Age and Video Games

At what age can it be considered for one's self to be too old
or too young to be playing video games?

Some as old as 90 years old, still play video games; a wii; in the nursing homes.
Some as young as 2 years old, start playing video games at the day care center.

When you grow old, your hand-eye coordination start to really deteriorate
over time, and you start to lose some of your senses. Thus not helping
in the playing of video games, because video gaming is all about
hand-eye and motor skills coordination.

When you start off as a young child, your hand-eye coordination and motor skills aren't fully developed yet and are still developing,
not to mention the lack of literacy skills. Thus not enabling a young child to fully enjoy the playing of video games,
because they can't comprehend, read, or move their thumbs as much as older kids or adults.

But, here is another thing. Marvman's wife gave Marvman an ultimatum.
Quit playing games when he hits the age of 30, and be with his family wholeheartedly.
Or continue to play games, and his family will not be there for him.

So, I ask.

How old or young can you really be to enjoy and play video games,
before it is considered too old or too young?


30? 6? 50? 4?

Rockn.

Zero is a second generation gamer since his father was very much into it before Zero was even born, and still is actually, even at 61. It's hard to recall the exact age, but Zero was playing video games at 4, possibly sooner. As far as the old man's skills are concerned, though, he was kicking Zero's ass in Resistance just a few months ago. Then again, Zero isn't as much into 3rd persons games as he is, but nonetheless, he doesn't seem to have fallen off in the slightest. They say shooters actually improve you eyesight, though.

I would say that under 4 or 5 is "too young." Kids that young really can't appreciate games, escpecially when they lose. There is no maximum age though.

I find it scary that I play Megaman 2 and all the NES games that I played when I was a kid, More then anything else. I think its a matter of when the trend changes and you don't like the new ones. Its like music, pretty soon your not going to be able to stand the new stuff and will just stick with the music that you have always liked.

I was that age when I developed an interest in games, and I'd say I grew up just fine. There really is no minimum age. If you have the motor skills to use a controller, you can play. And with certain PC games, certain Wii games, and probably some Natal games, motor skills are becoming less and less of an issue.

Lol, points for mentioning Wiihab, Marvman!

I don't think there should be an age. Surely, the only two factors that should contribute to whether you can play games or not should be enjoyment and ability.
And, if your a child, whether your parents say you can or not.

That being said, I would choose my family over video games.
