@1UP_MARIO Tastes too sweet like you've sprinkled some sugar on.

@stuie1234 If you combine it with pepperoni instead of the standard ham it comes with, it neatly balances out that sweetness with the spiciness of the meat. I don't know which idiot ever came up with ham. It has a way too neutral taste, so it makes the whole Hawaii pizza, or whatever it is called rather bland in my opinion, so whoever came up with that, deserves a good thrashing, far as I'm concerned...

As for your actual question: no, you're not too old. If you want to collect them, you should do so. I'm pretty sure that there's also plenty of people who frown upon grownups playing video games, but I myself am 48 and I couldn't care less about what other people think, as long as I enjoy it myself, which is really the only thing that matters.

And recently, a new member joined the site, who is 75 and only now got into gaming, because of him getting his son's old GameCube, which (along with playing The Wind Waker on it) has inspired him to go and buy a Switch, so there you go: no one is ever too old to play games, or to collect whatever it is that they want to collect.

And put 'em in a glass showcase, for cryin' out loud. They need their moment to shine...
Just put other game-related stuff in there as well, so the Amiibo's don't attract all of the attention, if it bothers you that much.

@stuie1234 If you have the money for it and it's not bothering anyone then go for it! Who cares what other people think?

@stuie1234 I have a shulk Amiibo and a Yoda infinity figure on my desk. I never give it anymore thought.

@1UP_MARIO : I prefer amiibo on my pizza.

You shouldn't let anyone tell you what you should or should not do
If you enjoy doing something, you should be doing no matter what age you are
I'm pretty sure I'll still be playing video games when I'm 90 (provided I can still do so

I think my favourite is the Wedding Bowser. I know they keep much more value like all things in the packaging but I'd rather open them to look at them properly than keep them in the packaging, I've got 11.

I only have keep Shovel Knight (can be scanned that way) and my blue yarn Yoshi (I have a green one open) sealed in their packaging.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.
Eh! My gameplay videos.

I have the full Splatoon collection (not including recolours because that would be pointless), and I have some shelf space dedicated to those. They look a lot better than most of the other amiibo in my opinion.

Most are put away because of a lack of space, and I also don't buy them as often as I used to. Pearl and Marina are my only amiibo from this year...

@Korosanbo let's hope you keep your faculties and can work out how to switch it on.

Some of mine in box cos they are still sealed (hard to find in the beginning collection). Some were displayed (common and 2 or more of the same) but I've just packed them up during Spring/ Summer cleaning. don't feel like constantly dusting them.

And you are 41, so why need permission or what others think?

My Brain, eyes, and fingers are not team player. They don't coordinate with each other.

@stuie1234 you're 41. Live proudly.
I'm 31, run an office for the us military, and have a shelf in that office covered in Nintendo stuff. Its sparked about 40 positive conversations with airmen, civilians, and colonels in the past year.
If anyone says you're too old for toys, videogames, amiibo etc remind them that you've worked hard for your money and will spend it how you please.
