Do You Think That Video Games Are Childish?

I hear a lot of folks consider them childish. Not me. You can never be too old to have fun.

I love that video games are considered childish when there are all of these adult themes applied to games to create a relateable or artistic experience.

I look at games Metal Gear Solid and Shadow of the Colossus and wonder how people can consider these games 'childish' when they focus on big-picture issues and ideals that I find some children don't full grasp.

i can careless at what other people think or say .... its their opinion ...

i mean if worried about that, you would change at who you are. just to be at what they want you to be, a no body and all the same ....

let like always say, cheque your feelings at the door ... =)

im glad, i got into games ( growing up with the original NES back in the day ) and still enjoy at what they offer. a sense of playing a lost art or a form enjoyment that most people wont sit down with it and give it a chance. they just get into it, at whats hip and not really enjoy the feeling or the pleasure of playing a game.

Right now, we have games that take all the horrors of war and crams them into a 5 hour single-player campaign. Mind you, games like this are considered best-sellers.

Video games aren't childish. Let me use another allegory: because we have movies like Frozen and Shrek, does that mean that films are childish? Because we have Little Golden Books and easy-to-learn-reading books, does that mean books are inherently childish?

Video games, for some reason, have not escaped the doubt and skepticism that keeps it from being labeled a proper work of art. When we can talk about it freely without calling it childish, I think then we can properly respect the form.

Nope. Anyone who does is a nut job

Much like movies, books, and the likes, there are plenty of games that explore complex and mature themes, or material inappropriate for kids, etc. so to right them off as childish is pretty foolish

Some games may be geared towards children, but as a whole, video games are not childish. Any age can enjoy a video game.
