Am I Getting Too Old For This?

Jon Hamlin: Don’t take anything you are about to read too seriously, folks.

Let’s be clear about one thing: I’m 24 years old. But if you think I’m actually 24 years old, you’re wrong. If I am 24 in Earth years, that means I’m 37 in Gaming years. 37! Let’s face it, gamers follow the same development trajectory tennis players do. We learn we like to game at an early age, and we do it lot, but we aren’t particularly good at it. Then we become teens, where technique and reflexes are honed and perfected. Then the 20s come. For some gamers it’s when they hit their prime. But for others, it’s when reality, life, and age catch up with us. And by the time we’re in our early to mid-30s, the best of our years are nothing more than a distant memory.

I know im too old to play in the ball pit at my daughters school, every time I look at it I want to jump in

The other parents may look at me like im some sort of a loon if I do

I "sometimes" think im growing out of gaming, im only 28, but then I play something like Dark Souls, or Journey and I think *im not "growing out of gaming, my taste in games have evolved somewhat*

Really looking forward to Beyond Two Souls

@ Hellsvacancy

You are not too old to play in the Ball Pit, they just need to make bigger ones for us too play in!

Even men and women into their 80's are playing games.

Axecution2632d ago, i cant tell if i should be lolling or be depressed at this article

No need to be depressed, I'm double the the authors age and I still do well in any multi-player if I put in the time. Actually I think I'm better now than I ever was.
