My brothers. My friends. Other players. It’s what Pokémon has always been about for me.
… But I slap down the case for my coworker who walked in and she giggles and says ‘Pokémon?’ as she rings me up. I’ve heard that giggle before. You know the giggle, the ‘isn’t that a kids game?’ giggle.
'Yup.' I reply, as I swipe my debit card to pay for it.
'And 10am sounds like a good time for lunch. See you in half an hour'. I walked to the back of the store and left her staring at me dumbfounded.
Random quotes from the comments.
I’m really jealous. Pokemon for me was just a “me and my cousin” thing. My brother was “sorta” into it, but not really[…] Eventually he stopped being into it, though. Pokemon, for me, wasn’t that social. I was pretty much a loner and I still am.
I love Pokemon, though. Despite not being able to battle and trade a whole lot it was still a fun game. It was you against the world. A dangerous world full of monsters you could fight and capture for yourself. A world with interesting lore. A world that’s (usually) being corrupted, either by powerful Pokemon or some douchebag gang.
… Haters going to hate. Pokemon isn’t just a kids game… Don’t judge me because I’m playing what I love! :P
I’ve recently transfered to UMD from a two year college. I’ve been trying to meet people and everything, going to events, participating in clubs, etc but because of my workload and the fact I live off campus I haven’t really hung out with very many besides my flatmates.
Well I got Pokemon White over the weekend and since I didn’t have too much work to do today I decided to play it in class.
Holy. Crap. I was bombarded. Didn’t get any playing done cause I just ended up talking to people about playing it! Even those people who were like “Pssh, you’re playing pokemon?” immediately amended “Man I remember Pokemon, that shit was AWESOME!”
Yeah man, fuck demographics. Good games, good media, good anything appeals to the human condition, not the 5-12, 16-23 or whatever condition.
