I've found that people will only give you a hard time over things like playing games if you are making a target out of yourself by talking it down or being embarrased when the topic comes up. If you are completely upfront about it and treat it as if it's the most normal thing in the world (which it is!), they won't get anything out of teasing you and soon they're just gonna shrug at it.However it takes more courage than I had at the age of 15. I remember never letting my pals into my room for fear of them seeing the Pokémon pictures all over my wall. Today I sit down with my DS playing Pokémon during my university lectures (just the boring ones, mind you...), and the most I get for it is a strange look. Playing these games is a part of me just like dying my hair in a different colour every three months is, people who get to know me will learn about it soon and nobody thinks of teasing me for it. Try to get to that point, but never, -never- quit something you love doing because somebody else thinks it's not "cool"!
