I get "defensive" only if their explanation warrants it. If their argument has merit or its just their overall taste, i have no reason to try to change it.

To elaborate, someone is saying "I wish the 3DS had more mature games"; do you take a defensive stance on the matter? If so, do you feel that you are defending the games, or yourself? Do you think that games that depict intense violence or obscene sexual content are typically immature?


No. I just ask what they mean. Mature has two meanings. One meaning says that mature is blood guts and big boobs. The other is a very serious adult storyline, something like a film noire or agatha Christie novel.

No, but I don't mind when others do it if the guy complaining starts bashing good games as being bad purely for being "kiddy", when they're not actually kiddy. Generally these are the types of people that think maturity=blood and swears, and nothing more.

Unlike the masses on here, I don't care. People love and hate whatever to their discretion. I don't carry on like some disturbed kid like plenty on here do because they say something contrary to my beliefs.

If so, do you feel that you are defending the games, or yourself?

All that concerns me is that I like it. This is how it should be.Can't say the same for the lulzy others.

Do you think that games that depict intense violence or obscene sexual content are typically immature?

How games are perceived to everyone is always subjective. It's a matter of that particular individual expressing their opinion of a game, and the masses handling it either maturely or like some disgruntled and entitled child.

You see, some on here take what people feel about a game and what not with a grain of salt; whether they agree or disagree with the person. Then you have others on here (particularly when they disagree with someone) who have an aorta palpitation and feel the need to get up in arms and spew their obligatory defensive gibberish because they cant handle a simple difference in opinion. That is the general consensus on any debatable dialect on here or in general.

Too bad some people who have opinions also use it to bash others for what they like.

It all depends.

If someone just simply states "I wish the 3DS had more mature games" then no, I wouldn't. I'm not invested in this piece of plastic enough to get mad at the valid opinions of others.

If someone says " LOLZ The 3DS only has kiddy games for BABIEZ ROTFLOL" I'd be inclined to correct them, and I wouldn't call that defensive either.

Mature games is an oxymoron.

Plus, wasn't it Mark Twain who said to be truly mature you have to put aside all childish things including the fear of appearing childish.

ie: only children want to appear mature.


People want to be hardcore gamers too.
I don't know why because I wouldn't want to seem superior by saying I play more games than another person. lol

Such interesting responses~. I would like to note the lack of honesty; not a lack of honesty necessarily in what was posted, but a lack of honesty in who didn't post to cop to it.

There are definitely people who fit the idea of a defensive person with respect to mature games lacking on the 3DS.
