  1. Your playing Super Mario Galaxy/Kirbys Epic Yarn/Ratchet and Clank and your friends walks in and says "Why are you playing this shitty kiddy game? Lets put in a real game like that Call of Duty!"
  2. You go round your Grandmothers house and she asks what have you been doing today, you say played video games. She then says "You should stop wasting your time playing video games."

I ignore both of those statements.

1. I keep playing the game.

2. If anyone asks what I did that day, I say very broad and general statements, almost never going into details unless they're friends of mine. So very few people know I play a lot of video games.

@SMTDante89: The topic is not what you would do, but how would you react to that statement.

1. Realize those people are not actually my friends because I would never be friends with someone who seriously had that type of mind and promptly remove them from my home.

2. Either start off an argument explaining how everything else is equally a waste of time by saying "then what should I be doing" or say "nah".

1. I mean come on, they may be geared towards a younger audience but that doesn't mean they're bad games!  They're truly fun in their own right!  That's my reaction.
 
2. I would probably be bothered and think to myself "oh yeah, and what did you do today grandma, knit?  Maybe you shouldn't fucking knit so much."

1. Sure. If that's what game you want to play, let's play that.
 
2. Yeah, I know, Grandma. Don't worry, I don't often spend that much time playing them.

I'd never be friends with people like that in the first place. And my grandmother wouldn't say that either. If for some reason she did, I'd probably just say one word. "Tetris". She used to stay up all night playing Tetris. She was practically addicted to that game.

1. I'd say either sit down and give it a go with an open mind or just deal with it and shut the fuck up, or if you don't quit complaining then fuck off until you stop!

I used to be the kid in 1996 until 2001 that didn't understand that Nintendo games can in fact actually BE really really fun, and had my friend said the above statement back to me I believe I may have switched my stupid attitude down, and it wasn't his fault but he simply said ok and sighed, turning the console off and asking me what I wanted to do instead,

Kids can be such ass holes sometimes.

2. I'd ask her what she thinks of spending large quantities of time in front of her TV just watching it. And then I'd ask her what's so different about what she's doing with her time compared to what I'm doing with some of mine. Then I'd ask her which is more engaging, when where you have to react quickly and make numerous decisions in quick succession OR where you just sit there and let someone else direct how your entertainment goes.

An elderly person asked me this a few months ago and she's since backed off, her original statement was that video games are for children and that men should just grow up and stop playing them.

1. I don't play COD because it's not based on skill, it's based on time commitment.

2.* Say that video games are the future of media. They had the invention of radio and TV for their generation while we have the internet and video games. In a short time her attitude won't exist because her kind will have died out. Now who's wasting their time?

Edit: *Hypothetically. I never met either of my grandmas before they died or one of my grandfathers. My other grandfather spent the last 20 years of his life getting up, spending the day sitting in a chair in his kitchen then going to bed.

1) Flip them off and keep playing. Plus, if they want to play COD why did they come over? Shouldn't they be back at their own place with their own console leaving me the fuck alone? Plus, I'd be wondering why my friends would want to be playing COD since that's not their type again.. But the first two parts hold true for someone else with friends that would play COD.

2) I wouldn't have spent the whole day playing games if I was then also going to go to my grandma's place because both are so far away from me it would be pretty much impossible for that to be true.

ignore the first one its like someone saying i dont like pixar movies because im to old for them -___-.

2nd one just ignore it that not from your generation they dont understand and they might change i once had a person in my family who thought like this but then she saw how almost all people of my generation play video games then she began to understand.

just make sure not to shut yourself off from the real world either if i had a choice between hanging with friends and playing video games id choose the former.

When I was chatting with a friend the other day and brought up Rayman: Origins (and he is a gamer, just without the internet aspect), he immediately dismissed it and claimed not to care how well received it is; as far as he was concerned he needed to know nothing other than it was a Rayman game.

Pissed me off quite a bit, considering the great time I've been having with it.

1. I say I still have "a kid inside" that I like to appease every once in a while. Yes I also like Pokemon.

2. It's my passion, the time you spend watching tv or movies; i'm playing games. Basically sitting in a chair like you just doing something different.

I feel like the first situation doesn't happen as much as the second one. But they both are steadily declining in occurance as games are more and more accepted.

For both tell them to go do one.

Well, maybe not the second one but my nan moans at me for similar reasons and I just ignore her and it seems to work.

An alternative to alienating your friends is to play CoD with them until you come across one of those mentally unstable 12 year-olds who call everyone fags and tell your friends that their 'real game' sucks.

@Hizang: 1. I don't have any friends that immature but I would imagine I wouldn't stay close friends with someone like that. If I had to argue for them I'd just say good gameplay is for all ages and HECK everyone loves pixar so how can you not love RnC!

2. Yes grandma! (respect your elders son!). Then I would go play games.
