>tfw my parents believe all video games are for children and look down upon anyone who plays them
are yours the same?
Why don't you move out of your parents house then you fucking NEET. They would look down on you anyway if you weren't such a cunt and made vidya look that way. They view it that way because you are a manchild who proves to them that vidya is for children.
>tfw my dad likes vidya and still plays CS:S
My dad bought an NES when I was born. I've literally been a consolefag for my entire life.
My dad spent 5 hours playing Diablo 3 just today. Several hundred hours in and he just discovered that individual skill runes come with different elemental damage. I still love him tho.
Of course. But I had it extra rough. Jehovahs witness parents. Only system I owned was a ps2, basically our dvd player. We had a few sports games but that was mostly it. I managed to buy a few other games for it though around when I was 14-15. My parents were blaming my mediocre grades and my distancing myself from the religion on games. Eventually it all crashed down though. I got my hands on gta. They cauht me playing it. They took the ps2 and destroyed it. They took every game I owned and destroyed them. They took everything from my room but my desk and mattress. All destroyed. I was never allowed to visit my friends in the first place because religion but now I was barred from even going to school events that weren't absolutely required. They became extremely bitter and passive agressive, I would have to see the elders every week for three months then once a month until I got kicked out when I was 17 and excommunicated, half of why they were so cruel was because I tried defending myself sometimes on not wanting to be a jehovahs witness. I havenkt talked to them in years and I hope it stays that way.
My dad always expected me to grow out of them. He also threw me into furniture/stairs when I was little, chipped some of my teeth, gave me a black eye once. Last time he hit me was shortly before I started weight training.
Haven't spoken to him in two and half years.
>parents look down on it
>get reading as a hobby
>parents still tell me its a waste of time
>get a hobby into model building
>parents hate it.
>get a hobby into cars.
>parents still hate it
I give up. op best advice is just dont give a shit.
Mine are cool with it
They're all for the idea that I want to make my own video game in my own time as long as I keep an actual job
My parents are christian and think vidya is a waste of time, but they respect it as "my thing". They're just glad I'm not gay
You know it's kinda funny that my Dad was always disappointed because I never took a huge interest in cars like he did, but when I finally did I was 16, and he didn't give a shit anymore
I get roasted for playing video games but at the same time they play mobile games and farmville.
I don't get how one form of video games is more acceptable than another.
Everyone in my family thinks I'm some weirdo fuck
My mom used to bitch about vidya, but only because she wanted me to "go outside and get some friends". She loves Pac-man and Centipede though.
My dad's always been kind of neutral. Back when I was a kid we'd play Contra together. He had a thing for the early CoD games too, though he lost interest when they stopped being in the past.
Had this weird thing when I was a kid where my whole family used to hate computers. I remember when my cousin dropped IT at school my grandma said, 'Good. What a worthless subject. Why are schools teaching you to play on a computer?' Now I'm doing Computer Science at University, but I can't tell anyway without feeling extremely embarrassed or uncomfortable.
Anyway, neither of my parents particularly objected to me playing video games, but they really hated Runescape. Never understood why.
Yeah, you seem like the kinda nerd that would get sad over a parents opinion on a man child hobby. Have you looked in the mirror? You're fucking pathetic you pear shaped faggot. While I'm out there making millions, with my name and face on magazine covers, you're crying your eyes out on an anonymous image board like the coward you are because "M-making friends is h-hard!". Yeah, kinda like my dick in the girl that you like. I got married women coming at me to suck my fat dick, all while I'm making money and going down in history. See that pic? thats me, and it's also what your mom see's every night right before I go down on her. Peace out faggot
Nah, neither of them ever played video games or know anything about them, but they say its no better or worse than any other hobby, and its better to do something like that than just go out, do drugs, and get into trouble and stuff.
My dad actually likes videogames himself, though he doesn't play much anymore. My mom, however, says the same thing your parents say, but in turn I just tell her that she should think for herself rather than have an opinion based on everyone else's. I suggest doing the same thing, anon.
My dad doesn't like them, but he also knows that they gross more than seventy billion dollars annually. Whether they're for kids or not is irrelevant, it's the fastest-growing, most profitable medium of entertainment on the market.
My dad feels like it's a waste of time but will only start bitching when I play for long hours which is rarely since I'm slowly growing out of them and most video games nowaday don't really grab my attention long enough for me to play more than an hour or two.
Your parents are retarded, OP. There's no evidence to support them.
My family loves fighting games like Tekken but they don't understand the e-sports scene on vidya. Playing Tekken can get real competitive between my and my cousins/dad
I believe it's a real popular series in my parent's home country,
Other than that, I don't think they really care for vidya all that much.
Stop fucking living with your parents faggot. Anyone who looks down on someone for enjoying a hobby, that isn't something extremely deviant like pedophilia is a cunt. The same people who say shit like that also spend their time watching garbage television programming
Are you parents niggers?
No because my parents were 80s gamers and kept playing games with me during my childhood and even later on.
My dad could kick my ass at Mortal Kombat 2 as Raiden and even could perform his Fatality.
Your parents are just your biological factories... stop caring what they think.
If you just enjoy games plat them, but if it hurts your everyday life and you don't have a job because of them, try to focus on pulling your life together and after that happens combine it with video games again
>playing far cry 3 in the living room
>capturing a base
>dad walks in and watch
>captured the base allies starts comming to the base
>"What the fuck are you doin anon? Kill them!"
>"but dad they are allies"
>"Motherfucker i didnt raise you to be a pussy"
>Dad walks out and goes back to work
They don't but their generation in general tend to blame shit on tech and it's never their fault even when they clearly are incompetent in using the tech.
The number one excuse is how should I know how it works, followed by I don't have time to learn.
Some of us don't have friends, so family is the only form of social interaction you have. That doesn't mean we're dependent on them.
>The same people who say shit like that also spend their time watching garbage television programming
this is so fucking true, a family member of mine talks shit about vidya and technology in general, meanwhile they're sat on the couch for hours watching some shitty diva program about latina maids having affair or someshit
The only family member I connected to was my brother, via Simcity. We would spend a lot of time planning our cities, making suggestions for each other, etc. In Simcity 4, we shared a region and created all sorts of cities built around different ideas. Then Lucy Bradshaw took over Maxis, Societies came out, he hated it and hasn't been into games since.
Fuck EA. That company deserves to die like all the studios they've run into the ground but you shitstains will buy Battlefront and give them millions.
There's a world of differences between small cults like Jeohvah's Witnesses and mainstream religion, you dipshit. It's like saying white people should all be shot because the tea party exists.
>parents always hated video games because they're sure it's the reason I'm not a social person and as such not "normal"
>never bonded with them because they'd insult me at every occasion
>recently try to play MGSV with my father
>"wait, you still play games? what have I done wrong to have a child like this?"
>"I'm too old for this anyway, but please don't ask again"
I never understood why video games are seen as the incarnation of evil by anyone over 20 and I still don't.
And mine hate gays and I'm still in the closet and a /v/irgin.
