    What have young video gamers turned to..

    So I'm sitting in my room enjoying Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection my friend got me and my nephews walk in.
    They are 13 and 16.

    Here's how the convo went..

    "What are you playing?"
    "Metal Gear, it's the collection, it has-"

    Then he interrupts me

    "It's not a first person shooter?"
    "No.. but you can press R1 to-"
    "What's the point of this?"
    "Well there's a long story to it, but basically you have to sneak around"
    "Why can't you just shoot them?"
    "..."

    Then a few seconds later.
    "Did you get MW3?"
    "umm.. Yeah, it's right there."
    "How is it?"
    "Well.. it would be more fun if more of my friend have it, pretty much the only reason i got it"
    "Are you gonna play it?"
    "Later, I rather-"
    *They leave the room*



    What the hell? ><



    NOTE: I have nothing against CoD, it just sucks how younger gamers today can't enjoy other games ):
    It's just a flesh wound.

    What foul little sh*ts! I can't imagine what their parents are like if they don't teach them any better....
    .......about gaming, that is.


    Also, your friend is awesome



    When I was a kid, all I ever had was my trusty old Game Boy, didn't have a home console 'til the PS2. GREAT TIMES.

    Not surprised my friend, for something like that has happened to me before as well. The #1 reason why I don't care about CoD anymore, because most of everyone else does.

    Thank you Call of Duty for warping the minds of small children. Really appreciate it.

    Blame the parents/relatives/older friends for buying them COD, a game which they are not old enough to get them selves. Oh wait, did I use a bit of common sense? Oh snap.

    I'm 16, and I'm very offended by this thread.

    How could these nephews dishonest the young gamers? I'm not a big CoD fan or enemy (I find them kinda meh), but how could they not play anything else, than that same old tired shooter they release every year. That was joykill.

    Lol. I kind of feel this way too, though I've never been a big CoD person. I am not opposed to FPS at all though (loved Bioshock!)

    I've also witnessed this on a few occasions as I have younger brothers who are into those games...

    I think what he meant was that it makes his age group (which I also fall under) look bad in terms of gaming. :/

    Same with me, only survived on the GBA for a few years before moving on to the PS2, never even owned a PS1.

    It's a shame when younger gamers can't apperciate any game that doesn't say Call Of Duty or GTA on the cover.

    I was doing a demo for UC3 and a couple of teens walked up to the TV. I asked if they knew how to play and their answer was "I play COD all the time" That wasn't my question

    Sure enough they got stuck because they couldn't figure out what to do (you had to jump over the wall and climb to the left) and gave up.

    This happens all the time but the funniest was when LBP2 came out and these teens were playing calling it a kiddy game (I found out they play COD all the time) anyways they kept dying and threw the controller on the ground. A mom and her two daughters came up and sure enough the little girls were able to work their way through the level.

    I have a cousin who makes fun of me because I like playing games like LBP or Sly Cooper and he actually calls himself a Hardcore Gamer. Now I hate that term anyways but I tried to explain to him a "hardcore gamer isn't someone who plays a lot of M rated games. It is a gamer who is good at a variety of different genres. To me someone who plays COD all the time is a casual gamer, up there with people who only play Dancing games or WOW.

    Never mind the younger gamers most of the people i know that are older than me are "cod this cod that" and they grew up playing on the earlier consoles and some vintage games but it seems that nothing else matters anymore,where as me personally am not a fan of cod at all.give me a good ol platforming game anyday.

    Pfft, I consider 18 and up to be outside of the age range I was talking about. You're legally an adult

    I think it's got to do with attention span. They don't like putting the time in to do anything, not just gaming. COD is perfect for them, no brain power involved in playing it. Shoot, die, respawn. Shoot, die respawn. Not much to it. I wonder how many kids out there would even have a go at games like Demons Souls or Dark Souls? Great games that really need dedication.

    Dr_Mayus may we at PS3Trophies benefit from your wisdom for many years . I totally agree with your assessment on what a Hardcore gamer is, I do consider myself a bit of a hardcore gamer but in a kind of relaxed way if that makes any sense at all. Anyway I can see what the OP is saying about his Nephews. My little cousin whose 10 btw is one of those gamers that only play the COD, GTA & FIFA games but I showed him some games He's never played and let him play Star Wars: The Force Unleashed but he went back to the FIFA/CoD games anyway, which was kinda disappointing but then again he is 10 still time for him to get into other games and play the PS4.
