Family didn't care.
I never did the 40kays at school (the game didn't exist until AFTER I finished High School). Even then, it was my own money that I bought stuff with. I never got gifts of gaming stuff - and gift money went on other things. My dad and brother were into sports and probably thought it was a stupid hobby. TBH, I never actually cared much for their opinions.
My wife, however, whilst she thinks my hobby is nerdy - is not otherwise derisive of it.
She actively supports me in my hooby, though. It's important for us to have separate hobbies, so we can each have our "me" time.
Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
