When you stop enjoying it. As you get older you're less likely to play though as you tend to have more responsibilties.

That was my opinion on the subject too, but just wondering what most peoples age is if they play runescape honestly.

People who say that are idiots. Games are not for kids alone. Play whatever you like for as long as you like. Except Barbie horse adventures, i'll burn you with fire.

The whole "You're too old for x" sentiment is generally pretty immature.

I should add that obvious things, such as diapers, are excluded from the above statement.

First high level i met when i joined Runescape was a lady who was in her late 40's early 50's. She helped me a lot when I started playing as did her more "mature" friends. All sorts of age groups play mmorpgs.

I've met a few older mothers playing runescape obviously not [bleep] before anyone cracks a joke about it aha but yeah she was telling me how she helps her son out sometimes playing runescape which is something i thought was pree' damn cool but obviously not everyone talks to there parents about runescape at the dinner table. I can't even talk to them using voice only my hands.. - wonder if anyone will pick up what that means? :P

I know of people from a great number of age brackets, 30's, 40's. 50's heck even 70's who play RS or other MMORPG's.

I don't think it's the physical age as much as the mental age. I don't care if you still wear diapers, but I tend to find a few people who should still be in diapers.

I don't think you're ever too old for video games.

My kids have a different opinion though. :lol:
