Resident Evil Village made me nauseous too. I've never had that happen with any of the other thousands of games I've played.

The only game that ever made me feel sick was one of the Twisted Metal sequels some 30 years ago. I still play games today and never had it happen again. It was definitely that specific game too as I tried more than once with the same ill feelings.

Different people have different reactions. I personally got motion sickness when I played Resident Evil Village. That doesn't mean it's a bad game but I'm obviously not going to play it.

Technically these days, gaming is more accepted, so you're never too old. Nor is it considered something that nerds just do as it once was.

Sadly though, in ways you're still looked down on it for it. I've told multiple women that I dev games on the side (that I was talking to as possible dating material), for a little extra money eventually. They look at me horrified and run for the hills, like I just told them I'm a serial killer. So apparently telling women you're smart enough to code a bit and can make a little extra money doing it, is a big no no. I'm sure if it actually made a decent chunk of money from it they'd want to run from that too?

People are stupid. Just do what you enjoy doing. As long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. Who cares what someone (who's probably dumber than dirt anyway) thinks of you and your passions and what makes you happy.

Earlier this year I got out of a relationship with a girl who guilted me for wanting to play video games (in my late 20s.) It feels great to pop in Mario Kart or another favorite from my childhood and just enjoy something that I like, so I say you're never too old, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

I'm about 40, and for me it's less about "Am I too old to play video games" and more "I wish I had the time to play video games"

I tend to be into very long games, and at one point, I was buying 4-5 games a month that sat unplayed. Finally had to go through and sell the ones that werent "I NEED TO PLAY THIS". I still have a decent sized backlog, which has actually made me pretty thankfull that there haven't been a TON of NEED TO PLAYS lately. Finished up God of War: Ragnarok and time to pick the next.

As an aside, but still on topic, I have a friend that always busts my chops "Why are you not playing on hard" for games likes GoW:R. He works for the state, from home, and literally gets to play all day while "working". I'm like "Dude, I do not have the time for that shit" so I mainly play games on Normal unless they are incredibly easy and I'll bump it up a little.

Agree. I just turned 50, and playing video games a few times a week is just my way of life, lol.

Some games are more fun and challenging, or even offer something different on HARD. However, there are games that just don't give you enough incentive to go for the harder modes unless you are hunting for trophies.

You feel "weird" doing something you enjoy?

Sounds like you care too much about what a bunch of strangers think. There are 3 billion people in the world and maybe 10 of them actually care about you, just like you don't care about them. Think about it, how many people in the world do you actually care about if they play games?

One day you're going to die and nothing you have done in your life will have mattered at all and not one single person will care at all that you did or did not play games so why bother caring at all?

Besides its weird to play games as an adult? But it's not weird to buy expensive jerseys, watch football games, be able to quote every players stats, get into heated debates about how a player should have done another play and basically be a nerd for football? What about spending all your time watching reality tv? Collecting junk? Spending all your money and time drinking in bars?

I'm 47 and I play on my PS5 or PC almost everyday. Good friend of mine is 68 and plays battlefield almost everyday. Plant manager where I work loves to play shooters on his playstation. And none of us care what others think, we just do what makes us happy.

Never to old. I'm 43. The pandemic got me back into retro gaming. When there was not much to do, I wasn't on Netflix watching Tiger King like everyone else. I was either doing some online training or doing some gaming. Dusted off my NES, SNES, and Xbox 360. Last year I finally got around to getting an N64 and a Wii, and built up my collections for those. At least Xbox 360 and Wii games are cheap right now in thrift and retro game stores. Games that were selling for $50 and more, you can find for $5 for 360 now. Couldn't get an N64 in the late 90s when they came out as I was saving to go to college.

Hoping to add a GameCube and Wii U to the collection this year.

Iím in my 3rd childhood. Figure that one out youngsters. Hobbies when I was a kid, playing with my own kids, now with all the time in the world and no one to tell me what to do with it! What a wonderful time to be alive! The 21st Century technology takes you to limitless open worlds and other places in time. Who would not want to visit all these different places and have a new adventure either in single or multiplayer. All of my retired friends are younger than me and donít have many hobbies. I enjoy playing the same games as my kids and we play together online. I think younger people are amazed that I can converse about the latest tech and games and share the excitement of new releases. My son and I built a new pc gaming rig last year with a new surround system and I finally was able to get the PS5. Needless to sayÖ..Never too old to game! Every day is Christmas!

It sounds like a lot of people of all ages play video games. In my case, I mostly stopped following the new consoles pretty early on in my later teen years. Even by college I was completely unfamiliar with the newer games of the time.
