    Yeah, at least my parents eventually left me alone. Now I hear some of these from my wife, who grew up in an Eastern European country dirt poor. So I feel like a real shit heel spending any amount of money on videogames :\ Also I can never, ever let her watch me play Dishonored, GTA5 or Hotline Miami because then I'm just a degenerate. Naturally she walked in on the 30 second sex scene that came out of nowhere in Red Dead Redemption. Damnit videogames, stop making it worse!

    I object to the outside part. Outside is so awesome, half of all video game levels are based on it.

    Some of these, especially the better use of spending money one, are gold. I don't want to hear about my spending habits when you bought a multi hundred $ bike that you used ONCE, or a 130$ bottle of designer NAIL POLISH.

    Man... I can relate to at least 13 of these, specially the "You're playing too much", "Aren't you too old for this?" or "You should be doing something more productive". Which I keep hearing to this day...

    Once when I was pretty young I completed a SNES game that I'd been playing for weeks. I waited all day for my Dad to get home from work, excited to tell him the good news. This is how it went: "Dad! I finished Yoshi's Island!" "Did you do all of it?" "Yep." "All the bosses?" "Yep." "All the secrets?" "Yep." "All the extra lives?" (like that was a thing) "Yep." "I bet you cheated."

    " Talking to yourself is not a good sign." Do you not see the headset I have on, I am talking to my friends online and do I say anything when you yell at the tv during commercials or movies?! NOOOOOOOO!!! " You're going to keel over one day for playing those games for long hours." So far my blood pressure is good and my cholesterol is low, I know what I am doing Dad for once will you just believe me.

    "This might be a little inappropriate for you. I'll have to check it out first." 36 years together, and I still don't think my mom has figured out my dad actually likes video games.

    We used to hear how video games would ruin the TV, especially Atari and NES.
  • hester2 - April 10, 2014 1:06 p.m.

    "Turn off the TV if you're going to leave it paused like that!"

    "Yeah there was Jimmy, but Jimmy has problems." Literally, genuinely, actually lol'd.
