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.


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.


What date back in January? I also turned 20 then.


The 29th what about you?

God I hope not, I'm 35 and all I do is play video games and when I'm not playing them, make video games for a living.

20 is probably too old to be leeching video games, but playing? Games are forever!

I'm 30 and I work as a personal trainer, I don't feel guilty about playing video games, I have many recreational hobbies too. But if all your activities are sedentary that's when you should assess yourself.

...wth? at least say going clubing or something. o wait, that's 21, at least that's when you can admit it.

I was playing video game the most during college, so i don't see the problem.
If you are working, then you might run into issue w/ not having enough time to play (even though you finally have the money to buy all the games you want, well, most of them anyway).

20 is definitely too old to be playing video games. You should feel ashamed.

20 years old? Wow you're practically a dinosaur. Does your back hurt at all yet? Wow... a real live 20 year old. Arthritis probably makes it hard to type don't worry you don't have to respond.
