Interesting premise but I would hope the majority of guys on here (I'm guessing starting from the late-20s/early 30s on up) really don't care what others think about what they play.
Viva Pinata reminds me of Animal Crossing (which everyone in my house likes to play) and we all like Viva Pinata as well. For me it is a nice little diversion since I have such a short attention span when it comes to games.....ie I have to bounce around from Civ IV, to Gears of War, to a Live Arcade title, to an old NES or SNES game, to Viva Pinata, to Oblivion, to Sid Meier's Railroads, etc.
Heck, I'll have some DOAX2 achievements in a little bit (getting the game sometime this week) so if I can deal with the heat Mrs. Wok
will apply to me for playing that game
...someone razzing me about Viva Pinata will be a piece of cake.
