How old will you be when stop/slow down playing, getting new games, reading reviews
 
when will you be "too old"

never! I guess . . . right?
if your brain is still functioning. .then why couldn't you be playing Modern Warfare 45 when you're 60 years old.
I know some of us are in our 30's. (Even late 30's) In ten years when you're 45 or 48..do you see yourself still being as interested. I don't see why not, what do you guys think your view on this will be into your 40's and 50's and so on..

It seems possible but I just don't know anybody over 45 who is an actual gamer.
They are out there but are these people successful? to much time on their hands..? never grew out of it?

any thoughts?

I grew up playing games. Stopped from 18-22, then got back into it. games are shifting towards a more adult audience, and video game consoles are becoming multimedia devices so i don't think i'll ever stop playing games. i'll definantly slow it down again, but ill play the popular games.

I have thought about it and 10 years ago I thought I'd stop in my 30s, but as Lucifer said, games are definitely aimed at an older audience now. Probably in my 40s is my answer. I have a Bad Company 2 buddy who's in his 40s who has over 300 hours logged.

Never. I've slowed down with the amount of gaming I do but the occasional title comes along that has me hooked like when I first played Metal Gear Solid.


A great story with gameplay can be better entertainment than some films.

There's nothing wrong with playing games just don't get obsessed.

I don't know why I would all of a sudden stop after 30+ years.

Turning 30 at the end of the year and have slowed down considerably.

But thinking about the amount of quality of games I bought 10 years ago I'd say its been a big change. Back then I get games because I had nothing else to play. Now I only buy games when there's a real good game out there (except 2K. I have to get 2K every year).

Been playing since I was like three. I dont see why I would stop entirely but I have been slowing down considerably since 15. It seems that I've developed a more casual style when it comes to gaming, a complete contrast from the 10 year old who used to spend the majority of the time on his computer playing Rouge Spear:oldlol:

Gaming has always been a part of my life, it's one of my hobbies and passions. Can't see myself ever stopping really!

I mean maybe if I meet a girl, settle down, have kids etc, I'll slow down, but I wouldn't let anything or anyone make me completely stop, no way in hell.

Basically, only my life circumstances may mean time for gaming becomes more limited. But even then, I wouldn't ever intend to stop.

Exactly.

Gaming is my hobby and I enjoy doing it. I don't think there is an age expiration date on that.

I go through cycles. Sometimes I play a lot of games, but sometimes I go six months to a year without playing any. Right now I play almost everyday.

I stopped playing games from the age of 18 until 20. Back when 2K11 came out, I got back into gaming. Idk when I'll stop playing video games, but I do know a day will come when I'll pass up the opportunity to play a game one day & it'll slowly lead to the end of my gaming days.
