    Are awesome! Anyone out there over 30 still playing videogames? (And that doesn't count phone games, such as Candy Crush)

    I'm still obsessed with Role Playing and adventure console games! And I have been playing the MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic for months!

    Even if you don't get many replies, I would say at least half of all men in their 30's are playing these games.

    I love video games. I'm currently addicted to The Sims 3. I'm looking forward to the release of The Sims 4 next year.

    I have played World of Warcraft and tested a few other MMO's during their open beta's. I played WoW for about 3-4 years and finally realized that I needed to step away. I haven't played the game for at least two years and I don't miss it.

    Not me, but DS (34) plays a lot.
    Just got him a couple new ones for his birthday.....but of course, I don't remember the names of them.
    Mostly he plays on X-Box, but also computer.

    54, and playing SWTOR. My game buddies and I started out with WoW, moved on to SWTOR, then Guild Wars 2, then back to WoW, then back to SWTOR.

    We're probably gonna try Star Trek Online soon. Anyone playing that?

    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.

    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
