I'm not underage, but I also don't work. I am a housewife and my husband buys all my games for me. I suppose you could say I work for it with cooking, cleaning etc. . .
When I was a kid my dad bought me all my games. Thanks to that I had a childhood full of awesome games and nostalgia. I think it's awesome parents buy games for their kids. :D As long as they deserve it >_>
My husband isn't rich in the slightest, but we always manage to afford new games just fine. Sometimes we have to get two copies if there is multiplayer, like with Animal Crossing.
When I was young and there was a game that I wanted, I would save up my allowance every week. I would also use the money that I received from my birthday. My parents would sometimes chip in some money for my games.

Don't you have to be at least 13 to have a account on Gamefaqs? that may be too young to hold down a real job, but it's plenty old enough to go around doing odd jobs in the neighborhood for a bit of spending money. I used to chop wood, mow lawns, ect at that age and would earn $5-$10 a hour(usually closer to $5) Kids don't have to worry about paying for food, gas, bills, rent, so every penny earned is profit. It doesn't really take that long for a kid to save up $40 if they are determined enough and have half decent budgeting skills.
And then of course there are plenty of stupid rich people there who just buy their kids whatever they ask for.
