RPGS and Older People
« on: January 11, 2011, 05:28:49 AM »
I am 58 and wonder if people my age can play games. I have a great imagination and wonder if there are people
out there who play games who are older.  Any information and links would be appreciated.  My email address is jimmyr1952@comcast.net.
Thanks.

Interview with 75 year old gamer

I guess the only limit is an individual's desire to game =) I'm in my mid-40s and would play a helluva lot more games if I had the time. But that's the catch: they really are time sinks. The mean age of gamers will obviously increase due to Western demographics - and today's 20-30 gamers are unlikely to abandon gaming as they age.

you are what you think you are,
what you feel you are, and
most importantly who you tell yourself you are.
so think think positive.
life's to short for negative thinking.

I know older people who play games, I'm friends with them as well. We play WoW on the proudmoore server. I enjoy it quiet immensely as they have a great sense of humor, and can raid better than most people my own age! I don't see why you couldn't play games at any age, I plan to play games beyond the grave that's how much I enjoy them!
