In my opinion, you're never "too old" for anything. Anybody who says that you're too old for something is just an elititist who thinks being an adult means you have to like certain things, which is far from the truth.

 

I do find killing monsters and claiming their drops to be fun, and I will keep finding it fun for years to come.

 

It's nice being able to kill monsters.

I also agree that one is never too old to do something. Although as we get older, we get more responsibilities layered upon us. Like the obligation to earn our own money, feed your own self and your family, additional work responsibilities, doing your own household chores, cooking your own food. All these should come before runescape.

About that, I really think it's important to find a job that you like, and find enough time to do what you enjoy doing with your life.

 

I think enjoying life should be number one priority no matter how old you are.

 

Yeah, doing something like cleaning up clothes and putting plates into the dishwasher is important. And making yourself food is important as well. But that stuff usually takes a few minutes (except making food which can take over an hour) anybody should give him/herself some time to do what they enjoy doing.

I'm 22 now and just recently started playing again.

 

When I first started around 8 years ago, I was friends with a long distance delivery driver who was in his 40s, and another guy around the same age who did virtually nothing but mine and smith.  Both of them were probably the coolest, most helpful guys on my friends list.  I remember the former displaying incredible patience with me when I was going nuts during the Heroes quest.

I know older people who play RS. In other MMO's like WoW, I know tons of older people who play. I'm in my early 20s, and I'm the youngest in my raid team.

Runescape is for hardcore gamers... meaning kids would not play as much as adults who don't have to go to school. My thoughts exactly.

People always look to justify their decisions, and Runescape is no different.


From the empty days of hope, deny the darkness
Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun

Video games aren't football.

Your hand-eye coordination and reflexes don't take much of hit unless you become ill or are approaching 100.

The owner of my company raced stock cars until his mid 60's.

I think the age limit for the average video gamer could be in the 70s or 80s depending on eyesight and health factors.

He just successfully trolled you with "courtesy" and managed to get a reaction out of you. Lol

It's less about the physical capabilities and more about the negative stigma of being past a certain age performing an activity that many believe is intended for a younger audience.

I could say it really doesn't matter, because it honestly doesn't. I was playing RuneScape when it was just a paper mache cutout and still playing it today.

From all that time, i've met tens of thousands of people, all who've which been in a huge array of age brackets, ranging out from 10 to 70, because video games, like TV, are just an endless pool of visual stimulation.

Indeed, although I would say more than just visual.  You're not just completely vegetating - you still need to think and plan, buy/collect supplies, click (although repetitively) to train, etc.


"Fight for what you believe in, and believe in what you're fighting for." Can games be art?

The average gamer is 25 years old. I read it in EGM. :D

Most of us know about The Old Nite who played way back in the day. More then likely was the most well know 'old' player of runescape. I do not believe age has anything to do with playing games....it literally has everything to do if you like games (in this runescape) or not. Health can play another factor as well and I suppose health can eventually make someone stop playing. In my opinion you're never to old to be playing video games.
