We don't need Rome telling us what to do.


my mom was decidedly not cool about video games growing up, but that never stopped her from enabling me.

a couple years ago though i was sitting in her office with her partner and she mentioned to him that "it makes more sense as an entertainment value to spend 60 bucks on a video game you can play all you want instead of spending twenty on a two hour movie." it was a strangely astute observation and the only media my mom consumes is downton abbey and fifty shades of grey

tell me your cool game mom stories or fart up this thread like you imps usually do

My mom expressed sincere concern over me playing a Shaman in the World of Warcraft, convinced that it was an avenue that would allow Satan into my heart.

Twenty years ago Christians would be livid about this game, but after years of this desensitization WOW slips under our spiritual radar. World of Warcraft is one of the many tools used to captivate and desensitize many concerning the Occult and divination.

The Bible is clear that casting spells is an abomination to God. Those who practice witchcraft (sorcery) will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:20-21). These practices are anti-God and are in rebellion against Him. Also see Deuteronomy 18:9-14; Isaiah 44:25; Jeremiah 27:9; 2 Kings 21:6; 23:24, Ezekiel 21:21; Isaiah 19:3; 1 Samuel 28, 1 Chronicles 10:13-14.

Please listen to your mother.

I thought maybe I'd share a dad story too, because why not, I was 5 and I wanted my dads attention so I pulled on his arm while he was playing a video game, and he went "AHH Don't bump my mouse arm!!!!"

now you know all my stories goodbye

Yeah, my mom (seemingly??) had no interest whatsoever in games, and when I got to choose them I did it based on the cover art only, but somehow I ended up with like all the top-tier SNES games.

My mom once watched my brother play FIFA, and she reacted to it like it was an actual soccer match.

The weird thing was that she chose them. She never even looked at what games I played or anything, just went to like Toys R Us at random to buy me a game (or later, Blockbuster for super-cheap preowned games). I think I ended up buying more bad myself than the random ones she bought me.

She bust out the national flag and started chanting. But naw, she just yelped when the ball was stolen or someone took a shot. She also reacts the same way to all sports.

... at least we've got Aaron Rome!

my mother woke me up when i was nine and said "guess what i did" and i said what

and she brought me downstairs and on the screen was the diablo beta confirmation, a game i was only slightly aware of (despite loving wc/wc2). i guess one of her internet friends had signed up and told her to do it as well. even after she learned what it was she didn't stop me from playing it which was cool too

Thats because your mom asks the clerk which ones are good, or reads reviews. She loves you. or at least she did, no promises about now.

My mom is from New Orleans, I used a bug in Left 4 Dead 2 to remove all the zombies and show her around the virtual New Orleans. I think that's the last time she played any kind of videogame.

Want to know what MY kokoro wish is?

When I left home, my Mother missed me terribly, so naturally she recreated me, the family house and my entire personalty in the Sims 2.

Scarily, she only needed to enter my Birthday for the game to assign me as a fat, loser nerd who draws alot and has a lovely string of jobs.

My mom bought me good games. Then when I had money to buy games on my own I chose something lovely.

I should probably let my mom manage my Steam account.

Just in case.

I was having a really bad day at school and when my mum came to pick me up she gave me a copy of just-released-then Sonic & Knuckles in the playground, I was super excited and literally jumping for joy while my mum showed up all the other parents on the school grounds.

Thanks mum!

My stay at home mom would play The Legend of Zelda before taking me to school. She would still be playing when I got home and was the first in the house to beat the game. Thanks for setting a good example!
