Ever been told that you’re “too old to be playing video games?” Send them this article and get back to your gaming.
41 years old, and still gaming. : )
Games like The Last of Us, Journey, Heavy Rain, Bioshock Infinite, etc. Are basically for adults. Not just for their rating but the story and the depth it goes to. Games have developed so much throughout time that one simply can't see it for kids anymore. Ignorant individuals that have no idea would eventually bring up how video games is a kid thing.
38 here...don't plan on stoping anytime soon!
I was hoping this article would take a more mature or in-depth approach. But he basically said "I don't understand the critics. I've played games a lot. I like games. Games."
I have an "open" 7 letters...[email protected] Seriously, as if many of the more "adult" things to do are truly any more adult. Watching grown men play games??? (sports) Watching grown men argue and toil and nothing really getting done? (politics) Let's not even start on the games being played in relationships! Facetious? Yes! Any more adult than playing video games...it's a matter of perspective...or lack thereof.
Well considering 90% of modern video games are made for adults and that the average gamer age (statistically) is 36. Too many ignorant people, still living in the 80s. I'm only 26 now, but you can bet i'll still be gaming when i'm 60.
My name says everything. I'll game until I can't. Pushing 50, btw.
I'll game as long as my mind & body allow me to :) Long live play!
Never too old for the likes of Mass Effect or Mario~
Working on an informative documentary on the social acceptance of video games. I think perspective is the key, not arguing.
Gaming more than ever at 40
Dude my retirement scenario is of me in my specially designed games room, with my VR goggles on, gaming the days away and occasionally taking my pills. Gamer since '87, gamer till the day I die.
Age is only a number. To me a video game knows NO age limit. At 58 years old I love to play video games and have been doing it since the late 70's. The only time I will stop is when they pry the controller out of my cold dead hands Playing games is my drug of choice and the way I relax after dealing with life in screwed up world! To the author: If you think your old at 30,wait till you get my age. LOL! Screw whoever says your to old for video games!It could be worse ...you could be some drunk slob passed out on the floor of a bar some where! BTW,I have a gaming friend that I have known for over 15 years now and hes 71!!!!
