I play Save The World. The reason the parents don't want their kids to lose is because when some people lose, they say bad words.

going professional in video games is not like sports, getting into the NBA or NFL will keep you there as long as you are still fit and a good player, but with games intrest can decrease to nothing with newer games coming out that the professional player may not be as good or experienced with…its like making a tennis player switch to baseball or cricket.
