    I think most of us here are in our thirties, a few young guns, but a good percentage remember the Atari 2600, the second console war between Sega and Nintendo etc.

    hang up you slippers, grab your favourite gaming chair and join in.

    34 here, think I'm of that generation who will be playing games in the retirement home when my kids kick me out of my house, you know when I can't look after myself and require diapers and all that, lol

    Never to old! I'm 32 and I couldn't imagine life with out an occasional video game. I play with two guys from my work that are in their early 40's. Nothing wrong with some gaming.

    Cheers that's good to hear!
    I think it may be helping me getting older cause I've not broken a controller in rage at FIFA for years
    I've learnt to throw it at the cushions instead lol

    Your still good to go buddy, I'm 38 and have seen there are guys up to 63 still playing FPS on the XBox, look for a thread called average gamers and you will see it is a mostly senior dedicated crew who navigate through these pages, there are a bunch of young whippersnappers too, though they are not of the 12 year old screaming skull type, much to our relief.
