Am I Too Old To Be A Console Gamer? At the ripe old age of 37 I have seen many consoles and games come and go. I started gaming at a very early age and remember my first console the Atari 2600 and my first game keystone cops fondly. I was one the guys at school that would sit playing Gameboy at break time in the days when being a gamer just was not cool. I was one of the teens that would wait eagerly for the next months gaming magazine to hit the stores so I could get the lastest gossip on Codemasters next title or get part two of a tutorial so I could get past a section which I was stuck on.

GASP! Actually, I feel you in a way. I get those feelings and thoughts from time to time. I do have other things in my life that I also don't really have time for either... but when it comes down to it, I love games and the industry. I am actually older than you and I can say with confidence that I am proud to still be a gamer. Although, I play a lot less ( 3 boys ) I will enjoy the industry as long as I am able. I have been involved with gaming since pong hit Atari, why leave now? It's just starting to get to the future I imagined as a kid. Not to mention my boys would hurt me.

I'm only 21 turning 22 in June. Still have many years to go before I retire gaming. Been playing ever since my dad bought me a sega genesis. :)
