Quoted from beelzeboob:

Don't know if this was mentioned, but my favorite is when kids and adults come over, decide on a game, and ask how they start a game. Um...it's the flashing button in front that says START.
I get that some rules are difficult, but that's just ridiculous.

The amount of people that can’t figure out who is up even when the game says “Player 2, you’re up” is amazing to me too.

I think it’s an overstimulation thing. Too much going on so don’t pay attention to anything kind of scenario.

Quoted from KingVidiot:

Oh goody, I love combining sweeping generalizations with gatekeeping based on familiarity biases! Let me try.
Most adults can not:
1. Understand what rn, based, bet, pog, af or f in chat means
2. Update the firmware on their gps
3. Find the clock in windows 10
4. Set up twitch stream
5. Pay for something with cashapp
6. Live without tv news
7. Learn new skills past 30
8. Snipe a preorder

Hahaha this is great. Most kids can’t change a wagon wheel or plow a field. Those damn useless kids lol

Quoted from OCP2:

Exactly this, most of the time they play 1 ball and stop. I used to turn them on for guests, but now I only open them if they ask to play. I couldn’t care less, I buy pins for myself to enjoy.

We just had a Super Bowl party and usually I turn all of the games on for the get togethers. I didn’t turn anything on this time to see what the kids would play. Came upstairs to see air hockey, skeeball, and Super Bikes turned on. No pins on at all. The kids just don’t care. This was age 6-14.
