It never really came up with games though because they weren't interested in M-rated stuff.
Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. My parents more or less ignored the ratings of games and movies, and determined if they were okay with me by content (after all, how on earth did SSB Melee get a T rating?). Really? I didn't know the factoid about movies and games. I thought it would have been the other way around if there was any difference.

At Christmas I spend a lot of time explaining ERSB ratings to confused Grandparents.
Yeah, if someone asks for an idea because of age limit, I'll just put the item back. XD It's not worth giving the employee and attitude just because they're doing their job (and in most cases I could just have easily bought it online, but I pick it up there because I'm already there to get something else). Overall, I think it's more or less the parent who decides what's okay for their kid in most cases.
