    Ha!

    Though I do have to agree that Pokemans can be a bit embarassing, as it is sooo japanese, and it is genrally thought of as being for kids. When you ask your friends to trade their Charizard for your Squirtle you sometimes just have to stop and smack yourself on the head.

    FFXI... I didn't get mocked because of the game itself, but more for the amount of time I spent playing it. Fuck you Squeenix, making eight hour party quests.

    That actually went down really well with my housemates... so well I don't know what happened to the disc. All I know is that one day, they laughed (fuck you guys, I like the DoA series, beach volleyball included!) then the next, Jack had been up all night unlocking every damn swimsuit. That's actually quite impressive considering how much there is to unlock.

    I am utterly amazed somebody has played this. One of the Zoombinis devs is one of my Uni tutors and yes, he used Zoombinis as his example of good interface design for one of our group tutorials, too bad it sucked. You know its had a few sequals right?

    And that would have been in addition to the screaming lunacy that came from the game. Remember the ridiculous narrator? ("ZOOMBIIIIIINITOOOOOON!") The pizza troll? ("MOOOOOORE TOPPINGS!") The boat ferryman? ("Wel-kum to da BOAT!")

    Hell, they should make those soundbytes into a Ventrilo Harassment video. (http://tinyurl.com/5rchpm)

    Wow i can understand, but Patapon? Anyone who shits on Patapon has no appreciation for games what so ever.

    For me, i'd have to say Tomb Raider. I don't want my mates thinking i play it for the wrong reasons.

    Feel the Magic XY/XX, not only with my friends, but in public in general.
    With the sound on, I'll look like a pervert in some of the scenes.

    Pokemon: Diamond doesn't matter, since half of my friends own it. But it would be kind of weird, since I take an ungodly amount of time to get through the story.

    Oh yes, too well. Those sequels were made by a different company, which decided that they needed to make it THREE-DEE, and replace all the goofy voiceovers from Logical Journey with bland American ones. They even went back and remade the first one to comply! I was underwhelmed, and I haven't considered touching them again.

    Wow, I'm giving these games way more critique than they actually deserve.

    I guess Animal Crossing and Pokemon Diamond. I also don't like playing Super Mario World in front of people because I have memorized all the boards.

    You didn't have to write a 3000 word essay about the Zommbini's interface. :(

    Harvest Moon is awesome, I got 4 of my friends hooked on that game.

    I wasnt embarrassed about playing pokemon either, partly because my friends and I started playing it before it got huge in the U.S. I had this Japanese friend (he was born in Japan and lived there untill about 4th grade and you wouldn't have been able to tell he was foreign by the way he talked) that introduced us to it. However this was when I was in the 6th grade. I've played green on emulator but got bored with it.

    Although I have no problem letting people know I played harvest moon, I felt a little embarrassed when I bought animal crossing. And oddly I didn't feel embarrassed when I told my friends I wanted to play viva pinata when I first heard about it. Still haven't played it though.
