I would hate my beloved SSX spoiled with kiddy Nintendo characters.
For the umpteenth time the fact that I dislike kiddy visuals does not mean that I play only rooted in reality serious drama adult looking games. Borderlands is fine, Minecraft is fine, but if you're and adult and like Kirby then I honestly think something is wrong with you (I mean anybody, not Ganoncrotch).
So you playing an 8-bit game designed for children (yet enjoyed by adults) in Minecraft, and a very animated cell shaded game (Borderlands), is different than someone else playing an animated game designed for children (yet enjoyed by adults) in Kirby? The prejudice and stereotyping is strong in this one.
