This Comic is inspired by attempts to try and explain what guilds are to my mother, who doesn't play video games, and thinks that fact that I do (as a grown adult) is silly. You can probably make a pretty good guess how successful I was at it.

The best argument to make that video games are not silly to play as an adult?

Money.

They're a booming business, and if you're involved in 'em, it's a nice payjob. You can always give the excuse to your mother than you're hoping to grab a game tester job! :P

It's not an argument that can be won

It doesn't matter how much money is made or how "adult" a game is. Video games will always be either a waste of time or something best left to children to her. As a rule of thumb if she's held the same opinion on something for over 2 decades it's not changing any time soon. Also I live in Wyoming, there are no game testing jobs here. The IT sector of this state is very much lacking. Game testing does not pay worth shit and certainly not better then my current job.

Ultimately it does not matter what she thinks. I haven't lived at home for a very long time and as a financially independent adult I can do whatever I want with my time and money regardless if my parents approve or not. That includes staying up way past my bedtime to play video games AND having ice cream for supper.

I like it so far. One can't really go wrong with Star Wars...except maybe George Lucas.

Here's hoping our new Disney overlords do not prove that statement wrong.

Mothers will never understand video games. Well except for maybe Animal Crossing...my mom killed hours playing that game on the GameCube.

If's "fair" use, you left out an 'i.'

I had a similar experience with people on my mom's side of the family. I was the only girl in the family who loved reading comic books and other geek culture stuff instead of hair / clothing / make-up / boys and was thus viewed as the less mature teen in the family - almost downright childish.

Apparently shallowness and unrealistic world view are traits of a mature female. Who knew?

(Oh my God I just realized how freaking long I've been working on my webcomic without it ever seeing the light of the internet. I was working on something starting at twelve.)

Yea I'm lucky that my younger sister is really into geeky things like I am which is odd considering that both our parents are very much not geeks. We went to the Denver Comic Con for her birthday this year. OMG did we have a good time I bought lots and lots of comics.

I worked on this comic for about 7 months before I started posting anything. It seemed like like forever but I'm glad I spent that time. Something that is important to remember is no one cares when you post your first comic but they generally start having an opinion about when you post your second and third... ect.
