When did I get so old?

I am 38 and I have been playing video games longer than most of you have been alive. I see everyone telling their age which seems to be the early 20s for the most part. Most everyone I know does not playing video games, but I have not been this excited about a game since Halo 2 or KOTOR. Anyone else in the same boat? Edit: I am amazed at all the responses. Thank you all. See all of you on the 9th. Xbox One: pepelewe

  • GT: Da Crawdad Man. I am 27 in the military will be playing with some really close friends of mine. If you would like to play add me sometime we could always use some new faces. I am in Hawaii but took a week off of work so the time difference should not be an issue. Also if anyone else is interested just add me. Me and all my friends who I play with are very competitive gamers, but at the same time are mature adults who do not deal well with annoying kids.

    • I just turned 58 and still game with my son who is 30. We have been gaming together since he was 5. We both have Destiny pre-ordered and are ready to roll Sept. 9th. Gaming has always kept us connected and close, even in our busy lives of work and family. I wouldn't trade my gaming time with him for anything.

      • You've almost got ten years on me (29 on the 17th) but I know what you mean. The first game I bought was NHLPA Hockey 93 on The MegaDrive! My still working 1st game is older than most of the people in the forums :-) XBOX ONE GT= DOUBLE VODKA

      • You got old 18 years ago. On a serious note, I agree with out in the KOTOR thing even though I'm 18. I never played Halo 2, but KOTOR was THE game for me to play when I was younger.

          • I'm 44 and have been playing games since Pong in the 1970s. I'm pretty psyched about Destiny, but would be more psyched to hear about a release date for Fallout 4!
