It really depends on your general social environment if you ask me. There are two types of people everywhere; I know a retired fireman regional commander with tons of degrees, and he's a huge nerd (mostly PC gaming, though nowadays he's more into RLRP and Halo/CoD dioramas), and I know people with minimum education who still frown when I tell them what I'm doing in my pastime.
There are also those who like to think of themselves as "responsible adults" from a very early age, and look down upon gamers, like one of my old classmates whose hobby was learning. Exclusively. 6-22. Actual school material only, zero working ahead. She always told me that I'll work in a McDonald's for the rest of my life if I keep playing games, now she is a receptionst in a hotel. These types will always think that computers are for children only, yet they usually just vent their frustration for not having any meaningful hobby except binge-watching some cheap Latin-American grandma series and the only time they get excited is when the new X-Factor season starts.
TL;DR: just don't give a fuck what anyone thinks about the way you live your life.
