I'm also old enough to remember that lots of older people (relative to me) have been complaining about how crappy "current" movies/music/books/"all entertainment" are compared to the masterpieces of yesteryear ever since I was old enough to understand speech.
It seems that the way we entertain ourselves continues to evolve just as people do. The pendulum swings back and forth, and we can bellyache about it or just look for the fun.
I don't ever plan to give up gaming, although I reserve the right to wince at some of the changes from time to time--but it also helps keep my outlook young when I try to find the fun in the new games.
My dad is 97 (last month) and still watches movies and reads books--and makes a joke a minute and thinks life is lots of fun. It's all about attitude.
I love you. :)

My mom can beast through the Donkey Kong Country games, and I watched her do it on many occasions.
I intend on being a grandparent playing video games with my grandkids. Mario Party (as long as it isn't 1 for blisters and 9 for boringness) never looses its fun factor. Who knows what else there will be to play?
I'm 34 and I'm still gaming. I'd rather do that than mindlessly sit around watching TV on a week night after work when I have nothing else better to do. However, if I wasn't single I would probably game less. In short, never, I will always find time.
