How can I convince my parents to let me play video games during weekdays?

I am really wanting to play video games during the week, and my parents haven't let me since 6th grade. I'm 14 and in 9th grade. I'm sure they believe that it will consume my life, but I have constantly assured them it won't. Even on weekends I can't play past 9 o'clock, but I do admit that I occasionally play for 3 to 4 hours. I'm a A/B+ student and school comes first for me. I just often find myself bored out of my mind and it would be nice to be able to play 1 hour or so a day if I become bored. Any help would be very much appreciated.
