Wow, I think the fact that his parents bought him an entire inventory of video games from a local game store tells it all! Can we say spoiled?!
I can only imagine how he behaved, and the parents are only to blame!
On a side note, I would get PO'd when playing old school games like NES, and SNES, but those days are long gone-either I've mellowed out, or video games are much easier! i.e.: Play Mega Man for the NES if you want to test your patience level with games
(Or Super Ghouls and Ghosts for the SNES)
