imo there is no limit. unless you have no life, never had a date, live in your parents basement, get no exercise and all of that.

i think you can play them at any age, but dont make them as much of your life when you get older.

Never too old. If you can manage video games and take care of your responsibilities, why the hell not?

well considering alot of retirement homes have Wii's to give old people easy excercise activities there probably is no 'acceptable' age limit these days.

i know alot of old adults that play games like golf on their computer. shooters i'd think would be acceptable for anyone up to 40'sh, but i really look at it as a generation thing. I think theres a cutoff around that point where the 'videogame' generation grew up.

i think serious videogaming is still socially unnaceptable at some point, but casually its ok at any age.
