Im 24 and still play Nintendo. Do I need help?

Im gonna either take this as a joke or suggest you follow the tips of other posters, and realize you're your own man and to worry about other peoples opinions at this point is perhaps the only thing truly holding you back from a well-lived life.

I'm also 24 for reference, hold down a full time job, have plenty of other interests, but enjoy video games just as girls enjoy reading trashy magazines like cosmo. I find no reason to explain myself to people who scoff at the idea that games are a waste of time, and dont let anyone-girls or guys- tell you that while they're probably reading about TSwift's latest BF or incessantly checking on their fantasy football league at work.

24 and still caring what other people think of you? Haven't you learned anything by now?

Well, I wouldn't go that far. Everyone cares what people think of them.

Me talking to a person:

Person: Got any hobbies?

Me: I like music, reading and video games.

Person: Video games? Oh man, they are lame! What a waste of time. You a kid or something?

Me: ...Fine, what do you do with your free time?

Person: I love to go to the internet and browse Face Book.

Me: -___- Kay.

True story.
Why do you play games you don't enjoy? Are you a masochist?

I'll still be playing nintendo in a nursing home if I live that long.

Basic meaning of this topic: As long as you personally enjoy playing Nintendo titles, or games from any company, then it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. You are not them, they are not you. SO, stop worrying what others think and just have fun.

Yeah, you need major help. 24 and still caring about what people think of you? Oh please. Nobody does that. Go see your shrink right now.

Hm? because you play games you need help? you would need help if playing games were the only thing you do in life (given some exceptions). I am 23 and play something at least a few times per week, and also am pursuing a Engineer degree. I also have many friends who are also in the same boat as me (many are much older). I also have girlfriend, go out often to drink with friends, lift weights in the gym etc. So, playing games doesnt mean you are some kind of social freak. I ask myself when people will learn that.

For better or worse (probably worse lol), people in their 20s and 30s now are the ones that grew up with videogames and videogames will continue to be used by older and older people in the future. Games are as big as ever now and people are sticking with them.

Like some of the others here I just turned 35, bought my Wii U with my wife and 7 year old daughter at the store...didn't even cross my mind that it was childish. I try to engage myself in all aspects of gaming regardless of a games rating or the system it's on. My wife thinks it's great that I can go from dicing people up in Devil May Cry, the go play some Street Fighter, then roll over to Yoshi's Story. It's the diversity and the open mind that allows us to enjoy these things.

A sense of whimsy is a dying thing in this day and age, there are few who have it, and those that do are afraid to show it. When I was about 5 my mother used to read me all the Tolkien books, I was the only kid in the class who knew about the world of fantasy, that trolls turned to stone in sunlight, I felt awesome, and unique. Sure I got picked on but look at how popular all that stuff is now, same for Marvel comics. Don't abandon the whimsical things in life, lest you become a mindless robot.
