    Errrr, I think I can see how you feel. I also sometimes feel ashamed when playing "Super Paper Mario" in front of younger people (I'm 24) who think GTA and Formula games are THE games.

    But why bother ? That's great to keep a kid spirit in a way, to see magic at an age when some don't see anything than articulated pixls.

    I'm with you man !

    I play so I can hang around the people playing them.
    For me, it's not the choice of Diamond or Pearl, it's Shota or Loli.

    I will not be playing pokemon but I have no qualms about playing "kiddy" games.

    All video games are the same to me, they all require the same level of embarassment. I mean playing a video game or doing something in real life. Video vs Real people. So to me it's nothing, whatever you enjoy you enjoy and stuff everyone else since it's your life, live for yourself not others *shrug*

    Shame on you

    I'm embarrassed that you *really* care about what 13yr olds think. Especially the immature ones who can't tell a good game when they see it. Anyway for all y'all feeling guilty here is an intellectual defence/feel good message:

    We are a new 'gamers generation'. I don't see the pokemon games as a 'pokemon game'. I see it as a good 'rpg game'.
    On a sidenote, i'll keep playing games (including pokemons) till im 80+.

    I'm 19 and I like Kirby and Pokemon games, but I also like Prey and the GTA series. My tastes are weird...

    I'm 34 and have always hated pokemon. I don't think its just a kiddie game. I thought the all pokemon thing would have blown over by now.

    Pokemon only got made gay from the cartoons and trading cards. The game is still hardcore.

    I'm 26 and I think when I go into the pub and sit on my own at the end of the bar playing pokemon until my mates arrive I look SUPERCOOL [​IMG]

    (By the way, when I saw the topic I thought it was going to be something NSFW. You disappoint [​IMG] )

    27 here and I don't really care about pokémon. But hey, you're enjoying yourself, and not harming anyone at all. Why feel guilty?

    PS : I agree on the GTA comment. I used to stick fireworks in a frog's ass when I was seven years old and found that funny, nowadays, I see videogame and cartoon violence as "stuff for kids who want to look cool", and largely prefer a mario game which has slick gameplay.

    I don't think that a pokémon game has an age on it. I think there are more than enough players older then 20 or so. I don't care what other people think about it it just like the games. When i'm buying the game in the store i'm not saying that its for someone else i even say ha finnaly its here so i can play. I really don't care.

    Another thing the pokémon Trading card game for example, well there are players there, the players are more that 80 % over 10 even 60% of them are over 16. So i think that pokémon is for all ages.

    "kiddy games" rule...

    and probably...most girlfriends would find something colorful more alluring than a bioenhanced space marine shooting arms of an ugly looking alien ... or sumthing


    and i'm gonna give pokemon another chance now on the ds...

    i've never played pokemon alot cause i found the battle system too simple, and hated the fact that all pokemon having an Iq of only 20 can only remember 4 attacks :S

    wtf is up with that.
