    Don't you guys sometimes see or hear people who thinks that NDS, Wii, and such NIntendo consoles are only for kids?

    I actually do hear a lot cause more than half of my friends think that playing Nintendo games are immature. (Even though I am only 16)

    Even in the Temp I see some people say that Nintendo games lack violence, and sexual content, therefore, it is kid's stuff.

    Do you guys had any similar experience? In my case I got little angry cuz my cousins treat me like a baby when I am playing NDS of mine.

    Why do Ninty fanboys like to whine so much?

    because they haven't experienced hardcore games for hardcore gamers, such as ourselves.

    Ah there was me thinking it was because they were overgrown children, who think saving princesses is better than shooting some modern international terrorists. Republicanism FTW lads.

    That ain't mature or hardcore. It's mere juvenile gaming, when you save the world from being blown up, by some modern international terroists by shooting from a first person perspective than you are a mature hardcore gamer who only plays hardcore mature games.

    If you have to use video games to assert your maturity then you're trying too hard.

    My sister tries to make fun of me for playing my 3DS but it never works haha.

    I'm 18, and to be honest, I make fun of her a lot... and that's the worst she can think of is saying that the 3DS is for kids.

    Doesn't bother me. I played my 3DS in school my senior year all the time. I could careless what people think.

    Jokes aside...

    I played almost every company's system before. Sony, Ninty, Sega etc.

    Don't really feel that it's a kiddie system/hardcore machine...

    BTW- I seen a lot of times, people above 21 playing DSes. They don't feel 'ashamed' at all, in fact they all stick weird skins on it!

    Who said we were joking?

    The Wii is a console for children and women with third party success story Let's Dance. Seriously what's so hardcore or mature about waggling the Wiimote like I'm giving a handjob. I'm not a prositute, I'm a soldier shooting to end the tyranny of monarchy.

    Meh, I'm 20 and I enjoy my 3DS and my DS, when I started highschool, most of my classmated didn't like the DS, but during the last year of highschool, all of them had already gotten a DS themselves. xP

    Also, if you really like games you won't care about what's considered 'Hardcore' since all that matters is if you like that game or not, also, I play hentai games, my family things they're for kids since they see anime characters (not during certain parts obv), but they're clearly not childish games. x3
    Point is, there's no such thing as a game that's childish or mature, it all depends on who plays it... GTA for example, it's supposed to be a game for 18+ yet most of the player base are 13-14 year olds.

    If you like something, play it, if you don't like it and care about what others think, why do you even bother to play?

    It's ironic that this thread was posted on a site filled with children.

    I don't think its immature. Games are games. Only because it lacks violence, it doesnt mean its immature.

    Actually, most of the users aren't children, most of the users are above 18 FYI.
