DH (38) and I (41) are gamers. We played EQ1 for years and I only gave up when I got pregnant with DS and found that playing made me feel queasy. The EQNext announcement got us all exited about playing again so while we wait the 18+ months until it is released, we are playing DDO.

My DBrother and his DWife (48 and 49) play daily, so much so that they each have their own PS3. I think they play Call of Duty mostly, but throw others in there too. My Dniece (19) still lives at home with them and she also has her own PS3. They can each have their own TV that way, yet still play together.

DH and I are in our 40's too, we have 2 game systems in the house, but usually only play when one of our DD's is home. Sadly, I am not much of a gamer... it actually makes me sleepy to play. I have been told by DD's many times to "pay attention" or "keep up" My favorite was when younger DD said "Mom, wake up! I am tired of dragging you from room to room!" Oops!

I love MMOS! I am in my 50s and started playing those maybe 10 years ago. Now I have been playing EQ2 for last 3 years. I am the leader of the 3rd largest guild in that game. It is a 21 or over guild and we range from 21 to 80! LOL Love it!

Count me in! Although I'm not 30 yet! I'm mostly a console RPG gamer.

I'm going through a pretty hard dry spell ATM. I'm mostly soaking up all the information I can get about Dragon Age Inquisition. Waiting for The Witcher 3, Infamous: Second Son, and Cyber Punk 2077. I thought the last Tomb Raider was amazing.

I played the Neverwinter Beta and really enjoyed it. My friend wants me to start playing that new FF MMO. Not sure about that one though.

Almost 47 here, and have been playing MMORPG's since before the internet, courtesy of U.S Videotel consoles. That was only Houston-Dallas based. Then the internet opened a whole wonderful world... Played EQ for the better part of a decade, EQ2 for several years, and a whole host of others like Aion and Rift here and there. Currently playing Neverwinter Online while hanging all my life's gaming hopes on EQ Next.

The main game I play is WoW, I have played since the day it was released. I also love the Zelda games, Team ICO games, Final Fantasy games, Ratchet and Clank games, Silent Hill games etc. DH and I are looking into getting Disney Infinity but I'm not so sure about it, I do think DD would love it though!!

62 here, and a PC gamer. I love Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2 -- it's painful that the persistent worlds for those are disappearing! Also a big Bethesda fan, although Oblivion didn't thrill me the way their previous offerings did. I have big hopes for Skyrim, though, now that I finally have a box that will run it. I still play the reboot of Baldurs Gate, and the remake of Baldurs Gate 1 in NWN2 is awesome!

My favorites are RPG and FPS, but I'm odd because I do NOT like FPS on line. Too much twitch play. And MMOs aren't for me either until they get away from the World of Warcraft paradigm of tank, DPS, and healer, because that just ain't how fighting really works.

My surgeon & his interns couldn't stop laughing last January when they saw me playing my DS in bed. They teased me a lot! I'm 67. I play it because it makes me think.

I had an NG tube, and I needed all the fun I could think of!

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.
First, I'll say that I love the scenery and the expansion packs are great.

I just don't like the look of the sims and the whole open world was too overwhelming for me to get in to it. I would try and play for a little while, then I would play some Sims 2 and realize that I just love the game play of Sims 2 more and never really went back to Sims 3. I'm more of a cartoony Sims player and I just love the sillyness of Sims 2.

Since I've been a Sims fan from the beginning, I still buy all of the expansion packs just to have for my collection. I know that's bad.

Over 50 and still playing. We have an X-Box 360 and Wii U. I have a high end racing cockpit setup for racing games and simulations. My Wife likes Skyrim, New Vegas, Bayonetta, Resident Evil etc. We have 2 big screen TVs in the garage lounge so one can play while the other watches television.

DH (36) plays quite a bit. I like to watch, and occasionally help him out. He just finished Pikmin 3 (twice), which was cute, but not as good as previous games.

my father is in his 60s and still plays video games! lol mostly hockey, he's been a huge hockey fan all his life, but he plays some RP games once in a while, as well.

DH and i have the Wii system and we've played tons of games on it. since having my DS a few months ago that's slowed down considerable lol but yeah...we still love video games, too!
