As a somewhat respectable grown-up who makes a somewhat
living on the Nintendo DS subculture, I have to stop myself from trying to see what someone's playing whenever I spot a handheld gamer in the wild. I restrain myself for two reasons:
- I like to keep up this illusion of me being a somewhat respectable grown-up
- I don't want anyone mistaking me for a pedophile just because I was stealing glances at some kid's Piplup
Children, though, have no such reservations with running up to a stranger to see what he's playing ...
