Can you become too old for something?


Recommended Posts

I like video games as a hobby. I grew up on them and have favorite franchises/characters. I have plushies and posters. Now that I am older I watch Twitch streams of others playing video games.

 

Something I realized is that most of the people I am watching are in their early 20s like me or late 20s. I wonder what the situation will be if I am in my 50s and still play games. Will it be weird? Maybe the new system will have come by then and I'll just stay in my 20s forever. Wouldn't that just be totally perfect? Haha

Depends. I think being interested in certain things aimed at younger people, and then being childish or acting like a child are two different things.

 

I think the whole "video games are for children" is an outdated concept, people of all ages play them, because they are forms of entertainment, like movies, boardgames, reading books, etc.

 

People mistakenly equate adult = serious and boring. But that's not true at all.

 

Video games are just a modern form of entertainment, go back one hundred years and grown men were playing cards and chess, it's the same thing.

And the price. 

A game is a wonderful entertainment and a means to express emotions.. It's become a form of art already.

I believe in the NW, people will continue to create games for educational purposes.

Look at coloring. It was a kids-only thing when I was young, and yet I remember my parents sometimes coloring with us kids. And now? Adult coloring books are all the rage! It's color! It's creative! It's so relaxing and a big stress relief after a hard day. Get out the coloring books, everyone! Let's color!

Paint by numbers is so relaxing for me!

Exactly the same. I don't play anymore, I watch streamers. I'm interested in some games but I don't have the time to play.

I'd like to get a new computer first but prices are too high for what this is worth.

I bought an older Nintendo Wii a few years ago to play with my grandson, he makes it too hard for me because he's the leader ( boss ) I have to follow him around, makes it too hard because he knows all the moves, I'm lost!    72 vs 7
