i went to dave and busters with my kids yesterday to eat lunch play a couple games and walk around the mall
anyway we were walking around the arcade and we see this group of people watching these 2 young people (i say young but they were about 20 i would say) playing time crisis 4 (shooting game) so me and my kids stand in the back of the group next to this women and her friend and i over hear their conversation
"i bet they fight all the time.....he probably hits her to.....and look shes pregnant! i feel bad for that baby in there having to hear this crap all day long"
her friend just looks at her, and then the boy playing the game "fails the mission" and walks over to the little table next to the girl playing the game
and then the lady again says something rude......"i bet shes more violent look how good she is at that game...i hope that baby shes having gets taken away" then after that the girl loses the game and the group all scatters looking for something else to do, my kids wanted to play the horse game right next to where the shooting game is,and im not joking the lady walks up to these kids looks at them and says "i hope that kid gets taken away from you two, your both violent, how can you be good parents when you play games like this?"
i could tell the boy was pissed off but he didnt say anything.....the girl did "im sorry i didnt know video games dictate what kind of parent a person is going to be" then the girls dad walks up and they walk out to the mall, i actually caught them leaving the mall and i told her that she was brave to stand up to someone like that and we talked for a couple minutes, i found out that she was 18 turning 19 in september, a month after their baby is due, they were there for her boyfriends 20th birthday and her dad brought them to lunch, they were a sweet couple.
i just feel like i should have done something when i heard the lady say something the first time but since i had my kids with me i was afraid to confront anyone....
my point behind this whole story was to ask a question lol
do you think the video games a person plays dictates how good of a parent a person is going to be? why or why not
