who was this blog started by-- one of my kids? the video game rating system has only been around for about a decade and for the majority of us who post on this site, we were well into the "mature" age range at that time in history. geesh...

autie, when i was a little kid all they really had was pong. lol and how racy could that get?

i was in my early teens when the video game craze hit the arcades and about 15 when atari's first game console came out (and no, i didn't own one, that was like buying a PS3 back then and my family didn't have the cheddar).

i don't allow my 11 year old to play M games. i know most 11 year olds do though but mine? nope.
