I’m always a bit surprised when I’m asked how old I have to be to buy games. I know most people don’t have to worry about that, but I get a lot of questions about this subject and it’s something I feel called upon to address in my new book, The Game Geek’s Guide To Game Reviews. My answer to most of them: I’m 21.
The problem is that we’re usually meant to buy games for our own enjoyment, and in many cases, we can’t afford them.
Buying games for a purpose is pretty much a no-brainer. Its pretty much a standard request from someone who’s just bought a game with the intention of using it for a good cause. Of course, in most cases, the purpose is just to put the game on the shelf and then forget about it. It is still a good idea to buy games so you dont forget and end up paying a lot for an old game you don’t really need.
In most cases that goes into the category of impulse buying. Most people who buy games just want to own some type of game. But some people just want to own a classic game. One such person is Mr. C.C. (pronounced “K-C-c”). C.C. is a classic gamer who believes that a good old game needs to be played for as long as the player wishes it would.
Mr. C.C. has been known to pay for some classic games that he doesnt really need. One of these is Tales of Destiny, which I can see him buying for his wife, because she will be playing it in the same room as him. But he has also bought the game for himself. He wants the game so bad that he will pay to have it played on his own computer without his wife there.
Mr. C.C. is not the only gamer who pays for games that he doesn’t really need. There are so many gamers who believe that games should cost as much as they cost to play them. Even the most hardcore gamers often find that games are just too good to play without spending money. For instance, the latest game that cost $100 is a game that costs as much to play as the game itself, or about $60.
This is where the idea of the “m” in m rated games comes in. The m rating refers to a rating for a game that is only applied to a portion of the game. For instance, you could have a game called “Super Mario Bros.” with a m rating for the most fun, but not the shooting and jumping. This is why you see so many games that have the m rating applied to the difficulty level as well.
Games that have the m rating are just that. Games that only have a m rating for general difficulty levels. Games that are designed to be easy at first and challenge you when you’re not expecting it. For instance, the infamous Mario Brothers game is designed to be easy to play and easy to master, but challenging. This is why it was so popular and was rated m.
For years, Nintendo has been very open to the idea that their games have m ratings. Mario 64, for instance, was designed to be easy to play, and the game has been rated m for the sake of it. The fact that the game was rated m meant it had to be the easiest game in the series, and that’s why it’s so easy.
But people have been able to buy the game. A couple years ago, for instance, Nintendo began selling Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $60, and this was the first time that they’ve ever made the game cheaper. This was a bold move for the company, and the fact that it was priced at such a low price made it a big hit.
