Why are phones acceptable to play on in public but handheld games are not?
protip: playing games on your phones makes you look like a nerd regardless. i fucking loathe people who play in public, do that shit in your home you fucking mongrels. I don't fucking boulder climb (also a hobby of mine) on the subway, it's called hobby. it's for after work/school.
IMO it takes too much of your attention. It's too easy to miss what's going on while playing games, while most other activities uses fewer senses or take less focus.
I do it regardless, but I don't pretend to care about things around me.
Who the fuck cares? I do not play handhelds in public (Mostly because I do not care for handhelds) but who cares about how you look on a fucking underground train? Half the people on those things are fucking mongrels anyways.
Because you didn't hundreds on one and very a device specifically for it vs a person with more than just games going on in their lives and has little dollar apps to entertain them between said life events.
>I don't fucking boulder climb (also a hobby of mine) on the subway
This guy has a point. I've never seen a car enthusiast drive his sports car into the train either.
Must be true then.
Nobody cares if you play a handheld in public. Maybe if you have sound blasting off the speakers or look like an autist playing it.
Because unlike what Quentin has made you believe, people really won't give a shit if you play with a handheld in public.
Playing with my 3DS while waiting for the bus or sitting on the train sometimes has been nothing but positive, also, since it's led to me meeting some new people with common insterests.
> I don't fucking boulder climb (also a hobby of mine)
maybe because there isnt a boulder to climb on the subway you fucking mongoloid.
you sure do suck dicks (also a hobby of yours) though
I find that personal appearance has a lot more to do with how people percieve you than actual activities. If you go on a bus and play a handheld, but you're generally well dressed and groomed, people do not tend to care. If you're an overweight neckbeard and wearing a fedora, then the handheld further cements their perception of you.
Fun fact: You can like a lot of weird things in life and people will not seriously care if you carry yourself confidently and are a well-rounded person.
We already discussed this. It doesn't matter if you play an handheld console as long as you are attractive.
Phone: You're just playing a casual time waster while waiting for your gf.
Handheld game: You're dedicated to playing something which requires your complete attention. You are invested in a toy. In a public space. It's not even a device for socializing. You are a creepy loner and need euthanizing.
>>Fun fact: You can like a lot of weird things in life and people will not seriously care if you carry yourself confidently and are a well-rounded person.
what you meant to say is "if you're hot as fuck irl"
i can literally talk about anime to girls for an hour and they'll actually listen
get a gym membership and a haircut you fucking nerds
let's preted people will think of you less if you do
who fucking cares
first of all people in public seeing you play are people you will for the most part ever interact with.
Secondly, even when it comes to people you will interact with, if playing a handheld lessens their opinion of you, they aren't people whose opinion you should value
I think I understood the whole "handhelds in public is for Autists" thing today when i took out my 3ds at work. Nobody said anything, or probably even noticed, yet i still felt ridiculous to say the least.
You don't need to be hot, you just need to not be a fat slob. Nobody cares what mediocre looking people do either, people only notice when its someone truly hideous, because we're already basically conditioned to hate these people and want to validate our reasons for it.
>Eating at chinese restaraunt
>Friends and I whip out our 3dses
>Waitress gets really butthurt, starts babytalking us
>She hands us the food, says "ARE YOU SURE YOU CAN EAT ALL THAT LET ME KNOW IF YOUR TUMMY WUMMY FEELS SOUR"
>Treats everyone else like a regular person but keeps coming by to make fun of us
>We make a huge mess and don't tip
>Daniel Craig will never play Monster Hunter with you
>You'll never play vidya with VIn Diesel
Why go on?
Imagine you're shopping and some fool in line pulls out two action figures and starts making them fight each other. Complete with talking and explosion sounds. Would you not be annoyed and disgusted?
That is what it's like when you play your 3DS in public!
I visit this restaurant quite a bit and the waitresses do clean the tables, maybe not when it's busy but it wasn't when I was there.
What kind of idiot makes fun of customers? Even if it's in a way that they cant blatantly call you out right there it's still a good way to lose your job. I should have complained to her boss.
> tfw tall, /fit/ and handsome
> tfw people show an interest in your nerdy shit just because you're attractive, as opposed to looking down on it
>tfw some sharp dressed black man was playing with a 3DS on the lightrail.
>tfw I got a Streetpass
>Would you not be annoyed and disgusted?
No, because I don't get angry over such mundane things. I would assume he is developmentally disabled and not dwell any further on it.
>Have to yell at a co-worker to put his fucking phone down and do his job.
>Nearly get into wrecks all day because of idiots texting while they drive.
>Cant hold a conversation with someone because they think they can talk and text at the same time.
Have I ever told you how much I fucking hate phones? It's not just the young fucks either. I seen grannies on phones all the fucking time.
I can't afford wasting my time in the bus or train. I always use my PSP, 3DS or Vita.
Video games--the traditional, long-form games, not minigames like Candy Crash--are still associated with being uncool, like it or not. Except for perhaps COD games, but those aren't on handhelds.
Handheld gaming systems pretty much only have video games, or are at least predominantly used for them.
Smartphones are used for all sorts of things. Most people aren't going to inspect your screen, so for all they know, you're texting, reading, browsing... anything. Even if you're gaming, it's probably something like Candy Crash, which is a minigame you're likely not very attached to, so it's cool.
