You wanna know how much my mom was against video games in our home? One day my grandma invited us to a big toystore and she said we could pick one thing of whatever we want. My mom did not allow me to go to the video game area. Which means I had to get my fix for video games elsewhere, in youth clubs, stores and at friends houses. That resulted in me neglecting my school work even more than it probably would've if I had my own console. I got my first own TV when I was 14 and I had to save up over a year to be able to afford a second hand N64. At my 16th and 18th birthday I came to a lot of money and splurged most of it on consoles and games. I bought a launch PS3 so I could finally play PS2 games at home. I also bought a PC, so I could play older games on emulators. That's what happens when you keep your kids from having fun in their youth.

I'm over 2500h in Rocket League now and it's all my mom's fault.
