I just turned 20. Is 20 years old too old an age to be playing video games?

And particularly, rpg's/adventure games with a lot of grinding in them, which Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate may have.

I sort of feel guilty playing a game like this, that has hundreds of ours of gameplay, when I could be doing other stuff outside like throwing frisbees, going for walks, or running around in circles around a tree.

I sort of feel like 20+ years old gamers should stick to either playing really short games like arcade ones, or quite altogether, since we could be more productive doing other activities.

24. Almost 25. Sure as hell don't feel bad about it. It's my hobby and I love it.

If you can manage your time wisely you can put some decent hours into this game.

After seeing 50 year old people playing TERA, yeah, no. Definitely not too old.

3 24 year olds in one topic? What are the odds?


Lol, 25 come the 30th.

I'm 26 myself. My buddy plays games more than I do and he's 31.

Plus some of those Game Informer reviewers gotta be pretty old by now too.

I turned 20 back in January; life for us is only just getting started my friend. I attend university, I have a love life, I spend a ton of time with my family, and I play a ton of games. Alot of the people I play with are almost 5 years older than me; some even more. I plan to put more than 1000 hours into this game by the end of this year. On top of that I play a ton of Dragonball Z, Naruto, Grand theft Auto ect, and I dont plan on putting them down anytime soon. We all like different things; dont impose on yourself the silly values that the "matures" of society try to enforce.

20 is too old to be stealing money from your sister.
