I'm 24, I already know I'm too old for Pokemon. Do I care? No. Am I going to go on a date and immediately tell the girl I play Pokemon and watch Power Rangers and collect action figures? No, but if she asks what type of games I play, I'm not going to lie. And walking into my apartment she's going to see that I collect stuff and am a nerd, immediately.
I recently started a new job (on Monday), took not more than a few hours in, to begin telling people what I was playing (because I was playing Pokemon on my break).
I'm not ashamed of the things I like to do, watch and play. But I'm also not going around flaunting those things around for everyone to judge me on. And if we're just acquaintances and not really friends and you decide you want to add me on Facebook, prepare to be bombarded with nonsensical updates that you don't give a damn about and can't fully understand. Cause that's just how I roll.
XBL: D4rkKn19ht1 It's a slanted perspective to see the extraordinary through ordinary eyes.
You're never too old for Pokemon! I'm 30 and by that time you stop caring about what people think about you. Just enjoy the things you like, especially something as harmless as Pokemon.
To me Pokemon is one of those games that make you feel good, are uplifting and heartwarming. There aren't enough games like that, and instead we have plenty of violent and stressful games where we kill each other... Go figure....
