. You will not agree for right now with me, but believe me. Education is far more important in life than playing videogames. If you will not be able to find a decent job in x amount time that you have to start working, you wont have the income to buy those videogames in the first place. So instead of being mad, say thank you to your mom
