Never too old, though I would say I have less interest in multiplayer and more in single player games now. A) because annoying/screaming idiots and B) I like to take my time with games, I go at my pace not somebody elses.

On the occaisions I do play multiplayer, thankyou mute button

There is no such thing as being too old for something you enjoy only too young.

But the question is really do you still enjoy the things you like or not? If yes then continue to enjoy it. If no with you not enjoying it anymore then that is when you quit.

44 and still regularly playing. As others have mentioned, it's about fitting it in with everything else. I have a 4 year old and a wife who likes to talk a lot...so it's just a matter of juggling and making sure everybody else is happy while you still get to enjoy your hobby.

Says someone is too old to play video games is like saying single people in their 30s need to get married and have a family.

Games used to be kiddie like so you often stopped playing once you were not a kid anymore. Alot of the modern era games are realistic and adult orientated so I don't think you ever get too old to game.
But if I had to pick an age I'd have to say the age at which you are in a coffin or urn.

My morning laugh: guys in their 30's describing how old they are and still playing (wrote the 60+ year old gamer).
Stop when you want, play as long as you want. My plan is to get a new machine when I retire (soon) so I can play all the latest games I can't currently run. Watching movies and reading only takes up so much time, so beyond my other hobbies and adventures, gaming definitely has a place.

Early 30's and love gaming. Love the competition, love the world building, just love the escape. Now that I've got 3 boys who also love to game, doesn't look like I'll be giving it up anytime soon.

You're never too old to do the things you love.

I am in need of gaming daily. The day I stop playing will be the day I die.

But my gaming genre interest have changed over the years. I can't do fast paced stuff anymore; prefer slower pace games now.

I just remembered that my grandmother loved to play dominoes and cards well into her 60s and 70s. My 50-year-old parents can't seem to get enough Scrabble, and I know plenty of 30 and 40 year olds who partake in table-top games of varying themes. To say nothing of all the communities still playing Magic: The Gathering fans, or D&D.

Why should video games be any different?

There are still people who think video games are for nine-year-olds, so in that sense, 99% of us should be asking that question.

Leroy Jenkins was in his 20's and 30's and was maybe too young to be playing video games.

LEEEEEEEEEEROY! JENNNNNKINS!

EDIT

Aw, damn...this video claims the whole Leeroy Jenkins thing was staged...

I'm in my early 40's and I don't think I'll ever stop playing. My game time has been significantly reduced over the years due to family, but I still enjoy it. My desire to game has gone down though. When I play more than 2 hours in one day, I start to feel like I should be doing something more useful with my time, lol. In my younger days, I would game all day and not give a crap.

I am 51 and cannot stop playing No Man's Sky. I also recently picked up Wreckfest and Ace Combat 7 a few months ago. Love to play. Can't wait to play some more tonight.

I have been playing video games since the original PONG home console. I still remember the day I went to Putt Putt and played Space Invaders for the first time. Soon came Asteroids and then Defender. I was hooked.

I guess I will quit when I can't see anymore.

It appears the only age limit is for online multiplayer and even that isn’t a fixed rule.

I’ve personally been playing since Atari VCS was new and still enjoy it. I am trying to slow down on purchasing because I just don’t have as much time to play lately, maybe when I retire but that’s still a few decades away w/o a lottery win (but that’s not a game I play).

Anyway, as long as you enjoy it and it isn’t adversity impacting your personal/professional life, no reason to stop.

When your hand to eye coordination is that of a toddlers. Even then, pong is good for that.

Video games are a medium. A very new medium that still carries stigmas of being for nerds or for kids or whatever, but those are fading and will continue to do so. Asking "How old is too old to play video games?" should feel as ridiculous as asking "How old is too old to watch movies?" or "How old is too old to read a book?", because it is. Enjoy art in whatever form it comes in.
