How old till you have to stop playing nintendo?

So this conversation has been brought up a lot recently around me, and definitely gone through my head once or twice (your lying if you say you haven't thought about it once). How old is too old to keep playing and loving Nintendo the way we NFF'ers love and play? Is it when you have kids, is it when your passed 40, or can you always love NFF? I'm 21 and feel very seldomly but when i do...that i might be getting too old? blasphemer I kow, but when and if I have kids I can't see myself being able to play as much just because of responsibilities. Whats your thought?

I think after middle school is when playing Nintendo is looked down upon by other gamers. But that didn't stop me. I remember my freshman year English during the daily journal topic, I was picked to read mine and I announced openly that I had a crush on Princess Zelda.

As you can imagine, this was a great start for my rep in high school.

that's what i mean, why is Nintendo frowned upon by even other gamers after a certain age. I LOVE NINTENDO, why is it so wrong

Because the Wii is now what defines Nintendo and it is the laughing stock of the Hardcore gamers now. Back in my day, there was only one FPS and you only played late at night.

Frankly, I think you can be a gamer for your entire life. Yes there will be times when you can't game as often, but it is important to have something to relax with.

I think my days are further back then your days :P although i could be wrong, but yea I agree that the wii kinda ruined it, but its not like the wii is the first time peripherals have been optimized by Nintendo for the controls of their gaming

I don't think age really matters. If I ever had kids I'd just play games with them. Also about the Nintendo thing; a lot of people around here seem to respect that there are some good games on the Wii and DS. I guess it just depends where you live. Whenever I have people round, they always want to play Wii. Playing Wii games is like peeing, everyone does it but nobody likes to talk about it.
