How can you buy M rated games at Gamestop if your younger than 17?
Hi, I'm fifteen and I've got my drivers license. I'd like to be able to buy games at Gamestop, but I'm not old enough to buy M rated games. Is it possible to get written permission or something from my parents so I can buy them. Thanks. Any help or suggestions or anything is greatly appreciated. Oh, and don't say anything about lying about my age or anything illegal. I don't want to get into trouble.

Generally speaking, you can't. Like another user said, if the clerks are doing their job properly, they will require that you bring in a parent or guardian to buy it for you... More

bring someone big with you, like your big brother, mother, dad. you can do a move to ask someone to buy you, or give him 5$USD. i saw kid do that and worked lol. King Fez 2011/8/9

although they're not supposed to, you may be able to get it without any problems. just depends on the personnel. if the store is doing their job correctly, you would need a parent (or adult) to purchase the game.

How about this, bring anyone 17 or older to go with you to get the game you want. Its possible to do that. I'm twelve and my mom and dad came with me to buy modern warfare 2. OR, you can take an adult and ask them if they can tell the clerk that they gave you permisision to buy M games. works with me! Hope this helps.
