UK TV retail queen [URL=http://twitter.com/#!/queenofshops]Mary Portas[/URL] (known as Mary Queen of Shops on TV) went after UK-based games retailer GAME in a very public way over the weekend after her 17-year-old son was not allowed to purchase a 15+ rated game at the company's Oxford Street store. Outraged that the store was following the recommended guidelines on ratings, Portas took her fight to the phones to contact the company's CEO and to Twitter.

The result was a very public display that some gamers responded harshly to - like this [URL=http://www.eurogamer.net/forum_thread_posts.php?thread_id=202101&start=0]Eurogamer forum thread[/URL] where users called her everything from a "see you next Tuesday" and a moron, to a b*tch and a drama queen. Good job, Internet.

Her initial argument was that staff at the store recommended games to her son, but then refused to sell them to him because he didn't have a proper form of ID. [URL=http://www.gamepolitics.com/2011/02/14/game-follows-rules-uk-queen-shops-gets-crazy][B][COLOR=#8e0505]Read More[/COLOR][/B][/URL]
