Have you ever been made fun of for playing a game?

For me, I've been made fun of for playing these games and these are the reasons they are disliked among people I talk to.

Lego Batman 2 is a game that highschoolers should not be playing(It's kiddish?)
Batman Arkham City is a terrible game compared to MW2(which has God status amomg my peers)
Mass Effect 3 is weird for its alien sex(Even though it's optional and I've said this numerous times)
I was also made fun of for playing League of Legends because of the game's name(Seriously? Who the **** makes fun of someone because of the name of a game they play?)

Has this happend to anyone else? It's really fustrating.

Back in my day, it eventually became not cool to play Pokemon.

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

I don't think so...but I've made fun of lots of people for playing COD.
Why? Because **** you is why.

I get made fun of all the time I love cute adventure games while my buddies are playing CoD.

Not really, but playing games isn't something I regularly divulged with random individuals... most of my friends didn't care as far as I can remember.

Though, last year when SSX came out a friend made fun of me for being excited about it.

I remember renting animal crossing for the gamecube when I was younger. I caught hell for that. Only rented because of the praise I saw for it online. Hated the game and took it back. To this day I still don't understand animal crossing and my friends still bring it up that I wasted money renting it.

Oh and britneys dance beat but that's a long story

Got picked on by a Madden fanatic back in 8th grade for playing Donkey Kong Country... I showed him the game, and he shut his f****** mouth.

My sister (34, I'm 30) was over visiting with her kids and she gave me a bit of ridicule for playing Rune Factory Frontier. She's the kind of ***** who'll use any reason to place others beneath her at any opportunity. Of course, I was playing a mild game because she's crazy about not exposing her kids to media with any degree of violence in it. If I thought about it then, I should have gracefully apologized for my childish choice in games, thanked her for showing me the error of my ways, and plugged in No More Heroes.
