Quote of the Day – Pet Battles

Video Gamer: “Pokemon is so childish!”
Normal person: “Video games are childish!”

Rohan at Blessing of Kings, on Mists of Pandaria pet battles

It is all a matter of perspective.

There are people out there that think playing as a talking, martial arts panda is fine.

But Pokemon?  Well that is strictly for kids!

    The video games are childish thing is about 10 years late. We are not in the SNES days anymore, where gaming was a shadow compared to the movie or music industries.

    And Pokemon is hardcore. In Pokemon.

    The “going out with a gamer” thing got ripped up and down. 10 years ago everyone would have just nodded.

    I’m not saying everyone is in agreement. I mean I’m pretty sure you could still find some people who claim TV is the devil and radio is the true source. But both are getting rarer, and more importantly, the line between adult games and kids games is getting more defined.

    Back in the day, kids and adults played Mario. Now, adults play MW, kids play Club Penguin. And WoW:MoP.

    I still think that sort of thing by and large just gets a nod from non-gamers. The nerd rage, aside from lining her pockets, probably just proved her point to herself and others with no interest in video games. Look at all the angry losers!

    It did not, after all, lead to anything like an apology or removal of the post.
