    There aren't prepaid cards, but you CAN buy a lot of the games as a physical disc in places like Gamestop or Walmart.

    You can buy a Visa gift card and use those I'm pretty sure.

    Otherwise use a parent's card.

    You can buy a prepaid credit card such as the Vanilla Mastercard.

    I've tried those and they work fine with Steam.

    If a visa gift card doesn't work directly I know it can be tied to a paypal and then used.

    Your account says you're 16, which means you're eligible to open your own checking account at a bank (Bank of America for sure) without your parents permission or anything.
