Went to Starbucks this evening and couldn't find a seat. I noticed that a table was being occupied by four guys playing PSP games (and another guy on a DS lite) and there wasn't even a beverage on their table. Eventually got a seat, stayed for an hour and saw that the guys still in the same hunched over position when I left. I've started spotting similar video game cliques in fast food restaurants, food courts, even on the exercise bikes on the gym.
There's something annoying about the way these people bring their stupid hobby to crowded public venues. I'm not into games myself, but I know that these consoles have connectivity features that would allow players to go against each other online. So why can't they play at home instead of forming these public clusters?
