The 2 Exclusive RE titles and multiple fighting games for it show that there is a market for more than just children.
One of the proud people that still plays Mirror's Edge to this day.

VLR is NOT for kids. Try talking to anyone under the age of fifteen, unless they're a science nerd, about Schrodinger's cat. Oh, boy...
Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

My nephew started playing GTA when he was five, so what the hell is a "kid's game," technically? It was once common for systems to aim at all ages and I don't see that as a bad thing now. Those pathologically insulting Nintendo fans need to grow the f*** up.

Well, that's another situation entirely because those games really AREN'T for kids. At least not ones nearly that young. You might want to have a talk with your siblings about what their child asked them to buy.

A long time ago, I saw an old black man with white hair in a coffee shop playing Oot on a 3ds. He didn't seem to give a f***, and I think that's how the rest of us should feel too.

You guys have to realize the the target audience for the 3DS is children. So the public will generalize the 3DS as a child's play thing, or "Gameboy".

But that doesn't stop the 3DS from getting awesome games that can be enjoyed at any age.

This board is really insecure about 3DS and the image portrayed for the public if wielding one of these.
Get over it and enjoy the 3DS, either in the privacy of your space, or if you wish, play it in public. Just expect the public to possibly judge as immature. Can't do anything about an ignorant society now can we?

the target audience is not children, it's everyone.
1st party games are mostly designed to be colorful and funny for children, but still able to provide a good challenge for mature gamers.
if it was really aimed purely at children the games would be a lot simpler.
