Till I'm dead and buried hopefully.
Yeah I worry that it's like crack for him, but thinking back it was like that for me playing pong, commando, Tetris etc.
There is a serious up side though, I can get em to do anything by threatening to hide the controller!
I cycle through genres. I'll decide that RPGs are too much of a time commitment and play something like Mordhau or Apex where I can get some quick matches in and not grind or whatever. Then I'll get sick of FPS and play FIFA. Then after awhile of that, I decide I want to play something with more continual progression and it's back to RPGs.
I'll probably quit when I get a job closer to home. I basically live in two places splitting time between my house where my family is and an apartment where I work. I play a lot of games at the apartment. I play no games at home.
Children like to play, nothing wrong with it.
And like you say .. You have the added bonus of blackmail.
Ive played 1 game in the last 15 or so years (red dead redemption)
It's so weird people talk about growing out of video games, as though you'd grow out of listening to music, reading fiction, enjoying movies, or any other pastime. E-sports is already huge... in another 20 years will people still have the attitude gaming is "kids stuff"?
Arguably video games have the potential to surpass all those mediums due to their interactive nature.
Personally I still buy the odd game, but I am a diehard PC gamer who hasn't built a system in a while, so it curtails my ability to play.
As long as I'm alive. People saying "I'm too old" are the type that complicate their own lives.
I can't nowadays because life keeps me busy, but maybe one day I will. Hell, when I retire I'll probably be on PS12 every day.
I was a pretty big gamer in my late teens and early 20’s. I’m 27 now and barely have time for it, I’ll probably power up the PS4 once a fortnight. Their appeal is definitely waning on me.
I still buy the major releases though, and when TLOU2 & Cyberpunk come out next year I plan to take a day off work, turn my phone off and just allow myself to be consumed by it.
I'm currently playing the Resident Evil 2 remake, its a very good remake, and look forward to Doom Eternal exactly 60 days from today.
Check this out. I was in jail one time in Denton TX., and there was this guy claiming to be the cousin of of Pesci's character in Casino, Nicky Santoro. The character was based on the real life mobster, Anthony "The Ant" Spilotro.
This guy is going around the jailhouse throwing around his weight, name dropping, and he's got a couple malooks following him around in case anyone needs to be dealt with. Nobody challenged him though, nobody said your full of shit or anything. He definitely looked and acted the part but I'll never know.
Not for long. It doesn't matter that I'm 36, I just can't find interest for the upcoming games. I am sick of all bulshit from the big companies, all of rehashed and boring sequels and buggy and unfinished games. Games like Witcher 3, God of War, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Spider Man and RDR2 are too rare these days. I think that Cyberpunk will be my last game before I donate my PS4.
I play a lot less games but I still play games in my 30s. I'm just a lot more selective with how long I play and what I play as my time is valuable. As a kid I used to try to play everything.
There aren't a lot of games out atm that interest me. I'm waitng for Cyber Punk to release next year.
I'm 40 and still play. I still prefer it to just passively watching tv-shows (which I don't do much). Mostly play strategy games now: Stellars, Europa Universalis IV etc. the story-driven games I used to love don't do it fo rme anymore - too predictable and too many cliches. I play a lot less than when I was younger, but if I'm tired, I load up my favourite strategy game and disappear to another world, that's still great.
I’m 45 now, while I don’t play constantly I’ll go in spurts where I play everyday or close to it for a few weeks. Then go months at a time without.
Mainly when some new game I want once in a blue moon comes out I get the urge to play it through
How old are you? If you were 16-17 when sonic came out you are in your 50’s
My wife and I play Minecraft on the Xbox 360 on split screen. Like an hour a day. But when she has a day off work now, she'll put in a few hours while I paint.
I don't really play otherwise these days.
My dad played until he died, I don't see myself being any different
