Think you'd be surprised, Grapost. I know tons of gamers in their 20's and 30's. When I played WoW, 3 of our guild members had just gotten back from Iraq and played to unwind. Around 1/3 of our guild in total were servicemen. 1/3 were college students. Maybe 1/6 were middle to high school range and the other 1/6 were 25-45 years old, most with jobs. Granted, there's always 1 or 2 of the stereotypical jobless basement dwellers.
The gaming community is pretty much a cross section of "normal" society.
Gamers are losers that live in a fantasy world. Are usually very immature and nerdy. A Common slang term for them is "pinhead."
I am not a loser. I am not immature. I have no problem with being a little nerdy.
My brother is not a loser. He is not immature. He is the least nerdy human being I know. He's very large. He's got a lot of tattoes. He's a bouncer and college student. There is zero chance you would guess that he's a gamer.
I won't even bother continuing this stupid debate. Either you have met 1 gamer that you disliked, you enjoy insulting people for no reason, or you simply don't know any beyond the fact that they play games occasionally. Such ignorance.
Nate, me and my sister were talking about this a while back. We were laughing at the fact that the "nerds" that everyone made fun of in highschool are now making 100,000+ a year programing computers and testing games.
So what if it seems a little childish. To each their own. If it makes them happy, more power to them.
Not to mention that we wouldn't be able to use the computers that we sit in front of without them.
Their like the guys who are grown up and still play with model trains and build huge miniature model train layouts in the basement.
Big men playing little kids games. Most grown men are instrested in playing with GIRLS, not video games. Gamers are social retards.
