    I`m actually impressed. From the description I assumed it was going to be a review saying that it was eating your childrens souls or something, but it was actually a good review. How times have changed...

    "We had some tough questions we wanted answered."
    "So it it Mario Mario and Luigi Mario?"

    Best Part...I`m fairly sure the "tough questions" part was sarcastic, but still.

    jessie789: I`d have to disagree. I onetime took my cousin (she`s 20 years older than me) and she didn`t even know about the ratings system. She thought I was getting a mature game because it said "sexual references" or some poo like that. It was Sims: Hot Date (or something like that), BTW.

    I also know a guy who works at GameStop. There are so many parents who will buy GTA for their kids without even bothering to look up what`s in the game.

    I remember getting my first Nintendo when I was in the 5th grade! It was the most awesome gift EVER!!! All there was before that was Atari, and it wasn`t nearly so interesting. Of course, it was my older brothers. He got it for xmas. Had to give over whenever he wanted to play! <sigh>
