Why are console gamers seen as "young kids"?

Because responsible adults think games are ridiculous and for kids. There are a few responsible adults that game, I'm one, I hide my console in my entertainment center, friends don't know what I have, my 1&4 y old have no idea I game. My house is extremely clean, you wouldn't think I game until 10pm hits. Plus lazy parents tend to buy kids consoles to avoid parenting(sometimes).


So what you're saying is... I now know your dirty little secret. Those are some nice shoes you have on... it would be a real shame if I had to tell everyone you know that you're a gamer!

I don't care if they know I just don't brag or talk about it. I'm married to a doctor, not a single one of her colleagues game and I would never talk about it to them. Only 1 of my adult friends game but he barely does also. They all view it as a kids thing, I don't but don't care. Beats some of those doctors lifestyles, hookers and porn addicts with drinking problems who admit they're lonely and depressed all the time lol.

To the best of my knowledge, these are all scientifically accurate.


Those are perfect.


I agree

Is it because kids tend to really do get consoles? I mean, they aren't going to ask mommy to get $1,000 PC or more. And you do always see kids browsing games near the games section in stores like Walmart, Target whatever. And they're def. all over the place in Gamestop.. I guess it's true in a way, adults w/ jobs get PCs.


$1000 pc? Dude you're over paying. Ever hear of new egg?

You just said you hide your console and don't talk about it then said you don't care if they know. Which is it? F*** hiding it man don't be ashamed of who you are

why is this same question posted on another bored


Because console gamers tend to be loyal to a specific brand & are split within different communities? Gotta get input from both.


im only loyal to the games i like, i dont care at all about MS, Sony, Nintendo ect, i'll end each gen with each console for exclusives, and my PC for exclusives/better games (Diablo 3 on PC is far superior and ahead of the console version)

to lock yourself to one brand is stupid...
