im not gonna defend battlefront 2, but i think people should have the right to gamble away their entire life savings should they choose to do so

im not saying its a smart idea, quite the opposite, but they should have the right

Don't want kids gambling away their parents' life savings.

1) Don't buy the game.

2) Don't give anyone your credit card unless you accept any purchase they make.

3) Lock in-app purchases on your devices.

4) Exercise vigilance on credit card statements.

5) Talk to your children about the value of money. Let them earn their own money through chores and pay their allowance in a prepaid refillable gift card. Attach their device to their prepaid card, not your credit card.

6) Spend time with your children while they do things they enjoy to bond with them and understand their hobbies. Mentor them in their hobby to earn their respect.

7) Give up taking responsibility for yourself and your family. Let the government take care of it for you, in exchange for a small bit of freedom. Rinse and repeat as people grow more irresponsible. Now we need to legislate vidya games.

Expecting parents to actually parent and take responsibility when they fuck up? I like this dream world of yours!

They still would. They'd just have to be of legal age to gamble (unless gambling age is 18, I don't actually know).

To be fair this guy from Hawaii is suggesting to allow them gamble at age 21 in games, Hawaii I believe has no age of consent for gambling they just say no gambling.

Along with the right to gamble their money away, they should have the right to know the odds of the game they're playing. Sounds a lot like something already on the books..

Chris Lee agrees they should be able to gamble, at age 21. Hawaii says no gambling so if this qualified it should be banned not age restricted.
