My great-grandparents and grandparents played board games and cards until they died. That is what they grew up with and played socially. If they grew up playing video games, they probably would have still played those as well. I am 40 and still play PC games, however, not for as many hours a week as I did when I was younger. I grew up with board games and cards, but I also grew up with the Atari 2600 and an Apple 2E. I played video games as a child, so I don't understand why I'd all of sudden just quit arbitrarily. Video games also run the gamut of interests and your interests will change as you age. Video games change with you unlike old games like backgammon, which is the same now as it was 50 years ago. I used to love playing sports console games when I was younger. Then MMO's when they first got popular, but I don't have time for them anymore. Now I like games I can jump in and out of at a moment's notice like single-player RPG's or muliplayer shooters. Who knows, when I get older I'll probably delve into more RTS or Simulation type stuff, but right now I'm not into those.

Nineteen now, and completely bored of games. Need some new material I guess. All games have become repetitive for me ; - ;

No offense, but being 19 I can see why you're bored. You were kind of spoiled by the tech you grew up around. Even when you were five the PS1 was going pretty strong. Myself being 33 I remember coleco vision and have seen gaming come so very very far since I was a child. When I was a kid graphics were pretty damn rudimentary and simple, games had to rely solely on story and gameplay alone. You want a challenge? Try playing Contra on the NES. Again, not trying to be rude, I just think that maybe you're bored of gaming due to not being able to see so much of it's evolution throughout the years.

You should stop playing games when your gaming age hits 30, which means your real age would be 50. That sounds about right.

#92 for No. tongue.gif Unlike most hobbies/entertainment you enjoy as a kid video games age with you. The thing is you can't no-life video games when you're older as you'll have more responsibilities.

1st of all, why should you stop playing them just because of the number of years you have been alive? 2nd of all, this question makes no sense. If you enjoy them play them. If you don't, stop playing them.

The age that you die. That's when.
