I'm beginning to think I may not grow out of video games. Happily married for two years, working a steady job, paying my own bills and still gaming like a twelve year old. I actually belong to this lovely forum of all 21 and up gamers that play together so we don't have to play with the kiddies (contact me if interested by the way, they're very nice).
It's just...there's a vast amount of adults in my life I don't inform about my video gaming ways because they will look at me like i'm nuts. I mean it's certainly not something you put on a resume.
penny for your thoughts.
I used to play video games like you untill i started using this time more constructivly working online!
I still miss playing games but I just dont have the time to waste! (no offence) I used to love Doom, medal of homour type games! basically any game i can shoot people! lol,,and the occasional driving game!...
Thats my penny spent!
AngryITChick, you're like my dream girl..
only you're married!
I do not think it matters what people like to do with their free time, but what does matter is you enjoy your activities. Personally I have never liked gaming and do not play, but I know many people my age and older who still very much into gaming.
While I now longer play console games I dod play wow and even own a couple online games..At 47 I still play Games dont feel bad
Oh, like what is an acceptable "adult" hobby? Are you supposed to automatically put away "childish" gaming at 21, 25 or 30 and take up golf? Gardening? Or how about (gag me) scrapbooking? There are all kinds of people in the world. Judging other people's use of their free time seems to me just about as useful as judging other people's choice of careers.
Having said that, I agree, probably not to be put on a resume (unless you're going for a job in a game store or as a game developer). Welcome to HP -- another wonderful place to "waste" time:-). MM
I agree with Mighty. I only do the bubble exploding game. (as much violence as I can take).
But I'm glad people like to play them since I have a son in the industry and I don't want him to be broke.
I will stop anything for a good long game of dare I say it Tetris. And I hate to admit this but half of me is a couple of years over 25. Add it to my resume---na---maybe not today
I like all of the emotional responses, makes me feel all warm inside. In all fairness the husband is a bad influence, he's my enabler. He's the call of duty king.

Not just Nintendo, but any of those old consoles? I was just wondering if any of you ever pull them out and play them? Or do you use Emulators and roms?

I understand everyone needs a hobby or a past time, but should our adult males be playing video games more than our kids!! I have an older brother, he doesn't have any kids, yet instead of doing something constructive he will play the game,PS3, from dusk til dawn.

Do you feel compelled to hide / deny the fact that you play a lot of video games?I've been gaming competitively for goin on about a decade now, yet most of my close friends still have no idea. Not that I lie about it, but I don't boast about it. I won't deny it if they ask, but I don't put it out...
