I weep for the the next generation of gamers...

It gets worse the older you get. I'm considered childish for being a gamer and bringing my 3DS. I don't care though... Those people are ignorant.


Maybe they just spend their time thinking about business projects and possible career specialization. But, you know, you're free to bring your 3DS to a CLASS, because that's its purpose, right?
It's not like the 3ds target market are kids, anyway.

Nah, these are coworkers who work in the food industry. Most of them won't go to school or anything for their future. They mostly spend time socializing, drinking, and partying.

Video games aren't that different from mainstream hobbies/interests such as sports, music, and film. People attack video games and gamers because they're still not popular and are associated with stereotypes. But I don't care. I don't look like a stereotypical gamer at all and everyone gets shocked when they find out how nerdy I am (I'm very open about it because I'm not ashamed).

Oh, okay. That's fine then, because I also don't fit on the gamer stereotype. I'm both a gamer and a university student, and I totally with the mocking someone receives when they bring something like a 3DS. It's a place to socialize, study and meet girls, not to shut down yourself.

@NorthernRose:

I am 23 and I feel exactly the same as you. I do enjoy playing some Halo online, and picking up a Resident Evil game is fun and all, but the "kiddie" games are the ones I like the most.

This Sunday I'm picking up Pokemon Black 2 and I am extremely excited about it. When I was in high school I was mocked for playing Pokemon at my age but I just didn't care. I loved it and always will.

If only pikachupwnage would take his/her/its own advice and get out.

I bring my 3ds to school, and everyone respect me for bring it besides my xbox COD/NBA games type of friends, maybe your hanging with the wrong type of people in your school, try bring a game like RE:R ,


Bring a gaming device to school and everyone respects you...? What kind of crazy school are they running? And TC is hanging out with a wrong type of people because they prefer different types of games? Pretty shallow of you.

Of course they say you'd be better off bringing a PSP or Vita but where is their portable system at? Still in bed with their dreams?

I bring my 3DS to work and a coworker said I should've got a Vita. So I asked what would I play on it? He had no answer. But he drooled over the RE demo. Go figure.

Hold on wait a minute. TC said high school. Do those kids know they are... gasp... kids?

Ocarina came the fall after I graduated and I loved the game then. So did everyone else iirc.

Once you get past high school and the need to be mature, this wont happen much again. Only in high school do you see that kind of pointless behavior.

You have an obligation to science to keep these kids from reproducing. Any blunt object will do. I doubt the school will let you use power tools.







Joking!...kind of
