If you was an adult you would have known 17 is still not considered an adult.


For games and movie's you should be allowed to download M and R rated ones. You are legally allowed to buy those at 17, yet are still blocked on Xbox.

So someone getting there doctorate is still a child?


You all take it far out of context. I was merely giving examples of why the law defines this person as a child. When a child reaches the age of 18 they become an adult, although some dependent status may remain.

You should also remember that when you become of retirement age you are no longer seen as being independent in the eyes of society but dependent. As you no longer earn wage, and therefore can no longer pay tax back to the state.

But as I said, you take the term dependent to far out of context.

It was poor wording on your part, you inferred that anyone dependant is a child, even though legally it is purely an age criteria.

You can download those even if you are 5 if you lied about your age.

Yeah, his words said that, HOWEVER an adult would have been able to understand what he meant. ;)

True, but this is Gamefaqs. If people expect everyone here to understand what they are getting at even though their wording is off they are mad.

I think, unfortunately, that emotion and meaning can often be miss-interpreted in text. I apologise if you think my definition of childhood and being child was rash. Perhaps I should have better operationalised the meaning of child. From looking back, I should have included an idea of turning 18, only something I did in the later post.

I 100% understood what you meant. I wouldn't worry about it, some people just love to joke about anything they can. xD

TC, even if you just turned 18, you would have to manually upgrade your account from a child account to an adult account.
