Pokemon is for little kids.

Why do people say this? I'm an adult now, and I still play Pokemon. I'm going to be playing this game when it comes out. It might just be the only game I even buy for the 3DS. But no one knows I'll be playing it. I know they'll call me names like loser, PoKeNeRd, little kid, etc. Even my girlfriend doesn't like me playing Pokemon because she feels like she's "dating a boy and not a man".

Because of the anime. Thanks to that, a lot people associate Pokemon with cute little animals with squeaky voices.

Also, dump your girlfriend if she can't accept the things you like.

Well the merchandise, anime, and other things seemed particularly aimed at children. The game itself is different though. There are so many mechanics little children can't even begin to imagine.

Does your wife say that about Pokemon in particular or every game? Maybe she wants attention in general :p

They hate the fact that they can't enjoy something, because they are scared of peer pressure. Idiots spend a lot of their lives worrying about what people (who don't care about them) think.

Of course gaming is not a very valid hobby if you have little free time and are in a relationship.

I had that girlfriend issue a couple days ago. Dump her.

As the rule goes, there is always someone hotter.

edit: and the next time you are doing the hokey pokey you should get her from behind, and ask her if you're a little boy now. You have to assert dominance.

That's bad advice assuming this isnt a troll topic. We don't know anything about the situation, perhaps tc plays games all the time. In that case he needs to learn to balance time between games and love.

People will always look for ways to downplay others in order to feel bigger themselves. Feel superior in the knowledge that you aren't a part of... Wait, f***...

Oh, I am not supposed to give good advice. Part of following my signature.

The rule also states that the hotter they are, the harder they are to please.
