I'm nearly 50 and will play games for as long as I can :), not fussed what others may think or say. Yes twitch games are out for me nowadays but plenty of great titles released all of the time to cater for all tastes.

I'm 53 now and have been playing video games since they first came into existence. I still play pretty much whatever, whenever, every day and as much as possible. I have never slowed down and I never will. The idea that I shouldn't still be playing them at some particular age, for some unknown reason, has never occurred to me.

There's no such thing as being 'too old' to play video games. You might just as well ask if there's an age that's too old to watch tv, listen to music, see a movie or read a book (or a comic book). It's a bizarre, unreasonable and uninformed question.
Besides, playing video games will keep your mind sharper longer than any passive activity will anyway.
