I don't believe in any kind of age "restriction" on video games, MMORPG's or otherwise. If you enjoy games, then play them. Personally I'm 28 and still play games. Hell, my mother played RS for a few years and got on the first page of the Mining high scores for a while. Usually any person who's saying that games are for kids are generally kids themselves.

I used to think I'd quit gaming (and runescape) when I was an adult, but I haven't yet. Oh well maybe I will later.

Yes and no. Runescape is a game that is extremely time intensive. At some point, you get to an age where you literally don't have much time for anything. You are kind of forced into being too old for it...

Well first off, I dislike the fact that their is "ageism" for video games. In my opinion you are never too old to play any video games, yet alone Runescape.

If you're an adult, and by adult I mean you have your life tigether, etc. then personally that would be the perfect time to kick back and play Runescape.

If you're a kid, you have a lot of spare time and that's also a great opportunity to play Runescape.

tl;dr It doesn't matter what age you are as long as everyone can coexist and realize that they'll grow up one day and perhaps still be playing Runescape at an older age.

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

My kids have a different opinion though. :lol:


Ahaaa, i have a feeling when i grow up i'll be on the computer playing games alot while my wife/fiance/girlfriend whatever it is would be doing the other stuff until im asked to do something ahaha. ;)

Haha! This describes me! Gets me in plenty of trouble with the wife too :P

I have several friends from High School who used to play but now consider themselves too old to play, there are even more firends from college who were too afraid to play in case their peers made fun of them for being too old to play the game. The way I see it, if I enjoy it I'll play it no matter what people think about being too old for the game. While obligations have increased as I've gotten older there still always needs to be time to relax and have fun.

I'll be honest, I used to play RS with my dorm room door open. I even got a guy come by and say "Oh yeah, I used to play that. But then high school and college happened. Now the game looks so different. I bet my account is still noob and hackers got to it..." But then I felt weird stares in my back. So slowly I closed my door. Then I realized..."Why do I care?" Now I play in full view of everyone.

I've seen many players in their 30's, several in their 40's and one in their 50's, chronological age has nothing to do with how much you enjoy a game IMO. I know I'll still be gaming for as long as games exist. :P

Everyone makes choices in what they enjoy.......  I think people who row for enjoyment and do it for 50 years are weird......  but then I get called silly for thinking that.....why do I have to be young to play video games?  I find it most odd that its ok for people my age (25) to play call of duty for days on end but I cant play RS?  I dont hide that I play it but I also dont advertise it....

I don't think you're ever too old. RuneScape may be geared towards teens, but I've met many players who were parents.

The thing is gaming as a whole is actually a predominantly adult driven industry the "average" gaming being like 25 or something and generally rising as the 'gaming generation' (like 80s/90s ish kids) continue to get older.

The notion games are for kids is not only stupid, its not even statistically accurate and I'd agree with the sentiment others mentioned - you do what you enjoy it doesn't matter your age, people who try and claim you're 'too old gaming' tend to be immature kids who think they know it all.

I started playing Rs when I was 12, now I'm well enroute to 25 and I don't see myself quitting anytime soon; if anything I've become MORE of a gamer recently since I can (sometimes) afford consoles and games unlikely pocket money brats who can only drool or hope daddy pays for presents.

The fact there are people who wear the X Year cape pretty much IS the proof that gaming is for all ages.

Too old to play Runsescape? Never!

 

I was "old" by this thread's definition when I created McFaire twelve years ago. I may be away for long stretches, but I always return for binges.

 

For me, it's not really a question of being too old for games, or even a question of having too many responsibilities. It's just that a lot of things go on in real life that are more exciting, more fun, more thrilling, more compelling, more satisfying.

 

But there is something about Runescape that always calls me back eventually. McFaire Lives!
