Age has no barrier. The biggest problem is lack of time. I basically just played in the evenings when my children and girlfriend sleeping. I want more time to spend with them, to see how growing up my son and daughter.
Need sacrifice sleep, and play late in the evening. But the games do not intend to abandon.biggrin.gif
Sorry my english!

I intend on being the first 80 year old livestreamer, putting a age barrier on something you love is stupid, that's like asking..

"At what age should I stop playing guitar?"

"At what age should I stop painting?" etc.

If you have time, enjoy yourself, and aren't hurting anything or anyone, why the hell stop?

Gaming is literally how I make my living, and I love every second of it.

The older I'm getting the less interested in gaming I'm getting. I think it also has a lot to do with a lot of the newer games just not appealing to my interests. I feel like this generation was the FPS generation, and that is great if you like those kinds of games, but I don't. And its not just FPS games, some of the worst examples of games I despise are those "interactive movies" with quick time events. If junk like that is the new gaming, then I guess you can call me a non-gamer.

I'm 46 yrs old now ! yikes. I spent a good 2-3 hours a night gaming. Sometimes on my PC , sometimes on my PS3. I enjoy it, and dont see any reason to stop. I dont drink as much or smoke as much___ as i used to, but i still game as much.
Why would i even consider stopping ? thumb.gif

Yes I suppose the console was a different more social era of gaming, locally that is.

We used to play the **** out of some of those older systems. Games like NHL '93 etc.
Because the games were simpler, it came down more to skill, (practice), hand-eye coordination etc. Actually I would consider them faster then the some of the experiences you get nowadays.

In my day...we did not know or care what input lag was.

In my day...most controllers had bite marks on them.

In my day....if you had driver problems you either walked or took the bus.
