Actually I think that video games are great for older players.
I'm pushing sixty myself and love rpgs and I had felt sort of like an oddity (having really only started playing video games about a decade ago). But in the interim, I've been surprised to meet quite a few older players too, so with a nod and a wink to those who've manifested a bit of ageism in this thread; please leave the geezers alone!
Grats to you Cap'n. I pushed past that 60 wall - and have no intention of giving up my RPG addiction - started with D&D back in the 70's and never stopped. Besides, a guys' gotta have someplace to hide from career, spouse and teenage daughter (yes, this geezer managed to squeeze out a kid not that long ago)- bless 'em all, but some days....!! (same goes for the gals out there, dodging spouses).
Hell, I met my wife gaming and we raided together in Everquest for years.
