Fell like I'm in my little world around where others say games are a waste, is that all you buy.

Meanwhile they either drink , smoke & can't pay their bills.

I like to buy the latest games & devices but others in my circle of relatives always look at me like I'm stupid for spending money on games.

Which in turn makes me feel like s*** even tho it's something I enjoy alot.

Ya it gets to me & brings me down.

Anyone els in the same boat?

Nope, sounds like you need better friends. My Wife doesn't mind, since I can still pay bills. My family thinks its cool.

Talk it out like adults. If you handle your bills and responsibilities, why should they judge your disposable income?

Jealousy is a b****. As long have your priorities straight, that's all that matters. Now if you're on welfare and sport an iPhone X with a bag of weed in your pocket, then they have something to criticize about. Don't be that guy.

I know the feeling though. Some of my friends and family members live pretty basic lives and barely get by so when my wife and I decide to do things like go on last minute vacations, we don't even bother talking about it and they don't ask in most cases. Meh, f*** them.

No, my wife also gets me games all the time and I usually get a game from my mom for Christmas. On top of what I already buy for myself throughout the year. Everybody I know, knows my favorite hobby is gaming and they don’t care. They know my bills, house, wife and kids are priority and I only buy games when I know I can.

My Dad watches me play when we visit my parents for a weekend. He tries to figure out what is going on, it is usually hilarious. I'm 33 and he is 65.

I am not sure why I should care what other thinks of what I do with my money and free time. Luckily for me, my parents are cool with it. The rest of my family I don't know and quite frankly I don't care.
