Bitmob Writes: This question has been weighing heavily on my mind in recent weeks -- at my age (34), why are videogames still an attraction? I'm getting closer to middle age (the gray hairs on my head argue that I'm already middle-aged). I own a home and have a mortgage, and everywhere I look in the house, I notice things that I want to tinker with. My wife and I are preparing to start a family. I rarely have time for my other hobbies, like golf, music, and model building (the latter two are hobbies that I haven't pursued in years and dearly miss).
