Absolutely not! Getting older just means you can buy more games. You could even use some of that increased income to purchase some old consoles or play some vintage PC games for a big great slap in the face of nostalgia. A little GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64 anyone?
Gain a Lot
The point is, you are never too old for video games. Playing video games can help increase your problem-solving skills, build motivation, teach you to move past failure to accomplish your goals and they can even improve your overall mood. Remember how you felt when you beat your favorite video game? It was a great feeling to save Princess Peach for the first time from the evil clutches of Bowser or putting an end to Doctor Eggman’s world-conquering dreams.
Moderation Is Key
Please don’t go find your significant other and tell them they’re wrong because this guy on the internet says video games are good for you. They are good for you, but they are only beneficial in moderation. If you are sitting on the couch at night until bedtime with your brain stuck in Titanfall land other essential parts of your life will be sacrificed. Say, that relationship with your significant other or time you could be spending with your child.
As you continue gaming through out your life you will without a doubt see game genres played to death. I challenge you to continue playing and fully immerse yourself in their worlds instead of becoming an expert at Bingo. Because the day you stop playing will be the day that a publisher changes the face of gaming. Who would have thought slingshot-ting birds into a group of egg stealing pigs could start a multi-million dollar phenomenon?
