NBC: If you're an adult and play games, you're 'weird'

NBC's The Other View has gone on record as saying that anybody who is over thirty-years-old and plays videogames is "Weird." That's according to hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, as well as their guest Donny Deutsch.

When asked by a viewer if it was normal for adults to play videogames, Gifford responded with one of the most intelligent and thought-provoking answers she has ever given in her career: ""No, that's weird ... Xbox."

Deutsch agreed that it was unacceptable, adding, "No, the answer's no. When you're in your thirties, there should be something more on your mind, your attention, than video games." Kotb added to the discussion by referring to gamers as, “those weird ones in the basement."

The three hosts then gave permission for us all to play videogames if we are playing them with our children, before joining hands and (seriously) singing "Kumbaya" in a manner far more "weird" than anything they were talking about. 

Nice to see that these people have attitudes that match their faces ... the faces under all the plastic.
