I'm not ashamed at all but I don't speak about video games very often. It happens most when I'm around younger folks. And most of the time, people talk to me about it because they know I like it. It's not me talking about it to other people.
I started console gaming realtively late. Did a lot of pc gaming when I was young. After my teens that became less and less. Only when my kids were around 5 years old I bought a PS4 "for them" 🙂.
That was about 5 years ago. Now I'm hooked and I do talk a lot about it. I know @PretendWereDeadpersonally so we talk about it regularly. I have a few colleagues who like to game so there I can talk about gaming a lot. It is also a very nice way to keep in touch while we are all still working from home.
With other people I am very open about the fact that I (still) game but I don't go in that muc
