I bought Paper Mario Sticker Star recently and the reason that I'm old enough to drink in the States makes me think that the game is a bit too childish for my age ? Or am I wrong ? Let me know NL community !!

Haven't played it. Doesn't look childish to me, just looks like a bad Paper Mario game.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

If you mean "plot should be less flat", yes, but I think that it's a good game. But I get why people are disappointed. So much hype for the game before it came out and now all people remember is the backlash of disappointment! :P

Really?
How is Super Mario Galaxy(for ex)any less childish(which i don't think is childish in the first place, even if it is which it isn't, whocares? play what appeals to YOU.) than Sticker Star?..... I could understand if you were talking about an 'ABC' Sesame street game(which i'm sure would still be less childish than something like Gears of War. I kid I kid) that had the same amount of depth as banging a fisher price toy against the wall, but Sticker Star? C'mon guy, this is silly. :p

Whimsical, cartoony', colorful and surreal fantasy based video games that have intelligent game design is what i personally crave 90% of the time. I don't care what's considered childish, thinking that playing something that is cartoon-based and isn't realistic with mass destruction, guns 'a plenty and goopy blood for the tweenies i'd say is 'childish'.

I haven't played Sticker Star yet, but I've played the other Paper Mario games and I can safely say they are in no way "childish", it's just a bad Paper Mario game. Besides, I'm sure it's more than just collecting stickers and using them in battle y'know.

I don't quite see the game as a dissapointment (mostly because it was my first PM game).
The thing I think society looks down when you are playing that game in a public space, ain't it ?

Paper Mario: Sticker Star is no more "childish" than any other Mario game. There's lots of grown people that like Mario.

Besides; the game has bigger problems, like the sticker concept not being implemented well.

I, for one, don't think that anything beyond the letters/numbers/learning games are for kids only, and even then if an old guy plays those and enjoys them, who am I to stop them? What's important in a game is to enjoy it, no matter how it looks or how it plays! Less thinking, more enjoying your time, it's not like you will live forever ;)

There are a huge amount of problems with that game, but in my eyes being too childish wasn't one of them.

All videogames playing is childish. It's a childish habit. There's nothing per se wrong with it, but it is childish because it's a sort of escapism, fantasy, make-belief.

Just like movies. :p Yet I don't understand why you'd consider escapism, fantasy and make-belief chidlish. I don't care what's considered childish, and i don't care who makes the rules. Videogames are awesome. Life without movies, cartoons, music, videogames, alcohal ect would be hell....I'd probably be sitting at the beach eating strawberries. lol

I hope you're joking or trying to be ironic, because that's exactly the image video gaming has moved past in the last, say, 10 years or so?
