Um, I see you've all pretty much sorted this out, but if you have any questions for a bisexual female, I am happy to help.   :P

Sir Dino

I was scrolling through these last three pages to see how this conversation started.
The only thing I grasped was the following.

I think I set a new record on my inactivity-periods (4 months or so I guess) ::)

Lots of things have happened in my life. I've both moved to Gotland and go to a university there right now, but everything still looks the same here to me. Mostly the same people with some new faces here and there.

And btw, I didn't see a single person play something other than Animal Crossing in my 3DS-friendlist for maybe 2 weeks. Same things seems to be going on with X/Y now ^^

There's a word for this, I just can't figure out what it is:

I need a new cell phone, but all basic phones look like kids toys, but kids today all play with smart phones?
You see, we're entertainers. We must keep people smiling. No matter how grim things get, we must always be optimistic!

Irony?

Could you be a bit more specific, please?  Not sure exactly what you're going for.

the_last_sheikah

I guess irony, but more fancy and specific.

It's just weird that when i say kid's toy, I mean when I was a kid, but now-a-days play with smart phones.

Paradoxical maybe?

Mashi

Can't really think of a word either.  Maybe standards now are incongruous to those in the past???  idk

Maybe we could pretend what you're describing to be ironical so that ironic and ironical don't mean the same thing anymore.

Soooooooo... a paradox?  Yeah, that sounds right, paradoxical, I was right.

1. "Ironical" isn't a word.
2. The situation you're describing isn't a paradox. At all. It's just that the definition of a "kids' toy" has changed.
3. The best word would in fact be ironic because a device typically thought of as used by older teens and adults is now being used by children.

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.

Mashi

ironical
Web definitions
ironic: characterized by often poignant difference or incongruity between what is expected and what actually is; "madness, an ironic fate for such a clear thinker"; "it was ironical that the well-planned scheme failed so completely"
http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=ironical

Ironical is actually an archaic form of ironic that's still in reasonable usage.

Anyway, I concur with your other points.  Paradox tends to refer to logic than anything else.  I can't really think of anything better than ironic though, at the moment.
