It's now officially weird for me to play video games.

It is now August 1st here on the East Coast in beautiful America, and that means I'm now 30 years and one day old. Hooray for milestones and all that. So I must take this time to officially retire from video games because Kathie Lee Gifford, some other bitch, and that gray-haired fuck said so.

Fuck you, Today Show! I'm weird for other reasons, but leave video games out of this! I know it's old news, but it's relevant to me now. At least I had some delicious cake today, and that was no lie.

Happy birthday dude. I'll be turning 30 in a couple days myself. We should get drunk and egg their houses.

Ah, fuck 'em. They're old, out of touch, and from a different generational mindset. Besides, give it five years and they'll all be in a nursing home cackling at paint drying while we're still shooting dudes in the face. Non-gamers need to stay the fuck out of our business. Ain't nothing wrong with a hobby.

And by the way, happy birthday!

This programme strikes me as an American version of Loose Women - a bunch of middle-aged women, convinced they're still in their twenties and constantly putting down men, except when they have one on their show, when they start swooning. Ugh.

On-topic, I agree with everything Sparky said. Video games are an entertainment medium. The general public needs to get past this idea that they're only for kids and accept that kicking back with a couple of hours on the 360, PS3 or Wii is just as socially acceptable as chilling with a film or curling up with a good book.

And yeah, Happy Birthday Dalai! Hope it was a good one for you :)

Wait, men over 40 shouldn't play video games? Why the fuck not? I'm nearing 400, and video games are still an awesome thing to do. Fuck anybody who even suggests otherwise.

Happy Birthday, duder! I know it's technically not your birthday any more, but here in the UK we are in a different time zone so it might be? Somewhere?
