I'm not quite 30 yet, but I play WoW on and off (depends when my raid group is actually active), I've been playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf all summer on my 3DS, and I'm looking forward to Pokemon X and Y. I've also been playing Civ V and Diablo 3 sporadically since those each came out, which has been a while now...

I was much more into TV-based consoles when I was in college, these days I stick to handhelds and my computer.

Additionally - at "not quite 30" I'm the youngest person in my raid team in WoW, lol. Our main tank is 68. He's a cool dude too.

I'll be 34 next week and I still play video games. I play Sims 2, I don't like Sims 3 but I'm looking forward to Sims 4.

We have Wii and PS3 and pre-ordered the PS4.

DH and I are in the 40+ crowd and play video games. We have played Everquest 1 & 2, StarWars, WoW, FFly, MineCraft, Aion...I am sure there are more. We are big Nintendo fans and are playing Wii right now...lol... DH's cousin and his new GF (20 somethings) came over for dinner, over 8 hours ago, and are still hanging with us. I *might* be getting too old for this.

I'm 37 and play video games. I just bought a SNES so I could play all my old faves. My daughter plays as well as my boyfriend so there's usually one of us playing something with others watching and critiquing : D

48 here and I play when I have time. Right now not really playing just dabbling. I need the PS4.

If I sit down to play I will play Skyrim or Left for Dead on the 360 or on the Wii I Mario Party 8 is always fun.

My dd's have now almost shunned console gaming and play everything online now. I have to say that it is probably the way to go since my other dd who plays Skyrim can upgrade and it is just cooler on the laptop. I do have to say console games are a ripoff in that respect.

My sibs are gamers too. It is genetic I think. My dad was playing bridge online with others with dial up in 1990.

Almost 60 and I have been playing EQ2 for 9 years. The game isn't quite what is used to be (so easy now) and I'm giving myself some time off from raiding, but I still like doing all my daily tasks, unfinished quests, and decorating my guild hall and houses. I believe that video games/word games keep one sharp in the brain department.

Really thinking about getting a new console system.

What don't you like about Sims3?

I'm 56 and have played The Sims since it first came out with 1, then 2, and now 3. Love, love, love playing and spend way too much time at it.

I don't plan to get sucked in to buying Sims4 though, I've spent enough $$ on 3 and just don't want to spend $$ on the next level.

I also love playing Mario on the Wii, and tennis/bowling, and carnival games.

I'm 46 and play Sid Meier's Civilization (usually III). I still enjoy text based games and Atari, but it's been 10 years since I've played any of those kinds of games.

Haven't played consistently in a couple of years, but I will occasionally. The DH and I also enjoy SWTOR, and I will play WoW sometimes. He's been playing EQ.

We used to play a lot of console games, but we never even bought the last gen (PS4, XBOX 360), and no plans to buy the new ones. We've pretty much moved exclusively to PC gaming.

Ii am 52 DH is 58. We have all consoles and many games. We actually played Disney Infinity until 1:00 am the last 2 days! Yesterday we played for 6 hours!!! We LOVE all the graphics and versatility. I played all the Viva Piñata games. He prefers the shooting games like lost Planet and Rainbow. He plays those with our adult DS who lives an hour away by online play! I play the Disney Princess games with our DGD.

My husband is 27 (28 in January) and he still loves his video games and I don't see that stopping. His favourite is the Call of Duty series, but he also plays Gran Turismo, the GTA series, Tomb Raider, Max Payne, Just Cause, etc... at least recently. He used to be big on Warcraft but he hasn't played that since we first started dating.

Next Trip: May 2013 at Port Orleans French Quarter

Got Married! October 1, 2011 in Atlantic City!
