Hey guys I've been trying to convince my mom to get me Assassin's Creed 3 for PS3 for Christmas. She says its too bloody and violent. I told her you can turn off blood (unless it's changed from AC2) but she's too stubborn. Any ideas?

I don't really have any advice for you because I'm a mom and I bought the AC games for ME. My son doesn't get to play it until I complete it first.

Hmmm, maybe you could tell her that other moms actually play the game. Or wait, does she happen to like Italian men? Ezio is pretty sexy considering he's a video game character.

Ask your dad? Ask for money and have someone you know that's old enough to buy it? Drug your mom?

What are their political beliefs? Do they like excellent stories? If you explain the awesome storyline from the first and second one (assuming you played them) they may be swayed that there's more to the game than violence. In fact, AC isn't really all that violent at all compared to some other ridiculously violent games. The only thing is that when you hit people they bleed. That's pretty much it.

No dismemberment. No decapitations. No puking. Nothing like that.

If you're under 18 and trying to get the game, I guess your mom/dad has the last word here.
(Assuming you're under 18... otherwise why would you need consent?)

Well, if she says so you have to live with it. But I don't really understand why you're allowed to play AC2 but not Brotherhood. But well, I'm not the one to judge.

AND?

If you're under 18, which I'm assuming you are since you have to ask her for it, you may be SOL. It is violent, yes.. and yes, you can turn off the blood.. but the game is also rich in Renaissance history. You can try to show her comparisons of the architecture renderings to the real buildings.. or the cutscenes with Leonardo and his inventions (motherly protip: Leave anything with the apple or the Truth/Da Vinci Code out) orrr even the profiles of the characters.

If that doesn't work.. I guess you'll have to wait until you're older. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I wouldn't advise going behind your parents back and getting the game. That will only make it worse, and if they find out they'll take it off of you.

Just go at it from an historical angle. Say that it features quite a bit of renaissance history and that you're quite keen on the topic.

I'm going to be honest here, AC:Brotherhood has made me look up numerous stuff on renaissance history, it intrigues me. But that might just be the historian in me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

she said i couldent have it because she wanted me to be suprised when i got it, my guess is your parents are doing the same thing.

Heres my advice.. it involves getting a little creative so I hope you're good at drawing.

Pick a box from one of your current video games and take out the cover, leaving just the plastic. Then get a piece of paper, cut it to the same size as the cover you just took out and draw the following on it:

<UL TYPE=SQUARE> <LI> A boy, similair to yourself holding a chainsaw.

<LI> A woman similair to your mom being killed with the chainsaw by the said boy. (tip: include plenty of blood and make the woman that looks like your mother really old and fat)

<LI> Then write the title: "The boy who didn't get what he wanted for Christmas so carved his mom to pieces: the game" [/list]

Be imaginative and use plenty of colour. (perhaps the title could be written in blood?)

After you are done, approach your mom and tell her that you can see why she doesn't want you playing AC and you accept her decision.

Then say you've found a new, more appropriate video game instead.. hand her the box, with your home-made cover on it and as if by magic, you'll get exactly what you want >http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You, sir, are brilliant.

OP, don't actually do this.

Get a friend to do it, tell your mother the story, and convince her that as a far better-behaved child than your friend who tried this, you can be trusted to distinguish between real life and games.

Might not get the game straight away, but it should help a little.

Work with the fact that it contains history and is a very knowledgable game. If you have the second one, you can show her the character Bios and things to do with history. If all else fails, get someone else to buy it (I.E Older brother, cool Uncle, etc.)

I would have to disagree. If you have your PS3/XBOX in a secure location, say your room, then all you need to do is be cautious while playing it (make sure your mom doesnt barge in on you playing it). Even if she does, she probably wouldnt know what it is unless youve got a nosy mom who would do something like google it.

Also worth mentioning:

A study specifically set up working on the premise that multiplayer games encourage violent behaviour found that, not only do free-for-all deathmatches NOT increase the probability of violence, but they also help develop teamwork and problem solving skills.

I'd provide links, but I got it from a printed magazine I used to have a subscription to when I worked at a medical lab. Don't have a website for it.

