    65? I feel young with my 35 years old! It's great to see people playing and interested by video games at all ages.
    There's no age limit (and Nintendo understood that, look at their TV ads, they don't display teenager anymore, they even show old people playing with the family)
    People saying games are for kids are the one who don't know what they are talking about. there are games for all ages, just pick the one you like.

    I wish you to like video games again for a long time (You have even more time to play if you are retired from work, I envy you)

    Hey, sir. I suggest you play on, there isn't a age limit.

    There is no age limit! Besides, what else would you be doing with your time?

    Age doesn't matter. That's what's so great about video games!

    Gotta love how most teenagers think that the Wii is for babies while they continue to play Call of Duty on their Xbox and PS3 and think that they are so l33t.

    And then there's me, who doesn't give a fuck and plays CoD and Super Mario Sunshine back to back. :D

    you are only as old as you think you are. if you still enjoy gaming, then by all means play video games. i'll be playing arcade machines until i can no longer play them.

    8 or 80.
    No one is to old to play games.
    Be it board games or videogames.

    I feel young at 22 now, even though I feel like a grumpy old fart.

    I'd probably say when you're in your coffin, but hell, have it buried with you.

    As long as you find enjoyment, you're never too old for gaming. Game on!

    I'm 28 and thought I was getting to old. So any ideas on what games you plan on getting or may have already gotten??

    though you could be too young to play some games...

    but I can't really tell when you are too old to play games, since I'm just 17 years old.... even 28 seems pretty far in the future for me.... I am wondering if I would still be gaming by then... but I wouldn't think it is strange if old people game too, it's like reading, young and old people do it, so why doesn't the same thing applies to gaming?

    (off-topic) isn't this thread more general chat than wii by the way?

    Videogames have no age limit, mostly the Nintendo Wii which is a popular console among kids, teens, adults and seniors.
