Steam sales are kicking into full gear already, so I snagged Legend of Grimrock, Outlast, and Titan Quest Gold, woot!

I don't usually buy digital games, but I picked up Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition from Steam for six dollars.  I honestly did not think I would convince my parents that I could play the game.  Its the first M rated game I have owned (except perfect dark for N64 I got in a game lot) and they were not overly enthusiastic.  It was basically an awkwardly silent room for a half hour while they read about it online and I paced the room ha.
I am really excited to play it though, it looks like my kind of game.
Currently Playing: Dark Souls: Remastered (Switch)

You're making me feel very old  :o

But the good news is your parents care and do their own research - I can't tell you how many parents came into my old shop and thought GTA was a driving game because there were cars on the box :/

I agree with Kimimi.  I'm glad they're not writing off every game as being destructive, but they're also not naive about potentially inappropriate material.

The fact that they're willing to hear you out, then do some of their own research to understand your request is such a surprisingly refreshing sign of parents who really care.    Most parents would either just say yes no matter what or say no to everything without being willing to discuss the topic.

Also!  Congrats on the new game purchase!

Yeah they are usually pretty fair, but it was hard enough getting rated T games into the house I did not expect this.  They have always had a negative connotation of most rated M games being like "that game where you can kill hookers and do drugs" so I hope I helped change that a bit.

I don't think your parents did enough research on the game.

You'll be swearing your lungs off soon enough. You'll see. :P

I have a lot of wants this week but I have no money. Sigh. :(