>What /v/ thinks happens when someone plays a 3ds in public
"HAHA WOW LOOK AT THAT LOSER I'M GLAD EVEN THOUGH NOONE IS SAYING IT EVERYONE HERE COLLECTIVELY LOOKS DOWN ON THAT DISGUSTING FREAK"
>what's really happening
>Huh that guy has a 3ds time to go on with my life
Not that it matters--there doesn't have to be a counterpoint to playing video games for the latter to be uncool--but generally, being social. Handheld gaming is largely a solo activity.
I dont have a job where I can do my job and fuck off. I can't even start my part of the job untill Nigger C is done with his part of the job. And he can't start until Nigger A and B are done with theirs.
So yes, I'm forced to yell at them.
Doing anything in public is fine if you're attractive enough.
Most of you weabs are fat neckbeards, so pretty much anything you do in public is looked down upon.
Let him get into an accident and have to deal with it. Sue him for damages, or somehow get the cops to pull him over if using your cellphone while driving is illegal where you live.
No, you're not forced to yell at them. More importantly, you don't have the authority to. You're not their superior, no matter how much you think you are. And with that attitude toward your fellow man, thank god for that.
Sounds like you're taking the hamburger assembly line way too seriously.
Who are you to tell people what to do with their time?
Even if I would fucking watching bestiality with my plugs in it would be no fucken concern of yours.
I swear fuccbois like you should just off themselves for pushing their nose into things they have no part in.
>Playing 3DS while hanging out with girlfriend
>She asks me something, I look up, "Sorry babe, I wasn't paying attention. What did you say?"
>She slaps the 3DS out of my hand
>Days later, ask her a question while she's texting someone.
>Completely ignores/doesn't hear me
>Slap the phone out of her hand
People who stayed glued to their phone in public are worse than people who play their 3DS in public.
What a great plan
>Crash into the guy
>Possible medical bills
>Guy probably doesn't have insurance
>Sue him for all that money he doesn't have
>Pray I actually win the case.
By the way, cops are on cell phones all the time to.
The punishment fit the crime ;)
>Methhead waitress at my local denny's
>She's tweaking the fuck out and gets my order wrong, puts a drink on my tab that I didn't ask for
>tell her I didn't order a drink
>DON'T WORRY HON IT WON'T BE ON THE TICKET MY MISTAKE
>finish meal, friends give me cash so they can go smoke and I can go pay
>Put all the tickets and money on the counter
>She says "WHAT THE HELL IS THIS"
>Calmly explain the situation
>She shouts across the restaraunt to my friends "LUCKY DAY THIS GUY'S PAYIN FOR EVERYONE'S FOOD"
>Tell her the drink's still on my reciept
>WELL YOU DRANK IT DIDNT YA
>walk over to the table and take the tip money and pocket it in front of her
Haha don't be such a twat about it. I go bouldering too, and I don't know one person that's not tried to climb something they aren't supposed to while drunk/just bored.
For OP, it doesn't matter about either. No point wondering what everyone else thinks, just go do it if you want to.
>Cant leave until the job is done
>have to wait for tyrone to holla at his boy
I have the authority to do it. It wasn't granted by corporate but I'm on that fuckers ass until he gets to work. I'm not like you fuckers who are only there to make hours. I got shit to do.
Have you ever had a job? Any job? Anything from bottom of the barrel minimum wage all the way up to high powered financial firms...you don't just go running to the boss man everytime you have an issue. Yes, sometimes you do need to talk to your manager/supervisor/whatever when things can't be resolved but you're expected to be a grown ass adult who can work things out with other grown ass adults.
Why would people with social-cognitive deficits care about what other people think of them?
You should be embarrassed to still be using that buzzword. Shouldn't you be in a GG thread or something?
>I don't fucking boulder climb (also a hobby of mine) on the subway
The yelling guy is probably only hard to work with if you're a lazy asshole. If that's the case, you really need to fuck off and make room for someone who can do your job better.
You also don't blow up on employees every time you have an issue, especially when you don't have authority over them. I know this because I have had several jobs; all but one of them have been positions of authority.
>hey man, let's get to work
>hey bro, seriously we need to get this done so we can get out of here
>COME ON YOU LAZY ASSHOLE GET THIS SHIT DONE OR IM GOING TO MR. DICKBOSS, FUCK
There's usually a gradual climb to that point, most people don't just come in to work and start blowing up.
>tfw waiting for this beauty to come out
How is a random person's first impression of you based on how much you make? Do people carry around signs on themselves stating how much they make a year?
We're talking about an immediate first impression here. I fail to see how much money you make goes into a first impression, especially a random encounter with a random person in a public area.
Idk about you but if I see some random dude at starbucks who dresses like shit and smells bad, my impression of him is going to be a bad one. I could give less fucks how much he makes.
Rich people have a certain air about them. The way they carry themselves, their stance, their gestures. It's pretty obvious to identify a man who is well off. Even without taking his clothing into consideration.
>Rich people have a certain air about them. The way they carry themselves, their stance, their gestures
Dude, you're not Sherlock Holmes. No matter how much you believe you can read people and figure out everything about them just by looking at them, that's just not how it works.
You're stance, gestures, the way you carry yourself has nothing to do with how much money you make.
