My mom only lets me play T games

Yes I know that 13 is teen, but there's only one M game that I want to play: TF2. It's more silly than violent, and i would use sillygibs, which turns off the blood and gore. Still, my mom does't like the fact that I am killing people, but she lets me play Tribes Accend, another FPS game, that is even more violent than TF2 in comparison. My mother is very overprotective, trust me. She doesn't even like the fact that I have to kill animals ins Minecraft. Please help me.

Ha. Just play them without permission. My dad doesn't really care about the rating of games

Good way to get all video games taken away

He plays computer ones. Those are downloaded. Which means no hard copies. (I can tell because TF2 is computer based and is not on console) I for one, do not play computer games

Your mother sounds like a great woman! you're 13 sweetie you have a lot to learn, regardless of What anyone tells you you've got to listen to your mother she loves you and I'm sure she monitors your games for a reason. I'm sure when you get older you'll get to play mature games. hang in there.

Maybe instead of playing video games, you could go outside, and do something with friends. Or you could learn a new skill, like playing an instrument or learning more about something that interest you.

Trust me I play 5 instruments, I am a master at pinball, I rode my bike everyday, I built a swing set and carve wood into various things (I like making turtles), so I think that I do a lot more than play video games. Also I love playing the Star Trek Pinball Machine in my basement.

Well, good for you. I guess the only thing you can do is find another game you would like to play. Still, challenging yourself to become stronger in something that interest is always a good idea.

Also, if you like to carve wood, and make things, I'm sure you can find a way to learn new skills and make more stuff. You could even try selling what you make. You may not make much money, but more then you would playing video games.

Throw this at her:
There is NO legitimate scientific evidence to support that people who play violent games are themselves more violent. Sure, there is circumstantial evidence; for example, if I recall, the man who attacked Sandy Hook elementary played violent video games. Now, look at the thousands of people who don't play violent games yet commit violent acts, and when you're done with that, look at the millions upon millions of people who do play violent games yet do not commit violent acts.
Make sure she knows you only want to play TF2, and that there is a function within it that turns off blood and gore.
If that doesn't work, there isn't much you can do about it. It's her responsibility to do what she thinks is best for you, and if she thinks not letting you play M-rated games is best for you, so be it.
One other thing, though. You mentioned that she doesn't even like that you have to kill animals in Minecraft. Is she a vegetarian?

Your mom knows best and is looking out for your best interest. Don't argue with her about it.
