Yea and there are tons of people who have hobbies I find silly but I don't judge them on it. Unfortunately the same can't be said about video games. The stereotypes are lame and outdated about games. It's changing though as people have grown up with it more than ever. The NES generation on up is more accepting of it.
A lot of times people connect being a deadbeat/loser/basement dweller with video games and make lame jokes if they overhear me talking about games. It's a strange occurrence since so many people have played/experienced games these days.
We pre-game before going out but not that type of pre-game.
example, things said in public, followed by public reaction
-"Hey man wanna come over and play some NCAA before we go out?" -nothing wrong with that, just guys being guys
-"Hey man wanna come over and play some call of duty before we go out?" -kinda nerdy but hey millions of people play call of duty its not that bad
-"Hey man wanna come over and play some Skyrim/Borderlands/Mass Effect/(any game that isn't CoD) before we go out?" -omg these guys are nerds who would play that before going out
-"Hey man wanna come over and play video games before we go out?" -lol they're not fooling anyone, we know they ain't going out anywhere. I'm surprised they made it outside their parents basement
Does not compute.
