I'm a pretty big gamer. We have a HUGE PC (by huge I mean tons and tons of RAM, a couple hardrives, and an i9 processor) that can run just about anything, and it is located in the living room, hooked up to the television. That is where my PC gaming is. My PS3, which is used much more often, is hooked to the same television, in the living room. This really isn't so they can watch me, though, it's because that's just the best place where it all fits. Because very little of my gaming is done online (I'm a campaign player) my parents really don't monitor what I play, and rarely have. They do check the games, and my dad usually plays them as well, but that's about it. All the parents check for is nudity, and I don't want to play anything like that anyway. My parents trust me and know I'll be responsible in my gaming.
I do think that it is a good thing that kids online are being monitored though, heck I think it's necessary. The world is a very scary place, and people are crazy ... When it comes to my laptop, I'm only on HF, Facebook, and Tumblr. My mother checks my FB regularly, about twice a week. My dad reads HF, but honestly because he actually likes learning a thing or two about the horses. He's great :) Nobody bothers with Tumblr. I'm allowed plenty of time on the computer, but I don't have that much time! I usually get about an hour that I'm able to be on my laptop, between the horses, church, and school. On church days, I don't get that hour.
If I was younger, and an online gamer, I know the supervision would be much more strict.
