There is no average age to play video games. Its only an average of what age group is most represented. You can play from whatever age you understand how to use a PC to the day you die.
Intellect is not a cure. Justice is dead. Fear, recrimination, innocence, sympathy, guilt, waste, failure, grief, were things, emotions, that no one really felt anymore.
Reflection is useless, the world is senseless. Evil is its only permanence.

My very first game was, "Shinobi" for Atari. After that came, "Smash Bros" on Nintendo, 3DS and I remember playing a sewer rat infested extermination game on my Sega CD.


You're remembering things very very wrongly. Shinobi was (to the best of my knowledge) never available on the 2600. It went straight from arcade to the Master System (what with it being a Sega game). And no, the 3DS did not come chronologically between Atari and the Sega CD, as you probably well know.

Edit: Google says it did eventually come out on the Atari ST, but not till a while later. I guess technically I stand corrected.


I had this for the Atari ST. The animation/graphics were something else back then.

A relative bought it for me for XMas. I never spoke to them again.
I'm 30 something as well.
We have had so many game industry crashes and whatnot that it doesn't bother me. To be honest last week I've done me some research regarding games I'd like to play and I found that more of them are in the making today than I cared about in past two or three years. There's dayz standalone which might turn out to be awesome (epoch is planning to go standalone too), there's Rust, there's Grim dawn and Kingdom Come. God damn.

I quit gaming when I was about 22 or something, both me and my PC were "burnt out" and I thought I've grown too old lol. PoE brought me back to the subject with a full force to an extent where I am starting to worry that I game too much.

I know there will be time that I'll think that "they don't make games as they used to in 2014" and give up for a couple of years just to come back yet again. Life is life and you can't keep on doing one thing non stop.
Be ready. You're not paranoid, you're PREPARED.

I quit this game every few months and so should you to continue playing it in the future.

The device is believed to have been dropped
I can relate to the OP.

I'm mid 30's and still game in-between all the responsibilities I have as an adult now. I also ask that same question. Have I outgrown this? The answer always comes up "No". Just like any other long hobby of mine that I still partake in. Snowboarding, for example. Video gaming is just another hobby. Some people like to go out and drink at the bar. Some people like to watch TV at night. I like to play games.

I do, however, find it increasingly difficult to play these newer, dumbed down, hold-my-hand games that I feel plague the industry. Or maybe I'm just too old-school to understand the change, or embrace it.

Thank God for PoE. Complexity and depth of older games, but with a facelift.

im only 21 and i have the same problem, i just can not play most of the new games, i tried and i either get really bored or really angry at them(especially when they are sequels that ruined the series because the company wanted a larger audience)
