Lately I have been questioning my life as a gamer.
Is there a peak or a pinnacle which determines the end of your
life as a gamer? Should being an adult gamer be strictly for those in
the game business? Is it time to "settle down" and hang up the
controller for good? I have had about a quarter of a century of game
enjoyment, isn't that enough?
If you enjoy something so much why give it up? Times have
changed. The average gamer is in their mid 30's. Possibly within the
next decade that age will jump up to the 40's. Isn't it about time we
hand over the reins to the younger generation and quit living in our
"Old School" dreams.
When do we say enough is enough? Must it be when our hands are
filled with arthritis and we cannot hear or see the game any longer?
Your *** right!
If things go my way I will be hosting tournaments in my retirement
home. Maybe by then we will have games you play directly from your mind
or something similar to avoid any arthritic constraints.
Everybody seems to have a crutch, drinking, restoring old cars,
etc. Mine just happens to be picking up a controller. There is just
something comforting about it, almost sentimental. Few things in my
life have managed to peak my interest for 25 years. Why would I ever
give it up?
Of course this is all subject to change. Who knows what the future
will hold. Maybe there will be a Great Video Game Industry meltdown of
Until that time... I will Press Start To Continue.
