I'm regularly mocked at work for playing the "wrong" video games. Specifically, I 'm asked questions like, "So, how OLD is the game you're playing now," or if someone asks me about a more recent title, another will chime in with, "He wouldn't know about that game! It's not played on the NES!" They actually bought me a PS3 and a bunch of games this last Christmas and told me I needed to play something from this decade. Kind of a bittersweet gesture. I have mentioned to them that I do play indie games that are only a few years in age, but I guess those don't count.


Your coworkers bought u a ps3 with a bunch of games! That sounds awesome!


Yes. Yes, it does... but that's fine. I got even with them.

all of the damn time because the most of the people in my country think of them like some kind of drug addiction.

Well, seeing as how i'm an IT tech and play video games. I'm often called a nerd but i don't care what they think about my lifestyle.

People have tried to throw shade at me for being a gamer.
I could not care less.

As far as being a nerd, I will shoot it from the highest mountain that I am nerd. Proud of it.
Nerds run this world.
Nerds dictate what is popular in this world.

The stuff us nerds are into now will be the stuff the rest of the world is into in 2 years.

Back then, I get insulted for asking for PS games when PS2 was all the hype and gravy.
I was poor but I still wanted to play games.

Hm... No. But I've been told by a lot of people to stop playing games too much. I don't consider it an insult.

Being the newest console doesn't mean its the best. I went a few years without a PS2 because I didn't have the funds. Besides, its not like PS1 was lacking a substantial amount of games. Plus, newer consoles mean you can find them cheaper.

No, but the verbal aggressor should back up if he knows what's best for him.

Some people ( especially guys ) will comment and say "what kind of girl plays video games?" or "video games? at your age?!" I don't let it get to me though. It rarely happens.

I've been insulted BY a video game while I've played it (like many people). I'm Vietnamese and in CoD Black Ops 1, there's this one part in the single player where you stab and kill a bunch of Viet Cong in their sleep. That sorta got me a little just because they were Vietnamese. Yet the Viet Cong brought all sorts of troubles onto the Vietnamese people, such as my parents and others of that generation. Sooo........I wasn't that disturbed. I guess it's like what Russian people think when they play shooters, as Russia is a very popular antagonist in these "Team America" games. Outside of things like that, well obviously people have insulted or thought negatively of my love of video games. I take lots of heat from parents and aunts and uncles and whatever about not studying enough or whatever. Actually, that doesn't really count as them insulting me, rather just expressing their concern about what they think is a problem. The type of games I play (which is all types) don't really get me insulted, but particular titles, like when I played Maplestory or Runescape back in le good old dayz....yeah....there were haters.

People make fun of me for playing video games and watching anime. The people at my school think anyone who plays video games are losers who plays video games 24/7 and almost all other gamer stereo types. They also think all anime is hentai.

Sure. Not so much anymore, but it's happened. I've been insulted for the type of game I play, for how old they are, I've been accused of being a fake and playing some games only to look cool. The wonders of bullying.