2. You have money, you have a job, you are old enough, you still have to ask your Mum's permission = Grow a pair

Seriously though, this is ridiculous, if she's hell bent on you not having the game then you aren't getting it, simple.. I have to agree with someone who said ask for an amazon gift card.. Maybe someone generous would buy it for you?

Bit of an assumption I'd think, my friend couldn't play pokemon growing up because his parents thought that it was demonic.

does that mean that he wasn't mature enough, probably not. It's just that some people tend to have faulty perceptions.

I have a friend whose parents won't allow him to play games that are not suitable for his age.

Anyway, like everyone said; just tell her it's a somewhat educational game about renaissance Italy.

That's a bit vague/absurd, and I think it's already been assumed/asked before.

lol, Problem is most of the parents don't tend to allow their Kids to play some certain titles, because they are skeptical, despite the Age of their kids.

Even if some titles contain very Low Voilence, strong language, and/or Blood/gore, some Parents tend to have a very Strong Notion against that specific Title/Game. I've noticed this many times.

That's true, I have other parents asking me if certain games are appropriate for their kids cuz they know that I've probably played them before. Or at the very least I know about them.

Since I'm a parent and a gamer I have a better idea than most parents about what's ok and what's not. And although the ratings are great I've learned that nothing beats knowing YOUR child and what they should and should not see or play.

I just think that if the OP has any of the other AC games then it shouldn't be a problem. But it sounds to me like he doesn't so...I guess he'll be waiting for LBP2 to come out in January. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

To the OP. Has any of your friends got Brotherhood? (someone your parents feel is setting a good example to you?).

It might sway them a bit if they realise its acceptable for people your age to have the game.

I for one think some video games are poorly rated, but that's just me, I don't really take offence to anything.

Try to sound like Shaun Hastings mentioning all kinds of historical dates and events, saying you learned them from playing the previous games at a friend's house. Tell her you've been to Jerusalem, Acre, and Damascus; Florence, Tuscany, Venice, and the Vatican, and learned all sorts of facts about specific places in those cities.

EDIT: Mention how you learn how to manage money, inventory & repair your equipment consistently, talk to people, ride horses, row gondolas, and play the game without attacking anybody!

^ And to continue what SirPhist said, don't forget to mention how you like to stab through bad people/guards/Templars painfully.

Only in order to save the world! Tell her that; tell your mom that you have to save the world! Not only that, tell her you have to learn how to manage subordinates and be a leader. Tell her it's a mystery story.

EDIT: ain't it interesting how one would almost never hear the same conflict over a story book novel? "mommy, i want this book."
"NO, it's too violent & bloody!"
"but it's historical and phsychologically engaging!"
"NO, you'll imagine being too violent & bloody!"

My mom walked in on the part of the second game where they revealed that Jesus was an alien. Now I don't get Brotherhood, or any other Ubisoft game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

SHAME!!!
are you kidding? yeh ratings are ther for a reason - to advise.
there are plenty of grown ups here and they all probably played when they were kids. back before the ESRB and PEGI crap.
when watching Lara getting impaled by spikes was not much of a big deal, and they all turned out fine. (I think. I don't really know any of them)
and that's another point. we don't know the OP.
it's our job to try and educate some random kid asking for help to scheme his parents.
it's not your job to try to educate us to try to educate the OP.

Not even FARCRY2?

Wouldn't it be great if the type of parents in question saw the intrigue of such a game mentioning such fictitious reality?

Some parents are very hard-headed. They won't let you have "game title here" but they'll sit and watch "Russel Crowe's Robin Hood/virtually any movie title here"?

What?!
They never said Jesus was an alien.
They just 'showed' he was a freud.

that sucks, especialy considering that Jesus wasn't an alien, or even First Civilization.

I feel sorry for you. It seems even a whiff of (non-existential, It's fiction, a story, lies etc. challenge at faith and people are switched on like electromagnets which repel any and all things which don't praise their lord. Why are people so intolerant?

OT: OP should tell his mom that in this game you learn history, maths in the glyphs and human anatomy... if you know what I mean http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
