    My bf spends all his spare time playing games and I don't think it is immature. Actually I have always thought he was rather more mature than other lads his age.

    Between playing computer games or going out and getting drunk I know which one I consider more immature. And yet the later is much more sociably acceptable :/

    I remember the earlier years when he would have to order his games to be delivered to my house so that his mother wouldn't see. She would of actually preferred him to go and spend £40 on booze making a spectacle of himself then buy another game all because it is believed to be more "normal" than staying in.

    I've taken down numerous empires, used my detailed plans to rip through enimies, and you would call that immature?

    If that's what they enjoy...anyway, the games they are playing sound 'mature' - it'd be a completely different kettle of fish if they were still playing Dora's Explorer Adventure or something

    Why would it be? I consider myself to be anything but immature, I just make the decision to spend a few hours a couple of nights a week on skype with friends playing HoN/ CoD/ CSS. Its a great way to relax and catchup with people I don't get to see so much anymore. I mean I have a girlfriend, social life, sporting hobbies (cricket, rugby, 5 a side, badminton, etc.) and feel that pc games are a better way to relax than watching tv. Whats immature about that?

    I don't think it's immature, lots of my friends are at uni to learn how to design or program games and their courses involve them playing games. It's how some people have fun or relax

    Granted, games generally don't have deep complex storylines. But there are plenty of **** novels out there.
    Naturally. You may have heard of this one:

    I realise my opinion is definitely in the minority here, though being a person whose interests, intellect and consideration for certain other things is not found often today, it's no wonder I have the opinions that I do.

    I don't care to say much else on the topic.

    it depends on their level of obsession with the game. at one point i was obsessed with football manager. i could finish a season in two days. but then it got ridiculous cos i was spending more time on my laptop, with imaginary people than with my friends. so i got over it and now i only play it for a few hours a week. my social life has definitely improved.

    i don't think it's immature. i just think too much of it kills your personality a little.
