Do you agree that video games are only for kids? Do you agree that real men dont play video games?

Yup, i know what you mean. There's a time for everything... a time to be serious and a time to play. As long as youre having fun, then continue what youre doing... Dont let anybody dictate what and what not to do.

There should be no age limitation for playing video games. I'm 20, and I still adore those games only suited for children. My dad was 52 and he loved video games.

There's no age limit. Until the time you can't recognize enemy from your character that can be a limit. But as long as you can play and enjoy it, age doesn't matter. It stimulates the brain and it's good for you.

No. There is no age factor when you want to play a video game. What is wrong with stimulating the brain once in a while ? And is there any age that you need to stop having fun ? I play video games once in a while and would continue doing so over the years.

there should be no age limit to doing something you enjoy doing. if a 50 year old man still loves to play video games, then by all means he should continue. same goes for women. im a 34 year old woman, and i love playing video games. i dont get to as often as i would like, but i still play. and ive seen my father, who is 55 this year, sit down with my little sister and patiently try to learn how to play Spryo lol!

I do believe that we have to nurture the kid in us. Playing video games is one of that way. Having fun goes on your entire life. Whatever brings you happiness then you should pursue and continue doing that.

Video games aren't something which belongs to a certain age and do not do for the other ages , I don't agree with who thinks that games are only for kids , they are important for them ,this thing we all know it , but also men can play it too .. the object of games is to get fun from , or to have a knowledge from , so both of this raisons can be apply on young people as old people , so all people can use it , and there is no shame on that in all .

I don't agree with you at all. Video games are not meant for kids only. Even adults can play the video games as well, specially the computer games. There are certain games which involve strategic thinking and only adults are capable of dealing with such games, children don't have any stake in them. Moreover, what I feel is there is no age when a person should stop playing these computer games.

When I was young I always play video games, but when I was an adult, I rarely play the video because playing video games can increase stress for me. For now I like for to find money online, and I have no time already for video games. Sometimes I wish I could play sometime some great games. I think always that it is a waste of time, time is good gold maybe by posting in mylot

Video games aren't only for kids - a few video games produced today are actually directed towards adults, due to their content - like mass effect. I think you should stop whenever you feel like it - there's no set age when someone should stop playing. One should have their own lifestyle choices and if playing video games is his way of relaxing instead of playing golf, then by all means, keep playing.

Gaming is a hobby for all ages. There are so many different types of games out there there is literally something for everyone. I get a lil peeved with the assumption that all games are for kids. That would be the same as saying all movies are for kids.

I think video games are not just for kids,and that is why they make different age ranged video games,after all you have to be I think at least seventeen to buy a game that is labeled M for mature,so that right there shows that adults are supposed to play video games,I am twenty three and I am still obsessed with video games and I always will be,and I can see myself as an eighty year old man still playing video games because they are a lot of fun,and they are a good way to deal with stress.

I think video games isn't age specific. I'm 28 and I still love playing video games after 22 years (I started playing since I was 6, ahhh atari days). And I still don't see myself stopping. Although I can always prioritize things like what's more important to do than video games. It's not an addiction but really more of an entertainment. It just depends mostly if a game is suitable for younger kids and if a game genre really interests you. But if one plays video games and sets aside other priorities in life, that should stop.
