For what is about the "childish games" words used by C3PX, I'd prefer "innocent games". A 3D fighter with a gun is not less childish than a Sonic the Hedgehog or a Donkey Kong...

Wow, I omitted most of it from the above quote, but we have really managed to sink to grade school level on our bickering here. I feel like I should be shouting out shit like "I am rubber and you're glue" or "nah nah nah nah nah".

As for modern violent games being no less childish, I think we are speaking on two different terms here.

I don't think Donkey Kong or Sonic the Hedgehog are childish. Donkey Kong is still one of my all time favorite games. Personally, I think all video games are pretty childish in general. There are certainly better things one could be doing with their time than wasting it away on video games. So I concede, all could fall under the blanket term of "childish".

I guess the same argument you are making could be made for a grown man who loved watching "innocent television" such as Seasame Street and Telly Tubbies over television aimed at older audiences.
